What a variety of burgers! I added the Border Burger with avocado, tomatoes, and salsa. An excellent combination on a big burger. They also had a good variety of beer and drinks. The service was prompt and friendly.

We ordered the chips and southwestern dip as well as the Thai lettuce wraps. SCRUMPTIOUS! It was delightfully surprising to see an array of options (from Cajun, to Thai,... More

We're always guaranteed a great meal along with great service! I make an attempt to try nearly everything on their menu, but always go back to the Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps. Delish and satisfying!

Arrived late and was looking for dinner in downtown Bemidji. Great local/dive bar decor. Friendly staff and greeted and seated immediately. Basic menu. Good tap beer selection and full service bar. Opted for the ribeye special and was not disappointed. Perhaps a bit too fat on the perimeter, the steak itself was cooked to perfection, succulent, and seasoned to perfection.... More

Great atmosphere and amazing food! Not your typical bar food. Had the PBJ burger and Brunch burger! Cheese curds were to die for and Guinness onion rings were like none other! Just very satisfied with food and staff!!
