Every time we go to Bemidji, We go to the Blue Ox for burgers. They are so good! They are also very large, so two could share one, but I always take my other half home because they are just as good re-heated!

The food was good, we a had to wait about 20 minutes to get our food though, but there was two seperate groups of 12 people, the waiter did keep us informed, which was awesome. The gophers were up playing the beavers for the weekend.

The outside tables were great, it was the inside that was tired looking and simply nothing to come back to. Food was so so.

The service was terrible. We waited over an hour for our food to arrive, with hardly any attention from the waitress. The food tasted freezer burnt, and my husband and I both left feeling ill. It seemed the help catered only to patrons their own...More
