This is a great location with a good variety of foods and drink. The building is special and a must stop for those who appreciate special architecture.

Wonderful atmosphere located right next to the river with beautiful trees surrounding it. The food is terrific, and the menu is extensive. Good for lunch or for a nice sit-down dinner. I really love the burgers and the fish dishes.

Located in historic Davy Memorial Park in Moorhead, MN, the building was originally built in 1936 as an American Legion and has transformed over time. An old bear cage is visible from our floor-to-ceiling glass windowed Dining Room, a remnant from when the land was once a zoo. Today we are a restaurant and event venue, with an atmosphere inspired by old English pubs and a menu crafted to perfection by our chefs. Customers say it’s the best of both worlds -- fine dining and chef-inspired cuisine, in a casual, cozy setting. And when you look out the window, you simply can’t beat the Usher’s House view.
