If you like Burgers and odd things

I really enjoyed this place, the burgers were cooked the way I ordered. Service was friendly and fast. It had different tastes that I would not usually put together but they tasted great. I like unique things and if you do to, this is definitely a place to try.

I can't remember the name but I had chicken in marbled rye with cheese, and sauted onions and mushrooms and it was very good!! The Mac and cheese is nicely not over seasoned, so I was able to control the salt in it. The peanut butter pie was good, more like a ganache than the fluffy, mile high pie I... More

Whenever we return to Iowa to visit family, we always try to enjoy the traditional, beloved fried, breaded pork tenderloin sandwiches. This place is fairly new and was recommended. The three of us who ordered the pork tenderloin sandwiches ALL agreed: Dry, over-fried, extremely thin, and little flavor. The one person who ordered a burger said it was great. Sides... More

The portions are large and the burgers are pretty good.Mac and cheese could use a little oomph. Cheese curds tasty, but dripping with oil. Overall, we eat there every now and then, but it's not something that I crave nonstop.

Oddfellows is unique looking the moment you walk in. The decor is wild and fun and keeps you looking around at everything. I appreciate uniqueness. The appetizers are terribly overpriced. Who charges $10 for guacamole!? We decided not to bother with appetizers for the price. The burgers are a good size and decent. I still think they are a bit... More

The burgers are great and the matching tater tots were an excellent idea. Drinks are kinda expensive, but the food probably makes it worth it. Aaron in the bar took good care of me.

We were excited to try based on reviews and photos. A little disappointed. Perhaps it was just what I ordered. My son really enjoyed his pulled pork burger. I had the green chile pepperjack, not the best. The atmosphere was fun and worth a try again with a different menu choice.
