Eclectic little place

Great food. Clean, friendly service. Burgers are their business and they do their business very well. Neat atmosphere and nicely decorated.

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.

We ate at Oddfellows for a birthday celebration. The food was good, although one of the menu items I ordered, the grilled salmon ceasar salad was not available. I had my second choice, a burger, with a side salad. The burger was ok, but the salad was really good with lots of interesting vegetables and beans. My husband ordered the... More

We love Oddfellows burgers! They are the best in Ames. Wait time after you place your order is on the slower side, but not the the point of ridiculousness. Fun atmosphere too!

We visited with a group of 9 people on a Saturday afternoon around 3 pm. The waitress was very nice but not attentive. There were only 4 other people in the entire place and there were many mishaps with our order. Salad never arrived, took 10 minutes to get napkins, she needed to be reminded about items that had been... More

The atmosphere of this burger place is so different and there's so much to look at on the walls. And the burgers are fantastic!
