We went to Basque Norte this past weekend with some friends and had a wonderful dinner. The sangria is the best and you must try it. I had the ribs and like always, there was too much to eat. We will be back!!!!!!

Basque Norte has been a family favorite dining experience for over 21 years. So, I wasn't surprised when my almost 21-year-old daughter asked if we could celebrate her birthday at Basque Norte. I was happy to accede to her wishes. As there would be seven in our party, I called for reservations and was able to make them easily at... More

There is more served than we could eat at one sitting. I seems pricey until you see what you get. Soup, salad, spicy red beans, potatoes, pasta, bread, entree and ice cream are all included. I had a full rack of pork ribs and they were excellent. My wife ordered a salad al la carte and we still brought food... More

I can not say enough good about this place! It is a family business and they make sure you are treated like family. The porterhouse and filet are fantastic! It's family style and they bring you so much food you will need to be taken to your car in a wheel barrow by the time you are done! They bring... More

Came here for dinner before dancing at the Elks. Food was delivered family style and seemed pricey for having to serve yourself but the quality was excellent. I had the filet and it was thick and cooked to perfection. My husband had the Rib Eye and it was also cooked to perfection and they both were extremely tasty. We will... More

Not only is the quantity of food impressive, but the taste! First, there is a relish tray and bread and butter. Then a course of salad, beans, and spaghetti served family style. With the main course comes a bowl of green beans and onions and a bowl of roasted potatoes, which were absolutely second and third-helping worthy! The lamb was... More

We were looking for steak and veggies for our low-carb diet and we were happy with the result here at Basque Norte. However, they are set up for multiple courses and not having them all made it a bit on the expensive side for what we ate. The filets were very good though, as was the service. Atmosphere is kind...

We had not been here for a couple years, now I wonder why? The food comes in several courses, each better than the last! The soup was especially good but it changes so I can't say what to order. It IS a bit expensive but we got to choose our side dishes and then split the meat and it was... More
