This is really a 4+ rating. Our server was outstanding - she was very patient in answering questions about vegetarian and gluten-free options. Our group ordered fish & chips (very good), vegetarian shepherds pie (also very good, although would have preferred less mashed potatoes and more vegetables), Brigid’s Irish Whiskey Mushroom soup (excellent), and the lamb sandwich (good, but a...

We were there on a Friday night with friends. The place filled up fast. The service was very good and the server knew which beers to recommend according to your palate preference. It was a very pleasant experience. We sat at a bench/table w/ 2 chairs across. The bench is wood and no cushion...it was away from the music, however~so... More

Friday evening at Brigids' is a very nice experience. The clearwater hot club playing salsa jazz, croation blues starting early(7pm), the special burger and sides and a good berverage plus great service. This all goes together to make a very nice experience.

I stopped at Brigid's Cross Irish Pub and Restaurant because it's an Irish pub. I haven't stopped raving about how fresh their food tasted. I got Leah's Grilled Cheese (sorry if the name isn't 100% correct, but it doesn't appear on their online menu). It was phenomenal! My friend had the Pub Chicken sandwich and said it was delicious.

Went to this restaurant twice in one week and had the pan-fried Walleye both times. It was cooked perfectly and it's true Minnesota fish. Mashed potato side was good and a very fresh salad topped it off. I thought the prices were reasonable, around $16 . They have a large beer offering, including some local but is very family friendly.

Brigid's Cross is located in downtown Bemidji, just across the street from a wonderful book store and the Paul Bunyan Playhouse. It serves good Irish fare as well as good Irish beer! The service is sometimes a little slow but the wait is usually worth it. Prices are good and the atmosphere is almost like Irish!!!

This restaurant's menu isn't going to win points with "foodie" types, but it is good. We stopped in after deciding the wait at another restaurant was too long, and were satisfied with our choice. The "beaver dropping" appetizer (cream cheese and jalapeno peppers in deep fried in wonton wrappers) was good, and so was the fish and chips. Our waitress... More

Food is good. I had wild rice cakes and they were very good. But the service... or should I say "what service?" After we were seated, the bartender came over to the table to take drink orders. . He was very abrupt and grumpy. Acted like he was doing us a favor to talk to us. . Awhile later, a... More

My whole family enjoyed this place for our first dinner in Minnesota. We only had the fish and chips and the Walleye fish sandwich but I can say that both were excellent as was the beer (including several local/regional ones).
