Food was OK, could have been better for the price luckily we went during happy hour so the ridiculous price of the few wings we got was a bit more in mind with what I'd expect

I guess I'm pretty fussy. I expect good food for not much money. It doesn't happen often. I was very pleased to find several options I'd wanted to try on their menu and I actually loved the one I chose.

Chose 209 Bar based on trip advisor rating. Wasn't sure what to expect from a restaurant/bar, but OMG!! I've been to a lot of restaurants but I have never in my life tasted food like this.

Stopped in on a cross-country road trip. The man & I shared the mushroom burger with the blend patty & the spicy jalapeno burger with the rings & curds. Ten days, over 2600 miles, many meals & this was easily the best. You would be missing out if you didn't try a burger here.

The 209 Bar is on a side street, a bit off the main drag, of downtown Bemidji; it has a storefront look and you might pass it by if you weren't specifically looking for it. But WOW, when you enter and realize first how many people it holds! And how good the service is! And most of all how great... More
