Great Lunch

Come here for a great lunch. The burgers are made fresh and are huge. The wraps are good and they usually have a special that's not on the menu. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Burgers are always good, Stella is always cold. Tony is the best at customer interaction and making you feel at home. Hand dipped onion rings are perfect. Menu has a good selection. Well worth trip downtown.

This place has one of the most unique menus in Bemidji. They not only have a wonderful happy hour deal they also have daily specials that are extraordinary. We love coming here for lunch and supper. Best food in town.

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. I had the cheeseburger and fries. The burger was fixed to perfection, the fries were unbelievable. I have no idea who they have cooking,... More
