Happy hour!

Fun place for happy hour. Had the 1/2 off apps and drinks and everything was great. Family friendly as well - we had a combined group of five and everyone was happy with their selections.

From the outside this looks like an average bar, but the food here was amazing. We are 2 kids, 7 and 9, and they actually let the kids order a smaller portion of the adult meals, which we were all impressed with. We mainly ordered their specials and they were all good. Mac and cheese side was very good also.

Just a great hometown bar atmosphere, with extraordinary food. Our table had Cajun steak tips, an awesome burger topped with fried egg and a chicken BLT with avocado.... We all raved about the quality of the meals. If you ever are anywhere close, do yourself a favor and stop in.

All I can say is great food and atmosphere. This is a must stop. Fish tacos are awesome! Clean, friendly and great food.

Stopped for dinner while traveling through I had the flat iron steak salad which was quite good though could have been served with a bit of bread. My husband had a flat bread which was supposed to ben con and onion. Two ingredients neither of us could taste. It had a spicy canned tomato flavor which was not very good.... More

Wonderful food. I had the southwest chicken wrap. Had a nice bite to it. My husband had the walley fish tacos. we all tried them and loved them. My daughter had the b squared burger and my son had a burger. We really like that you could choice what side you wanted, not just regular fries, at no extra cost.... More

Bar 209 has been a great spot for me to have a great burger, apps, or just a beer for years. they have great 2 for 1 specials and their food is outstanding. They have a choice of doing a 50/50 burger sausage mix for their burgers...DO IT. Bar 209 is my Downtown favorite for sure!

We spent a week near bemidji and ate here 3 times. Great atmosphere. Burgers were really good with plenty of options and some interesting choices. LOVED the cheese curds. They did a great job accommodating gluten free requests-even making their battered fries without the batter. Highly recommend!

The fried cheese curd. How has no one else made this a thing? I had the B Squared burger with 20% pork. So good. Couldn't finished it as I added the Guinness rings and fries curds. The rings where a bit wet. Other than that, food was great, fast, hot and filling. I will be making the trip back just... More
