I had a taco wrap. It was fresh tasting and good. Not sure why it was served with French dressing as I did not ask for French dressing. But it was on the side so okay. People with who ordered buffet got good chicken and Swedish meatballs. I would go there again. Just has good local character to it. They... More

food is average to slightly above. love their reubens. Service has been good when I have eaten in. Food prepared in a reasonable periuod of time Also have takeout. Their evening buffet is pretty average. Overall no major complaints but agree with another reviewer their morning coffee could be stronger and better tasting!

Folks, clean your coffee maker and upgrade your brand of coffee. I have been there a few times and it is horrible. There are other things that surely could be upgraded, but coffee? seriously? please fix it.

When we arrived at the restaurant the sign told us to wait to be seated. It was an hour before closing so the restaurant was pretty empty. A waitress walked by us three times without even a smile or an acknowledgement that we were there. After about 5 minutes I told my family that we would wait 30 more seconds... More

This rest. has been here for decades. The owner/operator is a fine person who works hard to run a good ship. Their pizza (weird I know but it's good) is a great choice. The broasted chicken...excellent. Anything from the bakery case is a great choice. Sadly as others have reported the hot beef sandwich just isn't historical! I don't care... More

The restaurant was not overly busy. It was very warm in the restaurant. Two of our party ordered the chicken fried steak breakfast. The gravy on the meat looked... More

From the best I can tell, this is about your only for a beer and burger in Crookston. Not the best beer selection, but there are nightly specials. The burgers are okay, but then again, you're (unfortunately) in Crookston. There's a lot on the menu, and it seems a bit ambitious, so I haven't ventured farther from just burgers. Just... More

Was home visiting family and was very disappointed in this place, since the other restaurant in town was packed and we didn't want to wait. I had a large burger and really did enjoy it but couldn't figure out why is was served on 1/2 loaf of bread so the meat didn't come close to covereing the bread and it... More
