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

While on a recent trip to Crookston, we ate at this restauraunt twice. Once was in the evening. The food and service were adequate. The next meal was the following morning. 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

After sending my first plate back and not receiving my second until everyone had finished I took one bite and was wondering what I had on my plate. This place really needs to check the temperature on their steam table before someone gets sick. If your meal is not right and you send it back one would think that the... More

Very reasonably priced restaurant in Crookston. Food is good and you can get breakfast all day long. Cleanliness is not a top priority. Men's bathroom could use updating.

Our party of 4 had the buffet. The chicken and the meatballs and gravy were good. There wasn't much of a selection for a buffet, however there was a beverage included. The restaurant is in the process of being remodeled so would probably give it a second chance if in the area.

We arrived at 9:30 am on a Sunday. Restaurant was busy but we were seated quickly. Service was good. We ordered off the menu. Food prep time was about average. The food was not hot when served. Will give them another chance when we are in the area again.
