The restaurant has a large room in the back that overlooks the river. The pub food includes shepherd's pie made with lamb, bangers and mash and various burgers. I had a chicken salad sandwich on a croissant that was very good. My daughter had sweet potato fries, served with a sweet chili sauce that complemented the fries. Prices are reasonable... More

My husband and I stopped here the night before Thanksgiving. They had all you can eat Walleye. I had the Broiled ones and my husband had the deep fried. Both were excellent. And the tartar sauce was amazing!! We sat in the back and had a nice quiet evening. I would love to go back in the daylight as they... More

I had not been here in many years, quite possibly before it was Usher's House, but because I had not been impressed then we had stayed away a long time. What a mistake! I was so glad that we decided to give it a try for lunch. The front of the building is the bar, which I believe has a... More

This castle-like structure has some interesting history. Apparently at one time it was called the Red Bear and an actual bear was on site in an enclosure. The patio still overlooks the "cage" and also provides a great view of the Red River which divides Fargo and Moorhead. This was one of the best meals I've ever eaten.The Chicken Breast... More

Usher's is a historic location in Moorhead, just across the 1st ave north Red River bridge from Fargo. Food has always been great. Taps run with quaulity brews and special house drinks call for more. Parking is perfect and the river views breath taking. Summer on the patio is a local favorite. Service gets two thumbs up!

There are a lot of food choices for everyone (I went for a late brunch/early lunch) and every taste. You'll find sports viewing at the bar, or just the loveliness of an autumn day if you're in the dining area. I'm sure it's grand to visit year-round, but I prefer the fall. The views of the riverbank and trees compliment... More

Have heard about this place forever, and finally decided to try it. And you should too! We sat on the patio, which could be my new favorite, especially on Thursdays since they have live music. Excellent service and the food is great too. Chef Carr has a superb palette and it comes across in his food. We loved the scallops... More
