Eaten here several times, in the bar and the restaurant (Same menu). A great spot on the red river, in the summer the outdoor seating is nice. Food is pretty good, the appetizers and burgers are good, as are the main entrees. Good food for a reasonable price and a great atmosphere. It's a great old brick building with wood... More

If you want to get away from the typical franchise restaurants in Fargo, try Ushers. It is an old stone building along the Red River. Usually not too crowded. Good food. Interesting place.

The experience begins when you turn into the grounds. The 1930's stone building is beautiful, and although the dining room wasn't intimate, the windows and the view are superb. Our appetizer was excellently prepared and presented, the entrée was above average, the desert much too large but yummy. All in all, a very enjoyable evening. I'd urge anyone to share... More

Usher's is great place to eat with friends or with a significant other. The pub fare is varied, delicious and reasonably priced. The entrees are more expensive, but the quality is good. We were a little disappointed in happy hour as it is not that much cheaper.

I really like the atmosphere of this place. We could not sit in the dining room as there was a private event in there, but the bar is fine and our booth was comfortable. The Ribeye here is 14 ounces so we paid the $2.00 charge to share it. It was cooked just as we ordered it, but as another... More

The food is good wether for lunch or dinner. Nice outdoor patio for an evening glass of wine or cocktail. This location is for sale again so better check it out before it's gone.

The food was good and smelled great. The atmosphere was fantastic and the view, definitely wonderful. My steak was good but a bit bland. The waiter took bread to other tables but not ours. I thought the walleye was all you could eat but the 2 guys at our table were never offered additional fish. I somewhat wished I would've... More

Outside dining here is wonderful.Great view. Usually the food here is good but it seems like every so often we have a problem. Last night there were 4 in our party. 2 ordered the elk burger, one ordered rare and the other medium rare. The medium rare was done fairly well but the one ordered rare was very well done.... More

This old, historic building built in the 1930s was quaint and beautiful in its setting on the river. However, we were extremely disappointed by the food selection...not much, total bar food type, and not much variety. Then our service was horrible that night....even to get our beer and wine (which you'd think a bar would make happen FAST). Luckily, it... More

Usher's House sits on the edge of parkland overlooking the Red River in a WPA Depression era historic building. The front half of the building houses a wood paneled tavern and the back area contains a striking glass-walled white table cloth venue with its own menu and a stunning view of the river [and an approaching thunder and lightning storm...
