Nice bar with good food

We stopped after a wine tasting at another location and enjoyed a good burger and beer meal. Service was good and the burgers were nicely done. We will go back.

It was a Friday night. The place was busy. That is no excuse for crummy food. I ordered the steak sandwich. The server asked me how I wanted the steak done. I said medium rare. Little did I know that the steak was probably cooked yesterday, and hardly medium rare. It was a joke to ask me how I wanted... More

You think a bar named Cowboys would have pretty lousy food and cheap drinks. NOT so! We had really great hor'd, some pretty fabulous wines and a really fun and attentive waitress. Not bad for a 'country' stop a little off the lake in Nisswa!

Nice outdoor patio, good food with a good value. The service was ok a big group of people could fill the bar or the patio up so you might have to wait. worth the wait though.

When we arrived, there was a severely intoxicated man laying on the bench outside the front door of the restaurant. This was not a good first impression. We each had a burger and fries which were average tasting. While many tables were empty, they hadn't been cleared yet from previous diners. Our server did her best to clear tables in... More

We chose Cowboy's for our last supper meal while staying at Causeway on Gull for a winter vacation. The location was perfect and the bar was clean and cozy with a very appealing store front decor. The food was very good and inexpensive. We were a group of 4 and were well-cared for. We all tried the fish fingers which... More

Our large family did Cowboys last weekend, and I was impressed with the quality of food and great prices. While the place is small, the were ver accommodating. I had eaten here when it was Maddie's, but I appreciated how thy lightened the place up inside. If I could change one thing, it would be to have more outside seating.

Went here based on other reviews and so glad we tried it. Fish sandwich was great--actual flaky fish, not mashed up and breaded. Very good. Our younger son ordered and loved the fish sticks and he usually turns his nose up at fish. We sat out on the deck (wish it didn't face a busy road, but it was still... More

We enjoyed Cowboy's so much, we ended up eating there 3 times during our week-long stay in Nisswa. We sat on the gorgeous patio twice, and once inside. All were great experiences. My husband had the grilled cheese, and I had the fish sticks each time we went because they were just so good. Nothing fancy, but fresh, and cooked... More
