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

This is our summer hang out! We live close and go here often. The staff is always happy and friendly. Make sure you try the fish sandwich and the fish sticks are awesome.

I always eat in the bar area because that's where most people are! This is a place you can go eat by yourself and end up visiting with someone next to you. Small burger with pepper jack, fried onions, and an egg on top. Yum! Cowboy's Catch is a favorite with sweet potato fries. Although known as a burger joint,,... More

Went for lunch, very good food. Not fancy but not really bar food. The butter nut squash soup was delicious.

This restaurant/bar in Nisswa is a good place to grab a sandwich with friends. The waitress (with the really really long braided hair) was wonderful and very friendly and efficient. Open after 7:00 pm on a Sunday, which wasn't true of other places in September. Not fancy, but comfortable. Try it, you'll be glad you did.
