Down Home Good

If you want some solid, family style home cooking, at a good price, the West Forty is worth a stop. The menu (breakfast, lunch and dinner) is solid American country cuisine - not gourmet, but good basic. I had a pork chop special with all the fixin's! Very good. They even let me replace my potatoes... read more

Great food at reasonable prices. Atmosphere is fun--old time farming equipment and signs. A casual, relaxed atmosphere.

This is a fake cracker barrel, which I hate. If you want run of the mill stuff this is your place. Food was ok. Menu very generic. I had the fish sandwich with fries. Fish hot fries cold. Service was fine and the place was packed.

Our meal and our service was great as usual. Growing up on a farm, I always enjoy the signs, tractors and trucks that help create the rural atmosphere at this restaurant. Good home cooking at this restaurant!

This used to be a favorite of ours in Park Rapids. This summer, something has changed. We have tried it several times and the disappointment continues. The most recent visit this past weekend we did not even get waited on. A waitress seated us, and that was the last we saw of a server in person. We left after 15... More

Came here for breakfast- took over an hour to get our food. Inattentive waitress. Average food. There are better places in town.

Stopped in for a quick lunch with a few people. Took a little longer then we would have thought, but the food was good and was a very good price. Farm setting inside was nice. Pretty clean as well. I would stop again.
