My husband and I had the Philly sandwich. It was very good! Bun fresh, melted cheese just right. Place clean. Place decorated with farm stuff. We were there mid afternoon on a Sunday. Not too busy, Service was good, she checked on us several times. Will go back.

This must be the place to eat, it was very busy, the service was good and the food was a little greasy but tasted good.

Wanted to try a nice little restaurant downtown, but they were closed on Sunday afternoon. Service was excellent. Food ok.

It's a great greasy spoon breakfast with large portions & reliable flavor. Lunch & dinner not recommended. Cavernous space invokes farm life... I guess. Their motto, "Not a half bad place to eat," pretty well sums it up.

We stopped at the West Forty restaurant on a Sunday morning. Luckily we beat the church rush! Waitress was fantastic. No rushing us to order. Brought coffee and water right when we sat down. She gave us a few recommendations. When the food was brought to our table it was hot. Even the toast! Portions were huge. We were very... More

Another great find in Park Rapids. Really good food and a very intelligent waitress. There was a large party in the dining room, about 20 people. The waitresses came over and said she didn't want to hurry us, but she would really like to get our order into the kitchen before the orders of the 20 people. Wow! I was... More

My husband and I look forward to going to West Forty for our anniversary. Last night was the worst meal we've ever had. We were greeted by our waitress and my husband mentioned it was our anniversary and that we've been coming there to celebrate for the past several years. She mentioned that we would get a special dessert and... More

My husband and I spent three days in the Park Rapids and Walker MN areas to ride on the ATV trails. The first night we spent in Park Rapids and ate at the West 40 Restaurant. I had looked online for the list of local eateries and we picked it from that list without reading reviews until we were sitting... More

Our party of eight had reservations for lunch on Labor Day weekend Sunday. Inside the restaurant is very tastefully decorated with old farms signs and an antique tractor at one end of the dining room. Not a quiet place to eat by any means (1 large dining room that seats approx. 100 people), but not excessively noisy either. We were... More

My family go here every time we are in town. It's kind of a tradition to go to West Forty for fried chicken. Definitely better than any chain, but nowhere near as good as homemade. However the servers are pleasant, prices are good, portions are plentiful and it's got a great atmosphere. Make sure to check out the tractor they... More
