Good Dinner, Loud Bar

I got in to the adjacent Quality Inn on a Sunday night just before the kitchen closed. I was seated near the bar, which had some very loud, obnoxious patrons. However, my server was perky and attentive. Arriving from Northern California, I was delighted that they had fresh Canadian walleye on the... read more

The Canteen is a vibrant place to spend an afternoon or evening with friends & family. It is one of few non chain places in town and offers good food and variety at average price points for the area. Being right off of the interstate it is easily accessible to our family, making it a known meeting place and a... More

Undoubtedly the best food in North Platte. Consistent meals. Good (but not great) service. The steaks are excellent and the pasta dishes are very good. The wine list could be improved but still the best in North Platte by far.

Consistently wonderful food at this place. Steak tips with mushrooms are the sleeper best item on the menu. The steak tidbits are from the handcarved steaks that the staff prepares each day. The au gratin potatoes are out of this world.

We were traveling from St. Paul, MN to Park City, UT and stopped in North Platte overnight. The trip advisor ratings on this place are pretty extreme from one end to the other so we were skeptical. I ordered the mahi mahi and my husband ordered the ahi tuna (with shoestring fries). They were both amazing! Both were cooked perfectly... More

Took over an hour to get a burger which had sat under the heat lamp until the bun was a cracker. The prices are too high and the selection minimal.

Great service, food was good! Waiter service was very good! Nice atmosphere! Area for improvement: would like to see a handicap accessible on the South. I had to go through the main hotel with my 88 year old mother-in-law, who uses a walker. Another member of our was using crutches. So it would been handier and a shorter wall if... More

Asked for our filet to be prepare medium temp, came out almost well done. When the server came back, we commented on the preparations and were not given any options. However, the truffle fries were delicious.

North Platte doesn't offer a lengthy list of good dinner restaurants. But at the top of the list is the Canteen. We live in Denver and the Canteen is as good as any non-high end steak house in Denver. The food is fresh, no pre-cooked steaks that the cook heats. The fish was not overcooked and the salad was crisp... More
