Everything was just all right. We shared a house salad which was good, and had a pizza. It was vegetarian with ricotta cheese but not very tasty. We like a thinner crust, so that is a personal preference but this crust was a bit tough as well as being thicker. We had a dark oat beer, recommended by the server,... More

The food is pretty boring - I've been there a few times because the locals think it's so great. Honestly, there isn't a lot of food in Bismarck that impresses me. I love living here but the food is just... not impressive. I love to eat, but living in Bismarck, I've lost weight. If my food is going to be... More

This was a unique and very enjoyable dish. Sauce was tasty and chicken wasn't over-breaded. Waitress seemed overworked; another waitperson would have been a good idea for better service.

Sat. night before Easter was a relatively quiet night for the perpetually busy Walrus. Food was tasty as always and service was fast and friendly. A reliable restaurant for inovative new dishes and old reliables.

Had Dijon Spaetzle (a blend of Spaetzle, corned beef, onions and sauerkraut tossed in a Dijon sauce) at the Walrus. Although the corned beef could have been a bit more tender and could have substituted some of the onions for more sauerkraut the Dijon sauce and the Spaetzle was delicious. The atmosphere is friendly and comfortable, and as a bonus... More

We have eaten here several times over the years and always enjoyed it but this last trip was above and beyond. We got there pretty late and they sat us right down to eat. Our food was excellent and our service was very good. A great experience and we will be back. The beer selection is very good as well.... More

One of the best restaurants in Bismarck. A must visit if you are looking for good food & great beer. The nightly specials are delicious and the prices are reasonable. Try as you will not be disappointed.

We recently were in Bismarck for the weekend and decided to go to the Walrus after hearing so much about it. It's a bar and grill type place in a small strip-type shopping center. The inside is a bit dark and pub like, which we expected and we liked. We were seated quickly, and some fresh baked bread and herb... More
