We were here primarily because my son, who is 4, loves that he gets to put the toppings on his pizza before it is cooked. I ordered the grilled chicken portobello salad which was very good. Everything was cooked perfectly including the grilled sugar snap peas. The salad dressings are homemade and the honey mustard vinaigrette is delicious (I don't... More

Grumpy service but good salads and pizza. Cool atmosphere and awesome beer and wine list. We love going everyone we are in Bismarck but wish the service was better.

I will not go here again. I have been here one and one half years ago in the summer for lunch with a friend and it was OK. This evening in January it was 10 degrees and a long wait to have dinner. The long hall everyone had to stand as cold and more so when someone else walked in... More

Food was outstanding, we had the absolute best server ever. We took our 7 and 10 year old kids and one kid remarked 'this is really' good! My husband and I had the Thai pizza and holy cow was it good!

I've gone to The Walrus several times while I've lived here and I've always gone away at least decently happy. The food is pretty tasty and the selection of beers is quite nice. They even have a nice selection of wines, though not as extensive as other places, but still, not bad! Their main dishes always have a lovely flavor... More

I have been there twice and both times the service was terrible. They weren't busy and the waitress walked by us several times while our empty glasses sat on the table. The food was served cold both times. Waitstaff didn't bother to come check on us after getting our food so we couldn't send it back. I won't ever return!

The restaurant is small, but we didn't have to wait for a table. The atmosphere was intimate, and we were able to have a conversation and actually hear each other, unlike in other restaurants. Our server was very knowledgeable and I even got to sample a specialty beer before I ordered it. The service was awesome and the food amazing.... More
