The food rocks!

Small restaurant that's very busy because the food is great! Get there early if you can. Might not be the easiest place to get around if you are bringing someone with a wheelchair or stroller. Tight aisles.

Great place to come with friends and have drinks. Food is funky and eclectic. Spinach and artichoke dip is actually loaded with chunks of artichokes unlike most chains. One of the best beer selections in Bismarck!

We have been here two times in the last year. They have a good selection of craft beers. They only sell Pepsi products which is a negative. They have garlic fries which are an appetizer, they are amazing. Bread and butter is served with drinks. They have a small but nice selection of sandwiches, pasta, and personal pizzas. The wait...

Last time I visited The Walrus was 14 years ago. The pizza is still the best in Bismarck. The crust is perfectly thin and crisp. The toppings are fresh. Where else can you get a pizza with sauerkraut? Excellent service.

The ravioli with spinach and Gorgonzola was excellent. The tomato with bas soup was also very good. Service was excellent as well. The chocolate cake was not worth the time. Nice relaxed atmosphere.
