They just opened their rooftop on 5/18 brrrr snow day. The HoDo is kitschy and stark at the same time. The food was well prepared and tasty but was pricey for what you got.

The HoDo in downtown Fargo is always a fun place to gather but their food is top notch. We've tried many different items off the menu and I would recommend to anyone the General's Chicken loaded with flavor and mild spice on the best chicken available. Their tap beer selection is real nice and offers a great variety. If you... More

I go to the lounge for lunch whenever I'm downtown for a business lunch. The General's Chicken dish is so good!

We went to the lounge (as opposed to the higher-priced restaurant). Although it was a very busy evening (Saturday before St. Patrick's day), our server attended us quickly and with grace. The menu was great for a lounge, and the prices were reasonable. We had the General's Chicken (good portion size - enough for 2 meals, tasted great, tangy/spicy without... More

My wife and I posted up at the bar for a drink and some appetizers. The bartenders are very talented and accommodating. Sitting at the bar rail turn out to be a free show watching them make drinks and work so flawlessly

This place is absolutely amazing. You get the feel of a high class place without having to pay 200 dollars per person per meal. I had the Norwegian Salmon and a mixed drink that had cucumbers in it. It was seriously so amazing that my girlfriend and I went back the next night and had it again! Would highly recommend... More

Looking for downtown gathering place, live music, all fresh delicious food and great atmosphere? This is it. This is a romance, special occasion dinner place. But the lounge is anytime. Great for get together with friends while checking out downtown.

Nice experience for first time to see it for a meal to get prepared, but little expensive because the plates are very small and you have to go and prepare additional amount every time. Bit by bit. Though, I enjoyed it and get some pictures for memory.

We started with drinks in the lounge, a special concoction from the bartender - excellent! Moved to the dining room for dinner. They are a Farm to Table restaurant listing the local sources for the menu items they are able to locally source. My concern about this movement in the winter in the Midwest is that they are sacrificing quality... More

Loved this place. Great drinks, great food. Love being there with friends and family. Often great live music and unique artists. Come with time to spare: the ambiance is something you don't want to rush (service is also great). :)
