Good food~good music~Thursday

I enjoyed coming here on Thursday night for the good food and listen to the music. It is an atmosphere that you can go with a friend or by yourself and still have a good time. They have awesome martinis here. If you are visiting Fargo, the Hodo is the place you must go, especially on Thursday!

In the past, this restaurant has delivered good food, good service, and a nice ambience. But lately, I have been disappointed each time. Worst of all, they have yet to serve good coffee. I won't go back.

This is a great place where a lot of business people meet after work for a drink - great staff, and food.

My wife and I live out of town, but have wanted to eat at the HoDo (Hotel Donaldson) for over a year. We had heard and read many good reviews. Before I tell you about our visit, let me help clear up some possible confusion. There is both a lounge and a restaurant at the Donaldson. If you read the... More

We went to a reception that didn't quite fill in us up. We stopped in here for some salad and light eats. Great food, drinks and service.

Great place to meet friends for drinks and appetizers! Try their deep fried pickled green tomatoes! Not your typical "bar" menu.

stopped in on a Thursday night when we saw they had a band. Turned out to be a pretty good blues band. Sat at the bar and had a few Sazerac cocktails. One of the better versions I've had outside of New Orleans. Nice atmosphere - somewhat of a hipster spot, but full and the bar service was prompt and... More

First time at bar, as hear alot about it. Expensive drink menu, very few staff on hand, & never got served! So after 15 minutes we went next door to the toasted frog, which the bartender immediately got us taken care of. Hobo isn't anything but a bunch of people trying to act high end in a red neck town...

I have eaten at HoDo a number of times and I love the atmosphere which is sort of industrial hip yet very comfortable. The menu is fresh, great items that you won't find at other locations. We have always had good food with good flavor. The presentation is always topnotch and the service has always been very pleasant. It is... More

had the Bison Burger with truffle fries, good taste and not too juicy. Ordered a pomegrante lemon drop cocktail for dessert--very good. Wait staff super friendly and service was a little slow, but not bad. Hipster bar atmosphere.
