we were delighted with our meal, the service and the atmosphere. Unlike other dining establishments, you could actually have a conversation without having to yell. The chef sent out a sample of an appetizer (apple with potato...delicious), we asked to share a bloody mary, but they kindly split a tall one in half so we each could have our own.... More

For fans of the HoDo, locally and elsewhere, do not fret about our new chef. If you have recently been to the HoDo recently, their menu is not the typical menu one expects. After sharing our frustration with the waitstaff, we asked if the chef could do a mystery dish and create something. We were blown away. The chef came... More

I was dying to go to Fargo, ND because my favorite movie is "Fargo". I expected the city to be a bit blah but not so. Hodo Lounge fits right in with Fargo's array of cool shops along Broadway. The lounge features comfy-hip decor. Our waiter, Ken, provided outstanding, friendly service, he could not have been nicer! We started with... More

It's the place to go for a few drinks in a comfortable atmosphere. The music is always interesting but never intrusive, the staff is well trained, and the food is good (though uneven for a while, new chef).

We had to eat in the bar as the restaurant had been rented out for the night. It actually worked out well as we were able to order off the bar menu OR the dinner menu. We ate light meals and liked our meals.

N8 the manager is the man. We were here for the weekend and came back for multiple meals. I wanted to review the restaurant but I can't find it on here. So the lounge is in the hotel on Broadway and the restaurant is open at night. Same menu though. We had almost everything the salmon, bison burger, etc. I... More

Had a group meal here. They did a good job of handling the group. Orders were taken promptly and food was well done. Everyone got what they ordered. Some unique dishes. Great atmosphere.

While visiting lovely Fargo ND we ate at HoDo Lounge/Restaurant after reading reviews on trip advisor. What a great surprise!! The restaurant works with local farmers so the produce is fresh and delicious. I had the grilled walleye and roasted vegetables which were excellent and my friend ordered the mushroom risotto, also very good. With several drinks, the price of... More
