Service was good and the burgers were tasty. This was our second stop here so it must be OK although there isn't a lot of choices in Murdo in the off-season.

The restaurant had some interesting western artifacts, but tavern food. The burger was decent; the fish and chips...not so much. Salad from a bag with prepackaged serving sized dressing. Service was surprisingly efficient considering only one waitress and many diners.

We rolled into Murdo late and got the the restaurant around 9:45pom and kitchen closed at 10pm. The staff were very friendly and allowed us to take our time while ordering. We chose the fish fry and salad bar. Both were delicious! Other reviewers stated that the place was dated and dark. My partner and I liked the atmosphere and... More

It's a little dark and old timey, with a flair of cowboy bar and eatery thrown in. Food was OK, salad bowl miniscule, soup really good, prices fairly reasonable, choices adequate. Murdo is not a metropolis; options are limited....

Our waitress was very friendly and the service was good, but the food and decor were another story. I do agree with a previous reviewer that said the atmosphere leaves a bit to be desired. So did the food and wine. I started with a cup of soup suggested by the waitress and the soup was very good, but the... More

The atmosphere leaves something to be desired, kind of dark with a bar at the other end of the dining room. The service was good and prompt. I ordered a steak, what else when you are in cattle country. It was tender with good favor. My wife, a vegetarian, had a tough time with the menu. She finally decided on... More

This is your regular dinner/bar that you will find in just about any town as for appearance. Simple interior with friendly attentive staff. A fresh salad bar with all the fixings and home made soup that comes with meal as well as desert. Our meal was served very quickly and the food was pretty good. A tad on the pricey... More
