The Frontier Grill

Saw the sign for Friday Fish Fry and had to try it. Very good. I think it was frozen, but it tasted fresh and had a nice crunch to it. Servers were very friendly and made sure we had as much as we wanted. French fries & coleslaw were also good.

First time to my knowledge my wife ate a hamburger without ketchup. One of the best hamburgers ever. And I like burgers, have had them everywhere. The staff was friendly and efficient as could be. They even welcomed our giant white dog on the patio. She enjoyed her burger also. Were going to the famed burger place downtown, and we... More

We had been told to go here for their famous "Sloppy Joe's"... We were starving, so a group of us decided to go try it out! The server/cook/owner made us feel like we were putting her out and made us feel very uncomfortable or even scared to ask for something. We ordered appetizers and also wanted to order our main...

He started calling places based on their proximity to the hotel and everyone was closed or closing and had no interest in staying open...that is until he... More

We were put off slightly by there only being one car in the car park at 7 pm, but decided to go in anyway, the young lady at the bar said that Sunday nights were usually like that and that, quite often, they had shut up shop by 7pm. We ordered beer and the one I ordered ran out while... More

The burger was the best we had in days on the road in Nebraska, Colorado, Wyoming, and South Dakota. Great onion rings and fries, delicious Sloopy Joes. Wonderful owner made us feel very welcomed!
