Excellent restaurant with good ambiance and excellent food. We had sandwiches and brisket as well as beer all done in house and very well. Service was fast.

If Laughing Sun were only a brewery, it would be worth visiting. They make a wide variety of really good beers (I was partial to the Magic Fish), so you can pretty much expect to find something that you’ll like. However, Laughing Sun is more than a brewery. It’s also a barbecue restaurant; we particularly enjoyed the brisket and the burnt ends. On top of that, there’s also live music on a regular basis and you can also partake in axe throwing provided that you reserve a lane on the website. Plus, you can find Laughing Sun’s beer throughout the area. I highly recommend that you visit Laughing Sun - plan to stay for a few hours!

And two more: beer cheese. I used to think that Harpoon Brewery in Boston had the best soft pretzels, but I was wrong. Laughing Sun’s are the very best! And the cornbread and the rest of the food was great too, as was the beer of course. Highly recommend!

Where else in the country can you order from a pretty conventional BBQ menu in a joint that features craft beers, live entertainment, and ax throwing contests? Laughing Sun is different ... and the 'cue is darned good. For $51.77, we ordered a craft beer (the Belgian Sinister), a soft drink, a pound of wings with all the trimmings, a half pound of burnt ends, and brisket with mac 'n cheese and house made cornbread. The meats were all on point. Whether wet or dry, the burnt ends (KC style) were moist and full of well seasoned flavor. The fatty end of the brisket was lightly seasoned, with decent bark and good smoke. It was still moist, although we were eating more than 4 hours after the restaurant opened. The wings were also nicely smoked and juicy, and this without a trip through an air or deep fryer. Excellent cornbread and tasty mac 'n cheese rounded out the meal, although the mac would have been better if they had thinned the cheese sauce to allow it to penetrate the pasta more effectively.
In sum, of the 7 'cue joints in North Dakota with a conventional BBQ menu that we have visited, Laughing Sun was the best.

Great vibe, friendly wait staff, music. We tried the Mac bowls and BBQ sandwich. It was great to sample several home brewed N Dakota made beers. Large truck doors opened up the indoor space to create a casual al fresco experience. There is also patio space.

Enjoyed a tasty beer at Laughing Sun! Industrial vibes, lots of seating both indoors and outside. It was a busy night but they had set up a beer tent outside and the lines moved quickly. Wide variety of types of beers and cider offered!

I'm so happy we found this place! The beer selection was great. I had the newly released Dropping Cones and loved it. Their BBQ is awesome, the brisket was so tender and flavorful and the pork was delicious as well. If you're in tbe area I would suggest checking them out.

We went to the brewery to try their beers and stayed for dinner. We really enjoyed ourselves. The beer and the food (BBQ) were very good. The bar tender went out of his way to explain their beer options to us. Fun and relaxed atmosphere. Their pricing was very reasonable. This was a very enjoyable experience for us.

Had an awesome experience on a slow covid Friday night. No live music but staff switched tv to a football game for us. Had a quick hearty meal after 12 hours in the car, great beers and conversation with staff. They even served the cookies right out of the oven! Will be back for sure.
