While we have been here a few times we have never had such a negative experience. We were patient when we found a fly in our water and dirty silverware but when we found a hair in our meal we were disgusted. A reputable place would have offered to make some type of gesture to remedy poor hygiene and cleanliness-... More

I raise beef and generally don't order burgers because the quality just doesn't compare to our own. Except for 209. Excellent food drinks atmosphere. Will definitely be back.

Probably one of the best burgers I've eaten anywhere, in more than 50 years of burger eating. Family had other entrees, which they also enjoyed. But I'd stay with almost everyone here who have raved about the burgers. I had the "B - squared" burger. Indescribably delicious. Good service, too!

We had lunch there today. The menu selections were numerous for lunch and diner. The food and service was great. We will put this on our "favorite places" list in Bemidji.

I love their boneless chicken wings and other appetizers. They make a nice dinner for me. Happy hour is 2 for 1 beverages and half prize appetizers.

This is a crazy good place to eat! While its a bar, its family friendly and kids can be seen there chowing down at lunch. Haven't seen them at night... The menu is extensive - far, far above regular bar fare. Service is great and fast. The flat bread pizza, salads, burgers - WOW. Had the Thai lettuce wraps for... More
