Only have been here for breakfast, but everything we have tired has been great! The staff is very friendly and accommodating! I would suggest this restaurant to anyone looking for some good "down home" "homecooked" breakfast!

Very likely the busiest restaurant in town. There's people here all the time eating food that I do not enjoy. I like tractors and I also like prime rib

Waited over an hour for our food. Food was only okay. Not worth the wait. Restaurant was not very clean. Ants in the bathroom. Service was lacking. I won't go back.

Food was good, Tabitha was super friendly and we will for sure go again next year. We had sirloin steaks, fried chicken and patty melt. All was very good and price reasonable for the quality and selection.

I met my sister and brother-in-law for a quick and tasty lunch today at West 40. West 40 was a quick and easy stop for them as they traveled west to MT to a graduation. Service was fast and good, prices were quite reasonable. My brother-in-law got a humongous piece of meatloaf. Home cooked and good sized portions all around.... More

If you like a great breakfast this is the place for you. The restaurant is large enough to accommodate a large group. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.

It's really sad that we have so few places to eat in this area of Minnesota and this place is so bad. My husband and I kept giving it more chances, but after the last visit we've quit. Once your server takes your order and drops it off, you are lucky if you ever see them again. The coleslaw has... More

One of my dad's favorite spots to eat... Big menu with lots of family favorite meals like hot beef sandwich, biscuits & gravy, liver & onions, etc. Easy place to take people ages 0-100. Fast service & comfortable atmosphere.

We had tried West 40 8 years ago and were not happy. This past weekend we had friends up for a visit and decided to give the place another chance. We are glad that we did as the food has much improved. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We will come back.

Thank OliverandLisa
