I am so sorry to write this review., but hope it will bring improvement .This restaurant appears to be in transition. Service was awful and we were at the bar. We had to ask for service for second drinks , water , soup reheated. as...did persons next to us.-Conflict between staff was apparent. Food - really soup served cold and definitely not made in house. Woman wandering behind bar which feels sticky dirty talks about great chef . I like Indian food , but do not eat meat or fried foods, so my choices were limited . I also did not want a large $$$ meal for late night dining.Salad with chicken for $21 was average with room temperature lettuce. Only the blonde lady seemed to be capable.-There were only 4 people in the restaurant until young group of guys were greeted as return customers/drinkers. -After numerous cross country trips, cruises , owning restaurants - this place needs attention to service , menu, cleaning and appearance . It has a captive audience adjoining the Ramada Inn.More

This is hands down the best restaurant in North Platte. I stop here often on my drive from WI to CO. It’s a great place to unwind and relax and enjoy the atmosphere and great food! The staff is great and welcoming. The owner, Dino,...is there every time I stop. He makes his rounds to the table and checks on the patrons and asks about your experience and genuinely cares. Incredible service, which is hard to find, and excellent food. I had the chicken sandwich this last time I stopped and it was delicious - and the fries are to die for! I can’t wait to return and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Canteen Bar & Grill to anyone looking for somewhere to eat in North Platte. Thank you Dino for another outstanding dinner and just overall great atmosphere!More

When traveling from Minnesota to Utah for Christmas, we stayed at the Ramada, and this place was right next door. When we arrived, there were no other customers in the restaurant, even though it was prime dinner time. We ordered mozzarella sticks, chicken wings, and...a Caesar salad. The food was served after a short wait. The salad was fresh and tasty. The mozz sticks and chicken wings were good, standard bar fare.More

Family ordered a mix of steaks, salmon, and pasta. All items were cooked correctly and tasted fairly decent. This is not a 5 diamond restaurant, but for what it is the food was good. This is the only reason for 2 stars instead of 1....However, what made our experience very poor was the service. Our waitress was very unfriendly and mostly acted as if we were a bother. I do understand having a bad day, but when your in service you really have to make an effort to leave that at the door and put even a fake smile on and attempt to be friendly and helpful. Our party was large (11) but none of us complained, nor sent any of our food items back, or asked for extras. For there being only about 3 other parties in the place, service was also slow exotically on drinks. We will not return to this restaurant.More

New ownership/management. Pork Chop with butternut squash was excellent! Will definitely come again and try other menu items.

No marinara for mozzarella sticks! Menu said "French Fries" but got oven roasted rosemary potatoes with sandwiches. Burger was rare and scary. No one else in restaurant and I know why.

I have been to this restaurant 3 times and will return often. This is the only Indian cuisine for quite a distance and it is excellent. If you do not like Indian food there are many choices for American food. The owner is extremely accommodating...and will have his chef fix items not on the menu if possible. Great atmosphere. Great food. North Platte is fortunate to have this restaurantMore

Poor to no service when we entered facility. It was like we were intruding on their personal time. Left to go elsewhere.

First of all the website needs to be updated as we expected a steak house & had already decided what we wanted. When we arrived we discovered a new owner & Indian food. The food was delicious despite our surprise. Our only complaint was they...were short staffed & we waited 1 1/2 hrs for our food. They comp us a drink & naan which was nice. They did warn us there would be a wait but we didn’t expect that long. In their defense all restaurants are having issues hiring. My suggestion would be to give people an estimate of the length of the wait.More

After reading the previous reviews, which, admittedly were from 2020, we were looking forward to a great meal. After a long day of travel we walked over only to find it completely silent inside. There were a few people and workers but no music, no...talking, nothing. We asked to be seated in the bar, which wasn't an issue since tons of tables were available. We received our menus and asked about a beer, which the server said she had no idea about, and did not offer to ask the bartender. After sitting with a very limited menu for a few minutes, watching other come silently in and no server coming to ask if we wanted a drink, we decided to leave. I am not sure how this got any 4 star reviews, unless it is has changed ownership.More

Just so you know I have a BS in meat science, so I know my meat. I - I’m in Nebraska and they are known for their BEEF, so I ordered the boneless ribeye, rare. The steak was cooked to perfection. What made it a...hit was the “pepper “ crust that added zing to a well marbled, juicy steak. Hint, if you want a juicy steak, don’t order anything cooked above medium rare. 2-I see complaints about slow service. Bunk. I was alone and a tip is to sit at bar to get great service. My service was 5 star bc the bartenders loved their work. Griffin was training someone and he took pride in his work and passed it on to his student. 3-The only ding was no bar staff was wearing a mask. I’m in a high risk group and I don’t care what the state rules are, I would like to see food service staff wear masks. Drop by and have an an example of Americana.More

We went to the Canteen Bar & Lounge on the advice of our hotel. We got there and waited for over 15 minutes but no one acknowledged us. There were 3 servers in the bar area with 1 customer and it looked like maybe 3...couples in the main dining area with 1 server. No one even attempted to seat us or even make any indication they saw us. We felt invisible. No one else was waiting to be seated and they certainly didn't look busy. We walked out.More
