This is such a fun little pub in downtown Bismarck. In my opinion they have the best burgers in North Dakota. Lots of local brews on tap, love sending postcards to family and friends.

Burger and a craft beer and great service. Limited seating but if you want to get outside and enjoy the North Dakota summer there is a patio. Must be 21

I don’t always eat burgers, but when I do, it’s at JL Beers. Amazing burgers, fresh cut fries and chips, and awesome selection of beers. Bartender is great to help find exactly what you are looking for.

They have wonderful burgers including chicken now and they have outstanding variations of fries. My favorite burger is the Nutty that has homemade peanut butter along with a spicy jalapeño jelly. It sounds funny, but it is delicious. Seating is limited in the cooler months,...More

There’s a radisson close enough to walk to JL Beers, and a couple of othe motor lodges, but I wouldn’t stay at those. The Radisson is the nicest hotel in the downtown area.
