The pizza was delicious as was the soup -- a bit pricey ($5 for a cup of soup) but homemade and delicious. I was a bit disappointed at the craft beers offered. Location was easy to find, but certainly an unremarkable and drab exterior. Inside...More

We came to Walrus Restaurant because of the great reviews and vegetarians options! It was a good choice. We enjoyed the Green Thumb Sandwich and the selection of beers. The staff were nice and if we find ourselves back in Bismark, we'll visit again

Highly unlikely. Their physical setup just isn't geared for much take out. It's not hard to pick up and take it back.
