In addition to excellent food, these guys have an excellent beer selection. The bartenders were always friendly, fun and helpful while the manager was equally impressive. Very friendly and authentic - he... More

The food here is very good. We have eaten at 3 of the JL Beers and found them to be consistent in quality and service. The only drawback is that I am not a beer drinker and wish I could order a glass of wine.

We make sure when we visit my daughter in Moorhead we go to JL Beers. The BLT Blu burger is delicious. We also had their chips and beer cheese dip amazing. My wife also enjoys the 1919 root beer she can't get enough of it. JL Beers is the place to eat in Moorhead or Fargo.

The title says it all. This place was awesome for what it is. I'm getting ready to move here from Missouri and my girlfriend took me here for birthday lunch. Everything was perfect from the atmosphere to the food. The service was great and prompt, and the food was great. Another little fun feature that they had was beer mail.... More

Went with a friend for lunch. They have a great beer menu and even had hard rootbeer. We tried a few samples and had a great beer with a hint of apricot; great beer and very hoppy. We each had a burger with the fries. The burgers were done to perfection and the fries are fresh too. The menu offers... More

It had excellent service for a good afternoon lunch. Very little waiting for the meal. Waiter offered good suggestions to try for a burger and a beer. JL Beers has a nice environment and it does have 2 locations in Fargo that offer the same type of servie.
