“Unexpectedly amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

Based on Trip Advisor reviews we decided on this place for our one dinner in Bemidji. To say this place has great burgers is an understatement. The have possibly the best burger I have ever eaten. The outside is unassuming but once you walk in yo are suprised by the decor and atmosphere. This place should seriously be on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives. The burgers are amazing and the sweet potato fries with honey and cinnamon were a pleasant surprize. This place is the real deal.

“Not a wild bar.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

This bar has some of the best burgers in town. It is not an overly loud bar. They have takeout too. I love the cheesecurd burger with sweet potato fries. Good beer and mixed drinks. Sports Television in some spots. A favorite place to meet friends.

“GREAT BURGERS!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

This place has terrific burgers and a huge beer selection. There were 16 in our group and they handled us without a problem at all. Everyone in our group loved their choices. Definitely put it on your "list" while visiting Bemidji.

“Wish I lived in the area I'd eat here often.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

Drove through Bemidji and found 209bar on trip advisor, decided to give it a try. Was not disappointed. Upscale restaurant and food was excellent. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Service was great.

“Always eat here when we're in Bemidji!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

We eat here every time we visit daughters living in Bemidji! Not a huge menu, but they have awesome sandwiches and other selections. The first time we went I thought it was just another bar s we entered, but after eating there once, we go back every time we're in town--sometimes twice--it is that good! Easily one of the best places to eat in Bemidji, and is at the top of our list. Prices very reasonable for what you get and the service is very friendly!
