Food is pricey, average quality at best. We travel to Minot frequently and have eaten at most restaurants there. This one is definitely a last resort.

Nice food, efficient service.
The place you want to step in after a day of work. They take care of you with good suggestions regarding the menu.
Plus: dishes are massive !!! Don't have lunch

I love the name and the decor but the food is terrible. I have eaten here twice in 6 months and no matter what we order...it is either tasteless or in the case of the chicken Alfredo...disgustingly spiced. I couldn't even eat it.

My spouse had the ribs which were in more of a sweet and sour sauce...not good. Our vegetables were cold even after I had them reheated. My steak was a bit tough and overcooked.

Montana Mikes is in town so Badlands needs to step it up or lose their business.

The food was very good! Service was prompt & the atmosphere was fun. The parking lot was full of cars, but when you get inside the place is setup so that it doesn't seem crowded at all.

Walking into this restaurant..it's beautiful. But after that it was a horrible experience. We all ordered steak, had only the option of garlic mash potatoes and that was that. Food arrived, steak was tasteless and tough. My hubbies salad had a disgusting cherry tomato on it, the 2nd side besides mashed potatoes was corn. It tasted like overcooked canned corn. Cutting the steak was definitely like sawing a log (as another reviewer said). I went a long time without a refill of my drink. The waitress was never anywhere to be seen and the restaurant was not even half full. She checked on us twice the whole meal. We just felt abandoned in our booth. Staff was MIA. The apple crisp dessert was quite good, but that's it. Nothing else was good about this place! Will never go back.
