Where to eat in Grand Forks.

Recommended Posts

I hear Wild Hog closed for good. Also heard Tellman will be re-opening a bar restaurant in that spot. Anyone know anything?

That's sad but not overly surprising.  Every time I'd go back their menu got smaller and smaller, to the point where it was only Red Pepper food but served as combos instead of individually.  I always thought the bbq was pretty good...not sure why it struggled.

this was trying to be an upscale sports bar.

The menu at Boss’ suffers a little bit from being too much. Literally, as the print gets kind of small. But the list of pizza selections alone should draw and hold your attention. Lots of specialty concoctions.

Chicken was good. Moist and not too greasy. We liked the spicy option...you can mix and match so probably best to experiment and try both.

Prices were fair, if not a tad high. I suspect coupons or loyalty programs would help. (I just remembered that I had a free pizza punch card at 1000 Degrees that never got redeemed.)

Biggest problem by far is the seating arrangement. Way too few tables. They’ll need to fix this ASAP if they want to survive. Other service bugs are getting worked out. Combining table service with self-service drinks was a plus, because the staff was spread pretty thin.

All in all, not a life-altering experience but we’ll go back.

totally agree....seems like the kitchen/prep is 90 percent of the floor space...seating for maybe 15??

The problem was it was an awful sports bar with small TVs and an awful menu.  Went there on a recent Monday night to watch football and have a beer and they had swimming on most TVs and staff didn’t know how to change the channels. Tellmans will do better, heard they are upgrading the TVs !

Rule #1 for a sports bar and a home for that matter. No one has ever bought a TV, set it up or hung it on the wall and then said "We should have went smaller"

Some GI docs are now just sending patients to BWW the night before their colonoscopy for their prep. Go and dine at your own peril!

Shangri-La
Grizzley's
New Chinese joint on Columbia that opened after Shangri-La

Before it split into two businesses, I'll agree, the service wasn't very good.  But after the Pepper moved in, I seem to remember having pretty decent service and the food on their menu was still good, just limited.  And when referring to an "upscale sports bar" if you mean a bar that offers more than Bud Light, Coors Light, and PBR, then you're right.  Their beer selection was actually prettty good.  When referring to BWW, I wouldn't exactly use the words "cheap beer" though.  You'll pay damn near $8 a beer for anything other than the aforementioned.

BWW charged my wife $0.25 for a pickle in her $7.00 beer. Never been back.

Shangri-La was my favorite restaurant in town! The place after it (Phoenix something?) was still good but it just wasn't the same.

I really liked Players Sports Bar and Grill in the day.  Good specials.

have seen some reno going on on that little building by judy's...sounds like a microbrew is going in there??? would that building be the brew house and the beer is served at Judy's (or a differnen name) or would that small building be the "drinking room" too...if so how many people could actually fit in that crack shack?
