Ate at Harry’s. Great atmosphere. Great cocktails. Bland food. Very very bland. For the price the food should be on point with everything else. 

talked to a guy that manages a few bars downtown and he eat at harry's and said the same thing.....not impressed

Sky's is still in business so there's precedent.  Not sure who's cooking at Harry's but they haven't made a big deal about it.    That might say something.

All of this for an undercooked burger...

nope - do your research as the anti-vaxxers would say;)   I'm an anti-AHOLE biz-supporter.  There is a HUGE history there that doesn't jibe with the "boo-hoo little small business owner" angle.   These people knew what they where doing and it was totally for themselves.  That place should have been run out of town years ago - for the good of GF/EGF!   There are TONS of more deserving restaurants than this trainwreck.  When's the last time you heard anyone say "WOW!  You have to eat the Boardwalk...(crickets)"

You seem pretty unhinged.

Get your collective a$$es to EGF and eat at Boardwalk between now and January 17.  A lot.

And God bless them for having the stones to stand up to garbage tyranny out of St. Paul.

Boy would another $500k loan that gets "forgotten" about for the next 20 years and only needs to be partially repaid come in handy about now.

SS.com:  We're going to publish a dining guide for Grand Forks!

Interested reader:  Oh, that's nice.  Will you be relying on Michelin ratings?

SS.com:  No, Dun & Bradstreet.

Interested reader:  But what about the food?

SS.com:  Past finances, tax liabilities, and creditworthiness are more important.

Interested reader:  But what about service, convenience, or price?

SS.com:  It's a small town. 

Interested reader:  Some people are relatively new here, and don't get into local gossip.

SS.com:  Everybody needs to know everything about the owners...digging up old dirt is all that matters.

Interested reader:  Grand Forks really doesn't have that many dining options, though.

SS.com:  We can think of one too many.

Interested reader:  That seems kind of petty.

And if I'm not mistaken, that's how Zombieland started

Would a previously posted political slanted rant suffice for a reason to eat somewhere, anywhere, EGF perhaps?

Starting in January you can eat at Aldi - GF's newest grocery store!  Savings German-style but bring a quarter to rent the shopping cart.  

 

PS - you get the quarter back when you return it to the store.  Plus they're German!  Good add since Hornbacher's ditched GF like a bad date.  Funny thing is they're still the "Official Grocer of UND Athletics".   Hugo's (a GREAT GF supporter) got the short end of the LearSports deal - WOOF!:-( 

Frankly embarrassing - Hugo's deserved far better treatment from UND athletics

The Shire restaurant in River Cinema movie theater is open. Lots fun stuff on walls and plenty tvs. More of a bar, but kids are allowed. Food is very good. Burgers and grilled cheese options. Gravy comes with waffle fries.

We usually hit Bonzers but decided to switch it up on Saturday and hit Tavern United. It didn't take long to remember why we hadn't been there in awhile.

Guessing it took a lot longer to get your drink, food, and bill though.
