REVIEWS OF Boots Bar & Grill IN North Dakota

Cathy Buisman

The staff was great and friendly. I was hoping the burgers were juicy but mine was dry. For how much the Nachos cost I was expecting a pretty amount of cheese and toppings. More like chips on a plate.

Allyson Berger

Better than the other reviews! Don't let the other reviews fool you. If you need somewhere reasonable and good to eat while in Medora check out this place. Ate the ribs and chicken and they were both good. Both dishes come with 2 sides each. Skip the veggies but the onion rings, sweet potato fries and salad were all good choices. Be sure to say hi to Kyle and Jake while you're there ! They'll make sure you have a good time and enjoy your meal.

Penny Cloutier

Fun place to stop in and eat. Great town to walk around, lots to do. Resonable prices on the food at the bar and service was so quick!

Curtis Weinstein

Great food every time! Sometimes a wait but not because of the service, because they are under staffed. Owners get your staffing correct and it’s 5 stars all day long! Either way great place.

Pam Loomis

Stopped layer in the evening. Nice bartender.

Shane Sepin

Went for breakfast after sleeping at the boots campground! Both a great experience.

tonya terry

Glenn Muske

Amber Powell

Awesome atmosphere!!

Jeffrey DeLoss

A friend and I only had drinks and an appetizer. Drinks and were good. Fast, friendly service.

Shelby Lynn

The food was absolutely great! But the service was very poor. But I understand because it was very busy and I think he was the only person working. Also the dollars from people around the USA is honestly amazing. I'm glad I got to experience this place.

Gayle Tangen

Great sandwiches. Like the environment, low key and relaxed. Their onion rings are very good.

April Cargo

Always a favorite of mine, for years! Good food, good service, great atmosphere !

Faith Victoria

I thought the service and food was amazing. However some of the people that come here are very rude. My opinion: The people who work here don’t deserve to be yelled at.

andrew ohlensehlen

Um they charge for condiments liquor was warm,, $15 burger&tea turned into $22 meal in the blink of any eye felt like i walked into a tourist trap when i got the bill..


The staff is very friendly and the food is quite good. The beer is excellent!

Elaine Hanson

Food was good. Reasonably priced. Could use some blinds for late afternoon.

skyler durden

Great place for a few drinks and some great food

Daniel De Long

Great place to eat in medora.

Faye Rudsenske

Burned food high prices. Food replaced with something else but no compensation. Waited a long time


I had their 1/3 pound Black n Blue burger, supposed to have Cajun seasoning but I dont think so. I ask waiter for medium... pink inside, brought out well done, had to do another which was far more juicy. Still, I'd say this place is only average. We will try a different joint tomorrow

Jackie Hafele

Family Leeb

Fun place, Only Drank didn't try the food.

Skyler Niebuhr

Friendly staff. Fast service. Local beers.

Travis Meschke

The service was terrible. My family and I sat down at the table closest to the door entrance. We waited at that table for fifteen minutes to get service. We then moved to a table close to the bar and finally received service. Upon ordering drinks and food it took 45 minutes. Steak and walleye were cold. The sauteed onions were still raw and the overall cost for the overall product was insane. Ill be spending over a hundred dollars at a better restaurant next time.

Don Markwardt

My last visit here was not as good as previous visits. The food is good and the staff is helpful. This visit seemed a little helter skelter, waiters somewhat disorganized, noise level, not music but patrons, was almost to much, couldn't wait to get out of the noise.

Connie Olson

The atmosphere was friendly and lively. They had quite a few local beers which was nice. The menu had a nice variety.

Alberta Bratland

Cranky waiter. No food after 9. On a Friday night!

Clint Lonbaken

Friendly service, menu variety and an awesome 20oz bloody Mary.

John Lysaght

My half pound burger was cooked perfectly medium all the easy through. Agnes' Reuben was excellent. Service was friendly.


The bacon cheeseburger was delicious, and the ribs were so soft (and flavorful) that they fell off of the bones. Definitely would come back

Mac Miller

Our server hailey was AMAZING!!!! Attentive and on top of things even though it was crazy busy. She’s the reason we will be back :)

Melissa Nissen

Fun and good food

Mark Viel

Waitress was friendly. All of our food was overcooked.

Curtis Edwards

Great place to hang out or take a break from walking around. Good food with craft beer on tap. Staff is super friendly and helpful. Ask them anything and they'll help you out or point you in the right direction.

Daphne Schlepp

Awesome place! Great food. Reasonable prices

Cor Du Plessis

Good atmosphere , asked for well done steak but was still rare.

Chad Stephan

Good feel, great waitress and great food. Need more?

Richard Martin

Good food great drinks, just a fun place to be.

Nicholas Schmidt

Good place for a meal in a town with few options. The highlight was the staff; our server certainly went an extra mile when she didn't need to. Nothing fussy, just good food after a day of hiking.

Clio Jepson

Great walleye!!

Lynn Lynette Bartow

Great location, great service

Cathy Call

Good food

bobby scarlatti

Wow, little hole in the wall honky tonk bar and restaurant in the Badlands of North Dakota. I had the 8 oz sirloin. A perfect cut cooked properly. The fries were skin on cooked in fresh oil. Crisp an perfect. The walleye filet was slightly over cooked but never the less fresh. Wine pours were ample and the service was excellent.

Tim Lewis

Calm, fun, comfortable and good food!

Jason Swetland

Typical small town atmosphere. Waitresses are sweet.

Nicole Forney

Stopped by this place and the food was amazing. The service was great and fast

Brian Piazza

We have stopped in for the last 3 years and have always had an excellent time

Eva Allen

Super rude waitress, ribs were bland, and very expensive for such slow, unfriendly service. We were exhausted and starving, so we would have eaten just about anything. My beer was good fortunately.

Daryl DeKaye

Good place to eat

Cindy Schafer

This is one of our favorite places to eat when visiting Medora! The BBQ blue cheese chicken wings are delicious!

Jay Halverson

Fun time, fun location, friendly staff.

Dan Steinbrecher

Nice beer from Beaver Creek Brewery. Cool old wood bar.

Miranda harris

We always look forward to going there because the egg rolls are so good. Tonight my husband ordered the jumbo shrimp for $27 with a side of fries and got 5 small shrimp, smaller than his lemon wedge. Then we thought there must be some mistake so we asked the waitress and she gave us $10 off so he got 5 small shrimp and french fries for $17 still way too much. We will definitely still make special trips to Medora for dinner but we won't go there.

Brian Pickett

Very nice one of the few places open at noon

Bridgette Yanos

Cool atmosphere, good food (had the steak sandwich plain), okay service-you seat yourself and that’s causes waiters/waitress to not always know when knew guests arrive. Also there was a language barrier. But overall nice!

Rachael Williams

Be sure to grab a seat/table about 1 hr 15 mins before you're hungry. No food should take that long. The AC unit was blowing full blast on our table. Manager came by and I explained and she cranked it up higher!

Reese Perkins

Good food, beer, service and atmosphere.


Waited 1 1/2 hours for food. 2hen food was delivered we were informed what they were out of what we ordered and brought a bunch if stuff our kids would not eat then expected us to pay for the slop. Will never, ever stop there again.

Miriam Olson

Always good food and fun atmosphere.

Brandon Arbuckle

Jake was cool, gave good beer recommendations and service. However, the price of the meals we ordered (22 and 28 bucks for fried fish and shrimp respectively) didn't really make it worth it. Good beer, rock/country bar atmosphere, but food was waaaay overpriced.

Noah Applegate

I'd say this restaurant had an overall good atmosphere. Service was very fast and the servers were friendly. I think we got our food only about 7 minutes after ordering. If the food was as good as the service and atmosphere I'd give this a five-star rating, but unfortunately the food was just all right. The nachos were decent and the stout I had was very good, but are French dip was more like a dry roast beef you'd make in the crock pot and not really a typical French style au jus. The bacon on the cheeseburger was delicious but the cheeseburger itself was also just average. Overall food rating is simply average.

Deb Wille

Had the French dip and it was amazing. Maybe the best I've ever had. Had a Sangria with it and while it didn't have much wine, it was a very tasty boozy punch of some sort.

Jane Jackson

Friendly food fair

Bonnie Goldsberry

Wonderful experience! Nothing about it was negative!

Jessica D

Traditional bar food. The staff are friendly! There's more space here vs the saloon across the street so I felt more comfortable. They stop serving food at 8pm so after that it's just drinks. The steak burger and sweet potato fries are

Cindy Haderlie

The only thing good about eating there today was our fabulous waitress. We waited for an hour for our food and ended up having to take one of the kids to the car because he was so bored and tired. And then when we finally got our food my BLT was a disaster. The tomatoes were so thick and the bacon was not cooked properly and hanging off the sandwich. The french fries were good. My granddaughter's cheese sandwich was fresh but it was cold and my daughter didn't even get to eat because she had to be with the baby in the vehicle. Won't be going there anytime soon. The foods too expensive anyway for the amount you get and how badly it was cooked.

Miriam Smith

Wonderful bar to stop by after a visit to Medora. Wonderful food and amazing drinks!

Lunker Luke

Great food friendly staff

Jacquel Blais

Had breakfast there, not good! Had to send the eggs back to the kitchen as they were raw. Toast was cold, hard and dry. Hash browns were greasy and soggy.

Laurie Pfaff

Great food, service, and atmosphere!

Shannon Baas

Great food but don't be in a hurry as very limited staff so takes a while.

Esteban Alcala

Very nice attention from server's and a nice place to spend time

Sara grace Goble

It's a fun atmosphere, good food

Rhonda CoueyBrisson

Excellent french dip sandwich, good service

Mike Wilhelmi

Great place to eat

J. Gabriel Holmes

Never had good service or food... jumbo shrimp are cocktail shrimp with 2 more. My steak came out completely uncooked. When they put it back on they over cooked it and it was not seasoned (also not bone in like the menu). The owner came over to try to blame the shrimp on their supplier not having jumbo shrimp any more... he also had a few drinks in him, then berated the waitress in front of everyone. They then tried to charge for a walleye that never came out after 30 mins as a substitution for the "jumbo shrimp". I will never go back.

Teresa Schneider

Good food friendly environment

Lynn Smith

Great place for a drink good service staff

This Guy

Good food

Hans Gillan

Excellent service

Frank Wagner

Great place to relax after a day of site seeing around TRNP

Bailey Jangula

Waited over an hour for our food. Waitress was no where to be found. I had to go find her and then she said the food would be over 30 minutes and asked us to pay for our sodas that we never even got refilled still. Absolutely rediculous. Service was horrible and no apology. If you don’t have a few hours pick somewhere else.

Steph Parra

Stopped in for a late lunch. Dogs allowed on back deck. They serve beer from a brewery in the area, Wibaux, MT. Prompt, friendly service, salad was ok, pizza was a pleasant surprise, very thin crust. Seems like the best place to watch sports in town.

Michelle Davis

Love the service and the food is wonderful ,what a great time ✌

Brian Loberg

Cold beer, great bloody Mary's, awesome staff who are friendly and always ready to serve you. Server was also went to personally make our drinks. Would recommend not missing out on the experience. Thanks Lila for your service!

Frank Martinez

Inviting and bright room with great service. My visit was before the season kicked in when I had the town to myself practically. In my opinion, the best place to have lunch or early dinner without gimmicky coupons.

Karen Porteous

I was disappointed. I didn't get what I asked for and was told it was the same thing. It wasn't even close. We wete both disappointed in our meal but the waitress was great.

Raymond Rouse

Very good food and great beer selection.

dennis smith

The ribs were like shoe leather. Sorry but they were bad

Drew Lockwood

Just went for late night desserts this year and they were huge! The service was terrific as well.

Thomas Logan

Great little bar and grill right outside the park

Tiss Johnson

Steak fingers were excellent!!

Roger Johnson

Had appetizers and a few drinks was a fun time.

Raelynn Ramsey

The food is good, we came here with all of our family for breakfast, but both mornings the staff was pretty rude. I’m not sure if they didn’t have enough people working so they were stressed, or what. Or they may not function well with a big group of people. So overall the service wasn’t that great.

Glenn Gourdon

Great food and people

Angel Kostad

Fantastic food and good atmosphere. Can get very crowed and loud though. Large bar selection. Great staff. Games for kids and adults to play while waiting. Enjoyed how you can play your music...must pay for it though. Overall had a great dining experience and would go again.

Cassandra Brekke

Servers are friendly, menu misleading blackened out prices, food was rushed but good. Manager straight up lied and was rude. Use to be one of my favorite places to eat, but getting worse over 30 years.

Alicja Granias

Would give it zero stars, if that was possible! Horrible experience! The service was terrible! We asked our waitress about gluten free options ( I have Celiac Sprue) and she said that they had none and then proceeded telling us that the sour cream had gluten! At that point I knew that she had no idea what gluten was... I decided to just have water and the rest people in our group would have lunch. The waitress rudely said “if you don’t want to eat here then just leave”. We told her that we were fine and ordered drinks and lunch ( except for myself). Within minutes a your man, also a waiter, maybe 18-20years old, asked us what was the issue and said that the waitress told him that we called her stupid! At that point we were done with that place!!!! You don’t tell people to go someplace else if you ask about their dietary options!!!! I’m surprised that places like that are still open. Shame on you!!!

Carlo Emanuele Barbi

Service was good, we had no problems. Burger tasted deliciuos, beer was also great. Recommended!

Teri Ann Frey

Decent burger. The kids meal was best part. Fast service and was told by the locals this was where you go for a good burger

Denise Beachy

They always have flies in there but the food in awesome.

Ellen Kong

Casual atmosphere. Fair service. Food didn't have too much in looks, but the taste was great.

Dawn Morrison


Lavonna Skeans

Good food and atmosphere.

Sophie Soph

We had a huge group of 19 people. Service was so friendly, and very fast. The food was delicious and they gave my boyfriend ice cream for his birthday. Thank you for a good experience!

Susan Watson

It took a few minutes for our waiter to realize we were there, but otherwise no complaints about the service. Just a word of advice - don’t waste your money on the sautéed walleye. It was a small portion that had absolutely no seasoning and the piece of lettuce under it was covered in oil. Also, the dinner roll promised on the menu never found its way to the table. Not a good value for $22, but then again, this is a tourist town.

S Holmes

Professional and friendly staff. Good food, close to Theodore Roosevelt National Park entrance. Family friendly.

Fugio Io

I had dinner here and enjoyed it so much I returned for breakfast. Dinner was a juicy bison burger and breakfast was an egg & bacon burrito that were both delicious. The staff was great. Shout out to Kyle who saved my bacon by going out of his was to mail an item I left behind by accident. I’ll definitely dine here again if I return to Medora.

Виляна Тодорова

Great place, great service and, of course, very good food... Best pizza I've ever had!

luxx orzz

The chicken was cold and the fish I ordered was awful. They microwaved the chicken when I complained

Barry Abrams

Good food, friendly and cold beer

Ann Loftis

Good food

Rudy Rojas

Good food Nice atmosphere

Jesse Kilwein

One of three best places in Medora.

Dawn McCray

Food was excellent, service was excellent and friendly, location was within walking distance of our hotel. Waiter even turned down the very loud music, though someone else turned it right back up. It's hard to enjoy the world's best bison burger when drums are pounding all around you.

David Hoffman

Good elk burger and service.

Fern McClary

Service, food to expensive

Clint Weigel

Good service. Poor food. They hit the breakfast trifecta soggy waffle, dry chicken and burned coffee.

Laura Driscoll

Food was good, service was very quick despite how busy they were, very nice atmosphere and a great place to get a drink

David Weaver

I like the place...but for breakfast it's really small portions leave hungry I had the breakfast sandwich with bacon and sausage and little to no hashbrowns

Franzi Maurer

Very rude waitress, soggy french fries, wilted lettuce, big blobs of sour cream in spinach dip. Would not recommend. Waste of money. Spent $80 on food that was almost inedible. Complained and got an $8 discount. Not worth it and very unhappy

Roger Flohr

Good food great atmosphere nice staff

Randi Wilson

Small burger for paying $15 for it....

Josh Martin

The Swiss and Mushroom burger was alright. Cooked well, but no big deal. My wife had a supreme pizza that was delicious and my son had the jumbo wings that he devoured. Great atmosphere and our server was also great.

Marge Muth

Great breakfast yesterday

Alex Kinney

Great food slow service

Tim Whatley

Smiles on the faces of children. What more could a person ask for lol. Well actually I would have liked quicker service so it seemed like they were understaffed but the service was so so so kind. The vibes in this place were very good

Trish Waldock

Best steak tips in the state!

Darren Van Soye

Live music when we were here. Food excellent. Service very good. This is the best place to go in the area.

Ashley Cooke

Food was ok, service has not been the greatest either time I've been there unfortunately

Paul Wasserman

Great food - love the tempura batter walleye. Snappy service even when it's busy. Fun lively place.

Shanae Al-Kordi

Friendly staff, cute bartenders and amazing pizza! Can't wait to go back to Medora.

Eric Grewe

Great place for a cocktail after golfing the Bully Pulpit which is fantastic golf outing!!

Jeffrey Barker

The waitress named Huma was rude and obnoxious. I was unsure if it was because she was ignorant or just lazy. The burger was dry and trastless and when you added the extra cost for onions, lettuce, tomato it was insulting. If you are thinking about eating here save your money, the service and food is better anywhere else. Shameful that such a beautiful place has such a tasteless and unprofessional establishment.

Teresa Hadenfeldt

Great food, wide variety, cold beer and large portions

Diana Sollom

Great service and amazing staff. We've been coming to Boots for years, and always enjoy our rooftop drinks .
