REVIEWS OF Dakota Farms - Family Restaurant IN North Dakota

James Miller

Tasteless food. Their breakfast sausage isn't even good and I've never seen anyone screw up breakfast sausage. Hash browns and eggs tasted like I was eating nothing; even after liberal doses of salt, pepper, and hot sauce, all I could taste was, well, salt, pepper, and hot sauce. Sausage gravy was from a can and biscuits doughy. My wife and mother's omelets contained canned mushrooms and literally raw, not cooked a bit, onions and green peppers and a really runny sort of cheese sauce that looked like orange water but had no trace of a cheese taste. Had lunch there twice also and I would have given those trips 2 stars for the same reasons, but after this Sunday morning breakfast, I'll never go back. Its basically hospital or nursing home food in a restaurant setting. Its popularity among the locals dumbfounds me.

Kashay Simmons

Good food, cozy place, friendly servers.

Victoria Long

Visiting family, tried breakfast eggs scrambled ,bacon crisp. Received eggs I've easy. Asked for scrambled (that is when yolk and white are blended) got back a fried egg. Bacon under cooked. Snotty waitress not even a sorry. Will not eat there again while I am in town

Susanne Demery

Good family restaurant.....home cooking, friendly staff

Michael Bradford

Best Breakfast House in Williston!

Ma Kettle

I would advise anyone that if they want to eat a breakfast or lunch that they need to come here. The place is very clean, and cosy. The staff is wonderful. The food is the best in North Dakota and I wish all the restaurants in ND would follow suit. It is family friendly and the prices are awesome for any wallet. They are not out to rip you off like others do in the oil fields..

Kristin Blanton

It was good service just not that good.

Doug Hansen

Great food and great service :)

Royce Jones


Melvin Schrock

Justin Travis

Amazing breakfast and freindly staff

Maurice Delong Jr

Great food and excellent service

Gerry Eckert

Had a small breakfast, it was not cooked as I had asked for and overpriced

Michelle Barrett

Service is a bit slow while friendly. The salad bar is lacking. I recommend the burger or steak. Everything else I've ordered there was nothing special.

Justin Savidge

Used to go there with my grandma. It was better food back in the day but now it has become very bad food.

Jennie Duran

Good food, nice waitress.

Feliks Felix

Food was just average. I'd pass on a milkshake. Vanilla shake was ice cream put in a metal cup and seemingly stirred with a spoon.

Ladiblevr 2the14lf

Very clean, food and service is always good.

Lillian Mathews

Good food a little high priced but good staff

Cody Boyd

Awsome food

Mel Thomas

Great price and good food. Only issue is hours, closing at 3 makes it hard to get there on workdays.

Maryann Williams

A great place to go and have breakfast and lunch. The food is good but in my opinion the salad bar is overpriced for it's size. It's hard to justify paying an extra $7 just to add a salad to your meal.

Rony J. Matute

Good food. Great service.. family friendly. Love it.

Gary Baker

Used to like this place better

Osha Roberts

Travis Plaster

Great breakfast

Philip Hale

Always friendly staff, however service can be slow and prices are still high. They have updated a little inside so that is nice. Overall a nice place to eat as long as its for breakfast or lunch cause they are only open tell 3pm.

Angela Jones

Really good food. The waitress wasn't all that nice. Was disappointed in the way she treated us. Would of been a 5 star if she was more hospitable

Nick Trottier Jr.

I love coming here. The staff is always friendly, professional, and offers great service. Of the couple different menu items I have tried they have all been very tasty and appropriate portions. I recommend Dakota Farms

tom hall

Friendly server, large menu. Roast beef sandwich was stacked high, but was a little bland.


It is pretty good if you like microwaved food.

Thomas Lee

Love it

Jan Schmidt

Excellent service. Good food.

William Lilley

Worst diner in Williston. Coffee cup was covered in dried on food chunks. Hashbrowns had a bad sour taste, their idea of breakfast sausage is kielbasa, I had their signature omelet but all the meat where on one end the mushrooms in the middle and the onions and green peppers on the other end because the cooks to lazy to mix the ingredients together. My wife had the Hungerman breakfast and her biscuits were doughie and cold along with the gravy that was over them. Over all the price was almost double what I pay for better food at one of the 2 compedators they have in Williston so no I won't be going back

Rachelle Hamilton

Sat there for 30 minutes with a dirty table and never got a menu or atleast a water. Everyone in front of us AND behind us that arrived got their tables cleaned, menus and a water instantly. Tried to call the server multiple times waving at her but clearly she’s Helen Keller

Service was slow, food was cold, plain, and disgusting! I ordered a ham and cheese omelet hold the hash browns and toast still had to pay full price. It’s chunks of ham with nasty velveeta sliced cheese on top. Crunched on eggshell so was done. Never asked how everything was though all food was left on our plates. Daughter asked for medium rare steak got a well done. My 15 month old grandson got a burnt hamburger, and rock hard fries. Never asked if daughter wanted something more to drink so had to eat with nothing to drink. Expensive for the quality of food if that’s what you even call what they have.

Bryan A. Haley

Nice down home family feel to this place. Comfortable setting with good food and decent prices. I just wish they were open more than just Breakfast and Lunch because it’s hard to find a good old fashioned down home dinner in this town.

Jerry Cokendolpher

Pod Pond

This place is always busy so I decided to stop in early before the rush for breakfast. Honestly one of the most disappointing meals ever. My "over easy" eggs had a hard yolk. Their "special sausage" which you can't substitute was just a store bought smoked sausage (the type you grill for dinner) and it was ice cold in the middle. The gravy over the biscuits was obviously some store bought thing they got out of a can. The food came out way to fast telling me they have everything premade and probably just reheat it rather then cooking to order. The wait staff was friendly and very quick, no complaints at all with them and the place appeared to be very clean. I really don't understand the people leaving good reviews for breakfast here. If they think this is good they need to get out more. I should have just went to mcdonald's down the street.

Robert Skinner

Good food. Average prices.


We're not from around here, but where I come from we have a friendly greeting, and and friendly face at the hostess counter. The food was good but the sour customer service was upsetting when you arrive.

Sam Busch

Good-sized portions and friendly staff

Diana G

We always have bad experiences, so thought about giving them another chance... Ordered to go, got my FULL order wrong.. called back to say something and got put on hold for 10 minutes both times I called back.. food was alright, but their services seriously needs to get looked at. Won't ever be going back there again!!

Steve gallo

Cecilia Garcia

Best breakfast in town..

Deb Heen

A small group of friends go here for breakfast after church. Place is busy and we enjoy the good service and food. Love the Early Riser specials.

Kristy Randall

First time here and it was horrible.. cooks don't care what they throw out to the people.. the only thing HOT was my coffee and my husbands hot tea.. Told our waitress and seemed she didn't care.. back to lonnies we go... my husband said If he wanted a cold breakfast he would have stayed home and had cereal!!!

Nadine Raddatz

The food and service was great! Our waitress was awesome. Really cool looking atmosphere. We got our food within 10 minutes.

Jesse Atwell

Food here is good/average, waitstaff is average and prices are average. It’s a very average establishment. I usually don’t go here by choice as there are better places in town. It is usually clean and the food is ok.

I've been to this place twice.. sub-par service and food. Think twice before going here. Try Doc Holidays Roadhouse for great burgers and Grannies Kitchen for home style meals.

Bryan Holt

Best place in town for breakfast in my opinion, Food or staff have never disappointed us.

Glen Fuller

Food is great and service is just as good that place is busy and the ladies still keep up

John Hopkins

Good portions and friendly service.

Didn't get all we ordered or paid for but still tasted fine being it was cold. Don't order to go without checking your food at the counter.

Johnathan Gerena

Love the breakfast special. $5.95 2 eggs, toast bacon or sausage

Carlene Eagleman

The food here is delicious. To be honest, the waitresses attitudes are not that friendly but I do not let that discourage me and frequent as I can.

chad york

Very nice staff ... Very good good...and reasonably priced ;) love it!! Definitely the best in town!!

Nathan Browne

07/11/17 This was close to the worst breakfast we've EVER had! NONE of the products are homemade, the gravy is from a powder and has NO flavor, the eggs were served broken and runny, the biscuits were under cooked and raw in the middle, the staff was rude and dismissive. We pushed full plates back, paid in full and left, we will never eat here again! NASTY NASTY NASTY!!!

Trish Vallely

Best caramel rolls around. Made fresh that morning. Very nice wait staff.

Maurice Davis

Hang out

Edward Rutherford

Could have been more attentive Sunday crowd though been there before will go again good food

Kaitlyn Haider

Ive been going there since the 90s. The best food and the knephla soup is amazing.

brant fish

It's good breakfast spot for sure good portions that will over fill ya belly

Greg Patton

Great food ...great service


Food is ok

Jennifer Locke

Always a good, hot meal, made to order. Good portion sizes and the staff is pretty friendly and attentive. Dining room is kept pretty clean, as much as it can be when you have farmers and work hands going in and out with muddy boots. Tables are always cleared and fresh place settings laid. Only draw back for me, especially since I'm on the short side, is the booth seats...I always end up feeling like a kid sitting in a big persons spot, or that I should grab a booster seat so I can see over the table lol.

jer Gunderson

The food is great, good atmosphere, but I've been at other places equal to here but with much better value in pricing. I've had more food for half the price elsewhere. Maybe not half the price, but it's enough to notice. I do rate the atmosphere best in town, for decoration and clean feeling. If I want to go out for a nice breakfast with someone, I'll go here. It's classier . If I'm just with the guys or by myself, I have other options I find of better value for the area. 4 stars vs 5 because of value, but if I could, it would have gotten 4.5 because it's not ridiculously priced, just there are good cheaper alternatives around here. I.E. I find 0.95 for an egg a much better value than $2 and change they charge here.

bethany smith

horrible service. our waitress was a b word, rude as H-E

Obdulia Parker

Honestly the best burrito I've had in my 5 years in the States. Everything hand made, so it takes a little longer but worth it! Highly recommend.

Tim Pipkin

Good restaurant for breakfast. Clean bathrooms. I had eggs and sausage links they were good. The coffee is better then a lot of dinners. Prices were reasonable between 6 and 10 dollars for breakfast items. The waitress was good. Seemed to be kid friendly. Overall I recommend it. Only negative was decor is dated but that is to be expected in a lot of local owned places.

D.G. Dempsey

Pricey, but good.

Jeremy Walhaug

Absolutely terrible service. Waited for a server just to clear our table for over 20 minutes and no waitress came to give us service. Everybody that sat around us after us got their tables cleared, drinks and even ordered while we were still waiting! Horrible service.

Saul Sandoval

I recommend the hungry man special.

Allison LaForest

I loooved my omelette!!! It was delicious!! The waitress were very nice too.

Good food/service. Omelets are great!

Nathan Davis

Great food and friendly service. I absolutely love their knoephla soup and would definitely recommend to anyone in town.

Kellan Teske

I realize that in the Bakken area it is hard to find good help but where is the manager stepping up when that is the case? Terrible service the last 2 times I've been there.

Barry Broyhill

My experience here was fantastic the waitress was very alert and on time and she was good at her job

Teri Hoff

Fast service & friendly staff even though they're busy, like full house busy!! I think our waitress's name was Jen?? I told her I'm going to sit in her section from now on, she was so calm but fast & checked on us a couple times to boot! I would've been a basket case with as many tables as she had. I love their coffee, the food is great & doesn't cost an arm and a leg!!

Jeff McDonald

Good food a little pricey had the club sandwich and a drink and it was almost $20

Maggie G

Truly love this place! Good food quickly and never had an issue with service. Wish it was open longer though. The decor is nice and homey.

Aaron Wigginton

If you are in Williston you need to go here fun environment great service and good food est. In 1984 and still going strong

ethan robersom

Nice waiters food was good except the mashed potatoes looked and tasted like there was cooking oil poured on them

Charlene Wurgler

It was clean and comfortable. Our waitress was very nice, helpful and attentive. Our meal (breakfast) was very delicious, done right, served hot and there was more than enough to eat. I would recommend eating at Dakota Farms Restaurant in Williston, N.D. and also in Rugby, N.D.

Laurel Gibbons

We've always gotten great service here. It's a wonderful breakfast place.

Good food. Good service if not overly crowded. Still a little pricey but so is everything.

I have always been served a good, hot meal here. I mostly go for breakfast and it is VERY crowed at that time, but I plan that into my visit and am always glad I did! Eggs always done the way they should be!

Good food but a little pricy. A chicken strip dinner was 16+ but it did come with soup and salad bar and 4 strips.

Shanna Cluchie

Food was really good. The service was good. The price was good for the amount of food we got. We did finish our meal and had to wait a while to get our bill. But otherwise definitely going back.
