March 2012. Did a road trip from Saskatchewan to Minot, Washburn, Glendive, Jordan, Malta and back home. Stopped here for breakfast. Food and service was good for being Easter.This site will not let me tell you I travelled before April 2016

Breakfast was good. Probably local sausage patties were delish. Dinner was poor. Chicken fried steak will not be my choice ever again.

The restaurant was really busy on a Friday night but our waitress was good about checking in with us whenever she went flying by. We really enjoyed watching the casual and friendly interactions between the waitstaff, tables of local families, and a big table of out-of-state pheasant hunters. Food prices are a little high but quality was good.

Our group ate breakfast here while staying at the Great Northern Hotel. The food was very good, and the portions were large. I would recommend the bacon for sure. The staff was very friendly.

I had the chicken fried steak which was smothered in gravy and if not, it would have been pretty bland. My husband had the Walleye which was obviously frozen previously. Taste was good but texture was slimy and too soft. Prices are relatively high for what you get. The server was wonderful and the interior very pretty and VERY clean.

Loved the fancy tablecloths and napkins! We were there for the drag races, and it was a very busy night, and even with only 3 waitresses working they were attentive and friendly! My chicken fried steak was freshly made (no frozen patty!) And yummy and big enough my daughter and I split it. Son loved the mini corndogs, Husband's hamburger... More

We ate in the steakhouse the evening we arrived, the steak and lobster was outstanding. I've never seen a tail that big. Steaks were grilled perfectly. Next morning we walked back over and had a delicious breakfast at their Cafe. If you stay in Malta or just passing through its worth a stop.

Enjoyed friendly locals, free drink coupons from motel were good for premium liquor, walleye was grilled as requested--no breading, oriental salad was good and the light meal I desired. Small town America at its best.

Choices were varied and tempting. Hash brown potatoes were fresh and prepared with care; eggs done to perfection. My husband had steak and hash browns; steak was fresh and locally grown. Prices midrange.
