This was a fun place to eat. All the decor was as if it was from the 50's. My husband and I went for lunch. We ordered a basic hamburger meal with fries . Everything was great. The 2 women were very nice and struck up great conversation with us. We had to finish with a great milkshake to go.... More

First experience was great! Restaurant was clean as a new penny. Could see it had been open awhile though because some pitchers were needing replaced due to use and abuse of the dishwashers. The cuisine had the random twist of some authentic German dishes I'd not seen before and had trouble pronouncing. Something like chrunchen and a custard like pie... More

Honestly how can you call this a German restaurant when they have only 2 or 3 German menu items on their menu minus the knoephla soup. The server was not even apologetic when they didn't have a GERMAN dish that used to be a staple here. And the server has no knowledge of the menu what so ever

We had lunch at Krolls 2 days in a row. Soup and Sandwich was awesome and not very expensive. We split a milkshake which was fantastic and more than enough for 2. I would highly recommend this great joint. It is done up like a 50's diner. It also serves a great selection of german food like knefla soup and... More

Okay, so most servers might be very pleasant but one or two might be a little abrupt, and the decor might be a little brassy, but this isn't a fine dining place. It's a diner, with all that the name implies. The food is tasty, honest, and straightforward; the place is clean, the prices reasonable. But the malts and shakes... More

Great service. Good food. Didn't have any issues. In fact the waitress went out of her way over and over to make sure.

Overpriced for what you get except for the knoephla soup, do yourself a favor and go across the street to the truck stop, and just because you serve a few german dishes it does not make you a german restaurant.

Being a regular at this diner and a big supporter and participant of the Bismarck Krolls Diner Marathon, it is upsetting when it is impossible to get a refill on your drinks on a day when there are 4 patrons in the dining room and 8 staff. On the bright side the food was outstanding as always.
