Had a fine meal here. Took it as a good sign that when they opened for dinner at 5:30, there were already 3 other tables seated.
Waitstaff was attentive, and the chef came around to see how folks were doing (I like that...kinda rare). When we left, I thanked him, and he said "Thanks for eating my food!"
Decor left a bit to be desired, but when you're looking at your lovely date & a full plate, it doesn't matter much.
We're new to the area, and had yet to branch out to try a Chinese place. This was a good pick! We started with the basics (Sesame Chicken & General Tao's Chicken) and were very satisfied. The chicken & breading were fresh and promptly made ready for pickup.
Their menu is very deep, including many things I've never seen at other Chinese restaurants. It'll be fun to branch out & test my palate.
I looked forward to coming back to this place when I knew I'd be in Bemidji. I had a classic Maid-Rite with fresh potato salad on the side. Perfect! Wait staff was attentive, fast and friendly. Can't wait to try 'em for breakfast...
This is a bright spot in a dark sea of cookie-cutter chain joints on this stretch of Outer Drive. We had a great meal as a part of a large surprise party. The staff was very attentive, and the menu was deep.
Pangea's got a very extensive menu beyond their pizza selection, but what a selection of pizzas! Interesting combinations that I've not seen anywhere, including sweet potatoes and bleu cheese. Check it out.
I've heard great word-of-mouth about these guys, and I'm glad to spread it electronically now that I've been there to get work done.
Very fair prices on the work. Friendly and down-to-earth. Give 'em a call if you want a fair shake.
Situated in a quieter part of Lake Street, Merlin's Rest feels pretty darn authentic to its roots in the British Isles & Ireland. Friendly staff, varied & comfy spots to sit, & a mighty beer list. I have yet to be there for food, but I bet it's awesome, too. Open mic on Mondays, and other opportunities to join in (or just plain listen to) the music.
And digital! But printing & developing services for film are still alive & well. And there is an extensive selection of lights and rigging for rental, too; if you like that Mole Richardson dark, dusty pink, you'll find it here.
This is THE place to go for cool baby/toddler gear! Lots of great t-shirt & onesie designs to choose from, and they're a one-of-a-kind place. They sell via catalog and at various retail locations, but you really should check out their "headquarters" shop.
A huge selection of books, puppets, DVDs and stuffed animals. And they have visits and signings from well-known authors pretty much on a monthly basis. If you can't find something here for a kid in your life, you didn't bother walking in!
