Appitzer of boneless chicken wings with the butter bourbon sauce was awesome. The BBQ bacon burger was a must also. The service is fantastic!

I traveled to Bemidji for work so wasn't familiar with local restaurants. Bar 209 was recommended to us by staff at the hotel we stayed at. The atmosphere was cozy, the service was quick and attentive. My friend and I both agreed that our food was excellent. The portions were VERY generous and all reasonably priced. I would definitely go... More

A great find. Walleye tacos and cheese curds are very good. Will be back! Staff was attentive and friendly. I was nervous to bring kids here because it was a bar. Not the case, felt like an upscale bar.

This place us owned by the same folks who own the Turtle River Chophouse, so the same kind of great homecooked adventurous cuisine can be expected, though with 209's own unique specials and favorites on the menu. Food and service is great, but the place is often packed so you may not find a table at peak mealtimes

We stopped here on a Friday evening a little after 10PM still needing dinner. We had a couple appetizers and split a burger. The service was great! The food was very good....standard American fare with some good spice. We ordered the BSquared burger which was really very good. Cooked perfectly.

Food was outstanding. Ugh .. By bacon blue burger was DELICIOUS. I have food allergies and our server went out of her way to check on a food. I had a drink that had apples and lime in it, it was incredible. It got very busy in there mid way through our visit. Our poor server was pushed way to... More

Apparently if you are not blonde and 90 pound female you are not welcome.... this place is dirty, food is disgusting, and service is by far the worst I have ever received in bemidji, and that alone is saying a lot.
