I had a steak sandwich and fries. It was very good. The steak was tender and the fries were very good. Nice size and were crispy and hot .

Summer or winter, spring or fall, I have always had well prepared meals and good service at the Boardwalk! Summer is a bonus since you are able to sit out on the upper deck overlooking the Red River and downtown Grand Forks. Inside is the Boardwalk is cozy and always clean. If you are looking for a place to watch... More

Probably the best burgers this side of the river. Bar atmosphere - not for kids - too bad though, my kids would love that burger.

First off, our waitress (Page I think) gave the best service ive ever had in my lifetime. She was attentive without over-doing it, and she wasn't extremely formal which allowed us to have a laid back and really fun time. The service couldve made bad food taste good, but the food was AMAZING. They have such an easily understood menu... More

I took my wife here for Valentine's Day this year, you paid in advance a portion of the meal, and then paid the balance after eating. I can't remember the exact amount but it was over $130 and was not worth that at all. Yes they had a wonderful appetizer buffet, probably the best part of the meal, they had... More

Our favorite place in the area! Love to sit on the deck in warm weather and watch the river flow by. Nice selection of sandwiches and other light dinner items. Good bar.

I was expecting a sandwich, but it was quite good. We had the Frickles, (fried cucumbers which were delicious. My wife really enjoyed the Gobocado, sliced turkey on... More

We had a few drinks when my husband ordered a long island it tasted bad I even tasted it. I it was... More

We had lunch (Elk Burger & CBR Lavosh). Service was good, food quite tasty. This was the first time I had tried Lavosh and it had good taste, good texture. Hubby had the Elk Burger, which looked like 2 patties cut in half - lets just hope it was not the leftovers from another burger..... Overall, good atmosphere on the... More

The atmosphere of the restaurant is horrible. Fifteen friends planned to gather on the deck. I called ahead so they would have enough wait staff for us. I have had a couple of snippy waitresses, too by the way. We were not allowed to gather on the deck because other people would need to be turned away because we would... More
