This was a great restaurant for lunch or dinner. It was suggested by a capitol employee. The people were friendly and the service was very nice. Many choices for different tastes.

I joined several co-workers at The Walrus for lunch. We all ordered different items and each were very satisfied. I had the Santa Fe Chicken Sandwich with garlic fries. They roasted the garlic and added it to lightly salted fries. They were to die for.

Stopped in here to try some local brews and they had a nice selection. Ordered the soup, because it caught my eye. Really delicious, which I wasn't expecting. The server was nice and overall it was a great find in Bismark.

The Walrus appears to be a "hole in the wall" type place when you first walk in, but the menu is unique and the food is excellent. One downside is that it is very crowded - too many tables for the floor space, making it...More

Highly unlikely. Their physical setup just isn't geared for much take out. It's not hard to pick up and take it back.
