About the restaurant
If you're going to take your name from a badass like the patron saint of blacksmiths, you better be able to back it up. Baldamar marks the turning point where we usher in the new standard for style, service and steak. It means the menu’s made with old-world craft at its core and modern day meat eaters in mind — with flavors forged in fire and folded into pure primal perfection. It’s where every steak is aged 40 days and 40 nights for a taste of biblical proportion, and where crazy-fresh seafood means it was caught during your morning commute. At the bar sits every spirit imaginable, and someone who isn’t afraid to use them. This is more than a new steakhouse. It’s a line in the sand. It’s not just where you celebrate special occasions. It’s where you create them.

*A 20% Service Fee is added to all groups of 8 or more.

About the restaurant
Maynard’s in Rogers opened in 2004 with a mission to provide amazing food as well as impeccable service. We proudly aim to be the place the locals are proud to call home, but also a place for a great pit stop on your hwy 94 commute!

Maynard’s is locally owned and operated and is proud to give back to the communities it serves. We truly enjoy contributing in any way we can –from donating a percentage of sales to our local food shelf and sports teams, to grilling burgers at the Rogers high school football games.

Maple Grove
About the restaurant
Located near Arbor Lakes Mall off of 94. Our authentic BBQ starts in a live-wood smoker stoked with genuine hickory logs. Our pitmasters hand-rub the meats with a custom blend of spices and cook for hours to extract the natural flavors. We source the highest quality meats and trim them up like we’re in a competition and hand-rub them with the freshest seasonings available to create mouthwatering experiences! In addition to our BBQ and grilled meats, our menu features a selection of salads, sandwiches, side items, and made-from-scratch desserts.

Amazing meal! Everything was so delicious. We shared the lobster tail and prime rib. Both were perfect! The Spinach salad was fresh and delicious and the hash browns were perfect. Always excellent service.

First time there, it was a nice quaint atmosphere, a tad dark when trying to see the menu. Food was good, gravy on meatloaf was a little salty, really liked the Italian soup. Was there for our anniversary and waitress brought complimentary desert, was very nice of her. Overall, a good experience and will go back.
