Great staple of a restaurant. It didn't disappoint! The food was great as was the service. I definitely would recommend it as a good spot to grab a drink and food with an ambiance that allows you to actually still talk to the person at the table. Very nice.
Birthday/New Years Eve
Ordered an app to be delivered before main meal came out and the main meal followed the app by 2 minutes.
You couldn’t enjoy the app since your meal was there.
Green Beens where over cooked and mashed potatoes where cold.
We had a large group of people coming in at different times and Andrew was so on top of it! He did such a great job and the food was fantastic!
Great Northern good for my party of 7. Dinner was at 4:30 so not a true evening dining experience. Had the place to ourselves. But everything was good.
Food quality was fresh, but not the best of flavors.
Probably one of the worst meals I’ve ever had. We waited for over an hour for our food and when it came it was cold, bland and not worth sending back. The server seemed way too busy, and when we expressed our displeasure all she said was “would you like me to take it back?”. That was my first and last experience at Great Northern. There are just too many other, better options around.
Restaurant was very cold but it was the end of the night so there wasn't a lot of body heat.
I am not picky but it was the worst meal and service I have ever had. All 6 of us ordered burgers. Five came and remaining meal 20 minutes later. Took 90 minutes. All of the burgers were charred. The service was terrible. Server got all the orders wrong. WILL NEVER GO THERE AGAIN. I made the reservations and I was embarrassed that I took friends there.
Great service. Great food. Good place to catch up with old friends. I have been there a few times and they have always been great.
This is a great restaurant. Service is first class; Food is great; Price is reasonable; Plenty of Parking.
Great for business nights, date nights or just for a family dining out evening.
Three of us went on a Sunday night.
Only one other table of 8 and 4 at bar. 2 waiters
I requested a Cosmo on the sweet side
A bitter lime flavored drink came out in a tiny glass. Explained to the waiter. He had them add syrup. Tasted like lime cool aid
Requested flank steak medium to medium well . Pink ok but NO red. It came out raw
Sent back. Half was still raw. Left those pieces and showed waiter who said nothing
And did not adjust the bill.
Our other guest had COLD meat loaf.
Had to send back to be re heated
We were excited to try this place after many years away. Sooo disappointed.
Seemed to be no one there on quality control. Could have been a lovely evening with friends
It was drafty and cold. Excellent server and good and lots of food.
Awesome service and food in a large group of 15. Everything was excellent!
The food was mediocre and the roast chicken had a rubbery skin. Not appetizing. The same chicken was in the pot pie and Cobb salad and just wasn’t very good.
A nice choice for a cozy, delicious dinner. Really enjoyed the chicken pot pie!
One of the seven in our party had a bad meal. The others were happy with their food. The unfortunate meal—an Eggs Benedict with crab cakes—was served with scrambled eggs, not poached. The waiter took the dish so it could be remade. By the time the new dish arrived, everyone else had finished eating. The eggs were undercooked—runny whites—and the Hollandaise was barely visible. The waiter told me I should have ordered something else that I would have liked better. It was insulting. A manager came to the table to ask why the dish was sent back. She was apologetic and kind; she also took that meal off the check. It’s not the first time I’ve had a less-than-desirable experience at Great Northern. Unlikely I’ll take friends there again.
Great Northern used to be a great place to go enjoy a decent meal in a not so noisy environment.
Unfortunately, the food isn't that good anymore. It lacked flavor and appeal.
Great lunch menu selections. Large wine offerings. Super service, upbeat and attentive!
We had a reservation for 5 for inch - but they were not ready for us. Short wait though. Food was very good - all enjoyed their meals (though the pot pie was a little dry). Service was not fast - we waited more than I expected. Overall a good place and I will go back for a business lunch, but would expect a little better service.
One of us had special requests on her order. None of them came out right. The waiter did correct the mistakes. The noise level was so high that we felt like we were yelling at each other to be heard. Food was good.
Very nice atmosphere, waitstaff, and meal.
Good dinner, not crowded during the week. Food and service was good.
They are always able to accommodate a bigger group. Slower service is the usual. Okay food. Decent drinks. It’s bordering on becoming stale for the area. I hope they can push past.
We held a birthday dinner gathering five old college buddies on a Sunday evening. We enjoyed a variety of drinks, main entrees and salads - everyone was very pleased with their selection. Nicki's service was first class - attentive, helpful and personal! I've been there before and was gratified that my friends agreed that this is a place we will all return to in the future.
Great Northern is perfect for lunch. For dinner, not so much. My food at dinner was over-cooked and bland. However, just a few days prior, I had lunch at Great Northern, and it was delicious and a good value.
Service was great. Food was poor. Fish overcooked. Salad less than exciting.
My guest liked her salad but my French dip was a lot of bread, little meat and it was chewy.
This restaurant never disappoints. Excellent food, service and atmosphere. From the time you enter the restaurant and are greeted by the host/hostess and seated; to the wait staff and the chefs, you experience a first class atmosphere. The food is always delicious and plentiful. And plenty of free parking!
The only downside was the noise level. It was difficult to hear each other...
Slow service on a non busy night. 2 hours to get two drinks and a hamburger for three people. Complained to the manager about poor service and we’d like to order another drink. He was defensive, blamed his servers and said they were not busy. The waiter apologized for The wait time for food and drink. No comp of any kind for the slow service and managers attitude. How can they still be in business?
Walleye and chips are outstanding. Our server was friendly, helpful and attentive.
Patio and brunch were lovely! Mamosas were lacking champagne but otherwise, very nice.
The food was ok, but the poor and slow service took away from the overall experience.
Great patio for an evening of drinks, delicious food and we will definitely be back!
We dined outside on Labor Day and it was lovely under the large trees. My favorite is always the bacon blue cheese burger and my husband loves the rotisserie chicken. We enjoyed the cheese curds for our happy hour appetizer. Our server Nikki was so pleasant and attentive without being over bearing. Our food was delivered promptly as were our drinks. Overall a lovely evening!
Great burger, nice atmosphere on porch.
Soup was room temperature. Chicken was bland. Asparagus was not cooked (two attempts). Salmon was bland. Offered a free dessert. We will not be returning.
Nice evening out with dinner on the patio. Service was a little slow. I ordered a Merlot that was $8. It was good. I had one glass. When the bill came I had been charged for the higher priced Merlot. Maybe they substituted, & just didn’t tell me, or the waitress got it mixed up. I didn’t say anything. It was only $4.
