These quirky, fun, and downright cool places make dining interesting, and they’re right here in the Peace Garden State. Take a look for yourself:

3. Pitchfork Steak Fondue - Medora
It doesn't get much more unique and unusual than the Pitchfork Steak Fondue in Medora.

Perhaps, but absolutely amazing!
