This Unique Restaurant In North Dakota Will Give You An Unforgettable Dining Experience
If you’re looking for a truly unique experience in dining along with great food and the opportunity to make some great memories in North Dakota, this one definitely tops the list. Ready to jump back to the old west? Take a look at this place…
In the tiny town of McLeod, with a population of only 27, is a place that attracts hundreds: the Silver Prairie Saloon.
It's a small town and a small place, but it is not to be underestimated. From the outside it looks like a nice themed bar and grill type joint, sporting some hitching posts for effect....
...that people do actually use. Once you've hitched your pony up outside, just wait until you see the inside.
No detail is spared in the whole look and feel of this place.
I took a small personal tour of the place before hours and I was in awe. Everything from the bar to the tables, the wall decor, even the bathrooms - it feels like a modern day western saloon with a fun, awesome atmosphere. You could feel like a real cowboy or cowgirl here, if you wanted to!
You can even take a ride on some saddles instead of stools up at the bar.
Yes, these are real saddles. Yes, you can sit up at the bar on one of these the whole time if you want. There are some small ones for the kids, too!
And let's not forget about the food! Silver Prairie's is second to none.
Grassland ribeye, shrimp, walleye, steak; it's a carnivore's dream! But the menu doesn't stop there - pretty much anyone could find something they'd love, and it is actually REALLY amazing food, not like your average small town bar & grill.
Throughout every week there are specials like Mexican food nights and anything else you could think of. Every day, something delicious is being made.
I'll take an order of those, please. And maybe the ribeye, too. I think I'm drooling a little bit...
Every day the place is open, year round, snow or shine, you can gather around the fire pit out front to share some great times with friends and family.
It truly is a unique and amazing place, all in one tiny town out in the middle of the Sheyenne National Grassland.
Silver Prairie Saloon is a hidden gem I would rank top of my list any day.
If you’d like to visit there – and you definitely should – you can find it at 11 Main Avenue in McLeod, ND, about an hour southwest of Fargo. You can’t miss it if you’re in town. A word of warning – this place does get very busy on the weekends, so plan accordingly. It’s just too good for such a small place!
