5. Williston Brewing Company, Williston, North Dakota
We rarely travel to Williston, North Dakota without stopping at the Williston Brewing Company. It’s adjacent to one of our favorite lodging places, conveniently, the El Rancho. Not only do we appreciate the cosmopolitan cowboy flare of this eatery and bar, we like the coziness and warmth we find there. The menu items include some of our favorites (Carrot Cake, anyone? ) but the microbrews are astounding. Wine! Did we mention wine? The Williston Brewing Company has one of the largest, if not the largest selection in the upper midwest!!

6. Pastime Club and Steakhouse, Marmarth, North Dakota
Have you ever stumbled upon a dining experience which was not only unexpectedly good, but was….. truly unexpected! In every way! The Pastime Club in the small burg of Marmarth in the far southwestern corner of North Dakota is a jaw-dropper! We encountered it first when on a motorcycle run. A small bar with cold, refreshing drinks was what we were after that time. As we quenched our drastic thirst in the dark, cool bar area, we noticed that there was an eatery of some sort at the back of the establishment. Next time…..we’d explore that next time.
And we did. On a spring day when the Little Missouri River was over running it’s banks wildly, we had followed it down old (muddy) highway 16, which ended in Marmarth, on historic highway 12. This time we were not only thirsty, we were hungry. So, we explored.
