What does winning the best Moorhead restaurant mean to you?

“That’s a huge ode to my kitchen team,” Co-owner Marissa West said. “It’s hard to create a different product for your people … because it is sports bar food. Food for us is such a big part of our business, so a lot of what we do is a little different so it’s not just a burger and fries. We try to be creative. We try to build big items that can be shareable. We make it big and we make it memorable.”

Do you have a signature item?

“I would say the Spuddy Bloody (shareable Bloody Mary) or our nachos,” West said. “It’s enough for two people. Our nachos feed four people. The Spuddy Bloody has this gigantic pretzel on it and wings and celery and cheese and olives. … It’s got that drive-by appeal, people kind of stop and look at it.”

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
