Okay, so most servers might be very pleasant but one or two might be a little abrupt, and the decor might be a little brassy, but this isn't a fine dining place. It's a diner, with all that the name implies. The food is tasty, honest, and straightforward; the place is clean, the prices reasonable. But the malts and shakes... More

Great service. Good food. Didn't have any issues. In fact the waitress went out of her way over and over to make sure.

Overpriced for what you get except for the knoephla soup, do yourself a favor and go across the street to the truck stop, and just because you serve a few german dishes it does not make you a german restaurant.

Being a regular at this diner and a big supporter and participant of the Bismarck Krolls Diner Marathon, it is upsetting when it is impossible to get a refill on your drinks on a day when there are 4 patrons in the dining room and 8 staff. On the bright side the food was outstanding as always.

We went here for breakfast and the wife kids and I was very satisfied with the service and food. Really loved the 50s style layout and the servings was more than generous. Will definitely be going back again

We are a large German family, from Canada, and anytime we are in Minot, we visit this amazing restaurant. You never leave hungry! The food is absolutely amazing! The knephalt soup is my all time favourite. We make one similar at home called G'Dovals and Glacé, however I much prefer the stuff at Krolls. Who knew that milkshakes could be... More

We love to eat here! But you have to go for Monday 1/2 price handmade milkshakes. The best! Servers are very welcoming. Will go back

if you are looking for the 50's theme in dining this your place. What a great place, was there a year ago and if anything it has even got better. They will even make small helpings or huge. Meals are delicious, you won't go wrong.

Stopped there for an early dinner. Seems to be a popular place, lots of people there, but no wait. Good food, pleasant wait staff. Enjoyable experience.
