Description: The Dominion Hotel has been the "Hot Spot" in downtown Minden since it first started providing food, drink and accommodation in 1865. Newly renovated, this establishment is the oldest operating business in Minden and the oldest standing commercial building. Whether you're looking for a healthy pub lunch, a cold drink on the Tiki Bar patio, or a quiet dinner in the dining room, the Dominion Hotel is known for fresh, healthy, homestyle cooking. The Dominion Hotel is the home of the best handmade burgers in the county. The fresh cut fries are extremely popular and the liver and onions are famous. Accommodations at the Dominion Hotel are luxurious and quiet. Each suite has flat screen TVs with DVD players, wireless internet and the most comfortable beds in the business. Organic cotton towels, Egyptian cotton sheets and non allergic pillows and duvets will help ensure a relaxing stay. Family Friendly, great food, fun times - that's the Dominion Hotel in a nutshell. Off street parking available. Drop in and check your email. We're an internet hotspot.

Three of us went there Monday night around 7pm for dinner and a drink. The restaurant and patio were both half full, we sat on the patio.
Fifteen minutes later a server acknowledged us and took our order. A few minutes later three patio tables had finished and left so it was not that busy. Twenty minutes more and a party of two and a party of four sat on the patio.
After waiting forty five minutes we asked a server if there was a problem with our order and we were told it would be out in six or seven minutes.
An hour and twenty minutes after we ordered our wings finally came. The parties that came in after us were almost finished eating by this time. One of our orders was wrong and the other orders of wings were very salty and dry. Then to top it of our bill was all wrong and had to be recalculated.
For three years we normally frequent the Dominion at least once a month for dinner. Not anymore. Worst dining experience ever.
Thankfully the Boshkung Pub just opened up down the road.

Waitress was lovely, however wasn't up front about the 45 minute to an hour wait for food until after we'd been seated, and another server filled us in. Not a big deal, as we weren't in a rush, but something to bear in mind. Saw two, maybe 3 servers for the whole place (on a Saturday) who were running off their feet. Can't say if this is normal or not. Food was good when it came out - hot and fresh - but expensive. Nearly $200 (including tax and tip) for a shared appetizer platter, two drinks each, and a sandwich/burger each, for 4 people. Sandwiches don't come with sides, so the prices listed seem a little unreasonable given that the sandwiches are good, but nothing spectacular. My suggestion would be to give it a try for a drink on the patio and an appetizer.

We ordered soup and Black Bean burgers. The soup was homemade, hot and delicious. Burgers arrived almost simultaneously so by the time we got around to eating them, they were almost cold. Taste was good though, buns and fixings nice and fresh. Friendly service, very clean and very clean bathrooms.

Not outstanding, but ok pub food and beer on their new outdoor terrace. Live music to boot! Nice place to relax on a hot summer day.
