Heartland Trail B & B

20220 Friar Rd
Park Rapids, 56470
Reviews:
We were so delighted to stay at the Heartland Trail Bed And Breakfast! Nine of us took the four rooms in the upper floor that are connected by a large deck along the back; perfect for unwinding after a day of biking on the beautiful Heartland Trail. Our rooms were very comfortable with refrigerators, microwave ovens, fireplaces, and all with in-room bathrooms (which looked as though they had new fixtures). But what was even more awesome were the wonderful full breakfasts each morning. (Check out the pictures attached). We absolutely LOVED this B&B and the delightful owners! We were sad to leave. Even the weather was perfect! We will be back!

Best Coffee in Town! Good sandwiches, baked goods, etc.
Awesome little Coffee place in downtown Park Rapids. Italian Soda for the kids and Vanilla Latte was excellent!
I got a number 2 and it was amazing!! Such great food and such a cute cafe! However, the service isn't so great. Bad attitudes and bad hospitality. Would have given a 5 if the service had been better. Food is still some of the best I've ever had! Highly recommend!

If you are looking for "down home Americana" you need look no further. We love the breakfast. The French toast with their homemade"goo" is a favorite. You can not go wrong with the biscuits and gravy or the omlettes. Relax and meet the locals, you will not be disappointed.
This place has simply the best breakfasts around! The French toast is AMAZING. And believe me when I say to only order one or two slices to begin with... Probably only one. This is a hole in the wall type of joint that I've been going to for years. It's just delicious!!
Good breakfast, straight up. No frills. Hometown cafe. Eggs, coffee & old folks. Cooks singing in the back is a bonus (we sat at the counter)! Haha An elderly regular left his mint & she brought it out to him, saying "Lyle, you forgot your mint!" Love places like this.

Dorset General Store & La Pasta Eatery

Reviews:
I've eaten here a couple of times and really like the menu layout and food. I love Italian food and this place is really good at it. The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of 5 is the ambiance. Window air conditioners are noisy and spoil the otherwise nice, cozy atmosphere. I'll go back though. As I said, love the food!
Worst Italian in decades. Ordered fettuccine Alfredo. Fettuccine was limp, soggy with a sauce that was overpowered with a taste of raw garlic and no distinguishable cheese. Had questions before meal and had specifically requested the pasta "al dente". Waitress ignored us as I sat not eating. No attempt to ask about meal even when I chose not to box the entree to take home after trying two bites. Stay away.
I was impressed with the depth of the menu in this small town Italian eatery (though Dorset is the so-called Restaurant Capital of the World). The menu is broken into olive oil based dishes, cream sauced dishes and specialties including an interesting variety of seafood dishes. We really like all the entrees that we ordered (mushroom ravioli and cannelloni), but when we got to dessert and ordered the chocolate lasagna, we were disappointed. It was a very tall slice of what tasted like Duncan Hines cake with super-sweet chocolate frosting. Way too large and way too generic. I give La Pasta 4-stars because the main meal and drinks were fine and the ambiance was quiet and comfy. Overall, an enjoyable experience.

Best ice cream and sandwiches in town! I highly recommend the pulled pork sandwich with provolone cheese on gluten free bread. Excellent!! My mom had a half ham sandwich and she needed a box to take home the rest and the potato chips. Topped it off with a chocolate malt and we are good to go!! Do not pass this place up.
Terrible service. Sat at the counter with 5 servers around ignoring us. Ice cream is fine but not worth the lack of service.
Stopped by here for some lunch and shakes with friends. I ordered the roast beef sub 1/2 size and a chocolate banana shake. There half size looked to be like a foot long sub I can't imagine what there full size sub looked like. The sub was yummy (way way better than subway) and the shake was amazing tasted like a chocolate covered banana! Service was great we were greeted and seated upon arrival I will definitely be stopping by here again. Also the food is fairly priced you get alot of bang for your buck!

Hilltop Inn

Reviews:
The place is nice it sits on a corner overlooking the lake across the road. The place was clean and the server was very friendly and helpful. Based on these things alone the Hilltop Inn would be worthy of four stars. But then there is the food and what they charge for the food. I had a half rack of bbq ribs with sides of mashed potatoes and broccoli. My date had a hamburger with mushrooms and onions with a side of fries. The ribs were not smoked ribs just cooked ribs with a bare amount of bland bbq sauce on them. The ribs had very little in the way of taste, I guess they use the bare minimum of spices. The mashed potatoes were lumpy but tasted fine and the broccoli was well broccoli. My dates burger was cooked just right and smothered in mushrooms onions and cheese. The fries were ok as fries go and the serving size was plentiful. The meal cost $ 40 ( not including tip ) and 2 adult beverages which seems a little high for the food they put out. I should have ordered the burger rather than the bland ribs I ordered. I give my meal 1 star but my dates burger was worthy of 4 stars. I wanted to give them a higher rating but the ribs and the mashed potatoes really left a negative impression on me.
Good food. Unfortunately they did not honor the yelp coupon they advertised.
This place is good. Tried the parmesan truffle fries which were on special (delicious) and had a cheeseburger. The bun was toasted to perfection and the burger was cooked perfectly. The food is simple, but deeply satisfying.

I came here for dinner with coworkers and we ordered the pregnant burrito, and a Cuban pizza, and the nachos as an appetizer which is great for a group of 4-6 to share, very large portion! the food was delicious without A doubt, but ordering from the bar to have the food later served was definitely something strange to encounter. The atmosphere is very casual and the waitress Bailey was super nice and informing on some great places to check out while we're all in town. Would recommend going here in the future especially with a group.
For being in the middle of nowhere, it's a decent place with some decent food. It's right on a lake, which is nice. You sit at a table but have to go up to the bar to place your order, which is interesting. The nachos appetizer was pretty good! Nothing special, but nachos. Pregnant burrito was not too bad either! Stuffed with fillings and literally would look like a pregnant burrito, if that were possible.
I've seen ads for Zorbaz in northern Minnesota for years...and a few weekends ago while visiting a buddy's cabin "up nordt" I finally made a visit to the land of words with excessive and unnecessary "Z's". We enjoyed a couple of beers on tap, and me and a buddy shared a BBQ chicken pizza. Positives: -TMNT arcade game! Seriously, this was the best part. The 4 of us went through many a quarter to relive our youth and beat this fun side-scroller. -Free popcorn and decent taplist. Negatives: -Insane, over-the-top douche vibe. The repetitive "Z" crap makes me want to vomit, along with the continuous dance music. I don't mind the music in the right setting, but at 2pm on a Saturday Honestly, the whole vibe of the place just completely turned me off...no reason for me to come back.

This place was terrible. The wait staff was incompetent and somewhat rude. Here's the deal....... I ate there with my family I had the pork hock. The hock was good the potatoes and gravy were cold and the red cabbage was room temperature. My wife had the weiener schnitzel with noodles which were mediocre and red cabbage that was so hot she eat it for several minutes. Next my two daughters ordered French onion soup which arrived cold with the cheese unmelted on top. We sent the soup back and it came back lukewarm the second time. I suggested the girls order something else which they did. Mashed potatoes and gravy and French fries. Again the potatoes and gravy were cold. My son ordered the pork sandwich and a cup of French onion soup. The sandwich was subpar and of course the soup was cold. One of the amusing things was that whenever the server brought out a dish she had to ask whose it was even when she carried out the last dish. Overall it was a bad experience from the food to the atmosphere to the staff. I hope the management reads this and improves their restaurant.
Bring cash! Great food. Good service. Credit card thing is frustrating though.
My favorite place for breakfast in Park Rapids! Unique German atmosphere and you can't beat the model train! It's seat yourself, but the waitstaff Is usually good.Just be aware they don't take debit cards so you have to dust off the old checkbook or cash.
