The staff here is wonderful . It's a team effort here , where it feels like the entire staff is constantly waiting on you . Wonderful service I've tried several of the dishes here The gyoza ( potstickers ) are excellent The Mongolian beef is excellent , although a bit spicier than I've had it before .. But I love it ( if you like spicy , you'll like it) The tempura shrimp and veggies are really good Sweet and sour chicken was good , but a little bit too breaded for me The teriyaki beef was also very good The tempura ice cream and mochi are also delicious. Overall , I keep coming back to try new things and I haven't found anything that I disliked .
Dinner on a Monday early, 5pm: Welcoming staff, great service, our complete dinner was served 5min after ordering. Awkward booth though- the table was above my chest. I'd ask for a table & chairs next time. Immediate drinks. Tasty egg drop soup. Two flavorless spring rolls were presented beautifully with an excellent peanut sauce. Each piece of the roll contained only 1 butterflied shrimp=4 total. DH loved his combo fried rice with chicken, beef, & 3 shrimp. I'd eat there again.
Top of the line, top notch staff, and adequately priced for the quality of fresh, delicious fish this far from the ocean. I was originally skeptical of a sushi fusion restaurant so far from the coast, but I went and had an absolutely amazing time. The rainbow roll was fantastic. The environment is calm and a little dark, as it's supposed to be. They have an ample selection of imported and domestic alcohol, as well. I was only able to go 4 times in my 3 months in Williston, but I'm not lying when I almost consider it worth it to fly back just to eat there. Don't believe me? Just try it.

Love love love this place. Staff, food, atmosphere, everything is great. Very clean, fast, and so friendly. Highly recommend.!!!
It's a new location, so I give them some slack. The service was great, all the employees were very friendly and courteous. I ordered the cream of potato soup and ty cobb salad. The portions are great, but the employee made my salad a little larger than normal he said. I really enjoyed the soup. It tasted fresh and made from scratch, even if it wasn't. I also enjoyed the balsamic dressing. My one complaint, that kept it from a five-star experience. The ty cobb salad didn't have onions listed on the ingredients and they are all over this salad. If you're an avid onion unenthusiast like myself, this is a big deal. It easily turned a great salad into an unpleasant one. The salad, cup of soup and drink cost $17.00
I was there on business and needed a good soap and sandwich. This place knows how to get customers back. Service was fast, fresh and generous.

Customer service is pretty much lacking in 90% of Williston & it's no different here. "We can't make a thin crust medium pizza, only large." (What?) and "No, we can't cut your pizza in half." But beyond that, was the pizza good? Oh yes Baby!!! It was delicious! I'll go again & hopefully someone else who can smile will be working!

Excellent burgers and chicken Sandwiches!! Very affordable and way better than even Hardee's! Clean place and staff are polite and busy! Our first time here and I'm impressed! Gotta see for yourself!
Been here a few times and it's a hit and miss. Mixers are always good but the food lacks most times. My most recent experience I waited 20 minutes in the drive thru for my food and when I started eating 5 minutes down the road the burger was super chewy and the fries were cold and stale.

Outlaws Bar & Grill

1319 9th Ave NW
Williston, 58801
Reviews:
I love the food here Steaks are awesome I've had the prime rib and the flat iron ,. Both cooked perfectly . The Asiago potatoes are awesome The Caesar dressing is super garlicky , so I wouldn't suggest it if you aren't a big fan of heavy garlic flavor . The French dip is really good and the cheesy fried pickles are freakin awesome ... They are like a grilled cheese on crack . Amazeballs . The staff is always very friendly as well. The iced tea isn't my favorite here , but that's really not a whole lot to complain about .
Great waitress Heather, self proclaimed "new" but she was thorough Fried Brussels sprouts tasty appetizer . A small Cowboy Cesar salad they're "known for" was nothing at all exciting. Cesar's are supposed to be pre-tossed and evenly coated in dressing. I got a tiny plastic cup impossible to dip or spread evenly. Small plate piled with too much romaine to toss. Added steak tips to the salad; nothing exciting. Cooked correctly to medium. French onion soup excellent. Ice tea bitter brown water. Husband ate a Farmhouse Burger with a side of onion rings. He said it was yummy and he would eat it again. Not sure it was worth $58.
This is an esthetically pleasing restaurant from the outside and inside it seems kind of cold and impersonal, I know Williston has higher prices because of the oil fields nearby but visitors feel the pinch. I ordered a hamburger because I felt that everything was overpriced and the burger was on the less expensive part of the menu. It was an average hamburger on par with Applebee's or Chili's not worth what they ask for it. They weren't that busy and the service was slow and lacking personality. Outlaws is not worth the money and I doubt I will ever return.

Wildcat Pizzeria

Reviews:
Good pizza, huge portions, Williston prices. My group ordered the meatiterian (all meat) and the supreme - the meatiterian was excellent and the supreme was good. I will be going here again, for sure.
The woman trying to run this is insane. She has no idea about food quality, customer service, or how to treat employees. Incase anyone is wondering why the wildcat is closed its not due to "electrical issues" as she claims, its due to her being a psycho and running off ALL the employees. So if you go to wildcat, beware. If there ever is a new crew they don't know any of the recipes for what matters. RIP Wildcat
The pizza is always good but it's also the most expensive pizza I have ever purchased. I still go to wildcat but I just get the hot dog combo with chips. I believe it's 3.50 and well worth it one of the best hot dogs I've had. I give wildcat 3 stars only because the pizza is do outrageously priced.

Reviews:
We had the Philly and chicken parm, both he were huge and delicious! Not super friendly but not rude staff. Water was 2.00 ugh. We'll be back for sure!
After eating the food from a couple of the other restaurants in Williston, I was reluctant to risk dysentery to try another. But since I'm "oil trash" I don't have time to cook. I live in a Kenworth truck, and I gotta eat. This place delivered delicious food to me in my truck at the Love's truck stop quickly and at a fair price. Great tasting teriyaki pita! The delivery driver was even friendly. Am I in Williston?!?
Good gyros, crispy fries. Definitely a local business I'll continue to support. On deliveries, it'd be nice to have the sauce on the side and fresh pita bread separate from the foil-wrapped goods. A 45 minute wait for delivery in Williston is no problem to me...but I'd rather throw the ingredients together when it arrives if it helps avoid eating a slightly soggy/lukewarm gyro. Worth another star for sure if those suggestions are implemented for delivery.

Los Compadres Steak & Seafood Grill

216 Main St
Williston, 58801
Reviews:
This is the second time my wife and I have been here. My wife got steak fajitas which she very much enjoyed. She likes the extra vegetables they put in there. This time we brought the kids. The service was great and friendly staff. The salsa and chips are fresh. I got the burrito both times I went and it didn't disappoint. I like spicy so I ordered some grilled jalapeños on the side to give some extra kick. The burrito itself though is all the great things about Mexican in one flour tortilla. The flavors marry well together for just the right taste. Hard to find a place authentic in North Dakota but this is one is a good bet. We will definitely be back.
Even if the food is great (hasn't arrived yet) it's way overpriced, even for Williston ND. Beer is cold, chips and salsa are good. Ok, food is here. Wow, was not aware that a blender should be involved in making guacamole. Apparently it is here. Otherwise the shredded beef taco and enchilada, rice and beans is good. Decor and atmosphere are acceptable. I'd have to call Don Pedro's by far the better MR here in Williston. Not even a close contest. One thing I noticed is 3/4 of the entrees here at Los Compadres have mushrooms. Clearly the cook or owner is a mushroom freak. If that's you also, this is your place. Enjoy. As for me, this will be a one time visit.
Awesome food! Nest Mexican food in Williston by far! If your in the neighborhood and hunger for Mexico's take Steak or Shrimp definitely stop here! The waitress are very helpful and always willing to help you pick something new and exciting! Family friendly great food at a good price with good service is hard to find in Williston, enjoy it!

Eleven Restaurant and Lounge

The Williston,408 1st Ave E
Williston, 58801
Reviews:
Almost a year later and maybe some of the faces have changed, but the quality of the food and the level of service have remained at the high bar that I originally mentioned. Come here, you will not be disappointed.
** I must first preface this review by saying that I'm rating this restaurant by Bakken oil field standards - NOT by big city standards! Anyone who's been to this area of the country or lives here knows what I'm talking about. ** Alright, so if I had an important business dinner, hot date, or found myself missing the more refined foods I've enjoyed while living in bigger cities, this would probably be the place I'd come. It's arguably the nicest restaurant in the Bakken (at least in the Williston/Watford City areas). Housed in a restored old Elk's Lodge, Eleven Restaurant & Lounge boasts white table cloths, dim/moody lighting, an attentive yet aloof black-clad waitstaff reminiscent of the struggling actor/waiters of Los Angeles, and an extensive yet meat-heavy menu. If you come here for dinner, your wallet will be significantly lighter when you leave as they charge an arm, leg, and first born child for relatively small amounts of food. My hubby was gunning to order a small steak for $50...that is until he found out that this steak came by itself - no side salad, no soup, no sides even - just a small piece of steak chillin' alone on a plate. The waiter asked him if he'd liked to purchase a side dish. Really?! It's not like we're in Beverly Hills. Instead, he ended up ordering the smoked rabbit - which was a horror story in itself (see photo if you dare). The rabbit, which looked like a small whale tail, came out tasting like jerky - good but tough and hard to eat (or watch it being eaten - ick!). I think we will both have nightmares about that dish for years to come. As for me, I've ordered a delicious cheese plate, some decent baked brie, some alright cheese ravioli, and some passable creme brûlées. Nothing has ever been really amazing but nothing (except that frightening smoked rabbit) has been horrible. Overall, Eleven is probably the best restaurant I've eaten at up here aside from some of the little culinary gems in Bismarck. Yet, I just can't bring myself to give it a full five stars due to the exorbitant pricing, small portions, and average food quality.
The best fine dining in town hands down. Some unique options for dinner entrees and a great selection for appetizers and bar menu. Expensive, but not really relative to the rest of the town and quality of food. I recommend trying whatever the chef is currently experimenting on with the smoker.
