Space Aliens Grill & Bar

Reviewed By Jean M

I have enjoyed Space Aliens in other cities. I love the baked potatoes. This one was sub-par—harder and not up to normal quality—and had some grains of what I believe to be sand. I stopped eating the skins due to that. I won’t come back. I will state that the server was very good.

Reviewed By DebOnVacay

We very much enjoyed our meal here. If you like tapas and drinks or food in general, you should try this place. The atmosphere is very comfortable and it’s a great place for a leisurely meal. The neighboring table had truffle fries that aren’t on the menu but are worth asking for. The filet mignon was perfectly cooked and delicious. If it’s cold outside, park in the parking garage, it’s connected to the building on the east side.Hi there! Thank you so much for taking the time to provide such fantastic feedback on your experience with us! We hope you will come back again soon!!!

Tuscany Salad for Two which is Asparagus, artichokes, mushrooms, broccoli, onions, squash and sugar snap peas with red peppers, kalamata olives and sun-dried tomatoes sauteed and served over greens with honey-mustard vinaigrette. Sounds good but hugh disappointment!One would assume the vegetables would have been sauteed for less 2 minutes on high heat not simmered to death. The sugar snap peas and squash were the worst. Technique is a basic skill 101 Culinary school.

Reviewed By gshore

So disappointed. I have been to Peacock Alley before and was telling my friend how great it was and how lucky we were to get a table for Easter. It started badly when I ordered a Mimosa and they told me that they had run out of champagne. Then we went to the buffet. The first stop was the worst. They had a corn casserole - it might have been good but it slopped all over the counter and there was a lot of corn on the floor. I told the folks standing behind the area that they should really clean it up. When we left an hour or so later they was still corn on the floor. That lack of care is bad enough for any ole restaurant but I expect so much more from this one. The rest of the food was just okay. The Bloody Mary was the one great point; the bacon was good. Just read the other Easter review - we arrived at the same time but there was even less food available for us. We had meatball casserole and breakfast items. Nothing else was there. When we went back for dessert - 3 kinds of cake (ok but nothing special) there were no plates or forks - someone had to go and get those. An awful and embarrassing experience.

My girlfriend and I come here for the fried pickles and sweet potato fries. The pickles are amazing. They are a spear with Havarti cheese all fried around a type of egg roll. It’s served with a slightly spicy, but tasty dipping sauce. The sweet potato fries are the best in town, also the dipping sauce is great for them as well.They have a good food menu and the atmosphere is cozy. Its 21+.Also to end your evening at the Toasted Frog, you must try a Martini. They have a whole book of them. I recommend “The Hibernating Frog”, as a dessert drink.I hope that helps! You won’t be disappointed.

April was our server and she did a very good job and was very attentive Did not have any alcoholic drinks because I do not like craft beers or the bottle beer they had. .Hi Rodney, thank you for sharing!

I don't understand the great reviews although there's a good varieties of burgers. He said chicken sandwich and tots were fine and hot, although chicken was lightly seasoned. I had Jameson burger and fries. Neither were particularly hot. Bacon was tough rather than crispy. I rarely salt food but had to salt burger twice for it to have any flavor. Jameson sauce tasted like bottled barbecue rather than Jameson. Fries were thin and ok Iced tea was great. Service was goodI apologize for the bad experience that you received, it is unacceptable and not to our standards at all. I can assure you that we are all working very hard to ensure that no customer leaves our place having this type of experience in the near future.

The area's only authentic Irish pub located in downtown Bismarck. Stop in for a great meal, enjoy the sounds of the Emerald Isle & choose from a selection of 30 draft beer selections.

Reviewed By CSoupie

Located in an older part of Bismarck, this Pub is truly Irish. It has a dimmer interior and dark wood, but the service was fantastic . The menu is not extensive, but they have some traditional Irish fare, as well as some modern classics. My husband had the Fish and Chips and I had the Cippino and both were great. They have a decent wine selection in addition to several imported Irish beers. The prices are reasonable and we would definitely eat there again when we are in Bismarck
