My wife and I have been here multiple times, and it always delivers. Quick and friendly service, the menu is vast and full of great options. I try to get something different each time. This visit I selected the cannelloni, and a bowl of jambalaya to start. Some bread came out with the soup, and it was nice and warm.... More

Try something old that new again! We are so very happy that we still have the Speak Easy. Everyone loved the meals they ordered the spaghetti and meatballs yum yum! The pasta carbonara super creamy.

Made an unplanned stop after an ice skating event late Saturday night. Just wanted a burger and fries. They have very good burgers, and my husband and son enjoyed the fries, however they are not GF. I mentioned this to our waiter and he supplied me with a Gluten Free menu, of which I substituted a baked potato, and they... More

We have moved out of the area so it had been a long time since we last visited the Speak Easy! It was just as we remembered it and the quality was good! We enjoyed the Saturday special of half-price burgers! Great appetizers and excellent meals!

The Speak Easy has been a mainstay in Moorhead for over forty years, and recently sold to new owners. Each time we have been in since the change, there are new additions or improvements. Still great food, but more attentive servers, new bar stools, big screen televisions, etc. We spend many Friday evenings seeing old friends there.

Stopped for a couple of appetizers on the way home from a work trip. Onion rings are the best I've ever had. Love the dummies too. Never had a bad meal here. Highly recommended. Chicken Cordon Bleu is my absolute favorite!

Had great anticipation on our date night, first time wife was there. Service was great, waiter very attentive and polite. Food took awhile, he was very apologetic. Taste wasnt what it was years ago but was still good. Might return.

Sort of an odd lay out for this restaurant that doesn't seem to know if it's a restaurant or bar. Entering, you immediately come across an expansive bar with no real hint at restaurant seating and no one to greet you. "Discovered" around the corner is a fairly interesting dining room with some nice retro furnishings and bizarre lighting which... More

Step back in time to enjoy the ambiance and fine Italian dinning with a fun twist. For that special meal or just a quick lunch Speak Easy delivers the goods.

Even though we were a large party (9), we were seated quickly, The waiter was attentive--refilled drinks, checked back with us. He had a playful attitude and made our visit enjoyable. And of course, the food was wonder Italian fare. Delicious!
