The hotel recommended the Canteen when I inquired about a good place for a burger, they didn't disappoint. Lots of locals, so it must be consistently good. The only tiny issue was not being asked how I wanted my burger done and I didn't catch it, so it came out pretty well done, but was still delicious. The homemade fries... More

Went to dinner on the recommendation of hotel clerk. Was seated promptly but later moved due to the noise level of the room we were in. The waitress tried, but could not really keep up. This was on a Friday night at 8:00 p.m. Had a hard time getting drinks from the bar. My husband had prime and I had... More

How can this be this town's #2 rated restaurant on Trip Advisor? I feel so sad for the people of North Platte! The atmosphere is not great, the service was terrible- we had to search for someone to pay because the staff pretty much left the building. The menu is basic and lackluster. If you don't eat meat, there is... More

The food was OK, but the price was way higher than it should have been. A salmon filet was $25 and not as good as Applebees, We were traveling through and it was recommended by the hotel staff - not sure why.

Ate dinner around 6 pm and was surprised that such a large place (multiple dining areas) was so empty. Sat in the bar area where only one other booth was occupied. Service was OK but not overly welcoming or accurate, as I just gave the waiter my card when he brought the check and didn't notice until signing that it... More

This restaurant was recommended by the front desk person at our hotel. It was after 7 pm, and we had been traveling all day, so we really weren't interested in the overpriced full dinners. Even pastas were $19 and dinners as high as $45. We had burgers. This is the only restaurant I have ever been in that charges 25¢... More

We stopped for lunch on TA Recommendiation. We both ordered salads and were pleasantly surprised with the size and quality. $9.50. Lots of other daily specials. If looking for light fare or heavy, you can find it here. I'd stop by again. Bar looked pretty good with TV and I like to think I know bars.

They are very service oriented. Very friendly stafff. My husband and I both had the steak. Outstanding. The party potato side I had was very good. My husband enjoyed the baked potato. It was our second time eating here. I recommend it.

Expecting a steak house in Nebraska, we were pleasantly surprised to be able to order seafood as well. Our mussels appetizer was plenty large (20) and in a wonderful wine sauce. The white crab pizza was a first for us, and it, too, was delicious. We enjoyed watching the football game on TV and ignored the Keno games every 10... More

Reading other reviews we had some concerns but went anyway and glad we did. I saw one review that took them to task for playing on the Canteen name, referring to the famous GI canteen located here in WWII. Being an historian I don't object as at least those who do not know of the famous canteen now do. And,... More
