Yes, you read that right, and I will type it again... Years and Years and Years of BONZER'S! I first stepped foot into the original Bonzer's back in '89... one year before I turned 21. Four Decades! Yup! Good times! To this day, I miss that old place! Several friends worked there over the years and we all enjoyed the... More

Bonzers has been in GF since ages ago.. I remember eating in the basement where they first started on N 4th before the flood. Sandwiches are their mainstay... great beer. but if you're looking for a realistic version of the Reuban - you'll need look no further... I've had the best of the best - and these are a very...

I went here before a concert with a friend of mine because I had heard it had great food. To be honest, the bar is fun, I've been here before and they have a good selection (though not fancy) and a fun atmosphere. But we went here to eat and I wasn't really impressed. My friend ordered a rueben and... More

This place has been around a long time, but different owners. The old Bonzer's had great sandwiches and wild rice chicken soup that was out of this world. This has become more of a bar setting with food available, and not that great of food plus it's expensive. Will not be going back.

Hi Vicky. After a quick look at your TripAdvisor profile I see that you were told that you weren't allowed to bring minors into our establishment. This is an unfortunate reality, as Grand Forks city code no longer allows us to host people under the age of 21 - a rule that was not our decision, and one that we... More

Every time I am in Grand Forks I make a point to stop at Bonzer's. It is one of those places where you after you finish your meal you will want to stick around and enjoy the fun and laid back atmosphere. A couple of Schooners later and everyone is your friend.

There's no better sandwich in town than the Bonzer Rueben. Chili (made daily) is divine - should always be ordered with cheese & onions. All washed down with a schooner or nine of always refreshing coors light.
