“Sparkling Waters has a unique old Italian atmosphere with umbrellas decorating the walls and ceiling. The service is generally friendly and efficient, with staff like Jess providing excellent service. However, there have been issues with the food. On one occasion, a half-rack of ribs was found to be cold and was returned, but was still cold upon return. The manager intervened, and the cost was removed from the bill. On a subsequent visit, the chicken in a chicken fettuccine alfredo was described as thin, dry, and rubbery, with the alfredo sauce being more like a bland cream sauce. The walleye had little taste, and the twice-baked potato appeared to be reheated. The prices were also considered high, with a service charge added for credit card payments. However, some customers have had positive experiences, such as Kim and Roger Amundson, who always feel special and appreciate the top-notch food and welcoming atmosphere.”

Customers` Favorites


“Dairy Queen is a popular ice cream spot in Bemidji, known for its friendly owners and good ice cream. The location offers a lake view and is a short walk from the iconic Paul and Babe statues. The restaurant serves standard DQ fare, including more buy-than-not options. The seating is limited, with only a few benches and a picnic table available. However, the service is fast, and customers appreciate the quick turnaround time, especially on hot days. The restaurant is set to open a Grill & Chill on the other side of town. Overall, Dairy Queen is a great place to enjoy a cool treat and take a break from the summer heat.”
