With a glassed-in porch and extensive patio seating, the historic stone Usher's House restaurant is one of the most scenic places to dine in Fargo-Moorhead.
Tucked beneath the trees of Davey Memorial Park and looking as sturdy as a stone vault, Usher's House restaurant completely stands out from other Fargo-Moorhead restaurants. It doesn't hurt that it has a beautiful location poised above the curves of the Red River. It's the kind of setting where you want to linger, whether you're on the patio or in the gazebo on a balmy summer day, or enjoying the winter landscape from the lovely glassed-in restaurant. You reach the restaurant by going through Monk's Pub, which is filled with dark workwook and deep booths. It makes the small restaurant with seating for 60 people feel that much airier, letting views of the park provide the ambience. Menus change seasonally, but look for items such as lamb oatmeal stout stew with fingerling potatoes, bruschetta flatbread with balsamic reduction, spinach salad with a smoky tomato dressing, wild mushroom strudel and bourbon-glazed salmon over squash risotto.
