Monday - Thirsty's Bar and Grill
Known for their well-priced food items, Thirsty’s Bar is a great place to eat in downtown Devils Lake. If heading there for lunch you will often find people gathered around playing cards as Thirsty’s is a local favorite hangout spot with a friendly atmosphere.
If you head to Thirsty’s on a Monday night you can experience owner Sarah’s dog house night. Served in a dog bowl with chips or fries you will have a hard time deciding which hot dogs to try, which is probably why they have an option to add a second hot dog at a discounted price.

Friday - The Ranch Steakhouse
Voted one of the best 50 steakhouses in America, The Ranch is a definite favorite among locals and regular hunters and fisherman visiting Devils Lake. The Ranch, with its rustic charm and homemade comfort food, is a landmark restaurant in Devils Lake; it was established by 1946 when a young couple converted it from a massive barn that was located on a Devils Lake Farmstead. Today you can often find the current owners Joel and Ashley making sure everyone is getting the best treatment and food in their restaurant.
The Ranch is best known for their prime rib served every day until gone and of course their steaks. But many locals visit the ranch for their sushi roll where they are often found asking “what is your sushi roll today?” as soon as they sit down.
If you are 21 and over and you sit in their downstairs bar which features special bar options like select $5 appetizers, including the sushi roll and $1 grandpa beers every day from 4-6 and 8:30-10.
