About Us

Originally established as a King’s Food Host in 1969 by William J. Wood, the Wood House Restaurant subsequently came into being around 1979. The Wood House is a locally-owned, non-chain family restaurant featuring many made in-house, from scratch, classic American food items, including:

The world’s finest hamburger, renowned broasted chicken, fantastic soups, awesome onion rings, classic cheese frenchees, hard ice cream malts, and a great selection of pies.

We take great pride in the daily grinding of our own USDA choice-grade Certified Angus Beef, the hand breading of our broasted chicken, and the many other homemade items. Some may call our old school, no-gimmicks style of good service and top-notch food a “throwback”, but we take that as a compliment.

We have been a staple in the Bismarck/Mandan area for decades and welcome all to give us a try. From the Wood House family to you, we wish you well.

“Great food, prices, and there is a phone in every booth to order our food. The best hamburgers and fish burgers, cold sandwiches, fries, onion rings, malts, and much more. A great family place!”

“Old fashioned burger taste. Best cheeseburger I’ve had in years. Very polite service as well!”

“The Wood House has the world’s greatest burgers. I have traveled all over and nothing comes close to what the Wood House offers. Everything is handmade and delicious. It has a historic feel that is cool to experience – even down to the way you order is unique the Wood House is a must stop for any foodie.”
