Albatross Sports Grill &Golf Club
By Mike Peterson
I arrived at Albatross one recent Saturday with friends Gary andChris. We were treated to a Boneless Chicken Wings ($8.99, breaded wings without the bones) and the Fish Basket ($11.99,Samuel Adams Beer-Battered Haddock served with Tartar Sauce). Albatross takes the place of the former Suite 49 bar, and is rightnext the Ralph Engelstad Arena; an attractive-looking and modern building.The items were of the classic, straight-up finger food kind and didreally well for their class. I had the Boneless Chicken Wings,which came breaded perfectly and had a good crunch to themcompsensated with ranch. Simple food for a simple eater, youmight say; I’m the type who would put on a big smile for any fin-ger food that comes with an excess of ranch dressing or ketchup.So I was pretty happy.Gary and Chris also enjoyed their beer-battered fish with tartar sauce and complimented it much.Albatross Sports Bar and Grill is owned by 28-year old AndrewKrauseneck and is a very cool place. Residents like us in the northwho are golf players will get by our long grueling winters with thecity’s only PGA Golf sims.There was an individual on the golf sims. Not only do they providea realistic golf sim in the middle of winter, they bring a fantasticescape. The landscape at the moment looked as if the golfer wassomewhere in New Zealand - probably the closest thing we’ll getto virtual reality at the moment.Their golf leagues can run late at night when they get booked. Thesimilators were created from 20 years of research and develop-ment, has the ability to dial in your distances and includes over 40available courses, including Pebble Beach, St. Andrews, TPC Saw-grass and Harbour town at a cost of $40 per hour, $20 for an extra30 minutes, and $10 for an extra 15. Oh, and you can also wear your golf shoes.As recently as late January, Albatross has been testing and tryingout mini-golf. This could be great for kids/families or just a groupof friends wanting to get out for a fun night of entertainment and afew beers, as their facebook page has said.The place also has 12 large high-definition screens, which worksreally well for the avid sports fan. They also have a large private banquet room that can fit almost 30 people.We never dove deep into their menu, but it reflects what you mightrun into at your country club or golf course on a much better level.A number of burgers, including the Classic Burger (‘1/3rd poundhand pattied burger on toasted bun’ according to the menu), Ex-treme “Ham” Burger (Classic Burger Patty with Habanero Cheese,Ham and More Cheese on Toasted Italian White Bread, and more.Different sandwhiches include the BLT Sandwich (loads of bacon,lettuce and tomato with mayo on toasted italian white bread andcan also be made as a wrap), the Golf ‘Club’ Sandwich, Ham &Cheese Sandwich, Ham & Cheese Sandwich and the UltimateGrilled Cheese.Lots of finger-food, as we have tried, which is perfect for the sportsand golf atmosphere. Some highlights include Cheese Curds, Gar-lic Cheesy Bread and Irish Nachos (waffle fries topped withcheese, jalapenos, tomatoes and chives with salsa and house-sea-soned sour cream; can add chicken or beef).Last year, Grand Forks Gourmet had reviewed Alabtross and cameaway with the mindset that it’s refreshing and unique. I concur.One would think it’s an establishment you might find in the TwinCities so it’s quite a treat for Grand Forks and for our friends fromup north as well. Personally, I’m not an avid golfer myself (thoughGary is), but I do plan on coming back because it can be the perfectsetting for a group of friends especially because of the deliciousfinger-food which we’ve tried, the many beers and now, the mini-golf. Albatross Sports Bar & Grill is located at 2950 10th Ave N, right infront of Ralph Engelstad. You can visit them online at www.albatrossgf.com and book your golf rounds ahead at 701-757-3320.
