There's a brand new restaurant in town, and it's going to be the perfect summer spot. Located on the Missouri River in Mandan, this new restaurant is going to be a great place for families to come for brunch, lunch, dinner, and drinks. The Paddle Trap is open for business.

Last month, KX News reported that Mandan would be getting a brand new family-friendly restaurant right on the Missouri River this summer. Well, summer's here and so is the new place to eat. You can now check out The Paddle Trap when you're hanging out on the river.

According to a Facebook post from this morning (June 22), The Paddle Trap on the Missouri River in Mandan is officially open. The restaurant's website biography page says that the owners are local, and are excited for the opportunity to open a brand new restaurant on the river that everyone loves so much. As far as for food and atmosphere, The Paddle Trap's website says, "Executive Chef Aaron Bank brings a casual menu with a Southern Coast influence. Featuring Brunch, Lunch, Dinner and Kids Menus all served up with a stunning view." Southern Coast food? Yes, please!

Now, since The Paddle Trap is just in the beginning phases of opening, they're still working on some aspects of the restaurant and experience. The Facebook post says that while they are still looking to hire more people, they will be serving a limited menu for the week. Guests are encouraged to come check out The Paddle Trap this week.
