Longhorn Steakhouse Coming to Bismarck


Bismarck is about to see another steakhouse in town. A site plan has been submitted and approved for construction of a Longhorn Steakhouse restaurant located just south of Gateway Fashion Mall on Gateway Avenue.

Part of Darden Restaurants, Longhorn is under the same corporate umbrella as Olive Garden and, up until this year, Red Lobster. This will be the third Longhorn location in North Dakota, with existing locations in Fargo and Minot – the latter of which recently opened in 2013. Founded in 1981, there are currently 445 locations in 38 states, according to its website.

Further details are forthcoming, including an anticipated opening date.

UPDATE (10/15/2014): A representative from Darden Restaurants has confirmed that they are scouting locations for a Longhorn location in Bismarck; however, have not yet officially signed any definitive agreements, adding that it’s premature to provide further details on its opening.
