Firstly, the server was either untrained, didn't care or just terrible. Worst server in Missoula. The prime rib was average, the lettuce wedge was just some iceberg lettuce which was presented like a dinner salad. The whipped potatoes were good.

This is a true gem, with a beautiful and unique atmosphere, very Montana! Love it. Nichole was very knowledgeable and friendly. The food is wonderful, fillet mignon was cooked to perfection, and the fries are awesome. Don't pass this place up, and right next door to the Missoula Hilton Garden Inn. Even if you don' t stay at the fabulous... More

The restaurant is a bit noisy, but clearly well maintained. Our waitress was helpful and well informed. My colleague had a steak, I had the trout. In both cases, the presentation was excellent. Some dinner rolls would have been a nice accompaniment. The dessert offerings were available to view, a practice that more restaurants should adopt.

A friend and I were staying at the hotel next door and decided to take a quick walk and come here for supper. We are so glad that we did! We each had a burger and sweet potato fries. The meal came with 3 different 'dipping sauces' for the fries. They were fun to try and were really delicious. The... More

Hello 1zenergygal, Thank you for your great review! I for one believe we have the best burger in town. I order one every week as a reminder. Our sweet potato fries have not been on the menu for long but are a crowd favorite. You chose some great items for your first visit. Everything on our menu is equally delicious,... More
