“Best pizza in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

I have pizza from MRPCo several times a month. It is fantastic pizza. My fave is the Athenian on thin crust or the tomato basil on thin crust. Actually, there is no bad pizza here. The lodgepoles and rollini are really great too. Same with their salads.

Love the ales and wine selection here.

The service can be very slow during busy times. It's best not to eat here if you are on a schedule or in a hurry. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

“Mixed Feelings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

We went early Saturday night as we were passing through Bozeman. First, be prepared to wait. We had to wait a while to be seated, although the place was only about a third full. We had to wait for the waiter to take our drinks order, wait for him to come back to take our food order, he never did bring our check...we had to seek him out to pay for our dinner. He was certainly nice, but disappeared for long periods of time, even for a Saturday night. The interior was clean, bright, and appealing. After a while, the place got loud! Not restaurant loud, more like bar loud. We had to shout at each other across the table. Obviously this is not the restaurant's fault. I am just giving a heads up.

Second, the food was not that great. We ordered a made to order pizza and the children had cheese pizza kids meals. The made to order was okay. There were scant toppings and it had been overcooked, but the tomato sauce was nice and vest and the original crust was light and airy. The kids meals were horrible, my son's pizza had been overcooked to the point that the cheese was just a bubbly layer of brown and you could not cut through the crust. Even after being sliced up by the kitchen, we had to literally pry the pieces apart.

All things told, I might retry MacKenzie River - but not with hungry kiddos. This is more of a have a bottle of wine and visit with friends kind of place. To sum up, might be okay for adults and older teenagers. Would not recommend for those with younger children. The food is not worth the wait.

“Great family restaurant - gluten free pizza!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

I'm not a big pizza fan, but when I do feel like a pie, McKenzie River is the place to go. The pest breadsticks are great. Yesterday I had the Thai Pie, just spicy enough, it was delicious!

“Great pizza”

Very extensive menu, but specialize in pizza. Have good selection of tap beer. Good family place as they look after the kids. Handy downtown location.

“Beautiful restaurant !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2013 via mobile

We have eaten there many times and always have a great experience !! The menu is salads, soup and pizza. They also have a great local beer menu. I love this place and we always go at least once when in town.
