“Fun Place”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

Went out for dessert and coffee at the Montana Ale Works. Had the Chocolate Pots de creme. I am a chocoholic and could have eaten 2 - warning - it is rich. Husband had apple pie bread pudding - but he wasn't as impressed as I was. Can get loud and busy very quickly.

“Tonight was one of those nights where everything was right.”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

Once in a while I stumble into a restaurant that seems to get it all right! My 1/2 pound Wagyu burger was spot on and the service matched. Being by myself and this place being very busy I pulled up the seat at the bar and in did up being witness to a very well oiled machine. Whoever manages this place does an excellent job. It's a shame that restaurants with this quality of food and staff are so far and few between. I will definitely be back.

One thing to keep in mind this place is for dinner only as it does not open till 4 o'clock in the afternoon.

“Great Food!”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

The menu here is rather limited and not very big but everything I have tried off of it has been amazing! It is a little pricey for the portion you get, but it has a nice laid back atmosphere and is a great place to meet friends. I'm not a beer drinker but the selection looked pretty decent from what I could tell.

“Good beer”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

Not a huge food selection and what I ordered (pasta) was overpriced for the amount I received. My husband got the meatloaf and his was very good and we'll worth the money. The restaurant is located in what appears to be an old warehouse so atmosphere was unique. Huge bar, great place overall. Bartenders knowledgeable on beer and all staff was very friendly.
