Reviewed 25 November 2013

We stayed at La Quinta which is just steps away from this restaurant and is ultimately what made us choose this for dinner. Our server was excellent and made very appropriate suggestions for our food, drinks to compliment, and appy. Everything was great, she was attentive but not over the top, friendly, and all if her suggestions suited our tastes to a t! Incredible food, awesome value!!

“Nice atmosphere, very comfortable, friendly service”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

Great Falls seemed a little depressed compared to other places in Montana. The downtown area saw a number of us tourists out looking for a place to eat. Nothing was happening that we could see even though we walked perhaps two miles in a couple big rectangular paths. We googled restaurants and the McKenzie river Pizza place was a few block South.
The atmosphere was fun and inviting and the server was very friendly and helpful. We like Microbrews that are not too heavy in hops and we got good recommendations from our server.

“Still More Things on the Menu to Try”
Reviewed 10 November 2013 via mobile

This was our second visit to the Mackenzie River Pizza Company. The food has always been good, the sweet Bar-B-Q sauce on their wings and some of their pizzas is really quite good. Service is good, you don't feel rushed. My guess is that we will keep coming back whenever we are in Great Falls until we have tried most of the menu.

“Hits the spot!”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

My family has eaten here a few times. I always enjoy the unique variety of pizzas, and the lodgepoles provide a yummy appetizer. Although I personally have not had the pasta, I have a friend who tells me it's delicious too. During this trip I had family members who tried the house dressing with their salads, and it was to die for! They ended up buying some! The beer and wine offerings are also a great companion to the pizza.

While visiting MR Pizza this trip our leftovers were mistakenly taken after being boxed up, and before we could even blink we were being told new pizzas were being baked for us. This gesture proves great customer service still exists, and we were impressed.

Also, a note about pizza sizes...there is a big jump in size from small (more of a personal size, or good for two people who are lighter eaters) to large. If ordering a large make sure you are hungry.

“Great food and excellent staff”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

Pizza was very good, great crust and toppings. Lots of choice on the menu. Salads are crisp and fresh. Staff is awesome - pays attention and comes back often to make sure all is well. Large, open booths and great looking hand crafted tables and chairs. Comfortable, with a great view of the river.
