We enjoyed seeing the art and talking with an artist about her work. The outside dining area was so nice, we chose that because we had a toddler with us. The service was excellent and so was the food. My husband had the pork chop which was delicious but huge.

This is a large building, with different rooms. There are works of many different local artists here, and also a restaurant. In one of the halls there is a converted cigarette machine. You can purchase local artwork that comes in the size of a cigarette pack directly from the machine, It's very unique. If you like to purchase local artwork,... More

Interesting artist community. We arrive late in the afternoon and didn't get to see everything. Nice selection of paintings and crafts for sale by the resident artists. Decent prices.

If you are looking for great art work, from jewelry to paintings to sculptures, look no further than the Emerson. Not only will you find local artists, you will also find a fabulous restaurant - Emerson Grill, winter farmer market every Saturday and many classes to inspire the artist in you! Do not miss the opportunity to stop by the... More

We had a great meal, excellent food, wonderful staff, interesting decor. I would definitely return. My friend had the risoto and I had sole draped over hot potato salad. One other guest had a great pizza shaped like a paddle, not your normal round pie. We all left satisfied.

To be clear, my review is for the Emerson Grill, not the cultural center (which was closed at dinner time). The Emerson Grill serves gourmet food in a warm, casual environment. The good could have come from a restaurant in Washington D.C. or San Francisco - it was an unexpected pleasure to find in Bozeman MT!

This was my second visit in ten years. While I visited they had an event happening in the field next door and sponsored a garden tour on the weekend. What a vibrant part of the community!

We went to dine at the Emerson Grill, not knowing it was located in a large artistic cultural center. The food at the Emerson Grill was the best meal of our trip. They know how to make fresh entrees from local ingredients, very tasty Italian food. After dinner we enjoyed walking through the galleries and seeing works of emerging artists.

Just a few blocks from downtown and with convenient parking, the Emerson Cultural Center is a collection of many artists' studios, coops and exhibit spaces. The quality of their work is quite high. This is well worth a visit.

In addition to art galleries and miscellaneous special attractions, the Emerson (an old renovated school) hosts amazing music, if you know how to look for it. I want to thank them for great Wilco, Bob Wier, and other bands in an intimate but comfortable venue. Beverages and excellent dining (see Emerson Grill) are also right there for before or during....
