First the place was too noisy. Had to shout to be heard, music too loud and sounded like the speakers were blown. Son-n-law had to wait 20 minutes after ordering beer just to find out they were out of it. The beer I wanted was $24 for a 22 ounce beer. Seriously? A Big Sky brewery beer that I could... More

You can count on quality at the Bittercreek Alehouse. For lunch or late night, it's always well-attended and fun. Casual atmosphere and great food. I love the grilled kale caesar salad! Pizza is great, too.

Ambiance Bittercreek has done two remodels in the last few years. The first was not so good, and I started avoiding the place. But they did a second remodel, and once again made it a great place for a weekend lunch watching sports ion the big screens. Seating is comfortable, though can be somewhat tight. The bar (where I always... More

I used to love this place. It was my go to for good food. They remodeled not too long ago, but the food is still overpriced for what you get. The menu is a little limited for the what they claim to be. Last time I was there I bought poutine, and it was all fries and bland gravy, with... More

This is a bew pub but with an extensive selection of locally made ales and beers for tasting, plus a nice selection of meals. I had a lamb dish that was well done, not "gamy" tasting at all, and served with some excellent sides. Sat on the outdoor sidewalk and enjoyed people watching while I sipped the brews. Very pleasant... More

My husband and I took a guest from out of town for dinner. We were told to seat ourselves, and didn't have to wait too long for a server. The speed of service went downhill quickly from there. Waited almost 10 minutes for drinks (2 beers and a lemonade) and it was a different server who brought those out to... More

Had a sandwich and cup of soup for a quick lunch, the potato chowder was the best i have ever had, Packed with potato, corn and carrots and the broth wasnt thick like some chowders can be. The waitress was fantastic. Great place and would recommend it to beer drinkers as well as the beers available were impressive.

We always get great food, service and drinks. Not a place to take kids but great with friends and date night. Usually very busy, so go when you have time to have some drinks and enjoy!
