I think I was reading the menu wrong. $20 for a 22 oz Full Sail beer! I apologize for this review if I was reading the menu wrong but since I know my beer that would be ridiculous to pay. If anyone would like to correct me on this I would appreciate the input.

I love the fact that so much of their food is local. Sometimes a little crowded and noisy but definitiely worth it. Appetizer happy hour is a great plus too.

The food was good, but the price was a little unreasonable for the quantity. The service was great especially considering how busy the restaurant was. I wish it was not as loud as it was, it was difficult for us to have a conversation with our relatives. Overall, this was a good restaurant and we will come back.

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
