Would give it a 3.5

Highly recommended by local friend, we had dinner there. Portions were large and service was pretty good. However, food was just so-so, nothing special. Menu selection was good and place was clean. Just wish the food had a bit more style and taste.

Borries is a tradition in my family. It is where we spend our special occasions. The food is great and reasonably priced. We went recently and I had steamed prawns with half and half. Dinner included six prawns, baked potato, ravioli and spaghetti, soup and salad. The sauce is different, more of a gravy. It is delicious. The prawns were... More

I callled ahead for chicken, take-out, as I was "home alone" on a Friday night. January 30, 2014. I sat at the bar, gavethem my name and asked for a glass of wine. I then was treated to a sideshow of VERY unimpressive stature. The bar staff was so self absorbed and CLUELESS as to running a bar. I was... More

Was referred by a friend to try out Borrie's. Went once, will not go back. Food was lacking taste, cold and the wait staff was very detached from being of service.

We ate at Borrie's knowing it wouldn't be anything cutting-edge, but we wanted to try one of the old-line places in Black Eagle. Pros: wine/beer selection was decent and fairly priced. The old-fashioned interior was charming and well-maintained & staffed. Our group of five had salads, spaghetti, and steak. The green salads were better than expected, with exception that the...

To get a feel for any city's character, wise travelers search out popular local eateries. Borrie's is such a place for road warriors finding themselves in Great Falls. The restaurant has been here since 1938. Don't skip the bar, a long one with colorful residents at the ready for engaging chit chat. Every kind of cuisine is served here --... More
