Description: The Gallatin River Lodge is the most spectacular place to dine in Bozeman...
The Gallatin River Lodge is the most spectacular place to dine in Bozeman and southwest Montana! With breath taking views, creative & classic cuisine, an outstanding wine selection and a full bar, the lodge guarantees a dining experience you will remember. Each aspect of dinner at the lodge is made from in-house ingredients; from our bread baked daily to Chef Craig's famous huckleberry ice cream. Our culinary team works exceptionally hard to bring an array of Montana products to your table. We serve locally sourced meats including select game items, poultry from local growers and offer a good selection of seafood sourced from west coast suppliers. We are so appreciative of our local farms, ranches & dairies that allow us to bring such quality products to our guests.Homemade creations continue throughout the restaurant, as all of our innovative cocktails are designed from scratch. You will find a handpicked selection of Montana made micro brews, a full selection of premier liquors, and outstanding wines to accompany your meal. Our wine list boasts unique selections from around the globe with more than 120 bottles to choose from. One of the most enjoyable aspects of a dinner at the GRL is our Montana landscape. Our dining rooms offer picturesque views of the Spanish Peaks, a table side trout pond, grazing dear, eagles & hawks and the occasional rainbow. Drinks and dessert always taste better when enjoyed in front of the fire in our great room. Hands down, we offer the best dining experience in the Gallatin County. The Lodge also offers an exceptional space for corporate dinner parties, weddings, retreats or any array of special events. We are highly flexible with arranging space, coordinating menus, and helping organize an entire event. Experience the best Montana cuisine in the area. We are open nightly and reservations are appreciated!

Wait staff very amatuer. Had the beef and could not chew it! $37 for six bites of beef and it was very chewy. Bad experience

We appreciate you taking the time to share your dining experience with us. Although it was not to the level at which we strive to provide, it is necessary to share both the good and the bad experiences at any establishment. The beef that we serve is from a local farmer, and should always be inspected prior to serving to... More

While staying at the Gallatin River Lodge, we ate breakfast and dinner at the Gallatin River Grill. The food was very good, locally sourced and high quality food that was expertly prepared. Highly recommended if you are staying at the lodge or planning a dinner for a special occasion.

This was a return visit to the Gallatin River Grill. We visited a couple of years ago and had a great time, great wine and great food. This time was the same. We heard good things about the new chef, but were concerned because the former chef was pretty darn good. We had nothing to worry about. First, the service... More

It has been a few years since my wife and I had the pleasure of dining at the Gallatin River Lodge. It was great then and even better now. The staff was good to work with but even overdid service a bit if that is possible. Great atmosphere and views. A hidden jem.

We really enjoyed our meal here. The staff was super friendly and the food was great. The location was away from all the crowds of Bozeman. The cocktails were well made and priced reasonably. Not a huge menu, but it all looked good. We will be back for sure.

Attentive staff in a lovely atmosphere. Food was delicious and generous portions. We started with the Pan seared scallops with Gorgonzola bleu cheese sauce, crostini and wilted spinach and they were fantastic. My husband had the chowder and I had a Cesar Salad, which was very authentic. The Roasted Hutterite Chicken was moist and flavorful. My husband enjoyed the tenderloin... More

I ate here on a Thursday evening, one other table occupied. Food was delicious. Wine was great with the fillet special. Service was naturally better than average with the lack of a crowd. I would definitely return.
