This was by far an amazing dining experience. You HAVE to know how to get here! This place is remotely located but so worth the effort to travel to. We were fortunate to have a warm evening and the French doors to the the dining room were wide open with a gentle breeze blowing. It was heavenly as we looked... More

My girlfriend and I dined here and stayed at the lodge while visiting friends (who recommended them) over Thanksgiving break. We had dinner two evenings and everything was incredible. The chef specials both nights were creative and delicious! The friendly staff, warm ambiance and cozy fireplace are all reasons we will return. If you stay overnight at the lodge you... More

Ate here twice and loved both meals. A quiet and beautiful spot located at the quaint Gallatin River Lodge. The service was excellent, the food was beautifully presented and really good. I would highly recommend this place if you are passing through Bozeman.

We've stayed in Bozeman many times but this was out first time at the Gallatin River Grill. Friends have stayed at the Inn itself for fly fishing and highly praised both the accommodations and the food. The inn is situated along the Gallatin river on extensive grounds off a dirt road west of Bozeman proper, in a residential area of... More

Thsi is a wonderful place, not only the resaurant, the entire place. Beautiful grounds with wild animals on property. When we were there last week at dust there were dear, rabiits and a owl in view. The service is as good as the food. A high $30.00 corkage fee, but the wine list is excellent. No need to bring your... More

We have stayed at the Gallatin River Inn several times as were are returning from a vacation in Yellowstone National Park (the inn is only a few miles from Bozeman airport).

My wife and I made a reservation for dinner for our 15th wedding anniversary. When I called the day before around 2PM I stated, "Hello, I'm calling to make a reservation for tomorrow night.
