Our Favorite Restaurant

In my opinion Montana Ale Works has the best combination of food beer, and atmosphere in town. The down side is that they are very popular and you frequently have to wait for a table. We addressed that by going late; after 9:00 P.M. and we did NOT have to wait. Their entrée selections are not... read more

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Bozeman. The bar area can be noisy but it's full of life. There's a quieter room for having a pleasant dinner. Interesting menu and appetizers. Great beer selection.

This bar/restaurant is always busy! The bar carries domestic, foreign and local beers. There are pool tables and sports TV's. The menu is versatile and has daily specials. The servers are always friendly. It's a historical railroad building and it's fun for couples, families, friends--everybody.

The food is pretty good here. There is not a huge menu so choices are limited. This is a great place for people who need gluten free options. They even have a great selection of gluten free beers. The steak sandwich is a great price and a great little meal. The atmosphere is pretty noisy so I would not recommend... More

This little gem has some of the best food we have had in awhile. The food was trendy, and a great selection. We really could not believe the quality and types of food on the menu. We will return, and the dinner we had was better then some of the michelin star restaurants we have eaten in.

The Ale Works is one of our favorite places in Bozeman. The food is consistently good and the prices are moderate. The many beer offerings just add another layer of wonderfulness to this place! I would highly recommend the Ale Works!
