The food here is consistently good and sometimes it's great. I really wish it wasn't so loud. Maybe I'm just getting old because if I was 20ish it would rock. Service is good and I love the fact that they have gluten free fries. Good kids menu with options that aren't fried. Food allergy friendly... read more

Awesome food and atmosphere! We went twice over our 7 day stay on Bozeman. Great burgers and the parmesan fries were the best!

We've eaten here in the past and been quite happy, but last night we both ordered fish dishes (fish tacos and fish & chips), and neither was very good. The "Alaskan cod" was tilapia, at best, thin, tough and way overbreaded and greasy. My husband said the fish in his tacos could have been fresher. We'll go back, since we've... More

Great service and really good food. No reservations on Fri/Sat. However, the iPad/text seating system was quite efficient. Wait until 8pm and you won't wait long. The room was energetic, but not so loud you couldn't talk. Nowhere to really hang a coat though. Duck wonton appetizers were enjoyed by all.

We had dinner here on our last night in town. While the ambiance was more bar/pool hall like then restaurant it was a nice way to end the trip. We both bison (each prepared differently) which was fantastic and the pepper parmesan fries were great. Our server was on top of it never left with any empty water glass. If... More

Very good place. Renovated train station is a cool atmosphere. The french onion soup is the bomb.com and the huge beer selection is exceptional.

99% of the beers are Montana brews, and they also had a distillery tasting going on during our visit. The hostess was very nice! The food was excellent and a fair price for what we got. The bartenders were very friendly and helpful, and offered suggestions based on what we were drinking at eating. W great experience all around!

This is a fun spot for dinner. A remodeled railroad warehouse with a well stocked bar and lots of pool tables. Great place for burgers. The rest of the menu is usually good but inconsistent. Very family friendly; perfect for large groups of varied ages and tastes. No reservations and often crowded.

Stopped in Ale Works last week while in Bozeman. We sat at the bar and Adriane was our bartender. She gave us exceptional service. We were greeted right away and had drinks in front of us seconds later. The beer selection was endless. We were only going to stay for one beer and wings, but enjoyed Adriane's great service, personality,... More

We came on a Sunday night after skiing all day. It was busy, we sat in a booth area surrounded by Windows. Our server JULES was the best. He didn't disappoint with anything. Kept our drinks coming, appetizers and food came at perfect times. My son had a kids steak. He could cut it with a fork, that's tender!! We... More
