Great food and proactive on allergy issues

Great food, great service. We have a child with severe allergies and the waitress was thoughtful, proactive, and helpful in that regard. After getting on the waitlist a waitress came around to take drink orders in the waiting area, a nice touch. Food was delicious. Waitress was very friendly... read more

The Ale Works looked like a nice place with a comfortable patio. But when we asked for an open corner table for two, we were told that our 3 pound Yorkie, on a leash and asleep in my wife's arms, was not welcome. (The waitress offered to allow us to tie his leash to a tree about 20 feet away.... More

Very, good food. Always busy, but not usually much of a wait. Outdoor seating in season. (A bit noisy inside...) Full bar.

We were passing thru Bozeman on our way to Yellowstone and were given a suggestion from hotel front desk to try MAW. Food was very good (bison pot stickers, seasonal risotto and chicken enchiladas) and service was prompt, friendly and efficient. We got there before 6 pm and were seated right away. We were glad we did because there was... More

Okay the elk slider is awesome!!! The Montana mule with willie's distillery honey moonshine is strong but good. The Madison River Brewing Company Salmon Fly Honey Rye beer is my new favorite! The girls for the first time ever both exploded with my cheeseburger is juicy. Really excited about the bison cheeseburger!!

This is a hopping place, and no reservations. We ate at the bar and got a seat right away. Excellent service and good food. Had a very pleasant evening.

Well, it's a place that families can go to but most of the people in there are divorcees. I have been a few times, they do have a good selection of beer but their prices just don't justify going during the non happy hour times. If you want local beers at the place they are made here in Bozeman try,... More

This is definitely a five star for pub food. I'd say it's the best Reuben sandwich I've eaten. We also got a bunch of apps and enjoyed them all. I appreciated the staff all seemed knowledgeable about the beer. Solid place to eat in Bozeman.

The variety of beers, the quality of food, and the efficiency of service made supper at Montana Ale enjoyable. The server recommended beers that both of us liked. My partner's Reuben as well as my black and blue burger were delicious. Although it seems like there were many people waiting when we arrived, we only waited about 10 minutes for... More

This is one of our go to restaurants. There is something for everyone, including a kids menu that goes beyond hot dogs & chicken fingers. The specials are always amazing and a staple is Pedro's pasta. A must stop when in Bozeman. But beware, they are always busy, always. So get there early, plan to wait or get there late... More
