Fun, casual, and GOOD food

One of our favorite go-to places. Lots of choices. Have never had a bad meal. Outdoor dining on Main St. is an option and fun. But there is also indoor dining. Serves local micro brewery beers.

Well I am a local. They have a great outdoor seating area and good burgers. As with the rest of this town, everything is overpriced for the trust fund babies and all of the stars from Los Angeles, it's crazy here. So, if you are gonna drop 20 bucks for a bison burger, go to Ted's Montana Grill (it pains... More

My daughter was seeking comfort food the night we ate here and went for a grilled cheese and tomato basil soup. It was the best tomato soup either of us had ever had! The service was great too.

We have eaten here many times when visiting. Good selection of beers and great food. It is always a hard choice, but you can't go wrong.

Walked the shops of bozeman and decided on this restaurant based on reviews and they allowed dogs to the tables on the patio. My wife and I found the food to be delicious and the staff was very nice and got a water bowl for our lab. Recommend the outside patio on a cool pleasant day would be ideal.

We stopped here for a couple hours on a sunny afternoon for a few happy hour beers. They had a great selection of local microbrews and the waitstaff was very friendly. The outdoor seating area was great and we really enjoyed our time in Bozeman. Fun place to go have a late lunch and chill. Very laid back atmosphere on... More

This place was recommended to us by some other visitors to Bozeman. Good venue with a large outside dining area but service was pretty ordinary. Drinks orders were fine but the waitress forgot part of our food order. When it did arrive it was good and plentiful, so shame the service let them down.

A reclaimed garage/ gas station is the site of this fun restaurant. It would be a good place to bring the kids. Lots of car grills to look at. License plate menus adorn the tables. The soup is very good. I had a great burger, buddies had a Bison burger and salad respectfully. Attentive servers. I would drive in for... More

Very nice place for lunch. It was beautiful day and was great to sit outside and visit with friends. There is a play area for kids which was great for out 2 yr. old. The food was very good. The Buffalo Burger was cooked to perfection. The baby back ribs were cooked well, but I was not a big fan... More

For burgers and beer and yummy soup, this is a must stop. A real Bozeman favorite! This restaurant used to be a real auto filling station and the decor follows that theme. weather permitting, most diners sit outside but there is also inside seating and a soup kitchen that offers a rotating selection of home cooked soup with lots of...
