Best breakfast in the area---this is where the locals come and eat! Great food with a very good value! This is an old time diner style cafe with beautiful wood furniture and bar. I highly recommend this local spot.

Over all the food was very very good. The service was friendly and efficient. HOWEVER, I have been there 4 times and 3 of those 4 times I had to listen to a wait staff, dark haired woman, yell at the kitchen staff, degrade the kitchen staff, come out to the dinning area and openly mock how helpless the "idiots"...

Good, fresh food. Bacon was nice and thick and I really enjoyed the cottage potatoes -- just plain potatoes but nice & crispy. Service was very good too. The owner was very attentive & made sure we were happy customers.

Gamers has been a staple in Butte for decades. The staff always makes you feel welcome and the service is GREAT! I ate there 3 times on my visit this year and Paul and his family have the best breakfast and lunch in town. The charming diner/soda fountain decor is awesome. Great food excellent value. Highly recommend.

Loved the ambiance. The staff was friendly. However, service was not great. I only write this as a motivation to make changes. Staff didn't seem to know how to multi task, which is a must in the restaurant business. Maybe we just picked an off day. They did say they had been busy.............but. Will give them another try, but was... More

When I'm traveling I always try to use a local business for food. This little eclectic restaurant in downtown Butte is the perfect example of what I look for. We went there for breakfast 2 days in a row during the Montana Free Folk Festival, both times about 9 am on a saturday & sunday, & there was 3 of... More

Good basic fare with plenty of choices sandwiches, breakfast items, some entrees and a local favorite pasty which the miners would take with them from home. Wonderful friendly service and the rear of the restuarant had an old fashion look to it.

First off, this shares space with a sad little casino so be aware. Next up, only beer was Coors and Coors Light (or was it Bud and Bud Light?), so don't expect microbrewery or even decent beer here. Then, we were told they were out of pasties (meat and potatoes in a dough pie) and that their "world famous" pot... More

While in Butte we had a very large group (30+) and they arranged for us to have a back room for breakfast. We had reserved the room for 2 days, but we were so taken by the place that we returned for 2 more days. I can't say enough nice things about the staff. They were friendly and very efficient....
