I have lived in Southern California for almost fifty years, and each and every time I go to visit Butte, LYDIA'S is the #1 place to have a fine meal. Having grown up in the Butte/Anaconda area of Montana, LYDIA'S was always THE place my parents would take us for a special dinner. My parents were friends with the original... More

When I moved back to Butte, I couldn't wait to go to dinner at Lydias. I remembered it as being great place, when I went there with my parents and on special occassions. It was not at all like it used to be.The food was over priced and tasteless. It was so dark, that I could hardly see what I... More

Throwback to the 1950s and 1960s where the dinner comes with appetizers, salad, two or three sides, entree and dessert [best Spumoni I have had in years]. Food is bland but plentiful and its an interesting cultural experience.

Located on the edge of Butte, we expected a more modern facility. Parking was convenient, but we found the interior dark and possibly moldy. Maybe that's what Lydia was going for, but we found it less than inviting. The appetizers and salads and sides are standard, so it is waiting for you when you are seated. A novel process, but...

The service was exceptional. The food delicious and served as ordered. The side dishes of ravioli, spaghetti, peppers, beets (yum), cheese & salami, scallions and sweet potato salad make for a very interesting meal. All the dishes are refillable at no cost. There is no reason to go away hungry.

Although the Uptown Cafe is more sophisticated cuisine, Lydia's is very good, especially the Italian dishes. Excellent salad and large portions, very well cooked and presented. The wait staff is attentive and well meaning and it's a good value.

we had the chicken and halibit - both very good. I love you get anchovies with your cesaer salad. You get salad, relish tray, spagetti (love the white spaghetti), salami and cheese, peppers, green onions, beets and then dessert. Very good meal and great prices.

The staff were very professional and friendly. We brought family who were visiting from North Carolina to dinner to Lydia's. This is absolutely the worst dinner I have ever had. It was embarrassing to subject our family to such a pathetic dining experience The salad was already at the table when we arrived. The sweet potato salad was already starting... More
