Interesting Atmosphere

Nice on vacation with family. We were walking around town and asked a local for a lunch recommendation. This was a nice and unusual place with good food. Plus its an interesting western town.

We go to Sparky's quite often because it's consistently good. The servers have been friendly and I haven't had a negative experience yet. The decor is similar to Famous Daves, but instead of outdoorsy flair on the walls, they have old auto signs and adverts. This is the second Sparky's Garage that I know of, the original being in Dillon,... More

Regretfully only one night passing through Butte and found Sparky's on Trip Advisor. Great little place. Decorated like an old turn-of-the-century garage in an old brick building and on a cold snowy January night, it was warm and welcoming for my wife and I. Great menu! Had trouble deciding, but Jessica was a great server. My wife had the combo... More

We popped in after a long afternoon of swimming at Fairmont hot springs famished and ready for some good food. Sparky's Garage didn't disappoint. Friendly staff and great service by our server Vicky. The catfish and brisket were excellent and the pulled pork was tasty. (Really I think any of their bbq dishes would be delish). The cornbread...wow! It's served... More

This restaurant is, in my opinion, down around 7th ranking on TripAdvisor for Butte, but it should be #1 or very close to it. It's in the historical part of town, was previously a garage, and what they have done to the interior is not only unique but interesting and refreshing. The 50's Chev pickup truck with a table and...

The place has great things to look at on the walls, and consistently good food. Evening views to the South are good to from this location. I would try the one in Dillon next time we are there!
