Good Food that's reasonably Priced

This place is nothing fancy but is a good mid range dining option. Great service and it's always good to see Lyle. Nice bar food atmosphere.

The food all tastes the same. I had a burger and the barbeque-neither were even average. Try Fred's Mesquite instead.

We ordered take out so have no experience with the service other than on the phone. The food was very good, still hot when we got it back to out hotel. They included lots of condiments and utensils. Yum!

In town visiting family. I really like the atmosphere, but the service was poor. The meal started out nice with a fresh salad, but entree took way too long(~35 min). So long that we tracked down a different waitress to ask about our dinner, then walked around checking out the decor only to have our table cleared off! The portion... More

We had to remind the host we were there so we could get waited on, when food started coming we had to find our own silverware, appetizer never showed up, one side dish was a no show as well. Turkey dinner was cold. Also ordered beef brisket that was delicious. I like all the antiques and the nostalgic feeling to... More

I had the country fried steak mashed potatos and gravy mmmmm.... very traditional comfort food. The service was ok.... our watier always seemed to be missing, making us wait quite a while just...

After enjoying meals and fun at the original Sparky's Garage in Dillon, it was exciting to have our own here in Butte. We've been enjoying meals here since it opened, and it is by far THE BEST restaurant to eat in Butte for casual and fun dining. Retro atmosphere, awesome servers (shout out to Sonja!!) reasonable prices and million dollar... More

Being from southern Nevada, we really enjoyed the casual and "retro 1950's/1960's" atmosphere, the great, reasonably priced food (I had the third rack of ribs/catfish combo plate that included two sides and a very yummy piece of cornbread with honey butter.). We also enjoyed the great lights of Butte down below. There is a real 1949 or 1950 green Chevrolet... More
