Cool Spot for Dining

My wife and I joined a group of friends here for dinner. The atmosphere at this place is very cool -- our table was in the bed of a vintage stake bed truck, the napkins were shop cloths -- and the food was very good and in large portions. The staff were very friendly and service was quick for a... read more

We fell upon this place at around 7 pm on a Saturday night. We were able to get right in and there were plenty of empty tables and abudant staff (mostly standing around talking to each other). The food was good, not overly large portions (but that is okay). The service however was really really slow. The waitstaff seemed very... More

Went there for dinner while in Butte on business. The place is much nicer inside than what the outside reveals. I get it, old building. It is what it is. We had Sydnie as our waitress. She was very kind and attentive. She helped me pick out a couple local micro brews that were very good. My mom really enjoyed... More

Was recommended to go her and what a treat. Had the best hamburger steak with onions and mushrooms. Our waitress was awesome. Her name was Cydnie p. And she was very attentive to us in making sure everything was good and drinks filled. Very cute place also. Food was great including dessert.

Was looking for something unique to Butte and thought this might fit the bill. We were seated by ourselves in a corner--felt like we were on "time out." Service was professional but not very warm. Pulled pork sandwich is the way to go. Other diners reported the ribs were fine and the "half off" special of garlic ribs was confusing--5... More

I spend a lot of time in Texas and know what brisket is supposed to taste like and Sparky's had some of the best I've had outside of the Lone Star state.

Decorated in auto memorabilia, this place is great just to tour! Sit at the table that's the bed of an old truck, or eat on the patio. The BBQ was great! I had a pulled pork sandwich and baked beans, and my wife had a BLT. Reasonable prices and great service. We normally have a quiet moment of thanks before... More

Great steaks and beer. The outside seating was scenic and beautiful. Walked thru old town to get there. Highly recommended by our desk clerk at hotel. He was right!

We were greeted and escorted to our table with a window view of the city. It was about 8:30 pm so it was quite a nice sight to see. We compared it to some of the other city views that we have seen and it was in the upper ranges. We ordered our beers and a wine for my lady... More
