We had a large group dinner at the Uptown Cafe and they were so go to work with us and take great care of us. Large groups can be tricky making sure that service is of quality, quick, and the meals come out hot. Well the Uptown Cafe did themselves proud and we were the lucky recipients of their great...

Butte is a beautiful town, but I did not expect much in the way of restaurants. While the old building is nice, it is not to excite. The dinning room is clean and neat, but I would not go there for the atmosphere, though if you are in Butte, I would still suggest you go to this restaurant. The early... More

Best food and service in Butte, central downtown location. If you only have time for one meal, this is a must.

The good part first, fantastic pork rib, juicy inside and well grilled outside. The beef on the otherhand was not what it advertised. Firstly, it is not grilled. Not only did it not have any griil marks, it just did not showed any other signatures of a grilled piece of beef! To be fair, it was supposedly Cajun spiced and... More

We invite friends and eat here every time we are in Butte. The food is always excellent and the wait staff is always outstanding. They know their "stuff".

This was highly recommended so the meal was a let-down. Pleasant but ordinary. Wait staff tried hard!

So, when I think of Butte, I think pasties and fried bar food. When my husband told me there was a fine dining restaurant in Butte, I thought someone was pulling his leg... again. He told me this place was apparently great so we should check it out. We looked on TripAdvisor and liked what we read. Then we went... More

Even with white linen tablecloths and cloth napkins, don't worry if you're wearing shorts and a tee in this nice restaurant. We dined early enough not to need a reservation, and were seated promptly. Really enjoyed the ravioli, and the clams casino were delish. The best thing on the menu -- from my perspective -- was the fresh tomato appetizer:... More

A last minute trip to Butte, I quickly scanned Trip Advisor before we left for which restaurant was rated #1 in Butte. "Uptown Cafe" was listed. I didn't even think to look for directions. Easily found, the trip was worth it! Staff was very attentive to gluten-free and our need for a quick meal. It's always iffy to find seafood... More

This restaurant in downtown Butte was absolutely fantastic. The food was to die for. I can't believe a restaurant of this quality is in Butte, Montana?! Fining dining quality food and UNBELIEVABLE value for your dollar. I had a pork dish that was on their specials menu and it was by far the best pork I've ever eaten in my... More
