Great find in Butte

We had an excellent 4 course meal with attentive service plus a delightful bottle of wine with generous tip for $90, which compares very favorably to a similar meal in Seattle.

The Uptown Cafe is a nice surprise for a small city in Montana. The restraint offers a nice array of choices and the wait staff are familiar with preparations, which is always a plus. The atmosphere is pleasant for a couples evening out yet sufficiently informal that stopping by for an unplanned "night out" is fine in that nearly any... More

This is such a surprise for Butte! I discovered this restaurant a year ago and returned months later for a "culinary weekend," of which this was the destination. This trip, it once again pleased with it's excellent food, multiple courses and amazing value. We started with an inexpensive Pinot Noir, wanting a slightly sweeter but lighter wine. An excellent value... More

We were passing thru Butte and arrived just after the restaurant opened for the evening. It's a fairly "fancy" restaurant, but as we were very early our casual dress was OK. Very good service and exquisitely prepared and presented food. On the expensive side, but reasonable prices for the quality of food and ambiance provided. We would certainly return if... More

Staff friendly and helpful. Rather odd set up of cafeteria style serving during lunch. Quantities were certainly ample, but although overwhelmed by volume, the quality was just okay. Noodles with wienerschnitzel is weird, and having more than I could eat did not make it any better.

Beef wellington is to die for. Mexican Halibut the best. Soups are all made from scratch. Great atmosphere.

My daughter and I went here for lunch our first day in Butte on the recommendation of an acquaintance. It's a cute little place with cafeteria-style service. The food was good, but it was pricey!

Was eating highway cafe food for 2 days, it is way better and like fine dining at Uptown. Tried the duck and ravioli dinner, come with appetiser and salad. Generous pricing, roughly 20 usd per person but top quality.
