We had the buffet, so the price was great for the quantity. The waitress was nice and good. Seemed to be popular.

Very down home restaurant with simple meals. Ribs were super tender and delicious. Loved their fried bread too!

Yum! I could probably end my review there, but Trip Advisor says I have to type at least 100 characters! Locals invited us to dinner here (probably wouldn't have known about it or gone if not for them) but it was delicious! Home cooked "southern" menu is how I would describe it. Best fried chicken and ribs I have had... More

So here we go again with my Montana series of ratings. We were told by many locals that the "Back Room" was an excellent place to eat and had great service. Well, my rating swings both ways.. The food was excellent, I had the baby back ribs which were prolly the best ribs I have ever had, but as far... More

We ordered the "Broasted Chicken"...it was tasty. Seems like everyone heads for the buffet which includes a lot of what is on the menu...ribs, chicken...but we were not that hungry. The place was pretty packed, so if you are looking for a romantic dinner...not the place to go.

We try to stop at supper clubs whenever we take road trips. We have stopped at the nite owl before. This is a classical dining experience. The food is very good and you gets tons of it. We shared the rib sampler it was perfect. We'll prepared, nice presentation, super club atmosphere, and they call you hon.

After seeing many positive reviews, we were excited to try this restaurant, even after waiting for 30 minutes. Unfortunately, the meats were dry, the veggies overcooked, and the kitchen slow. I'd just rather get a fastfood hamburger.

My husband and I finally made it for dinner at a decent hour!! We ordered ribs and chicken combos. I had the country ribs and fried chicken and my husband had the spare ribs and fried chicken-- portions so big we could not finish! The fry bread is unique and tasty too! I wish I had another night to visit... More

We had breakfast here and a late dinner here another night while visiting the area. For breakfast, I had the owl breakfast sandwich-- it was huge and very filling along with the hash browns! My husband had a huge ham and cheese omelet and lived his food as well!! On our late dinner visit I had the grilled meatloaf and... More
