Fun place for drinks

After a day of fly fishing on the Madison, we stopped here for a few drinks. The atmosphere is very relaxed and the customers even bring their dogs to the bar! You could see all types of people ... the locals, the elderly, bikers, professionals, and the fishing guides. Good drinks. Try the... read more

Our waiter didn't greet us for 15 minutes. He forgot what my mom ordered and then the food took so long that he ended up giving us greasy chips to tide us over. My soup was slopped into a cup with no bread even though it was on the menu. He ended up just taking my mom's dinner off the... More

After a visit to the Lewis and Clark caverns, we decided to drive back to Bozeman by way Ennis Montana. We decided to stop in and have a bite to eat at the gravel bar. They had a nice selection of micro brew beers. But I have to say that the catfish poor boy sandwich was absolutely delicious. It's definitely... More

Great food and live entertainment! I had a blackened catfish po-boy with fries and a cold beer. There was a guitarist singing and lots of locals enjoying the evening. They also have a restaurant adjoining the bar/grill for family meals.

Travelling through Ennis on a Sunday evening, this was the only place we could find open. The service was good, considering how busy they were. The food was great.

My husband & I each had the blackened catfish poboy & it was delicious. Very fresh tasting. The fries were really good skin on kind, great flavor & they had malt vinegar for them, which not everybody has. Outside dinning was great & the friendly dog pepper from next door came & greeted everyone. Service was good even though the... More

The menu was full of Montana style foods and plenty of it. I had the BBQ brisket which was awesome. Good selection of Montana brews to choose from. Good service, nice local vibe

We had to wait almost 15 minutes until we were first approached with menus and drink orders. Waiter was extremely unfriendly though promptly did get our drinks and food came out in a timely manner. The food I felt was very good (burgers and fish). If you are in a hurry, I would not recommend coming here, if you are... More

The owner of the Gravel G bar happened to be lending a hand behind the bar for the moment. I asked Amy for something different with vodka. Wow! Amy told me about a vodka she infused with organic garlic and several spices to be used with Bloody Mary drinks. OMG! Yummy. I had the best Bloody Mary drink with Amy's... More
