I Keep Coming Back

There's a lot to like here in spite of it being a chain. The wedge salad or the Caesar (with anchovies) is always reliable. I like the thin crust pizza. House wine is average but tolerable and not too expensive. The cobb salad is a great salad with lots of components artfully placed on the plate... read more

We love this place. Best pizza in town. Friendly staff and reasonable prices. They play a good variety of music too.

Just another example of a great idea turned into commissary pizza. If you want fast lunch beware they can be slow. Pizza used to be very good, I now go elsewhere.

We have been to Mackenzie Pizza Co. a couple of times since we moved to Great Falls. We have always had a good experience so it came as a rude awakening when we went last night and we didn't receive the service we were use to. It wasn't a busy night and when we got there only a few more... More

The MacKenzie River Pizza Company sits right along the river. This is a place you absolutely MUST go while in Montana. It originated in Bozeman, but they’re all over. I had a salad with weird crouton things…it looked like really fine granola. It was a bit too crunchy for me, so I’d skip that if you go. But the pizza….oh... More

This is a pretty reliable chain restaurant with a nice rustic atmosphere. The wine is served a the right temperature and they offer a decent selection of by the glass wine. The food was excellent. Our appetizer of quesadilla was very good , served with a great tasting salsa. We chose a thin crust pizza with pear and Gorgonzola cheese,... More

Makenzie River is a great place to grab a pizza, sandwich, Cowboy Nachos and a old beer... The food is great, the atmosphere is family friendly, and the beer is cold! In the summer there is nothing better that to sit outside on the patio and watch the river flow by.

MacKenzie River is one of Montana's finest. Yes it has been exported to other states, but it began in Bozeman. They offer a nice variety of pizzas, sandwiches, salads and local beer. This one in Great Falls has a nice view of the river.

After reading the reviews on TA it was obvious that this was a "not to miss" restaurant in Great Falls. We were not disappointed. The ham and pineapple pizza along with a Caesar salad were delicious. Washed down with an Angry Monk draught beer from their microbrewery and we had an awesome dining experience. I cannot wait until our next... More
