Great little spot

Better than bar food or an average restaurant. Steaks, burgers, salads fish. Full bar. The appetizers were delicious, and they even had a vegetable, cheese and meat tray. The flatbread with artichoke was amazing too. Good experience, call ahead for reservations on a Friday or Saturday night though... read more

I've been here 3 times in 2 years (I don't live in the area), but I'd definitely go back again if I'm ever in Great Falls again. I've always enjoyed my food here. The atmosphere is also really nice and cozy.

A high quality, diverse menu with local meats and produce. Burger selection is unique and amazing. Food is delicious for a bar type atmosphere as well as fine dining.

The Wagyu burger is amazing! Also try their cheese plate - delicious! This place is definitely more unique than Mackenzie River and should be #1! This is our favorite place for date night.

This is not my first visit and not sure if it's my first review. I can't recall a bad experience at Bert and Ernies. This time I had the rueben and it was great. My only complaint is the restaraunt was so cold that I had to have my coat wrapped around me the entire visit. Yes, it is January... More

We had a group of 5 for a casual business lunch and it was the perfect place. Overall casual but still very nice. They had a good selection on their menu to meet everyone's taste. Overall the portion size was good and the meals arrived quickly.

My husband and I eat here frequently when we're in town. We love the menu, which has something for everyone, including great sandwhiches, burgers, and soups and salads. I love that they feature local farmers with their menu as well. It's a great casual place with a really good menu and fun atmosphere.

We both had burgers and they were ok, not worth the price. Staff could have paid a bit more attention. Facility was clean, nice atmosphere, place has potential!

Met a friend for lunch here for her birthday lunch a couple of weeks ago. She had a chicken Caesar salad, and I had clam chowder, salad, and hot tea. What a vast improvement in service and quality since my last visit about a year ago. My salad was fresh and crispy, with a variety of ingredients. The soup was... More
