This is an attractive restaurant centrally located in downtown Great Falls. Sitting on a corner, the light filled interior imparts a warm welcome. We snuggled up to the bar, ordered some appetizers, and sampled a couple of local brews. Friendly staff offered suggestions and opinions about our proposed itinerary, as diners continued to fill the available booths and tables. Good... More

Great meals around the table. Beer selection slightly sparse. Live music made it tough to have a conversation. At the end of the day next time I'm in town I will be back, food talks.

This is a relaxing place, nice atmosphere. The servers are friendly. Menu has a good variety. The thin home made chips are delicious. Will do back again.

This is one if the only real good restaurants in great falls and as an added plus it's not on 10th ave. I've eaten here 5 times with only one half-disappointing meal. The only bad one was when they were slammed and the server was great about it.

Bert and Ernie's is by far my favorite restaurant in town. It has a great atmosphere and is a very relaxing place to hang out. The food is delicious with a good variety of options. The servers are all very friendly and make you feel welcome. Saturday nights there is even live music. It's a must visit when in town!

We love this downtown spot for its comfort foods, nice French onion soup, sandwiches, ribs and poutine, the Canadian national snack.

We frequent Bert & Ernie's. Food's good. Like the live music. But, on my last few visits, ordering my usual glass of wine, I've noticed the glass I'm served is only half full. Still charging the same. Now on this last visit, same thing. Half a glass. BUT, as I was sitting at the bar, I noticed that some glasses... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us on trip advisor. We have come up with a new system of pouring our wines so we are hoping this helps solve the inconsistent pouring issues. Thank you for bringing that to my attention. As for the beers all of our glasses are 16 oz. Most breweries supply the pints for... More
