Dinner with mood music

Stopped in thinking this was just a bar with bay food and was surprised to find a seven piece band playing music. We just had appetizers and drinks but from what we saw the dinner portions are huge. I would go back again

Located downtown, this was a very pleasant surprise. The service, atmosphere and food were all great. Even though it was crowded, it was not noisy. Very good value. I would definately visit them again.

Went her for our anniversary. Seems overrated to me, service was not too attentive (have to flag down server to ask for things, water not refilled, etc), and the place echos and gets load. I got a burger that was good but nothing to write home about. My wife's pasta was really bland; not good when I can taste-test her... More

On our way from Wisconsin to Glacier National Park, we spent an evening in Great Falls, MT. As a family of four with adult children, we were looking for great food and service, in addition to unique atmosphere.

The food here lives up to its reviews. Awesome flavors. The tomato bisque and broccoli cheese soups were soo yummy! The mogyu steak was delicious as well as the pasta Italia dish. Big portions and very well priced, go check it out yourself!!

This restaurant was walking distance to our hotel (Econolodge, don't stay there). Anyways, our group walked down one block and across the street. This place was really nice. Our group got our own little room, which was really nice. Our server was fun, friendly and didn't ignore us. The menu choices was so vast, it was hard to make a... More

Stopped here after driving from Canada, food was really good and the service good. We didn't search it out, just stumbled upon this place and were happy with it being our first Montana meal. Would recommend and go back.

Have and inside (family) reason that I had to stop here after seeing the name of the restaurant. Burger was way over cooked but still not bad tasting. Service was very good but could have been a bit more attentive towards the customers rather talking among themselves. Reasonable prices.
