This restaurant is one of our favorites in Great Falls. The food is generally good and reasonably priced. It can get noisy, but we usually have a good experience here.

Bar and grill atmosphere pleasant. It was out of routine menu items, like short ribs and a listed ale beer. Salad served was not as ordered. Standard fare of pork and salmon were acceptable. The hamburgers at the adjoining table looked outstanding. We wished we would have ordered.

This is the most disappointing food experience I've had in a long time. We saw the full page ad and had all four in our party salivating for a good meal... the wait was stated at 35 minutes to be seated so we went to the bar. 3 of us had locally brewed beer and my girlfriend ordered a $13... More

Janet runs a great restaurant featuring creative dishes as well as the standards. Her poutine is outstandingly addictive and the Cajun Fowl Burger remains one of our favorites. B&E's has an excellent wine list and features many local micro brews as Janet strives to source locally while incorporating farmers market goods when available. The restaurant is casual and inviting, well... More

A local institution, recently reinvented. Great food, locally sourced where possible. Menu changes with seasons. Awesome beer selection, kid's meals actually include vegetables! Frequent live music

We started with the pork won ton tacos. They sure load them up, so it was pretty messy, but our waitress had brought us extra napkins ahead of time. I thought they were okay, my husband thought they were quite good. He especially enjoyed the mango salsa and the depth of flavor it provided. He ordered a stuffed burger which... More
