Great dining

We had supper with our friends on our first night in Great Falls and it was a fine choice. Our meals and the service were very good and we were surprised by the low cost of our bills when they arrived. Our only complaint would be the noise level which got louder when an entertainer started.....we... read more

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.

I was disappointed with Bert & Ernie's Tavern and Grill. The service was very confusing, we had about three different waiters. The food was average at best.

This place has been incredible from the start. The wait staff has always been excellent. The menu has always been high quality and fresh. My husband enjoys the beer menu. I do wish they had a more interesting non alcoholic selection. The prices have increased since the latest transfer of ownership, so it is a bit steep. The menu also... More

In from out of town. I can't say it was an impressive meal. Service was pretty slow. The food was not bad, but neither was it outstanding. Passable.

Family traveled to Montana State Fair and needed food to start off the fun. Heard that Bert and Ernie's had good Poutine. After being seated waitress brought out water, took drink orders and left for about 10 minutes. We received our drinks, placed orders and then waited about 40 minutes for our dinners. My Poutine was tasty, but the cheese... More

After the trolley tour of Great Falls, we were hungry so chose Bert and Ernie's and both of us enjoyed our lunches. My Crunchy chicken almond salad was plentiful and very good. Hubby's burger was cooked like he likes and his only complaint was the fries weren't as crispy as some others he's had. Service good as well. Not the... More

Bert and Ernie's is a great place to go for meeting friends and trying great local food. Their menu is extensive, and their wine & beverage selection is great too. I had the huckleberry wine which was amazing. I have tried different things in the past, but opted for the Hades burger this time and omg was it good! The... More

My wife and I ate here the other day while on vacation. Ryan was our server and very nice. Wife had fish and chips and I had the Reuben. Both selections were very good. We ordered poutine as an app. and while it was good it doesn't compare with the poutine found in Montreal. It was melted cheese instead of... More
