For a town Helena's size, this is an awesome restaurant. The mussels were flown in today, the pasta handmade at the restaurant, and local draft beer/wine specials available. It was a great meal in a lovely old building.

Restaurant has good pasta, nice cream sauces for the pasta and also good selection of seafood. The prices are a bit high, especially for Helena, but the food is good and you don't mind paying for it. This restaurant doesn't take reservations and so when we arrived at 6:30 on a Wed night, we had to wait at the bar... More

It wants to be a great restaurant but it's not quite there yet. The Tucson chicken was bland and certainly not what I had in Italy. The filet was dry and a bit overcooked. The wine list is impressive on paper but expensive.

For old times sake we had a later evening dinner at an old friend-On Broadway! After wandering there from the 5-Alive event at the Library. We shared an entree and had some beer and were made very welcome by the staff. The homemade pasta noodles were great. We were in town on business and don't come to Helena often but... More

Monday night in Helena, where to eat? On Broadway is a good choice! Located in downtown, a block off of the main pedestrian walkway, On Broadway is found in an old, historic building. With a decent amount of floor space, plus an upper level that holds 7 extra tables, the place was sold out, even on Monday! While serving primarily... More

When we lived in Helena, we always loved On Broadway, and we still try to eat there once a year at least. The food and service are top-notch, and the ambience is special, not something you'd expect to find in a small town. If you want a memorable meal, be sure to include On Broadway during your visit.

Many menu choices. Can be a little pricey. They do not take reservations, but our wait on a Friday night was minimal. Our waiter Shawn was outstanding! Definitely try the Shrimp, Scallops, and Pancetta pasta dish....loaded with veggies and a parmesan cream sauce. Superb!

If you're looking for fine dining this is one of the options you have. The meals are great, as is the atmosphere. They do not take reservations, which is a down side. Depending on your outlook, compared to some restaurants they are a bit pricey, but worth it in the long run. The service is excellent, staff is friendly. They... More
