Tasty Burgers and local microbrews

Arrived in town and went over to the Windbag as soon as we checked in. We ordered local beers and they were very good. Most of us in the group ordered burgers of some kind. I had the teriyaki burger. I enjoyed it. The service was the best and helped make our dining so much better. The... read more

Looking for a good steak dinner in a town that goes to bed early, and discovered this local hangout. It used to be a bordello, and the history makes it a fun place to be. The food makes it a great place to be. Service was excellent, and the servings are huge. I ordered the prime rib sandwich, blackened, and... More

If you're in the market for red meat, this will be one of your best bets in Helena. My wife ordered the filet and I the prime rib. Both were delicious. Really enjoyed the service as well. Though I won't knock any stars off this review, I do find it odd that a restaurant with "saloon" atmosphere does not serve... More

This restaurant has an extensive menu. It's burgers to fine dining. We enjoyed their wine and beer selection as well as a filet and encrusted halibut. Scrumptious parmesan mashed potatoes. Great side salad.

Our group of seven ate here during our stay in Helena. Five adults and two kids age 12 & 5. The food was wonderful and everything was a hit. The major standouts were the Club sandwich and the fish sandwich. Delicious fries and onion rings. The meals are gigantic! You will not walk away hungry. The service was very friendly.... More

Returned home for family issues and it was so nice to be able to come to this familiar place for a quiet evening of remembering past events over wine and dinner with an old friend.

We have been pretty disappointed with the food fare and finding a good restaurant in Helena. One of my friends told me about The Windbag so we decided to try it. It is my new favorite. My husband had a filet which was so good and I had the coconut shrimp. It was absolutely dee-lish! Skye was our waitress and... More

I had a wonderful prime rib, ate it at the bar. I was treated very kindly by the bartender. He set me up with a great desert that I took to go.

I had heard that that is place had good burgers, so stuck with that. Mine was fine. The fries were hot and fresh, if not crispy. It was so dark in the dining part of the restaurant where they had seated me, that I could hardly see....but, they greeted me with a warm welcome when I arrived. All in all,... More

First they have a piece of paper posted by the door with their hours and food options. Certain hours with full menu and other hours with bar menu, I had to check my watch to see if there was food at 7;00 pm. From my table I could see everyone that entered did the same thing. A couple of people... More
