Transporting you to the very heart of the Northern Rockies, the casual, rustic atmosphere with unique Montana Lodgepole furniture, stunning panoramic canvas and historic photographs sets the tone for distinctive, creatively prepared food served by vibrant employees renowned for passing their upbeat attitudes on to our customers. The MacKenzie River menu features an incredible array of delectable dishes, always flavorful and fresh, and served up in heaping portions. The acclaimed gourmet pizzas are offered on a variety of crusts – sourdough, natural grain, thick and thin – with toppings from classic pepperoni to pesto, ricotta, and sun-dried tomato. With nearly two dozen pizzas on the menu, you are bound to find at least one you’ll love. MacKenzie River also offer hearty sandwiches served warm on fresh-baked bread, full and half-sized salads, pastas that will wow your taste buds. You will find everything from Pulled Pork Nachos and Buffalo Chicken Mack n’ Cheese to a fresh Cobb Salad, housemade soups and Wings. Be sure to save room for the Mack Lovin dessert, gooey chocolate chip cookies topped with ice cream and chocolate sauce; it’s great for sharing. To complement the menu choices, select from a variety of microbrews and fine wines.

Nice place to eat

Have eaten at the Mac Kenzie River In Butte before so tried this on in Helena. The one in Butte is a 5. Helena is not quite a good but still a great place to eat. Food was good and our server was great. Reasonable prices.

If you're looking for some good food, come here. If you want a huge order of Nachos, get the cowboy nachos, it's a very generous portion! The lodgepoles are super!

The willow creek sandwich was good. The waitress was friendly and the service was also outstanding. Was with a large group and they all liked their food as well.

We always choose MacKenzie River Pizza Co when it is available. We were pleased with our food and our service. Great place, even when very busy.

My sibling ordered the small pulled pork pizza and I went out on a limb and tried meatballs with noodles. Need a descriptive adjective? Dogfood. Amazing how some small towns along a traveller's way can have truely great simple meals and orher's survive on atmosphere..or just air.

I came early for lunch on 21 December 2014. I was the only customer. Kelsey did a good job with the table service, but the spinach salad was lackluster. The spinach was not very fresh, and the walnuts included in the salad were apparently old as they had that kind of bitter/rancid taste that goes with old stock. The chicken... More

I've been to a half-dozen restaurants in the MacKenzie River Pizza chain, and have been a loyal patron for over 20 years. However this particular restaurant has some problems. Our group of 4 arrived at about 2:00 in the afternoon, well after the noon-time rush. There were only about 3 or 4 other groups in the restaurant. The waitress was... More

I call and order gluten free pizzas all of the time. The approximate time given over the phone of when my order will be ready is almost always accurate. I have never gotten sick from eating their gluten free food either, which means that there is little to no cross contamination. Pizzas are also delicious

In rating the service, I'd give it a 1. In rating the food, I'd give it a 5. I chose a 3 to compromise between the two. This is a popular place because the food is so good but be prepared to wait a LONG time for your food. We were there as a group of 10. To ease the... More
