Quick and tasty

Stopped for lunch around 1pm. Service was prompt and the food was hot, tasty and plentiful. The washrooms are clean and I enjoy the rustic decor.

I have been here a ton! When I am in town for just a night or for lunch, I go here. I order the beef fajitas. That's all. They are big. Ask for an additional tortilla or two. Oh, and the service has never been anything but great.

Ordered 4 cups of cream of broccoli cheese waitress only brought 2 and the soup was aweful, no flavor at all. I ordered the prime rib dip. There wasn't even enough beef to cover the bread. What a complete fail for lunch.

We usually stop here for lunch. They have large portions and the food and service is very good. The decor is fun to look at and they have TV's on the wall for sports.

I took my grandchildren, at their suggestion, for lunch and was pleasantly surprised at the interesting decor. Log wall interior and nice decorations. While it is also a casino, you don't see any of it in the dining room. Our waitress was very attentive and our burgers were great and cooked the way we asked. Will definitely go back

I have eaten a lot of burgers in my time. I would have to say the burger was ranked in the top five burgers I have eaten in my life. I am still drooling over how good the beef was. The décor is awesome and we couldn't have had a friendlier or efficient server...

Diverse breakfast options. Portions huge. Bring a friend to share. My fave the huckleberry pancakes or Prarie fire sausage.

This is a great place to get a good old fashioned Montana meal at a great price and good location. It's close to our house so we go there often and have never been disappointed. You won't be disappointed either.

Great local place. American grill type food. Can get steaks here. Reminded me of upscale dinner with cool old toys hanging from ceiling. I had a Ruben and it was good....nothing to write home about but solid with quality meat. Fries were crisp. Beer reasonably priced.
