Average hamburger and fries, not bad. Service was slow really slow. Fun, nostalgic atmosphere. All-in-all, okay.

Pancakes in most restaurants are tough (from overheating the batter) or fried (from cooking them in too much oil) or both. Not at the "Uptown Diner"! The very best I have ever eaten outside of my home. They were almost an inch high, fluffy and tender. The Uptown fried potatoes were like supper thick potato chips and excellent. My egg... More

The food was really quite OK, but good grief SOMEBODY needs to wipe off the menus from time to time. No kidding...there were parts of the menu that couldn't be read because of the dried on food stuck to the menu. Kind of takes one's appetite away. Our server was VERY friendly and eager to please, but we won't be... More

Diner atmosphere is nice although a bit worn around the edges. Excellent location in central Missoula. Stick with breakfast dishes served all day. Burgers and meat cooked to the extreme, nearly inedible. Service is friendly but be prepared for 15-20 minute wait. Again, go for old time atmosphere and breakfast menu.

We would eat here again. A funky diner with a great breakfast and friendly staff! Next time we'll eat there more often. A really great place!

Feeling hungry on Sunday or any morning? This diner - with true diner decor - has a great selection of items for breakfast or brunch, which is served all day. We enjoyed the omelet with sausage and jack cheese, and the crisply prepared hash browns. Lunch food isn't bad but not on the level as breakfast food....EXCEPT the milkshakes, which... More

During a recent cold spell we stopped at the Uptown Diner for lunch. It had been a while since I have been there and the years have not been kind. The interior is very run down. The paint is old, faced and dirty. The furniture looks like Goodwill cast offs. And that was the good news. We sat down and... More

Always can be assured of a good selection, great service and a quality Montana made breakfast. Have also had a good lunch here on a couple occasions when in town.

We go to this diner monthly on our drives through M-town. The food is always delicious but lately the kitchen is awfully slow for a diner. There is always a line to be seated, but maybe they need a few more cooks.

Great atmosphere and service. Food is usually awesome, but if its not, the waitress will get it taken care if right away. Very popular, especially Saturday and Sunday mornings, so expect a wait.
