If in Missoula and you have time to go downtown instead of along I-90, go to this restaurant. We hadn't been there for a while and was delighted with our food. The breadsticks were very good as was the pizza. The atmosphere is great in an old building with a deck. The deck is great in the summer. The wait... More

MacKenzie River Pizza has been in Missoula for quite a while now. There pizzas are good, with choices for toppings. The crust is very thick. But they have an extensive menu with a variety of food, not just Italian. Their house salad dressing is to die for! Among other things, it has shallots. So many people like it that they... More

We went here for lunch with a friend and her family. I will say that we were quite surprised at how inconsistent the food was. I ordered a small thai pizza with no cheese which was surprisingly good. We had kids chicken fingers for one of our kids and they were done really well. My wife had the Chicken Pesto... More

I've eaten at several MRPCo's throughout Montana, and this one was disappointingly just...average. I even ordered the same thing I usually get...Caesar salad, only this one had too much dressing on it, and the Flathead Pizza with no meat, add extra veggies. The pizza wasn't fully cooked in the middle, although the edges were perfect. The service was still friendly... More

My friend and I just returned from a most unfortunate experience at this downtown Missoula location. We walked in at 9pm, we were just looking for some dessert to celebrate her birthday. We asked the hostess if that would be okay, and she happily obliged as we knew exactly what we wanted and didn't even require menus. We would be... More

Overall not that great of an experience. Pizza wasn't that great and they were out of one style of crust and out of one of the toopings on the pizza I ordered. Staff and location were great, just not that good of a pizza.

this is one place we all like to go to for pizza. For the kids menu they can get a salad or other veggies for the side with the order. They have lodge poles (bread sticks) that are good too

We had a great birthday lunch for family here--sitting outside on the deck was fun. Tried I believe a Thai pizza, that was surprisingly tasty for those that prefer the regular pepperoni pizza! Great attentive service. Inside and outside both had atmospheres where you can actually talk and hear each other without shouting...a nice bonus!

We went in for a late lunch and were pleased with prompt service and great food. The chop salad was yummy and fresh and the chili was excellent! Kids all enjoyed their meals as well. Location was convenient- we walked down to Caras park and let the kids burn off some energy after.
