Amazing breakfast! The food was so delicious I forgot to take a picture. Hash browns to die for, local birdman toast, amazing sausage & great coffee. You can not go wrong here... Anyone who rates this place less than excellent either has no tastebuds or an axe to grind !

The ambience inside is very comfortable. There are many antiques around and the bar in the front dining room really impresses. The food was a treat as well. The split pea soup was freshly prepared and made you want seconds. The Ruben sandwich was big and delicious. The spinach salad was served with lots of cremini mushrooms, plenty of bacon... More

On holiday from UK we found this restaurant by chance. Luck was with us as the food, atmosphere and service was super. We met some realy friendly people whilst sat at the bar and then were shown a table on the verandah where we had some really tasty and well prepared food. The interior of the restaurant and bar area... More

We ate here with friends. We wanted a local place. This is not your ordinary Shack. Located on Main Street and just down the street from the University of Montana, the Shack offers a bit of Wild West decor and cowboy sized portions. I had the fish and chips. It came with a generous portioned salad with greens that tasted... More

Food was okay, but overpriced for what you get (especially for breakfast) $4 for a side of eggs! Huckleberry pancake was $8 for one pancake and the berries were sour (not ripe). Service was reasonable, took awhile to get someone to acknowledge me, but once I got the order in it went okay. The real bummer was how they decided... More

I can't say enough about this place. It's a hole in the wall, that has not only great food, but great service to go along with it. The food was wonderful and the prices are such a pleasant surprise. You get more food than you can eat. Would go back here if ever in the area again.

My Missoula-local brother recommended The Shack for breakfast as we headed out of town. We were quite early, and it was a weekday, so we had the place pretty much to ourselves. Pretty much everywhere in Missoula is vegan/veg friendly, and this is no exception - so nice to actually have more than one or two choices for a change!... More

My family and I visited the Shack, in Missoula for breakfast today. Joe was our fantastic server. We had a variety of things at our table, from the hearty and delicious breakfast burrito, huckleberry pancakes, omelets and the famous Buffalo Pie. It was all, hot fresh and extremely delicious. The coffee is amazing, hot and never ending! Every time we're... More

Stopped in for brunch after the Missoula half marathon expecting crowds, and we waited not even ten minutes for a table. Great menu, something for everyone, even my picky kids.

We have often eaten here when in Missoula. This time, we went on an evening when they do not usually expect many people. When we arrived, we were told there would be a short wait. I went to the rest room and saw that most tables were empty so I asked why we had to wait. He explained that they... More
