The best breakfast in town, great staff and an old style hotel feel. We will be back next time we are in town which I hope will be soon.

From the outside, you might not guess that this establishment is one of the more popular eateries in downtown Missoula, that is unless you see people standing outside the front door waiting to be seated. Once inside, a hostess will seat you in one of two major dining areas, the front room equipped with a bar and another further back.... More

This was good, really good. Even the coffee passed inspection. The fresh squeezed OJ was delicious. The wife raved about the Buffalo Pie. I had the poached eggs (slightly overdone) and some of the best corned beef I’ve ever had, even the hash browns were perfect. Sourdough toast was spot on. Service was very good with polite and attentive staff.... More

What a piece of history you can taste. The venue was like walking back in time. The food was yummy and perfect for a quick bite. Little hard to find but so worth discovering. Friendly staff as well. Thank you.

The Shack has great breakfasts! My favorite is the Buffalo Pie, but their pancakes and omelets are great too!

We had a delicious brunch for ten, including 4 hyper-active kids. I will definitely go back. The staff were terrific - patient, attentive, efficient - and the food was plentiful and tasty. Highly recommend the omelettes and pancakes. Very reasonable prices. Beware, the place is popular and the wait can be long at peak hours.

This was my first visit to the Shack and what a surprise. The name of the place does it a disservice. The interior reminds be of the grand old buildings of Butte. Fortunately, that is not all to recommend about the Shack. We had breakfast and it was excellent as was the service. We will definitely be back again when... More
