The best deal is Breakfast, with option for a buffet or order off the menu. The pancakes are very good.

Prices insane for food not up to par with McDonald's. Service was slow as well. Waited so long to get a water refill that I went out to the hall and used the drinking fountain.

I would be more happy to pay $14 for the buffet at a Holiday Inn Express (which is free but always stocked and varied) than for what Branch had. Very disappointed. And service was insanely slow.

The Montana burger was great. See the restored train car while you're there...it's a great way to step back and time and get a feel for the way people traveled over 110 years ago.

We ordered the huge plate of Nachos with bison. Actually think that three could've shared. Ate in the bar as the dining room looked sterile and uninviting. Service was a little slow considering how few people were in there.

The bison chili was good, fried chicken was average, bison stroganoff wasn't great. The burger was good though, but overall the food wasn't that great for the price we paid. We wouldn't choose this place again.

Many TV's showing games, good pours and reasonable prices. The bar uses the dining room menu. Cheeseburger was very good. Could have done without the Bingo Night. We did not eat inside the restaurant. Brian the bartender was great.

Hello Baileybasset, Thank you for your review, we appreciate it. We will make sure and pass your compliments along to Brian, he will be thrilled to hear them. We are sorry if The Branch Restaurant Bingo night was a less than pleasing experience, the crowd can be rather large. We wish you safe travels and hope to see you again... More
