“Pretty good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Overlooks the river - great to sit on the terrace on a hot evening.

The food was ok - mine pretty average, but the steaks the others chose looked pretty good. What impressed me was the service - in lots of ways, nothing was too much trouble for our table. "Bread" is not on the menu, but when we asked for it they rustled up ciabatta and butter - many chain places wouldn't have the flexibility to do that, to please its customers.

I like that.

Not a great "foodie" experience, but great location and good atmosphere. Good for a night out with friends.

“A taste of USA in York”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

We went here for lunch and were very surprised and pleased with Missoula bar and grill. The restaurant draws its inspiration from the capital of Montana in the USA and much of its food comes from that area.
The restaurant has a decent sized bar area with terrace overlooking the river Ouse, and a restaurant separate from the bar with its own terrace for open air eating. Be warned that most of the dining terrace is exposed to the sun and can get very hot. However, most of the indoor tables also have views of the river.
The food is pretty basic, but is well cooked and presented, however a little pricey if the American imports are chosen. The service is good, fast and friendly.
During the week, advance booking is not needed if you are eating, but on a weekend, advance booking is advised.
All in all, I cannot really fault this restaurant and I recommend it if you want a sampling of a USA bar and grill in York.

“Friendly and relaxed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014 via mobile

This restaurant is on the bank of the River Ouse at the middle bridge in York. It has a nice terrace high above the water which is lovely on a nice day. Inside there is a more formal restaurant at the rear, but if you prefer there is also a bar/bistro area which is less formal. However you can get the same menu in either area.

We were well looked after by Maria from Spain. Quick, efficient and friendly. She happily brought me a couple of small beer samples to allow me to make my choice. Nice touch. The food is American themed, with burgers and steaks, but there are other choices too. The burgers are great. Highly recommended. Small but served on a brioch bun which was fabulous. Overall, just a perfect portion rather than the "stack em high" approach you usually get. Well worth a visit. We would go again when in York.

“Great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Great atmosphere, food and service. Sitting to eat too near the bar area could be a little noisy for some when the place is busy. Waiter very efficient. All in all very pleasant would recommend and would definitely go back. Good for couples or groups young and old.

“Great Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

Just been for a meal here 2 nights ago, must say it was great, service was very good, all staff very attentive. Interior was really nice, empty tables cleaned right away. Would definitely go ack and would recommend. Surroundings nice, outside sitting by the water with a glass of wine, can't get better than that.
