“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Although small, we have never had to wait long for a table. The food is delicious. Chicken fried Chicken is excellent. I always try a burger and they have always been very very good. The cinnamon rolls are yummy. Take one to go! We come a few times every winter and have never been disappointed.

“Outstanding Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We stopped and ate at Boondocks in Island Park last weekend and the food was excellent. The atmosphere was comfortable and the place was very clean. The staff was also very friendly. The Thai Salad was just out of this world good; as was the chicken fried steak. The food was homemade and again highly recommend this restaurant.

Thank you very much! We are glad you had a good time at Boondocks since holiday weekends can be extreeeeemly busy and although we work at full speed, the waiting times can be long. Also some of our crew (attending Montana State, U of New Haven, Northern Colorado, and Oxford in UK had already returned to school so we were a bit shorthanded) We are a simple family business and wish everyone a great meal at a fair price! Thank you again, The Boondocks crew-Doyle family

“Great as advertised”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012 via mobile

Locally owned, well run establishment by some downhome folks-a real find. Read the other reviews, they are spot on, I'm just confirming it. We ate at the restaurant one night and picked up carry-out another night. It was that good.

“Well worth the drive! A gem in the boondocks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012 via mobile

Cash only! The food is out of this world delicious and fresh. We had the million dollar salad, popcorn shrimp and $2 lemonade with free refills!! We will definitely come back. Zach, our horse guide at Eagle Rodge recommended the place and he was right on. Soooo good.
