Description: The Gallatin River Lodge is the most spectacular place to dine in Bozeman and southwest Montana! With breath taking views, creative & classic cuisine, an outstanding wine selection and a full bar, the lodge guarantees a dining experience you will remember. Each aspect of dinner at the lodge is made from in-house ingredients; from our bread baked daily to Chef Craig's famous huckleberry ice cream. Our culinary team works exceptionally hard to bring an array of Montana products to your table. We serve locally sourced meats including select game items, poultry from local growers and offer a good selection of seafood sourced from west coast suppliers. We are so appreciative of our local farms, ranches & dairies that allow us to bring such quality products to our guests.Homemade creations continue throughout the restaurant, as all of our innovative cocktails are designed from scratch. You will find a handpicked selection of Montana made micro brews, a full selection of premier liquors, and outstanding wines to accompany your meal. Our wine list boasts unique selections from around the globe with more than 120 bottles to choose from. One of the most enjoyable aspects of a dinner at the GRL is our Montana landscape. Our dining rooms offer picturesque views of the Spanish Peaks, a table side trout pond, grazing dear, eagles & hawks and the occasional rainbow. Drinks and dessert always taste better when enjoyed in front of the fire in our great room. Hands down, we offer the best dining experience in the Gallatin County. The Lodge also offers an exceptional space for corporate dinner parties, weddings, retreats or any array of special events. We are highly flexible with arranging space, coordinating menus, and helping organize an entire event. Experience the best Montana cuisine in the area. We are open nightly and reservations are appreciated!

“Great food and great view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

Went to dinner on and had a wonderful meal. We have traveled around Montana and this may be my favorite place. The food was excellent and the view spectacular. The service was as good as I have had and I live in New Orleans and am used to great service. Ricki was our server and made us feel right at home. She was very knowledgeable about the food and the lodge. We truly enjoyed every minute of our meal.

“Beautiful room and excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

Montana is filled with eye candy - sweeping vistas, wildlife galore, and snow capped mountains. However, in this college town of Bozeman, corporate food chains reign supreme. It was wonderful to find this classy farm-to-table get-away to enjoy a city-worthy meal in a delightful setting. The grazing horses, whitetail deer and bobcat and wild turkeys on the drive in on a gravel road just added to the ambiance. The food was excellent - prepared well and presented well. My travel partner from Texas ordered her steak well done, and it was still tender and juicy. The cornmeal crusted walleye was tasty and fresh. Don't miss dessert. The room was light filled with lots of windows. We were not the only guests getting up to take photos during dinner!

“Great food on the Gallatin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

Delicious food, excellent service and great setting. Has a good variety of selections for food and drink. I had heard that this was a great place to go and was not disappointed. Only had dinner but took a tour of the place and would be very interested in staying there as well.

“great location, great atmosphere, and good food to boot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

We really enjoiyed staying at the lodge and eating at the restaurant. We walked down to the Galllatin River before dinner (a few hundred yards) and saw all sorts of birds along the way. Then had a couple of different nice wines and a really nice dinner. The wait staff was very attentive and the atmosphere in the restaurant/lodge is really nice. We went during the shoulder season (mid march) so it was pretty quiet. I imagine during fishing season its a bit busier. The food was very good - lots of local produce and very well prepared. we'll be back!
