“Nice patio but overcooked ribs.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

The food was not all that good. Wished we had tried the Monatana Club. The patio was great, but the food was so overcooked I had to leave most of my ribs on the plate. I could not get the meat off the bones it was so overdone.

“Good food, average service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

We asked to sit on the patio and had to ask who was the waiter as we sat outside for 15 min. without service. Food was very tasty and reasonably priced.

“nice summer patio”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

Was very nice to have dinner on the patio overlooking the city. Stays light relatively late, so there is much time to gaze out and enjoy the view.

This is a beer place; don't get the wine. But the food was good with large portions.

“Unique eating experince”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

Has a car/truck you can sit in to eat---unique deco---great views of Butte if you sit on the right side. Not a place to dine but fun to eat at.
Not crazy about the menu choices---but good Bar B Q.

“Great for Butte”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

Butte unfortunately doesn't offer up a plethora of good eating establishments, but Sparky's Garage is trying to change that. The service is good, professional, and friendly (my wife worked for years as a waitress and floor manager at several different restaurants, so she is constantly paying attention to such things.). The food good, even great, as long as you are expecting the basic burger and steak joint. Overall, a great place for a family, with friends, or just an enjoyable meal.
