Although the menu items are different than many American grills, I have not had anything I didn't like. One of the best appetizers is the sweet potato fries with a marshmallow pecan dipping sauce! Although they have a full bar and did do their best, if you are looking for a fabulous martini this may not be the place for... More

I was looking for a place to dine in billings and have dinner and watch the World Series. I looked on the web and found several options but ended up going to Walkers because of the lighter menu. I sat at the Bar and immediately realized that I had made a great choice. The bar tender Trevis, was exceptionally good.... More

It was a busy Sat. Night but Walker's had a table. Modern, elegant & comfortable decor. Our waiter, Patrick, was helpful & fun. The food was a delightfully creative surprise. The Asian pork belly in lettuce cups and the duck legs were finger-licking good. The Thai noodle soup was excellent.

This is linen tablecloth, highly skilled server dining with beautiful plate presentation and great flavors, but it's unpretentious. Great place to take a date, spouse, parents, business colleagues (especially from major cities who assume we don't have this kind of dining to impress), visiting adult relatives, etc. Been there several dozen times over the years, always memorable (and don't skip...

Walkers was recommended to us by a couple of locals and it certainly didn't disappoint us. Meal was excellent, the staff were helpful and friendly. The restaurant was very inviting and had a lovely feel to it.

The Chef cooked the Shark just right ( if you overcook it it is like rubber) the lamb bologna se had great fflavor. Walkers has an innovative menu that is a nice change from the boring outdated menus all over... More

Our experience here was pleasurable in every way. The atmosphere and decor is dramatic and pleasing, the seating is comfortable and the service professional. In fact, this restaurant would be right at home in a city like San Francisco or New York. The food was fabulous. My husband and I shared a meatloaf dinner and my classic martini was prepared...

Had the shrimp pasta special with grilled shrimp. The taste was good, spicy but not too much, and would have it again but was overpriced as was much of the menu. Staff was friendly but did not keep up well with the drinks. Only had water but it was not refilled until dinner was basically over.

I'd heard great things about Walker's and looked forward to checking it out myself. My lamb bolognese was good, but a touch bland. My dining companion's pasta special was also good, but not spectacular. Even though we didn't have a 5-star experience, I'll likely give Walker's another try next time I'm in Billings.

Featuring a modern American menu inspired by Mediterranean cooking, influenced by local farmers and ranchers, and focusing on housemade freshness and simplicity. Regionally-brewed artisan ales and lagers, award-winning wine list specializing in the world's lesser-known gems, house-crafted cocktails using fresh juices, interesting infusions and classic technique. Commonly described as "Urban Montana" with features from over 20 local artists and craftsmen: barbed wire and hand-blown glass chandeliers, cattle guard bar rails, African mahogany and hand-forged metal bar.
