Stayed overnight in Billings at the Northern Hotel and just walked around the corner to here. Well above average modern and tasteful environment, great menu, great staff. We went on a Sunday when they have live jazz and the trio playing were fantastic (Parker Brown trio). Felt like a New York bar from the fifties/Mad Men era. My only disappointment... More

I ordered two small plates; the duck drummettes and the pork belly lettuce cups. Both dishes were tasty but both were overly sauced. The wait staff were attentive and pleasant.

I never come to Billings without having at least one dinner at Walker's. Ate in the bar last night with friends. Our meals were outstanding. Love their pasta. Place is always buzzing. Saw friends and family from Bozeman and Helena. Word gets around when you been serving outstanding food for decades. Best "grownup" bar scene in town.

We had been traveling in Wyoming for a few days before coming to back Billings. The dining choices were limited and average (or worse) while on the road. We really wanted to treat ourselves to a nice meal on our return. After reading several reviews of Walker's we decided to try them for dinner. We arrived without a reservation and... More

Server was very friendly and fully engaged my 13 yet old son. She even took him into the kitchen to meet the Chef. The pork belly appetizer served on individual little beds of Boston lettuce was very good. Chicken tenders were not on the menu but the Chef cooked some anyway for my very finicky 13 yr old!

We went there about once a month for many years and had great steaks, good music and excellent service from all of the waitresses. A good selection of food on the menu and working class eatery for an evening meal. The noise level gets so high sometimes that you have to yell/turn your hearing aid up to communicate. Poor accoustics,... More

We had great drinks for a special occasion, tasted 5 small plates which were all EXCELLENT and nice to have such different flavor combinations, so tasty. The salad was excellent and my husband enjoyed the garlic hamburger. We topped this off with apple crisp which did not disappoint. The service was also very good and helpful. I would go to... More

Walkers Grill is perhaps the most upscale restaurant in Billings, with a far more urban ambience than the other downtown restaurants. It's located right in the absolute center of downtown. The bar has a great view of the street, and this one corner (N. 27th Street & 1st Ave N.) might actually be mistaken for a corner in a major... More

Description
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. Attire includes everything from jeans to tuxedos. Walkers enthusiastically supports local farmers and ranchers, using local and regional ingredients whenever feasible.
