Best steak in town & my wife loves the pan fried chicken. Great place to eat if you're really hungry. Menu hasn't changed in years & hope it never does. A real step back in time.

Great food, good prices! Not many steakhouses offer a t-bone much less a porterhouse. Borries offers both cook perfectly to order and at a reasonable price. Not to mention Tuesday night is their prime rib night and it is awesome!

We try to arrange a stop at Borrie's every year on our annual MT hiking trip. The restaurant and bar are large, dark, and comfortable but not flashy or fancy. This is a classic family oriented place -- bring your biggest appetite. Steaks range from large to enormous (we often share) and come with soup or salad and sides including... More

We were fortunate to go on a Tuesday prime rib night. The prime rib was one of the best cuts of meat I've ever had in my life. I got a side of spaghetti and the sauce on the spaghetti had a certain something on it that you couldn't describe but it really made the sauce. The atmosphere was comfortable... More

A family gathering at Borrie's, multiple choices made, dinner was a delight and the atmosphere was conducive to catching up on family news. From steaks to crab to ravioli and spaghetti, everything was cooked to perfection. A great place to eat and visit. Try it!

Because the Bar S was closed the Sunday we wanted steak, we went here, and boy were we glad we did!! The decor and ambience is not much to talk about, and the salad and soup were just so-so. But, oh my - the steaks were AWESOME!! We both ordered the half-cut tenderloin (12 oz) and they were thick and... More

This place is a true step back in time. The place captures 1960's perfectly. The style and manner of food delivery is straight out of 1960 and it is completely refreshing! The food quality is outstanding. Their steaks are fantatic. Talking to the man behind the bar is a history lesson in itself. Try iit out, this place is great.

If you're native to GF or have lived here for a number of years, Borrie's is bound to be one of your favorites. It hasn't changed much in the 40 years I've been going; the food is consistently good; I love the salad that comes with the dinners and the blue cheese dressing is one of my favorites. The waiters...
