food was good and the decor was neat

The food was good and the decor was neat to view. The prices were fair,but if you order water, don't expect refills. The guest that were with me who ordered soft drinks got refills, but not me, and the waitress never did offered to refill my water glass.

My daughter and I stopped in for lunch with her getting a chicken strip, fries and salad meal while I got a bacon cheese burger. The chicken meal was not very good. Although the fries looked to be cut at the restaurant, they should have been cooked in hotter oil. However, my bacon cheese burger was top notch. The bacon... More

A true western decorated breakfast establishment that should not be missed when visiting Bozeman. We arrived just in time on a Saturday morning before the crowds swarmed the place. It looks tiny when you enter with a long counter on one side to eat at, or tables to the left, but a large back room more than doubles the size.... More

Homey and a genuinely Montana place. The food is delicious and comforting, although nothing fancy. It is not east to spot, but if you are looking for a down-to-earth meal among locals, it is your place. You will be rubbing elbows with real cowboys and cowgirls. The prices are low, especially for the upscale Downtown. Truly a lovely place. It... More

Fun atmosphere, excellent food, great customer service! Food was piping hot and the beef on my Philly steak sandwich was so tender it melted in my mouth. Bottomless coffee and the biggest helping of homemade strawberry peach crisp a la mode ever. The house was packed with locals, definitely a hot spot when you want some good home cookin'. Outstanding!

The best damn chicken fried steak in the Northwest! Perfect breading, real cube steak, cooked on a flat top, and by far the best sausage gravy I've ever had. Pretty good coffee and real homemade jellies. Top three chicken fried steaks in the Northwest. 1 Western Cafe. 2 Jimmy's in Coeur d Alene. 3 Silver Spur in Sheridan Wyoming. Only... More

The Western is part of the oldest existing building in Bozeman. More important, it has some down-home breakfasts that will make your stomach proud of you. Try the cinnamon rolls and you'll not want to leave!

Good breakfast with few frills. Some say it is a little old and in need of improvement. But it always seems busy and that says something.

The Western was hopping with people--we had a 15 minute wait. They keep good track of you without taking your name while waiting...and they direct you to a waiting area once one opens. Getting in can be tough with people standing in front of the door--which on a snowy freezing cold Bozeman morning could be tough! Veggie scramble was pretty... More
