Chicken and waffles, need I say more?? This food is delicious and we always leave stuffed! The rotisserie chicken and fried okra are also big favorites. It is small, so seating is limited, especially when weather prevents outside seating, but the food always makes us forgive! We recommend everyone to try it!

We found this restaurant on trip advisor while passing through Bozeman and I had a craving for fried chicken. Like everyone says the place is small but that is ok. We ordered chicken and mashed potatoes and our chicken was barely warm. That would have been ok but my husbands was also VERY DRY! The coating was good but really... More

Well this stuff is just dangerous - it is so good! Service is fast. Eat inside or out. I often take it to go.

This place is owned by Southerners and is a wonderful spot to get good fried chicken. I even had to try there fried okra to get my southern Fix.

I did not think Roost could live up to the hype i saw on-line. But it did. Great fried chicken. I also loved the collard greens, before I spilled them all over myself. Great place.

Something delicious for everyone. We love this little charming Montana restaurant. The fried chicken is absolutely the best. The rotisserie chicken is a great second choice if you're looking for something healthier. The biscuits and pies are to die for.

Wow, great southern style fried chicken! I'm glad I don't live in Bozeman as I would eat here almost every day 😣.

True southern fried chicken in Montana. We found Roost after visiting Yellowstone a couple years ago, so we drove there immediately after landing on this trip. We have had fried chicken all over Georgia and Tennessee and Roost is one of the best. Excellent side dishes (real mashed potatoes and fried okra) and friendly people.

Brought the family here twice in two days. One of our favorite places in Bozeman for a great lunch. Chicken and Waffles, oh my! Nashville Fried Chicken - heck yeah! Fried okra and mashed taters are super.
