We looked for a place to eat on the road passing thru Bozman and though this place might be a local place to try. We had different types of burgers, mainly bison. It was a great burger. Fast and good service. Well worth the stop.

There's nothing worse than a restaurant that serves fish tacos in flour tortillas. Thankfully, John Bozeman's Bistro does not. They also have an eclectic menu for all tastes which is to say, hamburgers, salads and other main courses. Additionally, they understand food allergies so substitutions are easy and do not cost extra.

Nice variety on the menu. The Cajun New Orleans with tenderloin was delicious. Nice beer selections. The wait staff was attentive. Full plate menu was a bit pricey, but worth trying

Many years ago, this was the "go to" restaurant in Bozeman. Now there are far too many options in town to ever go here again. The service and atmosphere are fine but the food is a shadow of its former glory. Trust the Trip Advisor ratings. My inclination was to hit Ted's or Ale Works which I've recently had great... More

Both the food and the service here were top-notch. Our drinks never went unfilled, the service was quick and friendly, and the music was pleasant. I highly recommend the Mona Lisa sandwich.

The service was good all through dinner. Tried the small House Salad and Caesar Salad. Both were large. The house a nice mix of veggies, the Caesar... More

My french onion soup was quite tasty. I ordered iced tea (no sweetener) to go with and was brought their special house tea which was sweetened and almost overpoweringly cinnamony. My lunchmate ordered fish tacos which he said were pretty good. The waitstaff was quite attentive. We thought it strange that we couldn't order off of the lunch menu at... More

My wife and I visit Bozeman at least a couple pop times a year for nearly 20 years, and I think while visiting downtown Bozeman we must have walked past this place every time. This time we stopped.We were glad we did. We started with the fried calimari, and loved it. We moved on to an Argentine tenderloin for me,... More
