The dinner steak was out of this world as we remember it 25 years ago. Chicken Marsala was fabulous and chicken cacciatore outstanding. Exceptional service and ambience is perfect. I grew up with dinners at Lydia's with my Grandparents and they haven't missed a beat. Where else can you find a supper-club environment these days? Relax and enjoy fine dining... More

We had 20 people including 5 children on Saturday night, reservations were made a long time ago. We had one frazzled waitress and one bar guy. As a "steak house" they have food on the table when you get there salad, dip, bread sticks, green onions, pickled beets? Then they bring you tasteless plates of spaghetti and ravioli, then you...

Lydia's has been in business since before WWII. The first location was in an Italian ethnic neighborhood of Butte, Mt. known as Meaderville. When the Anaconda Mining Co. decided to go to pit mining, the town of Meaderville was actually bought out and became consumed by what would be called the Berkeley Pit. Lydia;s reopened outside of Butte and in... More

Our visit tonight showed us that sometimes in life GOOD things do endure. We enjoyed a very good meal. After tasting everyone's dish, I think the scallops, Parmesan crusted salmon and ravioli were super good!! great service from the bar as well as from our waitress who has been there for 30+ years! I think I remember her terror service... More

We ordered to cold water lobsters 12-16 oz. what we received was one wonderful lobster and much smaller warm water lobster with no discount of the price or explanation. We've not had this problem before. How disappointing.

You get lots of food with every meal, also most drinks come with it, beer, wine, milk, tea, etc. Mostly locals and they know a good place to eat! Wonderful service and very pleasant atmosphere.

Decided to try Lydia's for the first time in years. It seems that the pre-dinner fixings are fewer since my last visit. There was 2 of us and the servers should have ignored the thin slice of salami and cheese. It was just a mere taste. The New York strip was good but unfortunately it was far beyond my likes....

Was in Butte for the weekend and it was my husbands birthday. Had a word of mouth recommendation for Lydia's. We were concerned about our attire. We only had very casual clothes with us. There were no issues. This is a very nice sit down restaurant. The food was very good. It was a splurge but worth it. The service... More

The old school atmosphere is awesome and the service is fantastic, however for the price you can get a much better meal else where. Our prime rib and steak were good. But our spaghetti was the worst I've ever had and the deep fried Oreo tasted like fish because their grease in the fryer needs changed. Honestly if someone says... More

Take a step back time. I hadn't been to Lydias in many years but had a chance to return for a family members birthday dinner this past weekend. The place hasn't changed much over the years, but it's still one of the best for a good old fashioned supper club type meal. Our server was great, the food was great,... More
