The atmosphere is pretty good given that it is attached to a bowling alley. The food was good but not great. My meat was slightly overcooked so that decreased my satisfaction overall. Dessert was average as well. Not great but not bad. Average.

The atmosphere is great, the food is really really good, there is a full bar, plenty of room and pizza to go! The only thing is if you have a large party, DO make a reservation! The fish tacos were amazing!

As in the title, it's one of the better restaurants in the area. In this rural area of MT ( nearly all of MT ) restaurants are fairly scarce. I would definitely return to this restaurant.

Very reasonably priced good food in an unlikely spot. I had a wonderful fresh halibut dinner. The halibut was well prepared with a light sauce and some veggies on the side. The portion was twice the size that I expected. Quick service, good wine by...More

Returned after about 4 yrs ... Ennis is a great little town (though I hate to advertise that ... don’t want it to become overrun with tourists!) The Alley Bistro was just as busy and fun as before. Hubs and I split the Smoked Trout...More

Our server was Sue, and she was one of the best we've ever encountered anywhere. We ordered the chicken fried steak and the chicken piccata, and both were excellent. Don't pass up the huckleberry vinaigrette salad dressing -- sounds weird, but it's amazingly delicious! Wish...More
