Having worked in the bowling industry for the past 8+ years, I of course gravitate towards these locally owned & operated family businesses. This was a very chance visit for dinner on a Saturday night, during my weekend trip to Virginia City. The pizza was very reasonably priced, with the small enough for me for dinner plus leftovers the next day!

What a great find in Ennis!! The food is great and the service is friendly and really good. I definitely recommend this restaurant. Prices are moderate given todays inflation.

I’m so glad you enjoyed your pizza! Our crew makes everything from scratch and puts a lot of time and effort in doing so. Thank you for your kind review! I hope you caught a lot of fish while on the river!

Terrible service, waaay over priced, one and done. Given this situation, since the owner decided to upcharge credit card , I made a similar reduction in the tip. Maybe its not he server's fault, not my problem

Walked a half mile from town to get there based on the Trip Advisor review. I waited an hour and 15 minutes for my order. There was no communication prior to me asking what the problem was. The food was ok but nothing special. Terrible experience after a long travel day and hoping for a pleasant dinner.

Just so you know we have very little staff right now and are doing everything we can to keep our restaurant open. We got hit really hard on the night that you came in because so many of the other restaurants had to close certain nights because they don’t have any staff either. We have a sign on the door that explains our staff shortage and to please be patient. I’m sorry for your bad experience

Their dinner menu as described on their website is non-existent on this Friday night. This restaurant is ranked by TripAdvisor as first in Ennis. They only offered their “bar food” menu not what is advertised. They didn’t bother to tell us when we called for reservations. Don’t waste your time or money!!

I apologize that this happened to you. We had an emergency that affected our main cook and a waitress. We could only stay open if we had a limited menu that night. I’m sorry that we didn’t let you know when you called for your reservation but this happened at the very last minute. Please forgive us. We are seriously trying to do our best during this time. We literally don’t know from day to day if we will be able to open with lack of staff. Please except our apologies

I had the shrimp Alfredo and it was excellent. The Alfredo also came with a salad and was also very good. Service was a bit slow but they were slammed with tourists. I highly recommend this restaurant but not if you are in a hurry

Food and service consistently good. High -back booths instead of tables, so social distancing is a given.

There aren't a lot of places in the wonderful little town of ENNIS, MT.....so, I always want to say the best about everyone of them that is there......and the AB is one that is open year round in this small seasonal resort.....which gets my BIG KUDOS.....we need more places like it! Unfortunately, I have have a couple of really bad meals here.....one was chicken that was cold and pink on the inside....come on.....you always hear that one of the most important aspects of a restaurant is consistency......well, sadly that hasn't been my experience, and I am sincerely sad to have to say this.

Regarding your post on March 10, 2020. It appears that you visited the Alley Bistro in September of 2019. Why are you just now posting this when you visited us over six months ago? You didn’t give us a chance to make it right with you.

Husband and I wanted a good place to eat during the Ennis Christmas Stroll. Country wholesome foods, served in a comfortable cozy atmosphere. Bowling alley next door is a hoot. Burn off dinner calories afterwards by playing a game. Riedel wine glasses! Who knew?! Margaux was a knowledge server and took car of us in style. Red Wine was perfect temp. You will have a delicious home style meal. Pizza's have a reputation for being great as well. Highly recommend.

You can count on your meal at Alley Bistro as "Always Good." We've never had a bad meal there! Especially when John is in the kitchen! Whether you are in the mood for pizza or pot roast, chicken or prawns, you can count on the meal being prepared perfectly and served by a delightful wait staff. The atmosphere is casual. The prices are competitive. The wine list is adequate. Bring a friend. You'll be glad you did!

This place shares the building with a bowling alley but the restaruant side is nice and the food was very good. The only negative was that the server forgot our appetizer. We would go back. We had four people, 4 entrees, 3 beers, 2 glasses of wine, $103 before tip.

This is a totally laid back, local place. The is bigger thane would think, and the wait staff are super efficient and friendly. We went there 2 nights a row because we enjoyed it. The Chicken Fried steak was very good.
