The Cowboy is actually a bar / restaurant. We were there a couple of times. Once for breakfast which turned out to be OK and once for dinner which was also just OK. It turned out that they had a band that night in the bar - a jazz band which seemed out of place in a place named the... More

Adequate take out. Seems somewhat disorganized, but got out food in a timely fashion. Burger was just ok, chicken sandwich was somewhat better . Well known in area as a fun place to eat and take in local scene n evenings.

Haha their sweet potato fries were delicious!!! I mean, everything was great but if you like sweet potato fries then order them! The bar and restaurant are seperated but the bar offers the full menu too.

The Cowboy Bar is a favorite of locals. It has a western feel to it and is cozy. It has a nice varied menu to choose from.

This is real Montana. Good food, generous portions, friendly service and easy to find. If you're going from Absarokee to Nye, you have to drive right by it - but you'd be better off if you stopped.

I recently ate at the cowboy bar and supper club with a group of my friends. We were told the cowboy bar has excellent steaks and we're looking for an authentic Montana experience. Everything is cowboy including the real cowboys who were bellied up to the bar and eating at the table next to us. It was so great! My... More

I am talking about the lowly burger, many of which if find dry and lifeless. This burger was HUGE, perfectly done, and served with fresh cut fries and all the fixings. If you are out for a scenic off the beaten path road trip, headed for one of the lakes or going to Red Lodge the pretty way do make... More

The atmosphere is great at the Cowboy Bar but the food not so much. My spouse was served a salad with the dark green leaves from the outside of a head of lettuce which I throw away. She ate the cherry tomatoes and I ate the carrot. Waitress never asked why we didn't eat the salad. My Sirloin steak was... More
