Ft. Benton is known as the birthplace of Montana. The Union hotel was the queen of hotels in those days and today the Union Grille serves meals fit for royalty. We had spent the day paddling the Missouri river down from Carters Ferry and had planned to end our day on a high note. The hotel and dining room is... More

Fort Benton is a beautiful spot with the river canyon and spectacular Montana light, but our meal was disappointing. Both fish entrees were salty and distracted from the obvious quality of the fish. The accompanying sides were also too salty, an unusual accomplishment for barley which requires some salt to release it's nutty qualities. I know that I'm salt sensitive,... More

We all had the flatiron steak having had it in the USA last year and were impressed with it. The flatiron was excellent, cooked to perfection and full of flavor. The prices were very reasonable considering the place. The only thing that let the dinner down were the fries and one of the vegetables which were a bit too salty,... More

I had the opportunity to dine at this restored hotel. I checked out the hotel/dining website and reviews before I arrived and was not disappointed. I had made a reservation as it was a Saturday night and the front desk staff advised me to do so as they were never sure as to how full it could be on a... More

My family and I went and try their Mother's Day 4-meal course. We always enjoy our meal and this is our 1st visit with the new chef team ... it was nicely done, presentation was great and of course very tasty. The serving size in my opinion was just right but left me still a tad on the hungry side... More

We visited your fantastic restaurant this evening for our anniversary dinner. I'm so glad we did. We WILL be back. The building was warm and rich with history, beautiful inside with a perfect view of the river. The food. Incredible. When it was all said and done, our waiter offered to roll us out to the car, we were so... More

Dinner in this historical dining room is truly amazing. The room itself has a rich and warm feel – lots of leather (a covering over the table and leather “ties” for napkin rings), dark colors, period photos on the walls, pressed tin ceilings, flickery candlelight, fresh flowers, and cozy booths. The wine selection was wide-ranging and reasonably-priced. We ordered a... More

We're so fortunate to have such a place here in the middle of Fort Benton. Out of the way for most, but well worth the effort. We never hesitate to recommend the Union Grille to our family and friends and enjoy a meal here as often as we can. Lovely atmosphere, friendly and accommodating staff, exceptional food all make for... More
