Very dry pork chop special, my salmon was average at best, the BBQ was nothing special and the service was slow. Go to Iron Horse next door - much better food!

I wanted to have some good Montana beef steak and was hoping Cowboy's would deliver. Very disappointed. Hubby and I weren't hugely hungry, so decided to split a filet mignon. We ordered medium rare as you should always order filet. It came mostly medium. I took my second bite which was a huge piece of gristle...in a filet? Unheard of!... More

Plenty of choice and good quality of food against good prices. However, portions are not extremely big so order side dishes if you are hungry.

This is a neat atmosphere restaurant with pretty good food. I was amazed at how fast the food arrived....like within 5 minutes of ordering. The food was above average. The service was attentive. They hire students from other countries to work at their family restaurant, which is a great gesture.
