Group of four for dinner. Each of us ordered a different burger. This restaurant has very creative toppings for their burgers. Favorites included one with poutine on it, one with a fried egg and the rest of the barnyard, and the Pishkun burger that was buffalo meat with blue cheese on top. On past visits, we have sampled other things... More

I really haven't had anything here that I did not like. Last time was the Mac n Cheese with the meatloaf addition. !! YUM.. for sure. If you are a mac n cheese lover you can be sure you will enjoy this one! Try it with the buffalo chicken too! Fresh salads, great desserts.. you can't go wrong here!

Street parking has inexpensive meters but they do have a free lot behind the restaurant. Service – excellent. The staff was very polite and attentive. The waitress saw my interest in the truffle ketchup and brought a bit extra out because she had a hunch I would want more. Food: we had - Pishkin Burger – Montana bison meat, lettuce,... More

My significant other and I had such a nice, relaxing time, kicking back listening to a local jazz band, all the while dining on delicious fare and partaking of on tap craft beer. We truly had a wonderful time. The rustic décor inside and outside the original, downtown, building is a class act. The service, atmosphere, and food/drink were each... More

We stop here often whenever we travel through Great Falls, and the food is always good. On occasion, the service is a bit slow, but it's usually fine ,as it was on this most recent experience. I have never heard a valid complaint about this place.

Visited this restaurant at lunch time with a group of six. The menu had a lot of variety and there was something for everyone. The house chips are a must have along with the bison burger and the poutine! Great atmosphere and friendly staff.

I live in Europe. I was in town to visit my son and daughter-in-law. When I come to the USA, I make a point to find a good steak! We have been to this restaurant before, one time to be exact. This night the restaurant was loud and packed; live music night. The wine list in my hand and ready... More

We had the Maguire and Cottage burgers and they were AMAZING! The sweet tea passed the taste test of a Southerner too! Definitely recommend!

Really liked the atmosphere of the restaurant and food was great. Too much to eat in one sitting though. Ended up taking as much home as we ate. Will definitely be back again next time we are in Great Falls.
