Always a delight, Bert & Ernie's delivers every time! The poutine fries are especially good! I only wish they would extend their hours to include opening on Sundays.

I had the Thais salad (comes with sliced sirloin on top) and loved it. Lots of fresh veggies, perfectly cooked steak on top-it was beautiful and delicious-$16. It was a Thursday night and there was a live jazz/swing band playing. Service was good and I liked the atmosphere. The music was pretty loud so it probably would have been hard... More

Bert & Ernies is one of Great Falls' best restaurants. Great atmosphere, and good food. A great place for a business lunch.

One of my favorites in Great Falls. Very nice atmosphere & the food is better than typical Pub fare. Have music on occasion & an extensive beer selection. A few unique items such as "pillows" & potine. Definetley a good choice for casual dining.

On our last night in Great Falls we decided to eat at Bert & Ernie's Tavern and Grill. There was live music that night and it was very enjoyable. There is a beer and wine only bar, and beer seems to be the strong point. The food was OK. We had fish and chips, and a New York steak. The... More

Traveling solo, I prefer having dinner at the bar. I am sure that the restaurant prefers I do that as well rather than take a table for 4. Therefore the hotel staff did not recommend this place for dinner. But the next day I had a chance to have a business lunch there. The atmosphere was quite conducive for doing... More

Came in with high expectations and was super disappointed. Our waitress seemed very bored and didn't like when we sent back a burger that was pink inside when we asked for well done. Ordered the corn chowder soup that had a hair in it. She then told us that it was from the corn that's "Fresh". Corn hair is NOT... More

My husband and I had a short stay in Great Falls, passing through for the night. We found this gem and decided to pay it a visit. Well worth it too! The staff was very friendly with a great atmosphere filling the place and a fun band playing when we went. The food was great, along with the microbrews I... More

The location in the heart of old town is great and there are lots of interesting historic paraphernalia and cubby holes to hold your interest. Unfortunately, the food is hardly worth mentioning. The angel hair pasta was overcooked, the blue cheese sauce mediocre, and the seafood pasta underwhelming. And the salads seem to be packaged and not great. Put a... More
