Always excellent service and food is delicious. We are repeat customers. Great family restaurant. Nice parking lot too, if you are towing a trailer or whatnot, plenty of room.

Best darn meals on the road. Don't forget the pie. These jewels are all made in house and worth every bite. The regular menu fare is good as well, but THE PIE!

The staff was welcoming and friendly. And we had WAY too much food. This eatery is comfortable enough, but not a place to linger.

Description
An all American diner that is open ALL OF THE TIME. Open after bar close for the night owls, and stays open for the early birds. Anything on the menu is available ALL DAY LONG, with the exception of the juicy prime rib dinner (Friday and Saturday night only). Well known for the chicken fried steak, eggs Benedict, and just right hash browns. Lunch specials are served Monday through Friday, along with homemade soups every single day. The food is served quick enough to get in and out for your lunch break even. There are 21 different kinds of pies, most of them homemade as well. Montana made ice creams and milkshakes are also available at any time. The wait staff are friendly and attentive and the food is always awesome. You just can go wrong by choosing Shellie's Country Café!
