I arrived not long after they had opened and was immediately greeted by a pleasant you man who showed me to a booth in the sparsely populated restaurant. There breakfast menu was pretty large and I chose the Huevos Rancheros. The presentation was excellent. I neglected to order the chorizo which would have added more spice to the dish. Nonetheless,...

One of our favorite places for lunch or breakfast. Check the times that they are open, many days they are open also for dinner. The service was very good and good was great.

Found this place after being suggested by a friend, great little restaurant in the middle of Missoula. Quaint and quirky décor with a good menu. Friendly service and drinks and food were served quickly. Maybe a little expensive for some but still worth a visit. Good parking directly outside restaurant. Would definitely visit again.

My husband and I visited for breakfast on a Tuesday around 8am and had no wait (and did not have to pay for street parking - it doesn't start til 9am!). The host and waitress were both friendly and efficient, and our waitress happily explained house specialties. I got the banana bread French toast and my husband got the 2... More

The Shack was absolutely lovely. Adorable space, fast, friendly service and delicious food. I had the grilled tuna and Swiss and my husband had the corned beef hash. Both were great! If we weren't just passing through town we'd definitely hit The Shack again!

This was a GREAT suggestion from our Uber driver. Get ready to eat a DELICIOUS breakfast. I think we had the buffalo pie. I love gray so it couldn't have went bad!

After a fun filled night in Missoula, my friends and I were in need of a hearty brunch to soak up our hangovers and this place was the ticket. They serve mimosas. Obviously that is the most important of the things. They had a fairly large menu which made the decision making part pretty tricky, but I finally settled on... More

I had the chicken fried steak with jalapeno gravy and my girlfriend had a chorizo omelet. The chicken fried steak was extra crispy on the outside and tender on the inside and the over easy eggs were cooked perfectly. The jalapeno gravy was a brown gravy, but I'd like to see a white gravy version of it. The farmer's omelet... More

Went there for breakfast. They have an extensive menu of omelets and pancakes and the like. The omelets can be ordered with 2 or 3 eggs with a lot of options for fillings. My daughter had her favorite breakfast -- corned beef hash. My son-in-law and I had omelets. The hashbrowns were quite good. The coffee was bottomless, and was... More

The Shack is one of my favorite breakfast places - the chicken fried steak with jalapeno gravy is the bomb, as well as any of their omelets.
