We went here late at night during the week. We were pleasantly surprised. We all had burgers and chicken tenders. Burgers were actually very good. Fries and ranch were very good too. Chips and queso were a little but above average. Service was average but great for a tourist place. Sports on all tvs too. I would come back here.

We found this brewery on Bring Fido. Comfortable seating on the patio for dogs, great service and the Market Salad was the one to get, although all the food looked better than typical. I ordered mine with Spring mix since I don't love arugula. The Amber beer brewed for them is good too.

Good brew pub. Nachos yummy, so are the sweet potato fries. Really like the Buffalo chicken salad- spicy and blue cheesy

In Downtown Missoula, popular place with a solid beer selection and knowledgeable servers. Sat down inside instead of sitting in the friendly patio, it was a warm night. My meal was the Salmon BLT sandwich with a Bayarn beer. Ahhhh. Good stuff. Busy but efficient service. Good mixed drinks too.

The title kind of says it all. We had a 20-person business meeting and got stuck on the mezzanine in the boiling sun. The food was tasty but the service was slow and the seating arrangements were horrible. I guess they are trying to appeal to the college age ambiance even though the pricing seemed a little high. I won't... More

We were grateful to find this restaurant...one of the few in Missoula who tolerate pets on a patio and provide full service. We arrived in the early evening and sat in hot sun - so the only suggestions to improve would be more shade and perhaps a bowl of water for those hot puppies who have no choice but to... More

Stopped into the Iron Horse for lunch while visiting a friend who lives in the Missoula area. He recommended the Iron Horse. The brew pub is located at the end of N. Higgins Avenue on the other end from the river. Nice selection of local ales and a decent menu, mostly sandwiches. Waitress was friendly. I selected the Tender 501,... More

The front desk person at our hotel suggested Tamarack as his first choice and Iron Horse as his second. We looked at the menu's online and were drawn to a particular item on the Iron Horse Menu... my family arrived happy and excited to be in Missoula. We were greeted by a super passive aggressive server/bus boy... we were moved... More

This was recommended by the receptionist at our accommodation. We were really pleased. I had what was called a small plate - I have a good appetite but needed help to finish. I had the chicken schnitzel, which I thoroughly enjoyed and my husband has the elk burger. He really enjoyed it and said the chips were particularly delicious. I... More
