It's simply amazing what comes out of the little kitchen inside The Old Brogue. From specials for virtually each day of the week to multiple specials every night to brunch to the 'regular' menu, it's all terrific!

I have been to The Old Brogue several times and have always had great service and even better food. The place is always busy but we have never had to wait more than 5 or 10 minutes to be seated. The interior can be a little cramped but the back porch area is a little more spacious. The food is... More

The Old Brogue has been a Great Falls institution for decades. I haven't had anything I didn't like there.

A friendly dining option, drawing all locals and not so local crowds. Serving consistently good food in a very friendly ambiance.

I've been to The Old Brogue half a dozen times by now, and I've never once been disappointed. Their Fish and Chips is really tasty, and I indulged last time in the superior Mac and Cheese, which was extraordinary. They have wonderful desserts, too -- the Irish Whiskey Cake, the Warm Bread Pudding, and the Pear Almond Pie all come... More

The Old Brogue hosts two series of six or so Sunday evenings of Celtic music each year. These are held in the "Snuggery", their bar area. The groups that play are unfailingly great. Book early because seating is limited and always sells out. The full restaurant menu is available and includes many "Irish pub" favorites like fish and chips, Irish... More

I play a lot of restaurant gigs, and I will never take this place for granted. The staff are friendly, efficient, and quiet (essential when one is trying to sing). Then they have to clear tables in a very short amount of tine and start fresh for a second show, so they're also very patient! And the food is to... More

The traditional Irish/Celtic music shows in February are not to be missed, though the food is delicious year round. We've enjoyed the Derry Chicken Pie, the Guinness Beef Pie, the Fish and Chips, and the Bangers and Mash. All have great flavor and good portions. But the best of the best and worth traveling for is the Irish Whiskey Cake... More

The beer and the Shepherd's Pie were average, but the musical entertainment was first class! This made for an upbeat, cheerful atmosphere during the evening we spent there. Our server seemed overstretched, but if you have plenty of time on your hands and enjoy the music, it does not matter greatly.

Traditional Irish fare; consistently well prepared and presented. Long standing presence in Great Falls, with an impressive listing of employees that have been a part of the establishment for years.
