The service was great, but not a mask anywhere so don’t know about CDC guidelines. My husband ordered fish and it was great. I ordered chicken which was cold on the inside and overcooked on the outside. Really wish that I would have read others...reviews first! The locals were all getting hamburgers and patty melts, so order that if you go there.More

Despite being shorthanded during a dinner rush, the staff here churned out delicious food and friendly service. My husband & I couldn't believe the food we got for the price, and the pizza - amazing! During our 3-day stay, we would've gone back for a...second meal if their outdoor dining area hadn't been closed. I definitely recommend the Little Missouri.More

Thanks for the outstanding review! We are so glad you enjoyed your visit and our hearty portions of fresh pizza. At this time of year the outdoor patio is only open when weather permits so we apologize it wasn't available for your entire visit. Your...More

Loved it! Fun, busy restaurant with a great outdoor dining option. Hardworking, friendly staff who were happy to offer menu recommendations, share local information and chat when things slowed down. Ribeye steak was excellent, cooked perfectly (extra rare). Portions are large but don’t miss the...onion rings! We really appreciated the extra large wine pour 🥂.More

After a full day in Teddy Roosevelt NP in mid-September we stopped here for a very early dinner. Glad we did because it was jammed by the time we left and I am not sure their staff could handle that volume. Given Covid we were...looking for outdoor dining and they had a nice balcony. Since there appeared to be no precautions by the staff relative to the virus it was good to be outside. The waitress was OK but not exactly friendly. The burgers were good especially the mushroom swiss burger, though a bit more medium than medium rare. The onion rings were very good. The potato salad was also solid. The menu did have lots of appealing appetizers but we resisted. Bottom line the food was good but being able to dine outside better. Also arrive early... maybe now that the season is winding down this may not be as big of an issue.More

We appreciate your review and are glad you enjoyed a warm day on our outdoor deck. While we do follow every state covid requirement indoors, the deck and online ordering have been a popular option during these tough times.

We ate here as was one of the only places open for food in the evening. It has a great atmosphere and the food and drinks were good. There was only 2 waitresses but they worked their butts off and they were super nice and...always let you know they be by to take another drink or food order. So just have patience as it was a great place with good food! They were also nice enough to turn on Thursday night football for us! I would recommend!More

This restaurant certainly did not follow CDC guidelines. It was so overcrowded we decided to order take out. The pizza was good. The restaurant can’t get workers. We actually went in in the afternoon the next day after they finally opened. The poor girl was...working her butt off. She was the waitress, bartender, bus boy, and served our food. The steaks were overdone and they didn’t have baked potatoes so we were served cold mashed potatoes. Got our salad after eating the entree and she had to make them herself. I would’ve walked out if I were her and never looked back. She said she had lost 20 pounds in three weeks since working there. Hopefully it’s better in the summertime, but I had read reviews before and they were not good.More

We visited the last week in September after the tourist season and during Covid. This was the only restaurant open in town for dinner. There was also a labor shortage in town. There were only two waitstaff to serve the tables, clean them and run...the bar. When we arrived we were not greeted. After trying to get a waitstaff’s attention several times we were sharply told we could sit “wherever” and it would probably be 20 minutes before they could help us. Since we had eaten at the gas station in town the night before because we couldn’t get in here, we grabbed a table and waited. Once the waitstaff got to us, she was much friendlier and tried very hard to make our stay a nice one. We had burgers that were okay. The decor was fun and it had great atmosphere.More

After checking into our hotel, we discovered that most restaurants in Medora had already closed for the season. Luckily, we found the Little Missouri Saloon and had very tasty steak dinners. It was extremely busy, but our waitress was prompt with bringing our drinks, getting...our order, and serving our food. We were very pleased.More

Sat outside on their deck. Nice spot. We were able to watch a wild horse band way up on top of the cliff. Good appetizers. Waitress was really good but super busy.
