“We liked it”
Reviewed September 18, 2010

Husband and I visited the bar and grill side on a cold Friday evening. The service was great, the food was good and plentiful, and the atmosphere was casual and just the right thing after a long day of travel. Husband had a Rueben Sandwich with Fries, and I had a smoked brisket sandwich with cole slaw and BBQ beans. Everything we had was really good. I would definitely go back if the opportunity arose.

“Casual yet stylish old gal with a hip vibe and awesome food”
Reviewed September 14, 2010

Loved the food at this beautiful, nostalgic old restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. Try the buffalo burger or bison tenderloin! Great wine and drink menu. These folks know what they're doing.

“Absolutely awful”
Reviewed May 23, 2010

The food is ridiculously overpriced (you can get two NY strips of superior quality elsewhere for the price of one here), portions are meager, and the quality is horrendous (the salmon "special" and the pork loin were completely bland, although I will say the deep fried mushroom appetizer was good, which is the only reason I give the food a 2 rating instead of a 1)). Service was also exceedingly slow and the ambiance was terrible (uncomfortable chairs and noisy, not to mention the tacky and amateurish paintings on the wall). The attached pub seemed active and had some nice amenities (e.g., a nice outdoor fire pit)--I speculate that it is the pub that keeps this establishment going. It is certainly not the restaurant.

“REX...justput the meat on a greasy grill and that is it”
Reviewed June 10, 2009

If you think this is the way a steak should be cooked...then you have never dined at a fine steak house. Another Billings joke for dining. The steaks are gross and greasy and cooked on a grill of sorts...not prepared correctly. Service is horrid and the seafood is really bad. But people in Bilings think this is big time....small town...small minds.
