“Hesitant to reveal Montana Jack's.......”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

....but need a little PR to make sure this place keeps going. On a dead-end twisting road on the other side of the Beartooth Mountains from Yellowstone. A gorgeous ride on the road to Nye, Montana - especially on a motorcycle - and Jack's is planted in just the perfect place to enjoy food and drink while looking at the beauty all around. Deer will saunter by. You might even see some elk along the way. As for Jack's, it's got the personality of its surroundings. Everyone's friendly. You'll find genuine conversation (if you want) as you sit at the bar. The menu walks a nice line between inventive, local, organic, and grass fed beef burgers - not to mention specials of the day that just make you want to ask what has been cooked up in the chef's head to keep it interesting for the locals who go there all the time. If you're near Red Lodge or Columbus, MT, make a day trip of it out to Nye, and Woodbine where the Stillwater River runs hard out of the mountains - and stop at Montana Jack's along the way. I love it out here. You will too...

“New Cooks!”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

We have eaten at Montana Jacks numerous times during the past 6 years, but our dinner last night was the best. They have new chefs and the food is excellent. The service was also exceptional. Word is spreading because we needed reservations and the place was packed. Will go back again VERY soon.

“Thee GEM”
Reviewed October 10, 2008

To anybody living or visiting Montana within a hundred or so miles from this place you Should, you Have, you Need to try them out. They are called Montana Hanna's Stillwater Saloon and Trout Hole Restaurant.

We take "back" roads from Red Lodge - the drive is scenic over the rolling Hills with a view of massive mountains.

For special occasion our preference is their Restaurant. We frequent the "Saloon" with a real massive rock fireplace that crackles and sparkles.

I go there the "feel" and for ribs - mouthwatering, delicious - you don't even need to chew - they just melt. Other favorites: chicken sandwich, fries. I believe everything is great, but I am hooked on those ribs (Tim, the owner, said that he slow-cooks them for long hours).

Can't wait to get back there again. Hmm... I wonder if they can overnight my ribs to California?
