“Great location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

Everyone raves about the hamburger at the York bar, very average I'd say. But, the help is friendly, the beer is cold and York is a great place. Lots of great trails start around here and the bar is very comfortalble

“Great drive for a great burger.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

Great place to hang out and one of the best burgers I have ever had. Has not changed in years and the drive on the way up is very nice. Don't expect anything flashy just a great friendly tavern in the woods with a burger you will always remember.

“Relaxed and not changed in years”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

The place is tired and in need of update -- restrooms very tired. Burger was amazing. I couldn't get enough. They rock the burger and you will be amazed. Love the dollars on the ceiling!

“Good Burger, but Not So Great Service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

We checked out York Bar after hearing about their delicious burgers. We didn't know what to really expect. You have to order up at the bar then the cook calls your name when your burger is ready. This is fine with me besides it took us forever to order a burger. There was only one bartender who took orders, got drinks, and cashed people out. She also only moved at one speed and seemed more interested in gossiping then taking care of customers. The burger ended up being very good, and I was impressed with the cook. I might give it another chance, but I just hope the service is a little better.

“High Camp Bar & Grill with Decent Burgers”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

A signature York candy ends the meal at York Bar & Grill, located outside of Helena, in "York," named for the black man who accompanied Lewis & Clark on their expedition. After a hike in Refrigerator Canyon, this is a great place to get a burger and brew and relax. Good microbrews available in draft. The clients range from bikers to families; all are welcome. Great service. Onion rings are good but no fries, which seems a bit strange. Don't expect table linens but do expect a warm welcome. It's in a lovely location, just past Hauser Lake on the Missouri River.
