Since moving full time to Montana, many people suggested the trip to the little town of Willow Creek, right off Route 90 not too far from Bozeman. So, we went and were amazed at the food and the ambiance in this building. I highly recommend the experience. Don't bother to ask them how they do it, it is a well kept secret!

Visited Willow Creek Cafe and Saloon after spending the afternoon at the Lewis & Clark Caverns. We arrived just as they were opening and because we had made reservations our table was all ready for us. The people are very friendly and the place is decorated in an eclectic mix of antiques and game mounts. Our group of ten ordered a variety of entrees but most had the ribs, which were very excellent. This place is off the beaten path, but if you like doing local better than the chain places, it doesn't get more local than this.

While our visit was with an intimate group of ten, this would be a great place to go have a romantic dinner as a couple.

We have been to this place over time through about three owners. Willow Creek itself has a great little artist's gallery across the street from this and they have some great openings there. Otherwise a VERY quiet place. You kind of have to look for this little town to even find it and most Montanans don't even know it exists.

The café has some pretty good ribs, great décor, lots of locals. Sometimes it is too crowded to get into so call ahead! Well worth it though.

We had a family dinner there and the RIBS were excellent and the Chicken Fried Steak was excellent and the Steak was excellent!! We were there on a Thursday night and the place was full, pretty surprising for such a little town, so again WOW and way to go!!

My Mom was visiting from out of town(I live in Bozeman) and I had heard about the ribs and how amazing they are. I made a reservation for 7pm. We ended up getting there a bit early(6:15) and the waitress sat us, let us hang out while we waited for one more. We each had different entrees so we could each have some bites of everything, complete with a few orders of ribs. Everything we had was very good. We had a party of 5 and left very, very full, with a wallet that wasn't crying. My Mom is still talking about that dinner and its been a month. I would recommend this to anyone and will be headed back soon myself!
