A Pasty is Cornish in origin and were traditionally carried into the Butte mines and Anaconda Smelter in their lunch pails - often called " a letter from home." They are meat combinations wrapped in pie dough and served like Lisa does with gravy, ketchup...More

As someone raised in Butte, I must say that Lisa's pasty's are better than any commercially available pasties in Butte, Anaconda, or Billings. Large enough to feed two people, filled with quality beef, not ground meat, and perfectly cut potato cubes.

Terrific portions. Good prices. Beef pasty with brown gravy was very good. Expected more seasoning and vegetables. Kind of plain meat and potato. Service was great. Many people take out. You do not go away hungry. Not fancy dining. Casual residential setting. Give it a...More

Lisa's is a fun spot to stop by and enjoy a Letter from Home - what the miners called the Cornish/Irish baked pasties tucked inside the tin lunch boxes. And, Lisa does the tradition proud.

Very simple, warm, friendly small restaurant-nothing fancy----that serves Irish food-pastys especially- that has been so well known in Montana for years. And it is the bet place for the old-fashioned "pork Chop John" sandwich which originate in Butte, also. Not a large place by any...More

This is the place to go for a genuine pasty. Eat in or take out. You can get a whole meal for $10.00 that includes a pastry for desert. Love it. The service is great also!
