I LOVE this place! It's def got a preppy sports bar feel to it! All of the people are super nice! They have several things on their menu that are gluten free!!! I never have a problem finding things to eat! Their drink menu is amazing!! The specialty drinks are soooo much fun and delish! We come here fairly often... More

We have eaten at the restaurant regularly over the years. Our last visit was less than satisfying. We went early, experienced so-so service and our very simple burgers were dried out and tasteless. Had the server checked back with us soon after delivering the food, maybe things could have been rectified. He did take off our drinks as a nod... More

This brew pub seems to target the college crowd rather than the dining crowd that likes a good beer with lunch or dinner. Plenty of local beers to pick from, but no local vodka (which is very good). The burgers and fries were just OK. The décor is very pleasant "western wood". It is very noisy, making table conversation difficult.... More

Seems to be a 'happening' place. Good vibe. Don't go there if you want a nice, quiet dinner. It's a bar. Had some good Montana beer. Hubby ordered the 'fish and chips' and was surprised to get sweet potato fries. I'd go back if I lived closer.

Not too much to say about this place. The French fries were good! Actually it was exactly what I expected. It's a bar. You don't go to a bar for fine dining. All of our burgers were extremely well done. But we found that if we put enough ketchup on them it kept us from choking. I doubt that I... More

Great place for a break during a Missoula downtown weekend. Good food, drinks and atmosphere. Close to the Farmer's market.

This is a seat yourself establishment and it can be kind of hard to find a spot when you are in town for the big game. Service was very good and the food was nice. Had a very nice dinner. Would go here again

Nice downtown cafe, had a late lunch and a couple of beers. Our server was so nice and friendly. The weather was beautiful so we sat outside, the tables and chairs were comfortable and clean. Very nice place. Highly recommended.
