Our group of 10 adults was fortunate to get a reservation for their outdoor area. It is gorgeous! Flowers and trees everywhere made it a very relaxing and enjoyable dinner. The food and drinks were also very good, and everyone enjoyed their choices.

the simple answer is no. However if it's a service dog they would allow it and depending on who's working, some do allow them on the patio that is off of the bar.

The Smokehouse is an old Montana lodge with a fireplace burning in winter and a shady flower filled patio for summer dining. The huge lawn ia also a wonderful place for the kids to play with our bunnies and they love it. We have a full service bar with Belgian beers and local brews on tap, and a complete wine list. We also have a brunch buffet every Sunday from 8 am till 2 pm. Tuesdays and Thursdays we have live music.
