We loved everything about Rimrock Lodge! We motorcycle and love places where you pull right up to your room door and if there’s a decent restaurant within walking distance, that’s tops! Laurel set us up with a Rimrock Lodge room that was clean, spacious, well-appointed, and offer splendid views of the Clark Fork River. The air-conditioning could have been more aggressive but that’s a minor quibble. A great spot for $70/night!
There’s a knack to good bartending that includes being knowledgeable about what you’re serving and being a great conservationist. Josh is a terrific bartender! He led Laurie through the various MT craft beers he had available and urged me to get the Tanqueray for my gin and tonic instead of the locally produced Lewis and Clark. I had one of each and he was absolutely right! He got us involved in conversation with a local guy and we had a nice prelude to dinner.
Laurel did a great job taking care of us in the woodsy and comfortable dining room with scenic river views. Laurie and I both had steaks (though I wish one of us would have ordered the trout). Man what a great rib eye steak they serve up! Perfectly grilled, locally sourced, aged, and never frozen choice beef sided with a medley of grilled garlicky fresh veggies... The peppery sausage gravy, which Laurel said we HAD to try, was fabulous!
