Edit of 8/30 review, forgot to rate. Meatloaf returned, not charged for it. Awful recipe. Server was gracious though.

This restaurant has great ambience with the feel of being in Montana. There is also a large expansive deck for outdoor dining. The staff is attentive and the food is more home-style cooking.

Everyone needs to come to Janet's at least once. The food is great but it's really the atmosphere and surroundings that make this place wonderful. WE love to sit outside and take in the beauty of the surroundings.

Good service, good burger and onion rings; non-edible meatloaf and potatoes. Very disappointing, we won't go again - 1 meal out of 2 was not eatable. Waiter was gracious about it and deleted that entree from the bill. No one else working there - the...More
