Let's chat a bit about the physical restaurant. As close to perfect as you can get. Probably the coolest BBQ restaurant/bar I've ever been to. Great indoor accommodations, great deck over looking the river and mountains and one of the coolest "patio" areas I've ever...More

Opens at 3:00PM, so no lunch service here. We had a party of 5 and waited about 30 minutes for a table. They have tables both inside and outside on the patio overlooking the Gallatin River. Great views of the neighboring mountains as well. The...More

They don't take reservations. But will accommodate you if they can. I called and was told no reservations. But, they had our table for 10 setup when we arrived. It wasn't very busy because of our early arrival time.
