We chose Old Piney Dell for our New Years dinner. The fixed price was comparable to other nice restaurants, and included appetizers, a glass of champagne, and dessert. I'm not a champagne kind of guy, and they allowed me to substitute a local craft beer for the free drink. The food was creative and very well done; head chef Eric... More

Be prepared for average service, if the special was not used up the day before you can bet it will be the special the next day - so food is not always fresh. Do not drink the water or anything made with it. Manager will get argumentative if he feels your dislike or unhappiness with a food item is not... More

Not only was the meal outstanding, the view could not be better. Sat with a view of the creek through a wooded frame that was just perfect. The appetizer was a lamb dish that melted in my mouth. Apple flavored cream sauce was wonderful. The buffalo shallots were so very tender and flavorful. Would go back again and again and... More

This place was perfect for us after a long day of driving, casual and comfortable with a nice bar. The food was very good.

I cannot speak to the food of this restaurant but can definitely speak to the POOR service. I reserved a table several weeks in advance for my parents, fiance, and friends as part of our wedding celebration weekend. One week before the dinner, Old Piney Dell called and said they had made an "error" and needed to cancel our reservations!!!... More

Excellent - Chef Eric is the best. We order this as it is our favorite with lemon butter caper sauce. We have eaten this favorite 2 times in the past month. The soup special is wonderful - avacado/crab cream soup.

Good menu and wines; quite different than most of the restaurants in town. Adjacent to a lovely roaring stream.

The first night we stopped by, they were not open (it was a Monday). The next night we showed up expecting to be able to order tapas as that is what was listed as a special of the night by the local Chamber but we were told they no longer offered that. Ended up having two of their German dinners... More

Old Piney Dell is a Montana restaurant set in the beautiful Beartooth Mountains. Originally an old mining cabin, Old Piney Dell started being used as a cultural center in the 1940's, and was soon converted into a restaurant and bar. This has been a local secret for over 70 years!
