When we want to celebrate in Bozeman without regard for the cost we often choose Gallatin River Grill. It is a beautiful setting, meadow and mountain views. The food is beautifully presented, and perfectly cooked, unique and complex in flavors. The service is excellent.

Once again we stayed at the Gallatin River Lodge and had dinner. We have never been disappointed and this time was no exception. Food and wine were fabulous, service was courteous and professional. Atmosphere was very relaxing.

Fresh coffee is put out starting at 6:30 am. I ate the full breakfast with eggs, toast, potatoes and THICK cut bacon every morning. Each of my friends ate a different dinner item and we all loved it. Good wine selection and desserts too!

Food extremely disappointing - In Bozeman for MSU Parents Weekend eager for a nice family dinner. My college son and I both ordered the $50 Wagyu Ribeye - which was served lukewarm. We reluctantly sent our meals back, as even the mashed potatoes were cold, and not palatable. Our server apologized, and explained this has been happening frequently, due to the heat lamps and nearby fan not working cohesively, and somehow all tied to the lodge fireplace in operation, sounded like kitchen complications. They generously, and quickly prepared 2 new plates for us, but the second attempt was equally disappointing. I've had better cuts of steak from a grocery store- these steaks were not Waygu- we could hardly slice them with a steak knife. It became comical. Very overpriced, poor quality steak. We ate the meal, but will not go back, and share this to advise others. (My other son had the Roasted Quail, which was excellent, and my wife had the Squash Risotto which was average)

We had found the restaurant highly recommended online, and the website menu was very appealing with a variety of Bison and Waygu entrees- but the nightly menu was very limited, with this one red meat option.

The atmosphere and service were nice, but very disappointing to have a poor steak in Montana

Rick W,
Thank you for visiting us at Gallatin River Grill, and for sharing your experience with us. We are very sorry to hear that we did deliver a wonderful dining experience for you and your family. We do source our Wagyu beef from a local cattle company here in Montana, and carefully inspect each cut before preparing it for guests. We apologize for not meeting your expectations on the quality of the meat, as well as not serving it to you at an appropriate temperature. All of our kitchen fans, as well as our fireplace are working properly, and do not affect the temperature of the meal, so we apologize for the information that was shared. Thank you for your feedback on the other dishes, including the Roasted Quail. Our dinner menu on our website is the current menu, and unfortunately, are not able to update other online menus accordingly, so we do ask that guests refer to our website for the most up to date information. Please feel free to contact us directly at 406-388-0148 so we can discuss further. Thank you.
Kind regards,
PJ Wirchansky
Lodge Manager

We stayed at the Gallatin River Inn for three nights, September 12-14. Two of those nights we dined at the Lodge and had the best food and the best service we have experienced in many years. Don't bother going anywhere else in Bozeman. This is it!

We had the salmon and the chicken. The salads were creative and different. I had the toasted romaine salad; my husband had the one with the raspberry dressing. Everything they do there is exquisite and tasty. The servers, especially Sean, were attentive but not bothersome. They know their food!

We had dessert both nights and will be back next time we are in Bozeman. All the efforts this chef is going through to produce a unique and quality meal are greatly appreciated.

Many thanks for pure class.
