Good food and nice porch dining. Most portions are large enough to share. Especially nice for breakfast or lunch. Fireplace inside in cold weather. Big menu of house made desserts, especially pies.

This is a great place for breakfast. It is bit on the expensive side but portions are huge. Offer indoor and out door seating.

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.

We've been going to Janet's Montana Café (and the others, too) for many years. Janet's recipes and meal creations are excellent - from traditional items to creative specials, they're hard to beat. The homemade pies, cakes and ice cream are excellent. It's a go-to place...More

Janet's is open some holidays but not others. Best to check with them. They take reservations for large parties (6+).
