Great bar food and good specials, The Chicken is the best in town! Service is fast and you never have to wait long for food. Paced on Friday nights, so get there early. Nice Casino and reasonable drinks.

The food at this restaurant is very good. The owner and the staff are very friendly and treat you like family. A definite place to eat while in Billings.

Fun place with steaks, burgers and bar food cooked very well and served fast. Drink prices are very good and the atmosphere here is great. Kat, Jen and especially Tana make it a great place for a few drinks and some yummy bar food.
