Nice decor ,friendly staff, good portions.Second restaurant we ate at in Great Falls and again an hour wait from the time we ordered until food arrived. We were there at 2 pm on a quiet Saturday afternoon so not like they were swamped .

The menu here is diverse and can accomodate a variety of people in a group. The atmosphere is bar and grill and the service was good. I would return here in the future.

I strongly recommend the burger with egg, ham, bacon, and onion rings. Outrageous but one of the best burgers I’ve had. Onion rings were good. Beer selection good as well.

Stopped in mid-week for dinner with friends. Service was a little slow considering there were only a few diners there. Drinks were good, food was yummy, and the live music was very good.

I'm not sure about gluten free, but I think they do. Best to check the menu on line.
