My wife and I go out to dinner most nights. In Helena, unfortunately, there are a very limited number of decent restaurants. And you can only go to them so many times before you get bored with them. So, it is nice to have recently re-discovered the Overland Express. The Overland can by no means categorized as fine dining, but... More

The food is always good and the service is generally good too. However, the last time I ate there, the service that I received was terrible! Everything took forever to get to me--while other customers who came in after I did were served before me!

We were on an overnight stop in Helena, and what else would you want to eat in Montana but steak? This restaurant was close to our hotel so we ventured in. The steak was good, the veggies crisp-tender and the salad was pretty typical. Don't expect Ruth's Chris here, but it's good enough.

Overpriced, dingy, mediocre food. Baked potato was brown and waxy inside. Moldy smell throughput building. Had prime rib special, mediocre at best. Won't return.

Just stopped by for a quick bite, the restaurant was closed so we went into the bar and had a bite to eat. The staff was very friendly.

We ate here as we were staying at the Radisson. The food was ok. The service was funny. Very efficient but not sure why our waitress was in such a hurry, the place was not that busy. Seemed like she had not a minute to spare!

This diner is within walking distance of the Radisson , which tempted me and my son since we were tired. They have an ok selection of beers,a standard American/pub menu. The burger was ok, but not a handmade patty, the fries were good, my sons nachos w cheese average fare. Service was ok but not overly enthusiastic. Prices not particularly... More
