Best Small Town Restaurants in Montana
Montana is a great place to get a steak—with more than 2 million head of cattle in the state, there is fresh beef everywhere you look. Whether you like a juicy steak or a basic burger, prefer diners or fine dining, there are plenty of restaurants featuring local fare to explore. While cities like Bozeman and Missoula get the most buzz for great dining, there are plenty of small town restaurants putting out big time flavors in the Treasure State.
Varying widely in both cuisine and ambience, the Western Ranch Brokers team has gathered a list of some of our favorite places to eat in small towns across Montana. As a stop on a summer road trip, a respite after a long day on the river, or a special night out—these dining gems certainly deserve a mention.
