One of the few eateries in town with a parking lot...trust me, it's a big deal! We came in to Missoula to look at venues for a "Meet & Greet" reception for impending nuptials, and the Iron Horse provided the best options. (The upstairs room with separate bar and access to the outdoor patio were key to our decision. Not... More

The Iron Horse offers a nice selection of brews (there is also food) but it was far too loud for us. We would have liked to sample more but due to our discomfort, we had only one and left.

The Iron Horse is deceptively much bigger than you think when you first walk in. In the summer it offers outside dining, has two bars on two levels and a menu to satisfy any appetite. Service is good, never a long wait. They don't take reservations but I have always been able to find a table no matter what the... More

Sometimes for a lunch, sometimes for a pre-event dinner, we can always count on The Iron Horse to provide a good, quick meal in an exceptionally cheerful and relaxed atmosphere.

While the atmosphere is fun, especially with the great outdoor seating sections, the food quality is something of hit-or-miss. Have had some great meals there and others not so impressive. The service is good and the drinks are good. Exceptional, not really, nice and ok.

Iron Horse felt like a Brew Pub that does food as a sideline. All of our food was good, but by no means great - it makes it more obvious that at least one of their competitors in town does a great job on both food and beer. Service was average - not bad, and our server let us know... More

My wife and I stopped by the Iron Horse recently for dinner. The building is nicely appointed and the atmosphere is good. We seated ourselves and were greeted quickly. The service was very good here. We ordered our food and beers and the drinks were delivered quickly. Good appetizer with very good sandwiches. The burger I had, in particular, was... More

A local recommended this place and it was AWESOME. My husband is a beer lover and likes his hoops. Not me I like the sweet girly drinks. Since he tried the Beer Sampler I was the designated driver for the night. This sampler was a huge surprise. We expected for the price a small plate with little shots, what he... More

We went to this restaurant for an early dinner with friends. I always enjoy the atmosphere here. Service was quick and the server was polite. The lobster mac and cheese was the best!
