Came here with some friends and their children after exploring Philipsburg. The food was good and the staff was nice. The only downside was that we were not brought refills for drinks, even after we had asked for them (and only one other table was occupied...). Left thirsty...but besides that it was a nice place to stop. Ask for a... More

I've only had the pleasure of one meal there, but it was quite good! On a recent visit to the Inn at Philipsburg, I strolled down the hill to the Sunshine Station for one of the better breakfasts I have enjoyed recently. My waitress was welcoming and cheerful - a real accomplishment for that hour - and I felt right... More

I left there satisfied and ready to take on the day. The hash browns dish and sausage was very good and filling. I will return.

We visited Philipsburg again with friends, and had dinner here. It is not fancy, just down home comfortable. I had steak cooked to perfection, another at our table had a burger and two others had the special of the day. Everyone was happy with their meal. The waitress was happy and very accommodating. An all around good experience. This is... More

We ate dinner here, and it was good. Had their breakfast, also. Lots of locals eat here & they have a bar, also. Try Huckleberry Lemonade drink.

We went as a family of 8 and had no troubles getting seats. The staff were all very friendly, and knew the menu. Sunshine Station is a true steak and potatoes kind of place and I would recommend going.

This funky little restaurant/gas station/casino/bar/country store is something out of the past, but the food they serve is both plentiful and delicious. If you ever find yourself in Philipsburg, MT you must stop in to eat.

Visiting the beautiful little town of Philipsburg and decided to try lunch here. It is a bulding that houses a restaurant, bar/casino and store. Restaurant is clean and service is pleasant. Food is good. I just had a burger and fries and wife had tacos. Both meals were tasty.

Want a local experience while in the Philipsburg area....try the Sunshine Station and if you're lucky they'll have live music and dancing? Where else can you get a good, tender New York Rib Eye steak dinner with drinks for $30 AND THATS FOR 2 PEOPLE??? Friendly service and interesting locals at the bar. If you're looking for a western Montana... More

Really good food... Service not as great... And long wait times for the food to come out! We ordered burgers and fries. They were excellent, but took an hour to get them... Waitress never came back at all to refill drinks, seen her twice, once for taking order and once for dropping off food. Also had to ask for the... More
