I finally have trip advisor so I can finally write this review. A while back we made the mistake of eating here. It was the only meal we had had that day on our trip. That night we were both very sick. I did not improve or was able to keep anything down for a couple days so I ended... More

We left Yellowstone and traveled over the Beartooth mountain pass. Red Lodge was at the bottom. We stopped because they had a crowd. Lots of people getting shakes and ice cream cones. We ordered 2 burgers, French fries and onion ringed, one shake and a coke which came to $20.00. My husband said the blackberry shake was one of the... More

On the edge of Rock Creek. Best buffalo burger to be found anywhere. Ice cream is nice after a day of hiking. Sit out on porch and listen to creek.

We ate at the Red Box Car twice during our 4 day stay in Red Lodge. It was well recommended for having good burgers, shakes and smoothies at a good price and it was worth going back a second time. The decks where you can eat offer a great view of the river and the the staff were very friendly.

We stopped here several times during a recent trip to red lodge. And every time it was busy. We only ordered "food" one time and the rest we ordered ice cream. The burgers are perfectly adequate for the type of place it is. The ice creams cones are great! Best value of all the places that sell ice cream in... More

We stopped for lunch after a long morning of driving. I love this type of place. It's not a chain and has many options on the menu. It was busy and we had to wait a bit for our order, but we enjoyed the beautiful view from the deck while we waited.

Ended up here because the two other places were tried were closed on a Monday night. Saw the long line and figured it had to be good. The wait to order was not too long but the wait for the food was very long and the worst part of it was that when I was called to the window, I... More
