So here we go Michael... exactly how long ago was your visit? Seeing that we haven’t had a heat wave since August, I’m assuming it was awhile ago. During that time we had a cook that was fired because of his ability to, well, cook....More

We were here for lunch last year and were blown away by the amazing food. After staying at the Sacajawea Hotel, we decided to try their breakfast. They were busy and only had one waitress staffed. We were seated and waited an hour for our...More

What a great description! Cornucopia of delight! Love it. I am sorry for the slow service. We have had staffing issues through the summer. If it's not everyone wanting the same times off, it's other issues that leave us scrambling. We look forward to your...More

It was a quiet morning but the service was quick and comical! Pancakes and chorizo scramble both delicious. Fast and hot coffee. Great small town stop.

We love our Gallatin Valley roots! Our community supports us, and we support them. I personally feel it's the little (mostly unnoticed) things a business puts forth effort in that makes it a special place. We are so thankful when our customers take note! We...More
