My family visited this Dairy Queen to remember our wonderful grandmother who has recently passed away at the triumphant age of 104 and a half. Her favorite snack in her old age was Dairy Queen's chicken strip basket and a small blizzard. So to honor her memory my family, 20 total, came to share her favorite meal. As overwhelming as I'm sure we were, the staff here were willing to go above and beyond with their service. Everyone received their meal hot and left feeling full and happy. Thank you Dairy Queen staff! You've made today very special for us.

Our family (with two kids 7 & 5) stayed here for a week with a couple other families. Absolutely perfect in every way - parents loved fishing & seclusion along the river, kids loved exploring, fishing the ponds and playing in and along river. It easily accommodated our large group. We look forward to a return soon!

Sundance Cafe

Reviews:
Really nice people run this small, extremely clean and friendly cafe. Always a lunch special of half sandwich, salad and a piece of cheese cake. I am not a dessert eater and it is rare that I partake, but here their cheesecakes are to die for. They regularly have on-hand seven varieties and have 30 more that they run through. Today was Red Velvet Cheesecake and it was a piece of ruby art with white frosting and layers. Unbelieveable and a picture of the slice is fit for a coffee table book! How amazing! I could become a happy fat man if I just gave it up for cheesecake at Sundance. Very reasonable prices. Won Best in Service in the Bitterroot Valley annual ratings, and that is soooo appropriate. Treat yourself and go ahead and give in to the devil whispering in your ear to do dessert.
A little bit expensive, but I loved my lunch here and this is a nice, family-owned business with lots of delicious desserts and a large variety of food. I had an order of the soup and garlic bread (which was filling and delicious.) That day it was a loaded potato soup. I barely had room for my raspberry cheesecake! I also had the huckleberry lemonade and it was a little tart, but still a great addition to my meal.
Wonderful place to eat in Hamilton. The "pregnant burrito" is great! A meal unto itself. The wine margarita is delicious. Great price and very friendly service! Make sure you give them a try!!!!!!!!!!

Excellent food. Good service. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
If this place is with a 1 hour drive, you need to make the trip. Soup of the Day: Red Curry, Tomato Beef...yum. Special today: Halibut with bbq sauce on a bed of rice, topped with shrimp & cucumber. a side of asparagus & pesto. Since I'm eating alone, is it tacky if I lick the plate? Too bad I can't figure out this App, the pictures I took when they brought my food, captured a beautiful presentation.
Hands down, the best restaurant in the Bitterroot Valley. I've lived here for 10 years and have been to this restaurant several times and they are spot on every single time. Thank you Spice of Life for being able to keep your prices fair, for using local ingredients, and keeping your quality absolutely phenomenal!

Taste of Paris

Reviews:
Delightful small bistro with indoor and outdoor seating. Excellent service. French onion soup daily, tasty, not too salty and hot when served. A+. Salads were perfect. This is a "must come back to try other items" kind of restaurant. Desserts were numerous so I tried the daily special of cherry "custard" which was light and allowed the cherry flavor to dominate. The chocolate mousse was "difficult to find words sufficiently superlative" to do it justice! And the choice of drinks was almost excessive and included imported French sodas, multiple flavored coffees and steamed milk with or without flavoring. So quit reading my review and grab your keys to drive to A Taste of Paris.
Loved it what amazing onion soup and ham and Brie croissant! Love this place as does my grandma
We just enjoyed a delicious,authentic French lunch right here in the Bitterroot! My onion soup was perfectly prepared (not too salty as cheap imitations sometimes are!) and served hot but not scalding. I had the Geraldine special drink that was exactly as advertised-exact balance of sweet and sour. The chocolate mousse was outstanding as well. We had a young man as our server who is in high school here but had the poise and manners of a seasoned French waiter. The outdoor seating was especially delightful today.

Went to lunch here with my mother and grandma and absolutely loved it! The atmosphere is so nice when you walk in, both elegant and quaint at the same time. I had the swiss chicken and mushroom sandwhich that was amazing! loved the flavors and even had enough to take half of the sandwhich to go. We all really enjoyed the coffee and chai tea. Excellent service, would recommend this place to all my friends!
Dined here twice. The daily soup choice was amazing both times. Great beef sandwich and very tasty halibut tacos. Very nice decor and a quiet place to dine. I wish this place had beer and was open past 8 pm.
Five stars even tho no wine options yet! Wait staff was very friendly, service was quick and the food excellent. I had the halibut taco - great overall taste, with a subtle blackened seasoning and wonderful slaw. My wife had the salmon sandwich - perfectly cooked salmon and wonderful seasoning. We shared the chocolate mint creme brulee - omg! It was all exquisite. Go there now and get you some!

Some of the best BBQ and Beans I've ever had! If you're in the mood for BBQ and you're in the area you've gotta make a pit-stop here.....pun intended.
Very good barbecue! Nothing fancy but darn good flavor! Very friendly service and a nice salad bar.
Amazing BBQ. The fried green beans are insanely good.

Higherground Brewing

Reviews:
Great atmosphere, friendly service, Sasha is a very excellent ambassador for the brewery. Nice range and selection of brews. Lemon Haze is reminiscent of Leinenkugel Summer Shandy but more complex. Pizzas were nice sized and well made. Clean throughout.
Came by to try out their beers via sampler, which came out to be eight beers. Styles cover a decent range including golden ales, scotch ale, IPA, red ale, stout, etc. Being a mostly IPA fan myself, I didn't particularly care for any of the beers and thought the Dry Fly IPA was a bit lacking. The only brew I really liked was a seasonal beer, the Meditation Ale, which is an interesting mix of Japanese-American pale ale, clocking in at 8% abv. For bites, options only include $15 specialty pizzas and salads at the moment. I enjoyed the "365" pizza with its' interesting toppings of garlic sauce paired with dried cranberries, chicken, broccoli, and bacon. Crust was a bit thin but that's expected from the wood fired pizza oven. Service at the bar was okay, a bit slow on a non busy Saturday afternoon. As a venue, there's plenty of seating, tables and bar stools. Think I even witnessed a 5 year old's birthday party at the brewery... strange. Montana liquor laws only let brewpubs open till 8pm, since its supposed to be a tasting place, not a full blown bar. Kind of absurd imo.
This pub has a fun ambiance, good selection of beers, and very good food. I was expecting "pub grub" quality, but the salad was gigantic (one was split by the 4 of us) as well as fresh, and the pizzas (varied & interesting selections) were delicious. Orders were placed at the food counter (and delivered to your table when ready) and then a separate line for ordering beers - was a little confusing to those of us who are not locals - I don't know if this is a Montana thing - but one-stop-shopping would be nice. However, I will definitely return and highly recommend this brewery.

a greta sandwich place in Hamilton. i had a rueben which was good .. not the worst but not the best and the cookie was decent but not stellar. a good choice for the area
Very Nice Food, Service and Prices. 5 Star by Far! The Staff here are very VERY friendly and can start up a good conversation while still keeping there mind on the order. I got a 16 ounce Caramel latte and many (7) cookies. the price was AMAZING compared to any other caffe! The total was only $12 The cookies were very chewy (my favorite kind) and very big. "The coffee was excellent!" (In the words of my mother). I have only been there once and I did not get to try there Breakfast/Lunch, but I can imagine it is absolutely SPECTACULAR compared to what I did get! Overall: I would definitely come again and again! Definitely a MUST try!
A nice, friendly, coffee shop and bakery that also offers a limited lunch menu. I'm not a coffee drinker so I usually choose one of their tea selections and I love their bakery goods. My husband, who does drink coffee, says the coffee is flavorful and fresh. Some of my favorite bakery choices are the triple chip cookie, apricot scone, cranberry scone and ginger bread cookies. I've always found the service to be fast, helpful and friendly. The place can be fairly crowded at times but that's because it's a popular place. Yes, it can be a hang out spot for certain regulars but that's part of it's charm, especially for people from this area. It's a small town gathering spot where people are made to feel welcome...where you can chat with friends, read a bit, or people watch as you enjoy your food and drink. There's always the take out option too if one is in a hurry.

This is the home cooking one hopes for when driving across the country. Amazing homemade food. Great people. Carrot cake was incredible. Place is on 2nd floor and it's worth the stairs. Please support this wonderful local business! True American goodness!
Came for lunch, got the pulled pork sandwich and it was a lot better than their breakfast & it looked like everyone else around me opted for their brisket burgers. They also offer boba drinks, this is the last place in America I'd expect to find bubble milk tea of any sort. I ordered the mango boba and it came with "popping" boba which isn't even popular in California boba shops yet. Interesting. Friendly service as always from the lady running the shop.
Under new ownership! Thankfully... Great little salad bar and food is great. Really happy to have a nice spot for lunch in town. If you tried it before and had the experience many others did give it another chance.
