7 Outdoor Restaurants In Montana You’ll Want To Visit Before Summer’s End
While the days of summer are dwindling, we’ve still got a few weeks left before our thoughts turn to changing leaves and pumpkin spice. And if you have yet to have a meal delivered to you on a beautiful outdoor deck or patio, head to one (or more) of these seven spots as soon as you can.
1. Tamarack Brewing Company, 105 Blacktail Rd., Lakeside
Tamarack Brewing Company's Lakeside and Missoula locations both have outdoor seating. And while Tamarack is a great place to go in any season, there's something especially perfect about enjoying a pizza and a cold beverage in the summer sunshine.
2. Gallatin Riverhouse Grill, 45130 Gallatin Road, Big Sky
The BBQ at Gallatin Riverhouse Grill is mouthwatering, and the ribs alone are reason enough to go. But during the summer, the outdoor seating area and live music will make your meal even more memorable.
3. Bistecca at the Granary, 1500 Poly Dr., Billings
Bistecca at the Granary is a fantastic place to enjoy a wonderful meal in a building that dates back to 1935... or, when weather permits, on the patio, which is one of the best in the city.
4. Pete's Lakeview Bar & Grill, 820 Shoreline Drive, Polson
What's better than sinking your teeth into a sandwich or burger on a deck with a perfect view of Flathead Lake? Just one thing: Pete's has an extremely creative dessert menu, so you'll want to save room.
5. Stillwater Fish House, 2635 US Highway 93 W., Whitefish
At Stillwater Fish House, the seafood is fresh, sustainable, and flavorful, which is why they've won numerous local awards. And in the summer, you can savor your entrees on their spacious patio.
6. Cafe Madriz, 311 Canyon St., West Yellowstone
Cafe Madriz is a seasonal restaurant, which means you don't have much longer to order paella and tapas from the front patio. If you're making a trip to Yellowstone National Park before fall, stopping here is a must.
7. Cafe Fresco, 317 E. Mendenhall St., Bozeman
If you live in the Bozeman area, perhaps you've already been won over by this charming little Italian bistro and wine bar. But dining on their seasonal patio -- or even indoors when the doors are open -- is an entirely new experience.
These are a few of the best outdoor dining options in Montana, but until fall is in full swing, any meal enjoyed al fresco is a good one. Here are some
waterfront restaurants to check out ASAP.
