A word from Highlander Bar & Grill
Highlander Bar & Grille is just 20 minutes from downtown Helena located just off the shores of Canyon Ferry Lake at Norwegian Wood Ranch where we raise and serve Scottish Highlander cattle. It is a unique dining experience with outdoor dining in the summer months, a full bar and live music on the weekends. If you’re lucky, you can see our 950 pound "Pork-chop the Pig". This is a truly Montanan dining experience with great local color.

    Food and drinks very good. Friendly, fun staff. Far enough from Helena to feel like a getaway, close enough to be easy, crossing the stream on the way to the restaraunt sets the mood.

    The food was excellent and the staff were fun and laid back while still remaining professional in their duties. The music was wonderful. My husband and I will definitely make the highlander our favorite place to dine and hangout for drinks and good music and carmraderie with others. the only constructive feedback I have to offer would be the suggestion of having a keurig available for those who want decaf coffee. That's it! :-)

    A bit pricey but very excellently prepared to perfection. Dessert was seasonal favorite, guess you can't improve on costco pumpkin pie.

    We went to the Highlander Grill with very high expectations, however, those expectations weren't totally met. The ride there from Helena is breathtakingly beautiful. We were greeted warmly and promptly seated. There we sat for a long while before our drink order was taken. My husband' s biggest complaint was that it was not a value. Very expensive for what you get. Also, our water goblets were never refilled.

    We chose The Highlander because the times we have celebrated here in the past few years were memorable. I was a bit disappointed this time because there seem to be a few things missing from the wine list and menu but overall we were treated very well and the birthday celebration was quite special.

    Whether too busy or choosing to buy lesser quality beef, for the expense, the Grill failed us on Friday night.

    We had a res for 5 at 7PM. We arrived at 6:45, introduced ourselves, told the hostess we would be happy to sit and have a drink and wait as they were waiting for a table to clear. At 7:45 I asked when we would be seated and was told any time. Another group of 4 came in and were seated and served before us. I made 3 trips to the hostess and finally we got to order a little after 8PM! What is with that? The food is great but what is with the service folks!!!!

    The food was great -- delicious lamb chops and walleye, with mussels as an appetizer. We snagged a bottle of the Highlander label red wine... very nice. Enjoyed dining on the outside patio. Our server, Karen, rocked! We'll definitely be back.

    We met friends for dinner at the Highlander Bar and Grill and really had a wonderful time. The food was great! Everyone raved about it. The waitress we had was outstanding and the overall atmosphere was conducive to talking and the area is really beautiful. We will return.
