Took some friends to Montana
Took some friends to Montana Ale Works for a Saturday night dinner. Its one of the few OpenTable restaurants in Montana. Great food and service. We all had a good time. I especially commented the day after that the menu was nicely varied and well priced.

Don't Miss It!
Very interesting and varied menu. Everything our group of six ordered was excellent. Appetizers were appealing and sufficient to share. Very enjoyable experience! Beer selection especially outstanding...Montana State University students were there in force!

Great for what Ales you.
Ale Works consistently delivers outstanding food and service. Try the tenderloin, it is one of the best steaks served in Montana! Get there before 6 PM and get great appetizers for a great price!

Don't bother making a reservation.
We had made a reservation far in advance via Open Table at Montana Ale Works for 8pm the night we arrived in Bozeman. When we checked in they had our reservation and took us to a side room away from the fantastic main dining area in the refurbished train station. Our table was the only 2 top in that area, the rest were large groups of 8 or more, and we were stuck in the back of that room. We expressed our displeasure and were told that this was the only room used for reservations which meant no one with a reservation could sit in the main dining area. We told them we did not want that table and had to put our name on the waiting list for another table. We ended up waiting at the bar and had a great time. The food and service were great.

Loved MT Ale Works!
Excellent service and food. Next time we'll reserve the entire grill room for our group party so that we don't have to share it with other diners.

our waitress was fantastic,
our waitress was fantastic, guests from England had bison & raved about the dish. Halibut was delish as well. We had a micro-beer fan in our group and he enjoyed several good beers. They should have a sampler tray of the beers. Good evening.

We saw reviews on TripAdvisor and got the hint that it is best to get a reservation if possible. We made the reservation and were happy we did. The bar was hopping. There were about 10-15 people waiting to be seated in the bar. When we reported in and showed them our open table reservation we were seated within 10 minutes. the reservation area is closed off from the bar area so it is quieter. Tables are covered with linen tablecloths and the service was personalized and excellent. The waiter new details about the dishes and made recommendations. My husband ordered Guinea Fowl confit with chantrelles on a bed of baby greens with beet reduction. I had steak. Both were excellent. Loved it.

A fab place for dinner. My husband and I are foodies. And when I had the occasion to meet james beard in San Francisco years ago he inquired how my dinner was, I told him not that great but when we walked in the restaurant and saw him I knew all the chefs were preparing for him and the dishwasher was probably cooking for us...I have been taking cooking lessons for 40 years and usually the best dinners we have had are what we fix at home. We had the best filet of beef we have ever had at any restaurant....chicken curry soup wonderful. And divine desserts....it is a fun place...nothing stuffy or hautey.. A great dinner and I will certainly return....now as james beard said, "when u r paying for good food u should receive quality" and we did.

We had a fantastic dinner at Montana Ale Works on Tuesday August the 20th, 2013. We had reservations and although they were incredibly busy, our wait staff and food were both excellent! I had the steak special and it came out quick and delicious! Drinks were well priced and will definitely come here every time we are in Bozeman!

Ideal Place to Dine & Wine
We're visiting from Homestead, Florida. The first time we visited, note was taken that most of those being seated had made reservations, nonetheless, we had no phone service so that was out of the question. However, despite us not having reservations, we were recognized, and attention given during our wait. We discovered while looking on line, reservations could be made without the means of either a land or cell line provider. We booked our dinner for 9:45pm, we arrived about 20 minutes early and sat within 2 minutes. I wish to recognize those for the greatest and outstanding service we received on 9/9/2013 table 17/1 @ 8:56pm 7/70050 our first visit to Dug and on 9/14/2013 table 5/1 @ 9:36pm 6/60049 our second visit to Amy.

great food and choice of beers
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here - in fact, it was the best of our week in WY and Montana. I had the paella special which was absolutely fabulous, my husband had the shepherd pie which he thought was great. Excellent server who helped choose beers for us. The only issue is that it is NOISY, so if you like to be able to talk to each other without yelling, go into the side room by the hostess.

The Ale Works Always Rocks
Took some business associates out on Sunday evening, first time in Bozeman. Impressive meal, great service. Ale works is a staple on our dining circuit.

My go to restaurant
The food specials they offer are awesome and so is the regular menu. The burgers are great. Have had burgers there five times before and every one has been amazing. I have had just about everything on the menu there and the only thing I would not order again is the mac and cheese, it just wasn't of the same quality that the rest of the food they offer is. I usually go later in the night on a Friday for dinner, order a scotch to start then pick one of the many beers they have and order food. It's the specials that get me to come in, I check the specials online and if there is something that stands out (usually at least two items) then I go. The bar/high tables are a little noisy but the grill room is not noisy at all. 4.5*
