Highlander Bar & Grill is just 20 miles from downtown Helena, across Canyon Ferry Dam at the Norwegian Wood Ranch. Excellent dining in a casual setting, and featuring Executive Chef Eric Wallen, this locally cherished restaurant is a culinary destination with dishes inspired by the natural beauty of Montana. The finely tuned menu features a stellar selection of hand-cut, juicy steaks, fresh fish from Ocean Beauty, delicious pasta dishes and local produce as well as spot-on seasonal tastings for lunch, dinner and Sunday Brunch. Experience hand-crafted cocktails in our cozy western bar and savor outdoor seating along Magpie Creek in the summer months; enjoy live music on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. Come for a round of golf on our unique 9-hole par-3 course and stay in our boho-western glamping tents or cabin. Be sure to visit our 750-pound pig, Brian Bacon, and our Highlander cows, Rosie and Melissa. This is a truly Montanan dining experience with outstanding hospitality!

    We love The Highlander. It's a great local bar/restaurant with excellent live music. The food is always good, nice wine selection and great German beer!

    First time visiting and greatly enjoyed. Atmosphere, entertainment, service, and especially the food. We will definitely be back. Recommend you try it out. It’s a drive from Helena but well worth it.

    Service was awesome. We had crab cake appetizer, a Filet, and the Sea Bass. All the food was very good except for the Filet, which was overcooked and a bit tough; I suspect a lower grade of beef. I think if you avoid the Filet, you will really like this place. We will go back.

    It was the perfect alternative to all of the stress of cooking a family meal for thanksgiving but with all of the home cooked staples of a fantastic thanksgiving meal.

    A casual dining restaurant. Food was thoughtfully prepared and was good. Service staff was attentive. Food selection was limited, but there were choices for most tastes. I will go back.

    What a beautiful place. We went for brunch around 10:00 a.m. at that time we were the only patrons. Felt like we had a beautiful farm to ourselves. It got much busier as we left. Food was great, service wonderful, and it was great fun to watch the neighborhood animals. Nice to have a final meal outside before winter hits.

    Highlander continues to be our favorite lunch and dinner spot. The food is always great and the outdoor patio, surrounded by magnificent mountain scenery, is our comfort place. The new owners have done a wonderful job.

    Excellent staff and service. The location is excellent for outside seating or inside, but make sure you have reservations. Breakfast service on Sunday could've been a little more cost effective, but the staff was very accommodating and pleasant. Dinner service here is definitely worth the ride out to Canyon Ferry. Excellent food! We will be repeat offenders for sure!
