The Iron Griz: American Bistro with scenic views of the University of Montana Golf Course exemplifies true garden-to-table dining. With much of the produce being grown outside in the South Avenue Garden, you will experience the fresh flavors from entrees made from local and sustainable ingredients.
Throughout the year, Iron Griz provides numerous experiences following the season. Enjoy the view of the UM Golf Course as golfers tee off during the summer or dine inside of a winter dining dome during the offseason. During the winter months, guests may also enjoy the 3-mile groomed cross-country ski course just a few feet outside of the restaurant!
The Iron Griz: American Bistro is operated by the University of Montana Campus Dining. As a learning institution, we provide educational opportunities by employing UM students where they learn skills such as hospitality and customer service.

Welcome to our table, we look forward to serving you!

When we arrived the hostess seated us right away at our reserved table (in the shade). The menu, quickly offered by our server, was very interesting and varied. It was our anniversary so we ordered wine which came right away. Our dinner was really good : blackened chicken salad and shrimp and grits with a crawfish appetizer. Watching the golfers was fun, and of course the expanse of green and the hills lovely to look at.

On a hot Montana afternoon we were looking for a light and cold meal, a salad specifically, and we were sent here by our Air BnB host. So glad we came, we were seated promptly on the porch overlooking a tee and a long scenic fairway. We started with the arugula bruschetta which was quite tasty with just enough toppings for the bread. We had 2 different salads which hit the spot, The Blackened Chicken and Strawberry salads. The strawberry salad came with nasturtiums, which I hadn't had in a long time. The strawberries were quite sweet and was exactly what I was looking for.
Only drawback was the golf carts which stopped right in front of the patio area, but were only there for a few moments as the golfers grabbed something for their round from the walkup window.
All Covid-19 precautions were adhered to and made me feel as safe as possible.
Great job UofM!!
