Located across the street from Historic Rocky Mountain College on Poly Drive, The Granary has been a landmark restaurant in Billings, MT for nearly 50 years! Originally built in 1935, the Granary served as the milling department for Billings Polytechnic Institute until World War II when they closed the doors.

The recent remodel in 2022 breathes new life into a historic building. Accents of rough cut timbers and cold rolled steel run throughout the Dining room and Bar giving the building a modern feel while keeping the spirit of Billings History alive.

    Food, Manhattans, Old Fashioneds and service were excellent! The music was too loud but it was turned down as soon as we asked. One suggestion would be to have soft dinner music in the dining room instead of bar music. Look forward to returning!

    We love coming to The Granary. Drinks and food are fantastic. Everything is served quickly without much wait time. Our server Darian was very kind, on top of our drink orders, refilling water, and very knowledgeable on menu items. We look forward to another night out at The Granary.

    Everything was great. Erica was a good server and pasta was excellent. My one complaint is we ordered wine with dinner and it took 10 minutes to arrive after our dinner was served. I like to pare my wine with food so it got a little cold waiting. We were told the bar was backed up. Maybe there should have been more staff covering bar on a Friday night?

    The food was delicious, and the service impeccable. I understand they recently overhauled the menu. And while I hadn't visited The Granary prior to the menu change, it's clear that they are doing a great job with it. Everyone in my party was very pleased with their dishes. Would recommend!

    The Granary was a delight, a happy, comfortable, cozy ambiance, and truly friendly and welcoming server and bartender. The food was beautifully presented and was generally delicious. One comment on the quality of the meat used in the stroganoff - not tender enough, too tough. The other dishes were delicious….the Gyro and the Poke bowl. Thank you for two lovely desserts for two Christmas birthday ladies and their friend. Very generous!

    Food was exceptional! We are thrilled that Chef Megan is sharing her talents with us in Billings again. We ordered a little of everything- multiple appetizers, steaks, chicken, various desserts, even an amazing vegetarian meal. Everything was outstanding. Plating was beautiful, flavor was absolutely perfect- we didn’t need even salt/pepper on our ribeye and that’s unusual for us and we eat out a LOT. Pricing on new items is more reasonable than in the past. Lynn was our bartender, before we moved to our table, and she was great. Portia was our server and she was great as well- very friendly and thoughtful. She remembered all of the annoying requests I made and brought a pretzel by for us to see because we heard it was enormous- and it is! My only criticism, and its minor- the manager/supervisor guy (while we introduced ourselves to him, I’m not entirely sure how he spells his name and I’m afraid to butcher it) was a little intimidating. While he probably means well, he gave off a less-than-friendly, judgy vibe, towering over us with his computer. We weren’t sure if he was spying on us or the server and neither was necessary. We actually wondered what his purpose was. Overall, we had a great experience. If you’ve been disappointed in the past, give The Granary another shot.

The environment allows for easy conversation and a certain romantic flair. Everything is clean, orderly and interior design is done in good taste with plenty of space between tables. We will go back.

    The food was good but very limited menu. Live crab in the aquarium but only one small appetizer showed up on menu. Only one steak was offered. The quality of food was excellent, but would like to see a fuller menu like the old Granary.

    I told the waitress about my mushy shrimp in my overpriced granary pasta (the totally overcooked shrimp and a few very thin pieces of andouille plus only one or two Brusselsprouts) and she said maybe they could replace it everyone else would have been finished by the time it came out. My sister had the gnocchi and I tried it and is was actually tough and chewy the manager came over and finally said he would comp the gnocchi But not my dinner. Terrible birthday experience and I will not return nor will I ever recommend to anyone else
