About the restaurant
The Patio at Rattlesnake Market is your neighborhood destination. Slow Roasted Pork, Sockeye Salmon, Steak Frites, Local Grass Fed Burger, Signature Salads & Weekly Specials highlight our thoughtfully prepared menu. Scratch made food is offered with local draft beers and hand-selected wines in a rustic setting...either inside the dining room or outside on the patio (seasonal).
The Patio at Rattlesnake Market, established in 2016, continues a neighborhood tradition that was started in 1997 as Rattlesnake Gardens. Barrett and Karen Byrne purchased the Rattlesnake landmark in April 2016. We aim to serve those living and visiting in the Missoula neighborhood.

About the restaurant
Since 2018, we welcome Chef Philip Guardione and his Sicilian kitchen, Piccola Cucina. Philip cooks authentic Sicilian food which is an amalgam of Italian cuisine influenced by all the cultures that found Sicily as their crossroads. Simple, fresh ingredients authentically prepared suit the local environment of Red Lodge.

At Ox Pasture X Piccola Cucina, we are at the heart of Red Lodge’s artisan food scene, the locally raised world class beef is featured alongside produce and herbs raised in area farms. We work directly with the local farmers and ranchers to obtain the freshest and most seasonally appropriate ingredients.

About the restaurant
Sustainability and creativity have always been at the top of SakeTome’s priorities, and in the seafood business, a reverence for the ocean is of utmost importance. We are trying to be as sustainable as possible, so we search out products from all over the world that share that same mindset. Japan, New Zealand, Iceland, Alaska, Maine, Scandinavia, and more. In line with sustainability, we try to use as much local produce as possible. Our micro-greens are grown specifically for us, right here in Missoula.

Our server Mikolaj was excellent! Very friendly and attentive! We both got the elk sausage pappardelle and it was delicious. We sat outside and it was a delightful evening. Well done Belton Chalet!
