Dismal. Except for one waitress we encountered poor and often rude service, currently only 3 beers on tap and the bar stank of stale beer. Food was good last year, but this year, not so much. We shall not be staying again.
Read several reviews and had high hopes. Started with the onion rings as an appetizer, indeed very generous portion for the price, however super greasy and the onions had no flavor at all. One of us ordered the special, BBQ Roast Beef, Bacon, aioli, etc flatbread sandwich. It was super sweet and just not interesting, could only taste very sweet BBQ sauce. I had the Jerk Chicken on fry bread, served with red cabbage slaw, yoghurt dressing and a home mode relish, etc. The whole thing was soggy which ruined the fry bread, besides some jerk spices the chicken was not seasoned and again the taste was sweet and not interesting. Having it served in a plastic basket with a piece of paper didn't help either; it just did not look appetizing. The gal who served us, I think she was the owner, was very friendly and I think they try very hard and have some interesting ideas but someone need to really work on the flavors and presentation. Please taste, taste, and taste before you serve anything. I would rather see 5 or 6 really good dishes on the menu then 3 pages of mediocre food.
This place is a joke. It makes pretense at being an establishment of fine dining but their quality of food is lower than my appetite after smelling their seafood fettuccine. The seafood smelled rancid, the prime rib weight was calculated on the bone and resulted in paying twice the price for half the meat, and the fact that they pack you in like sardines with a pathetic little salad bar in the corner you can barely get in and out of... save your money.
Stopped by James Bar with a small group and was blown away by the rude female bartender. I lived in NYC for years and have traveled all over the world and never came across such rude service. It is so sad and disappointing to experince it in a great town like Missoula. Lighten up and get over yourself James Bar Bartender. We'll take our business elsewhere.
