Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our go-to spot while on vacation here. We went 3 times now in the afternoons during a weekday and found this to be one of the best bars in Bozeman because the staff are SO friendly, efficient, and fast and the food and drinks are excellent! We always got a nice table near the front open patio that has the right access to an outside breeze without too much sun. We were always immediately acknowledged and welcomed even when the staff was busy. This place has a nice lively vibe even during late afternoon weekdays because there is enough other people around to make it fun, not quiet but not insanely loud. Their food is always fantastic and a good bargain. Their hamburgers are some of the best in town, nicely grilled and great bun with fixings. You have to check out their daily specials. They have fantastic “boozy milkshakes”, all the ones I had were nice and strong while tasty! But the BEST of all are their mozzarella sticks! Had them all 3 times because they are my favorite of everywhere I ever ordered them. These are always hot, crunchy on the outside and cheesy goo on the inside with a nice fresh marinara & ranch sauces. I dream about these! I would come here for the food alone but what makes this the best place of all is how wonderful their staff have been! All nice, helpful, full knowledge of beers and menus, and attentive. You can’t go wrong here for a nice late lunch!

We stopped the other afternoon for a couple of drinks before dinner. Nice place, but nothing special. Some local beer on tap. Music was a little too loud for us and conversation was difficult. Outside seating is available. Little expensive!

Covid Factory. Would avoid! No social distancing . Used to be a great place to visit but would not recommend it at this time.

Having arrived in Bozeman in the afternoon, we were looking for a quick bite and a drink before dinner. The receptionist at the Element suggested we head over to the Rocking R bar for a drink and some food. Wow, were we impressed!

We started with their Tuesday wing special, suggested by our server Lena. They were excellent! Just the right amount of sauce, yet still crispy. Having recently visited family in Texas, we could hardly tell the difference in their barbecue sauce!

Lena offered friendly, professional service and was happy to answer all of our questions about Bozeman. Overall, a great atmosphere in the bar filled with locals. Can't wait to go back for some more wings next time we are in town!

We were in downtown Bozeman for just one night, hadn’t researched where to eat but tried this place. We were not disappointed. Our food was very good (though the fries were a bit cool) , the drinks were great and the service attentive (perhaps a bit too much so). If you are looking for somewhere lively to eat I would recommend it.

The Rocking Bar has been a prominent Bozeman, Montana mainstay since the late 1940’s. The new bar opened in 2011 in historic downtown Bozeman. Historically, the Bar proudly serves as a popular local hangout for Montana State University students, residents, and visitors alike. The Rocking R Bar is a backbone of the Bozeman community and a proud supporter of MSU athletics – a fact made evident by the MSU Bobcat memorabilia sprinkled throughout its décor. We had a great time here and recommend the place.

My friends and I came up from Canada to visit and take in a college football game. This is where our friends took us for pre and post game drinks. It is super busy on these days!! That being said....the service was awesome. Food was good and the atmosphere was super fun. People in Bozeman are so nice and friendly! Kids are allowed in during the day. I wish I would have taken more pics!!

The servers are on top of everything. They make you feel important. I really liked the burger and fries. Everyone enjoyed the sports activities and tvs.

Flight leaving Bozeman got screwed up so went to RockinR to commiserate. Good move. Nice, open-air bar. Cute and professional barkeep, decent drink prices. Can't go wrong by choosing the RockinR.

Heading across country with our adult children, we wanted to spend a fun evening in Bozeman. Wednesday night trivia was a good break from the road. Super drinks - Spa Water with cucumber vodka and lemonade was one. Tasty salsa and chips, good fries. Service was friendly and prompt.
