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.

The food was excellent. The service was timely and friendly. The atmosphere was very welcoming. We had blue burger, chicken alfredo, chicken pot pie and all meals were excellent. We also had the stuffed pretzel as an appetizer which was great. Plenty of parking.

The place was packed. The owner is a retired Marine. I had to support my military brother. This is a cool place with a bunch of memorabilia around the restaurant. I sat at the bar where the staff took good care of me. They have...us fast service and paid much attention to us. Constantly filling our glass with new drinks. I ordered the French dip with Beer battered french fries. The fries were amazing. Nice and crunchy. Great flavor. The sangawich was good with nice aju. Everything was better than expected. I will be coming here again. I recommend highly.More

The atmosphere was wonderful. Nothing cooler than being associated with military. 1st issue I had was them asking me for my phone number. I dont give it to ANYONE unless we are friends., I will sit right here and you can call me when my...table is open. She didnt like the fact I didnt want to give it to her. Not a nice look. Our waitress was wonderful, very happy upbeat and fast. The food was average and overpriced. $3 for a slice of cheese? Really? I ordered my son a kids burger and fry's. I swear his burger was bigger than mine. He definitely got more frys. How is that his is cheaper? hmm The burger was just ok. I have better tasting burger from the grocery story. So lets compare. I ate a burger at BW Blacksmith Butte, best dam burgers, real angus beef and you get 2 paddy's and not one and the price a buck cheaper.More

*Disclaimer-we stayed in July 2022, but I kept getting busy with life and kids and kept forgetting to review, but they deserve the good review. Marked as Sept 2022, but we were there in July, early August. This place was so cool! We loved all...the decor and even though we came at a fairly busy time, we got in quickly. The food was really delicious and the service was excellent. There were a lot of options on the menu so everyone should be able to find something to eat. We plan on coming back when we come back out to Montana!More

Excellent food!! We knew it had to be good when a line was waiting for them to open at 11:30am. It did not disappoint. The server also had an allergy cheat sheet on him and double checked with the kitchen to ensure the pizza was...safe for my son with anaphylactic food allergies. A great find on out quick trip to Bozeman!More

Buffalo wings were doused in salt to the point where I had to rinse the chicken off without getting a headache. Daughters chicken pasta dish was also over seasoned and she left more than half the serving. Rest of the dishes were so-so, such as...the artichoke dip. Disappointed. We've eaten here sporadically for years and we felt that it was slowly declining, but felt we could give it another. Hope they turn it around.More

Our family had dinner here and we were all happy with our meals. The service was good, the food was great and the restaurant was clean. I'd recommend this place to anyone looking for reasonable American food.

Excellent food and atmosphere. Travis was fantastic! He had excellent recommendations and knew the menu like a legend. Party of 11 with a rating of our party of 9 to 10/10 from all. Cheese pizza, pulled pork sandwich, carne asada, to pot pie...,all were excellent!...Many, many beers and wines on tap. If you are looking for a great place to eat, you need to eat here. Huge American flag on the wall and gigantic fireplace in the middle of the restaurant. The place was busy.More

This was our first stop after a very long plane ride. The steak and vegetables were so tasty. The French onion soup was to die for! We loved the patriotic atmosphere!

We were in Bozeman to go to the Museum of the Rockies. After we finished there, we were hungry. We decided to "test drive" Sidewinders - we had never been there. We were seated quickly and our waitress Aimee was there shortly after we were...seated. Aimee told us about some of the items on the menu, the pretzel and the french onion soup. We all decided what we wanted with some input and/or questions from Aimee - she was VERY friendly and helpful! Our food was really good. I had the potstickers. When they came out, I was a little unsure as they did not look like potstickers I'd previously had. But, I'm on vacation so I shrugged my shoulders and dove it. I think the best way to describe them was YUM! Usually they have some soy/ginger sauce - these didn't. They had some other sauce on them, and it was SO good! My family of 5 left happy with our food, full, and really happy with Aimee. I can tell you that I will mention this place to probably every single person I speak to for the rest of my life - and every person will also hear about Aimee! Thank you for a really good meal. And thank Aimee for her service. She was fantastic!More

By far my most favorite restaurant in all of Bozeman, good food, good prices, and great employees. I have to admit it wasn’t my favorite French onion soup because it was a little too sweet but it was OK. I love that they had a...POW table when you walk in the door. It is veteran owned and I could’ve been more happier about my patriotic choice. I WOULD RECOMMENDMore

The food was subpar. Daughter ordered a burger and mashed potatoes. She said the burger was incredibly dry and the potatoes did not taste good. I ordered the pesto chicken sandwich and the meat was also very dry. Neither of us ate much. Thankfully we...also had spinach and artichoke dip which was excellent! Service staff was kind and good. Atmosphere is nice.More

The food was fine but it’s a little frustrating that we had old menus with old prices. Prices are up two dollars per sandwich which is understandable in today’s economy but throw away the old menus. Still a great place for lunch or dinner.
