Fodor's Review

Built in 1910 by Buffalo Bill Cody's chef, this restaurant was saved from the wrecking ball and restored in 1975. Today it's one of the best steak houses in the city. The bar area features wooden ceiling beams, and the main dining room's oak paneling exudes a clubby ambience. In warm weather the outdoor patio is perhaps the most popular place to dine on such dishes as buffalo fillet, prime rib, shrimp po'boy, or jerk steak with mango chutney. The kitchen stays open until 11 pm, later than at most Billings eateries, and there's a piano bar on weekends.
