3 Great Date Night Restaurants in Montana

heart pasta share food Culinary expertise can make an average date exquisite. That’s why I am always searching to find the best restaurants in town. Who wants to go on a boring date with sub par food when you can go on an amazing date with delicious food? There are plenty of foodies in Montana and the eclectic array of restaurants spread across the state living proof of our fascination with food.

If you’re a foodie like me, I suggest you try out any of these great date night restaurants:

Not Your Average Burger

The Burger Dive in downtown Billings will impress you and your date with its thick and juicy burgers and onion rings. The locals swear by the milk shakes, and the meal will be an affordable experience. It might be a good idea to come back later (by yourself) for the garlic parm fries!

A Restaurant with a View

If you’re looking for more ambience on your date, check out the Fieldhouse Café in Billings and enjoy the eclectic décor that has transformed the former rail yard building. Open for breakfast, lunch or dinner, Fieldhouse Cafe has an imaginative menu that caters for vegans too.

Gourmet Food and Romance

For an intimate romantic date with gourmet food in a grand location (the former Hotel Florence), the Red Bird Restaurant and Wine Bar in Missoula is the place to go. On Monday Nights, sit at the wine bar while you are serenaded by the romantic sounds of an acoustic guitar. Each Monday, a different band plays while you enjoy the atmosphere, wine, and food.

There’s romance in the air and if you’re planning your next rendezvous, you won’t have to look too hard. Montana offers a great array of summer date ideas. We’ve gathered just a few:


The Great OutdoorsDisplaying Couple-tourists-on-Hawaii.jpg

Grab your hiking boots and a picnic lunch and head to Glacier National Park, “one of the most intact ecosystems anywhere in the earth’s temperate zone.” There will be plenty of time to chat and get to know your date as you drive across the 80-km Going to the Sun Road, which offers the chance to spot black bears, moose, elk and even mountain lions. The breath-taking National park offers over 1,100 km of hiking trails.

You’ve done it as a kid, but going as an adult is much more fun! Act like a tourist and take a trip to Yellowstone National Park’s north entrance at Gardiner. You and your date can take selfies in front of the iconic Roosevelt Arch, which dates back to 1903. Once at the park, get adventurous and go whitewater rafting on Yellowstone River, take a zip line tour, or enjoy a short nature hike. If you are less sporty, you can arrange for a wildlife or scenic tour with your date.


Artsy Types and History Buffs

If you and your date have a love for art, an art tour is a great date idea. Consider taking your date to the Yellowstone Art Museum or Missoula Art Museum, which have new galleries all the time. Or plan for a day out at the Sunrise Festivals of the Arts in Sidney. History buffs can enjoy a trip to Nevada City or Virginia City, which are only one mile apart, for an authentic experience of what life was like in the wild west. If you both love music, there are so many great summer festivals, such as the 3-day Total Fest in Missoula, Milk River Days and Cowboys Rodeo in Hinsdale.

No matter what you and your date decide to do, Montana will always be sure to offer a scenic backdrop.
