Top 10 Places to Eat – Restaurant Guide Billings MT
There are so many great places to eat in Billings Montana it was hard for me to pick where to eat on my trip. No matter where you choose to eat make sure you try something with Huckleberries! They are the local fruit and look like blueberries but have a milk flavor and are really good!
They put huckleberries in everything out there! Candy, ice cream, cheesecake, drinks, coffee, salad dressing! I tried it all and I recommend you do too! If you want to experience some of Montana at home here are a few of my favorite Huckleberry items you can get on Amazon!
Huckleberry Pie Filling – I have made this since I've been home and it's is amazing get the store-bought crust dump and go!
Montana Gift Crate – This box includes huckleberry syrup, huckleberry jam, and a huckleberry ice cream topping.
Huckleberry Drink Syrup – If you want to make your own huckleberry drinks at home you can get the syrup. While I was in Montana I had a Huckleberry mule, a huckleberry mimosa, and a huckleberry long island ice tea.
Huckleberry Chocolate Candy – I tried some of these too and they are really good!
Be sure to stop in and try this burger establishment who’s a chef was recently crowned the “Burger Champion” at the World Food Championships. Their burgers at the Burger Dive can be ordered a number of ways, but one thing you can be sure of, each burger is outstanding and made with the freshest of ingredients. They also have a number of great sides and delicious shakes to satisfy your hunger and meet your sweet tooth.
While The Fieldhouse might have a simple menu, with only a handful of dishes and entrees, they have perfected everything that leaves their kitchen. This is another one of Billing’s fine dining locations that are sure to hit the spot!
You might not have realized just how big deal biscuits can be until you stop in at the Sassy Biscuit. They have spooned cakes, griddled cakes whipped up into a blueberry cobbler, and pies filled with veggies and meats that will warm your satisfied belly. Who knew comfort food could taste this good?

The Montana Brewing Company is not your typical brewpub with a few good brews and an occasional food truck that stops in. This place is locked and loaded! They have several tasty sandwiches, burgers, pizzas, a number of appetizers, salads and meat options that go great with their craft beers. It’s no wonder they’re Montana’s most-awarded brewery.
