Thoughts:  While visiting the Big Sky state, we wanted an authentic Montana steak.  We asked several locals where to go for a good steak dinner, they all said Bull Mountain Grill.  One of them told us, “The Bull is hands-down the best steakhouse in Billings! They make so much of their food from scratch, use fresh ingredients and the steaks are delicious and all their dressings are homemade.”

With a recommendation like that from multiple people who live in the area, we decided to give it a try.

The Bull Mountain Grill is located in a strip mall.  But don’t let that fool you, this restaurant knows how to serve up tender, juicy, succulent steaks that melt in your mouth. 

When you enter the restaurant, you immediately notice the western décor.  The restaurant ambiance is appropriate for Montana with wagon wheels in the entryway and western handcrafted throws draped over fence posts.  Rustic wood accentuates the décor. The flooring is also multicolored wood. Cowboy and ranching photos adorn the walls along with various hides. Each booth is enclosed in a wood fence type area that resembles a stall in a barn.  Beverages are served in Ball pint jars. You get that true Montana feel.

A red, white and blue ornament is on the plate.

I ordered the Renegade Sirloin.  It was a juicy choice sirloin seasoned with prairie dust and grilled to savory perfection with a delectable red wine sauce glazed across the top. The meal included a baked potato, fresh dinner salad with tangy huckleberry vinaigrette dressing, and a roll.

My dining partner ordered the sirloin with sautéed mushrooms and onions on his steak.  It was loaded with tender mushrooms and served with wild rice pilaf and sautéed mixed vegetables.

The steak was deliciously awesome.  The portions were generous and the service was phenomenal! Our waitress was friendly and offered tips for the next leg of our trip. It is easy to understand why Bull Mountain Grill was voted the best steakhouse in Billings.
