A restaurant will last a long time if you make delicious food and have a solid stream of customers

Montanans love food. We love breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

You could be in Montana's largest city or a town of fifty people and can find a hidden gem of a restaurant locals dine at daily. Most of these restaurants serve American fare, but it's still tasty.

The Sip N' Dip is a legendary spot known for its fun atmosphere and delicious food, but they are known for their live mermaids behind the bar since 1962.

Is it the most historic restaurant in Montana?

There are a few other restaurants in Montana that could rival this decision.

There is the Pekin Noodle Parlor in Butte. They are the oldest Chinese restaurant in America and have been around for over 100 years.
