Why is it that eating in a good old-fashioned diner feels like going home?  Diners are warm, cozy, casual, and usually serve traditional American comfort foods.  Here are a few in Montana (and there are many more) that you might want to check out.

Betty’s Diner, Polson

Betty’s Diner is Pink! And that is its signature uniqueness.  But the food is wonderful according to many reviewers.  Serving “salt-of-the-earth” American comfort food, with big breakfasts, burgers, steaks and omelets, to name a few items, people make a point of stopping her for a meal. https://www.yelp.com/biz/bettys-diner-polson

Wolfer’s Diner, Havre

The feel of Wolfers will take you right back to the 50s with their red walls and old-fashioned juke box.  You can order a hand-dipped milkshake or homemade fries along with burgers, sandwiches, salads, and desserts.  Reviewers report prompt service, friendly people and great food. https://www.yelp.com/biz/wolfers-diner-havre

The Town Haul Diner, Harrison

You can’t miss this one.  The bright yellow building with the red Diner sign and arrow will lead you right in.  The decor inside is just plain fun with multi-colored booths – red, yellow, gray, and aqua – and a fun atmosphere that is definitely 50s.  Serving traditional breakfast, think biscuits and gravy and cinnamon rolls, and lunch, think soup, burgers, sandwiches, and salads, and awesome desserts. https://www.yelp.com/biz/the-town-haul-diner-harrison

The Pelican Cafe/Railside Diner, Laurel

Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the Railside serves a local population as well as travelers passing through.  With its down-home atmosphere and delicious food everyone says they will definitely be coming back.  Serving what has been called the best hash browns ever, they also have creative dishes like taco scramble, Walleye, pancakes, and specials for every meal. https://www.yelp.com/biz/the-pelican-cafe-laurel

Bernie’s Diner, Northern Hotel, Billings

It might seem odd to see a diner in a hotel, but Bernie’s has all the 50’s flavors you want and the food to go along with it.  Only open for breakfast and lunch, you’ll want to stop in for a real old-fashioned milkshake and plenty of comfort food.  The soft rose and gray decor, and long counter with bar stools make you feel right at home.  You can try the elk skillet, sweet potato fries, biscuits and gravy, and quiche.  They have something for every taste.       https://www.yelp.com/biz/bernies-diner-billings-2
