The Best Steakhouses in Bozeman

“Montana” and “steak” go hand in hand, and when it comes to cooking meat, the chefs in Bozeman’s big sky country do it right. While some of our recommendations are just outside of town, they are definitely worth the drive. Each establishment has its own take on steak, so whether you’re a traditionalist or you prefer something a little different, we’ve got you covered. Pay a visit to one of these juicy steakhouses in Bozeman. 


Land of Magic Steakhouse

One of the area's most well-loved steakhouses, Land of Magic draws loyal patrons from across the state. Their menu is traditional, no frills here, just great steaks and sides. Dinners include soup, salad, baked or twice-baked potatoes and a scoop of Montana's famous Wilcoxin's Ice Cream.

J.W. Heist

Bozeman's newest steakhouse brings an air of nostalgia to both the ambiance and the menu. Carefully selected cuts of meat are cooked over a woodfire hearth bringing out the flavor like no other cooking method can. Pair with a classic cocktail, or a bottle from their stellar wine list, and you'll have a meal you won't soon forget.

Steak Oscar at Mint Cafe and Bar in Belgrade


Mint Cafe and Bar

Just ten miles down the road in Belgrade, MT, the Mint has a loyal following and they love to spread the word. The menu has every cut of steak, including a dry-rubbed flank steak. Add a special sauce such as steak jus, chimichurri or compound butter. Pair your steak with traditional steakhouse sides such as French Onion soup or a Wedge Salad.

Stacey’s Old Faithful Bar

Established in 1963, this steakhouse is a Gallatin Valley icon. Thirteen miles south of downtown Bozeman toward Gallatin Gateway, Stacey’s describes itself as a “steak-and-potatoes kind of place”— a friendly, western atmosphere where you feel instantly at home. You'll find classic cuts rustled up Western-style with none other than a baked potato or french fries. There’s nothing pretentious here, just exceptional steaks and good company.

Feast Bistro

While Feast features a broad selection of shellfish, their steaks are just as good. The Butcher's Cut rotates the cut of meat, paired with a sweet potato gratin, seasonal vegetables and a huckleberry demiglace. Or, try their Steak Frites, a 12 oz New York strip with smoked tomato-scallion butter and fries.

Bozeman, MT


Open Range

Steaks at Open Range are sourced locally, hand-cut and aged in-house before being seared in cast iron. The menu includes choices of bison or beef tenderloin from Greater Yellowstone and Blue Creek Ranches, a 16-ounce rib eye Reminisce Ranch, and an 8 oz half rack of elk. Choose a side such as madeira-glazed mushrooms or lobster mac and cheese. If you’re looking for an interesting cocktail to go with your dinner, the mixologists here will fix you right up.

steak with wine and sweet potatoes at Bozeman's Rib and Chop House


Rib & Chop House

This Rocky Mountain franchise is a favorite for steaks in a family-friendly restaurant without all of the fancy fuss. That doesn't mean their steaks aren't top-notch though. Grab a partner and split a Côte de Boeuf – a 36-ounce bone-in, French cut ribeye that's large enough for two. It's a generous cut with ample marbling for exceptional tenderness and flavor, served with your choice of sides like garlic mashed potatoes, squash casserole and garlic mushrooms.

2159 Burke Street
Bozeman, MT


Copper Whiskey and Bar

This cozy basement bar might be known for its whiskey, but its dinner steaks pair perfectly with one of those smokey beverages. Choose from hanger steak, tenderloin, ribeye or New York with toppings like bacon jam, lemon bernaise, or grilled blackened shrimp. It's easy to spend hours in this spot, sipping on cocktails and sinking into comfy leather chairs. 

101 E. Main Street
Bozeman, MT


Ted's Montana Grill

Founded by Ted Turner, this popular Bozeman spot creates classically American dishes centered around a classically American animal – the bison. Ted's sizzles up tender bison and beef steaks that are aged and hand-cut in the restaurant's on-premise butcher shop, seasoned and finished with lemon butter. It doesn't get more simple or delicious. 

105 West Main Street, Suite B
Bozeman, MT


By no means is this list exhaustive, Montanans love a good steak and you’ll find a version of some sort on most menus. Bon appétit!
