Montana Dude Ranch Dining

Feel the real pioneer spirit mirrored in your stay at a Montana dude ranch.

The meals at a Montana dude ranch aren’t just food, they are always a highlight and you won’t be disappointed. Guests frequently request recipes from our kitchens and rave about their dining experience.

Your appetite may surprise you! Start the day off right with a traditional hearty ranch breakfast that might include bacon, eggs, pancakes, and perhaps biscuits and gravy; or freshly baked pastries and muffins, fresh fruits, yogurt and homemade granola.

To recharge midday, lunches can range from delicious meals served on the deck to a sack lunch out on the trail. Lunch on the ranch is usually casual from homemade soups, sandwiches, and salads to a Mexican buffet or pizza bar. Ranches are also known for fantastic homemade cookies and desserts.

After a fun-filled day of horseback riding or other great ranch activities, dinner is a time to swap stories and enjoy some camaraderie. Montana style meals are accompanied with homemade breads and desserts and a variety of fresh veggies and salads. Steak cook-outs, barbeques, chicken or fish are common and the dining experience can range from outdoor cook-outs and barbeques to upscale gourmet. Special diets are accommodated; just inquire at specific ranches for special dietary concerns. Each ranch has their own special flare, but while you may forget your diet, you won’t forget the meals!
