Carbon County Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews

Three of us went to dinner. One member of the party ordered steak and was very pleased with his dinner.
The other two of us ordered the salmon that was on the menu that night and it was not very good. We both usually like salmon very much, but the preparation was pretty bad. We ate the meal, but would not order it again.
I have found that the food at Carbon Co, can be excellent or pretty marginal.
Not too much consistency. Because of the inconsistency, I usually go to a different restaurant for a nice evening out. The consistency of a great meal is so important because the price of dinner at Carbon Co. is very high in relation to quality. Don't mind paying a good price for a good dinner.

I have eaten at The Carbon County steakhouse many times over the years when I have been to Red Lodge, but have not been there for about a year. We were a big group and many of us ordered the pasta dish with the buffalo meatballs. The dish was so spicy that it was barely eaten. Everyone at the table tasted it and we all agreed that it was awful. My Cesar salad was boring and the salmon was dry. There were a few people that thought their dinners were okay, but the overall impression was that we did not get our money's worth. One good note--the deserts we ordered were out of this world--great!

We sat in the bar indoors, a lot of people walking through to find a hostess that was seldom at her podium.
Food was not as good as our last visit a year ago and the service is not as warm. Strange combinations of fruit and grains and sauces and the presentation is not as skilled. We were really looking forward to a wonderful meal. It fell short

This is a good steakhouse with a good wine list. A combination not often found in a community this size. Food and wines by the glass were good quality. We felt a little rushed by servers, but we didn't alter our pace. Ambiance and noise levels were fine. Would have preferred outdoors, but it was a beautiful and busy summer night.

Had a very good steak. Salad and potato was very good. Lobster was tough and without flavor. Basil butter was funky and not great. They did compensate us $20 for the inferior lobster. If Carbon County Steakhouse wants to be 'BIG TIME' then they need to get the lobster thing squared away. They seem like a place that learns as they go, so give them a shot. Go to Red Lodge Ales before and have a real nice appetizer as their beers are top notch.

We were dinning at Carbon County Steak House for our 24th wedding anniversary. We ordered the special for each of us, which was a T-Bone and my wife ordered it Med with pink and it was served well done, they recooked one , but our experience was overall changed from that point on.

new decor and service even better than before.only place in red lodge Montana for an upscale meal, not barfood and a good steak. Ribeye was excellent. Could be slightly thicker for a steaklover and the expense. comparing price and amount to Edgar bar in Edgar mt

We took visiting friends for dinner. The weather was beautiful and we sat outdoors. A musician was playing and singing, so it was a bit harder to visit, but we thoroughly enjoyed the music and the talented singer. The food was great, but one of our party ordered a shrimp caesar salad. It came on grilled romaine lettuce, which did not appeal to her. She asked the waitress if she could have the salad on a fresh romaine salad and she was provided with a large fresh green salad immediately. The service was excellent. It was a bit pricey, but I would recommend this restaurant for special occasions.
Amazing, will definitely be back.
We kicked off a bachelorette party at the steak house. It was a first time for many of us and we weren't disappointed. The service was great - the staff was happy to see us. The ambiance was terrific. The food was beyond amazing! The salmon was cooked to perfection. I can't wait to go back again!
I ate at the Carbon County Steak house the other day and the food was wonderful! World class! Great atmosphere, excellent service and quality dining. I can't wait to come back. They prices are a bit high in my opinion, but well worth every penny. You have to pay for quality dining so that wasn't even an issue. Look forward to dining there again.
When we want a special experience, we always go to the Carbon County Steakhouse because the food is always excelent (our favorite the Cowboy steak) and the service is the greatest. Our waitress was very friendly and answered all our questions. Both her and the man filling our water glasses were very attentive. The prices seem to have risen but for a special occasion, it was worth it.
Wonderful experience in every way!
After the negative reviews I had read, I admit, I was a bit nervous about keeping my reservation. While our table was not ready at the time of our scheduled reservation, the rest of the evening was amazing! Our waitress was attentive and extremely personable and the meal was outstanding. A bit pricey, but nonetheless, very worthwhile and a terrific experience overall. Kudos to Carbon County Steakhouse!
What a gem in the heart of Red Lodge.
Without a doubt the best dinner around! The newly remodeled building is inviting and cozy, unique and real. The staff is highly professional and made wonderful recommendations. There is something on the menu for everyone and the nightly specials tantalizing. Convenient parking in the back lot as well as Main Street. The Front Bar, next door, is the perfect place to meet your friends before or after dinner. A must on everyone's Red Lodge to-do list.
One My Favorites, but Missed the Mark Tonight
In the past, the Carbon County Steakhouse is my go to dinner place in Red Lodge. I can always count on them to have an excellent wine list, great ambiance and outstanding service. That is why my last visit was disappointing. My boyfriend and I, my parents, and friends of my parents went to dinner there, and all but the food was just what I expected. For the most part we enjoyed our meal, but the feature was the Red Snapper. My mother and her friend both ordered it. It was over-cooked, tough, and not flavorful, which is characteristically rare for The Carbon County Steakhouse. They chose not to say anything to avoid confrontation. However, when you are unsatisfied with your meal it puts a damper on the whole evening. It was also the feature of the evening, and features are expected to be the stars of your dining experience. It was almost like they were precooked and placed under a food lamp. Usually 5 stars, but this visit they fell short.
Our waitress was very attentive. The appetizer we had or artichokes with tomatoes and a balsamic reduction with raspberry sauce was very good. Timing for our appetizer, salads and main courses was perfect in regards to having time to enjoy each one. The meals themselves were good, but not quite to the level I would have expected for the price. 3 of us had the beef stroganoff and one had the shrimp dinner.
Beautiful interior. Reasonable menu. One steak tough. All undercooked. Creme brule rubbery. Salads delicious. Frog legs interesting. We found that while the items on the menu sounded enticing, each entree just missed its mark, either in terms of flavor or preparation. And it was all expensive. The ambience was very nice and with the closing of the place across the street, there aren't a lot of options in Red Lodge for excellent dining. With a little work in the kitchen, the food could be brought up to speed, but the prices are still to be reckoned with.
Restaurant of Choice!
Restaurant of choice for the past 15 years within the region which includes Yellowstone & Carbon counties of Montana and Park County, Wyoming. All is good! Specific note is that the service staff is just outstanding! Prepared to serve the needs of the diner always! Recommend visit to enjoy the remodeled dining area.
Waitress and food not up to our expectations
For a pricey restaurant, the food and service were just mediocre. The pasta with sausage and beef stroganoff were not good (flavorless and definitely not "foodie" quality). The lobster mac and cheese was good, but the lobster was overcooked and tough/chewy. The halibut was good, but the tomato chutney on top was not a great pairing in our opinion.
The waitress was a bit snobbish. She had this air about her suggesting that we were not all that welcomed and as if we were inconveniencing her.
Likely your best choice in Red Lodge
As Red Lodge residents, my wife and I dine frequently at the Steakhouse and other of the city's eateries. And we've personally experienced the Steakhouse's rise to the top rung in this small mountain town. Steaks that were only passable 10-15 years ago seem now to be uniformly tender and grilled to the diner's temperature. The seafood selection has expanded from typically two choices to four or five, and prepared creatively. Also greatly improved over the years are children's selection. In sum, there are a number of cheaper eateries in Red Lodge, but in terms of value received for what you pay, it's Steakhouse hands down.
