Carbon County Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
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.
Love this place!
CCS has turned out to be our go to spot for special occasions & we drive up from Powell to enjoy an always delicious meal - we love the stroganoff and the mocha hazelnut pie special was out of this world!
Very good all around. Bring back the Salmon Straw appetizer. Those were good.
Still the best restaurant in Red Lodge
Expectations are high with reputation and previous experiences. Service and overdone steak was disappointing. Last year valentine menu and aps was fabulous !
Valentine's Day Dinner
We had an excellent romantic dinner here. Great steaks, good wine list, and excellent atmosphere. They were out of the wine we ordered so the manager upgraded it to a more expensive wine for the same price.
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!
Great restaurant with good drinks, great food and staff.
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.
Tuesday night Mussel night is always a hit..
Mussels were better than normal! Which is hard to beat!

We come to Red Lodge a couple of times a year. We don't come to the steakhouse often though because of the price. Our go to restaurant went out of business so we chose this one. Food was great! Yum!
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.
More quality food needed
The food taste and quality did not fit the price. We have dined here numerous times and had three times better food off their regular menu.
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.
Overpriced. Steak was tough and no flavor
Very nice place but three of us ordered ribeye at $38 and it was very tough and no flavor. Also - Caesar salad was bizarre, who chars lettuce? Dressing was so scant not sure but not very flavorful.
Love this restaurant
We have been here many times and always impressed. The only negative with this trip would be the mussels. They were overcooked and lacked the seasoning we are used to. On an positive note the berry/cherry creme brûlée was to die for!
Group Dinner Party
Excellent quality beef and very good seafood for Montana. Side dishes were nothing to write home about, but were pretty good. Appetizers were all great! WIne list was good, too.
All four of our meals were saturated in salt, almost inedible ! Its like the chef just poured salt over each plate that was served. Recommendation to restaurant is please stop salting your food it would be way better without, couldnt enjoy the stakes for too much salt.
Good food but A little overpriced!
The food tasted excellent! Just not sure the steak was worth the high price tag! All 3 of our steaks were cut extremely thin and at least a 1/3 of it was fat! It was cooked to perfection and tasted really good just not the cut of meat we would expect for $38. We used to drive and try to get to the Carbon County Steak House a few times a year at least. But made the comment last night this would probably only be a once a year thing for a special occasion for this price!
I ordered my steak medium. I received it, it was the smallest tenderloin I'd been served. It was supposed to be 5 oz but it was smaller and overcooked. I was brought another steak, it was decent size but was medium rare. Management never checked on my steak like most restaurants do. Our server was excellent though.
I Diamond in the Rough
My companion and I were traveling through the Mountain West and saw a few good reviews on this steakhouse. We thought, what better place to get good beef than in Montana and we weren't disappointed. We were about an hour early for our reservation and they still got us a table with no fuss. Had an outstanding waitress which just heightened the experience. For good dinning in a funky Western town you can't beat this place.
This is a must stop everytime we are in Red Lodge.
Fresh mussels on Tuesdays are absolutely delicious. ( Be sure to reserve your order because they do run out due to their popularity.) The staff is pleasant, welcoming, attentive and efficient. Don't miss out on this little gem
CC Steakhouse is great outside dining if weather permits!!!!! Inside is a good "seat" during the winter. Great food, drink & staff!!!!!!
delicious food surpassed by service
Arrived early for our reservation and host happily accommodated us. Outdoor dining area was nicely done but we opted for the inside dining room. Can tell a restaurant is nice when locals patronize it. Salad nothing extraordinary but house dressing was excellent. Husband's steak was delicious, my trout was dry and overlooked. Our waitress was phenomenal - truly seems happy to have her customers and went above & beyond to welcome us. Definitely come here for the beef!
I eat here often, had the best meal ever this last time! Great service! Thanks for a great dining experience!
Don't plan on returning
We took out of town guest and were expecting excellent food and service. We were disappointed and embarrassed. The food and service were marginal at best and not what you should expect from a nice restaurant. We are not planning and returning and definitely would not take guests there again.
Cowboy Coffee Steak???
The cowboy coffee steak was not prepared like it was in the past. The service was average but not worth the menu prices.
Terrible food and service!
Horrible food, mentioned it to two employees and all they could say was "sorry, we are really busy"! We didn't eat the food after paying a 291.00 bill, left and went across the street to the Bridger Kitchen for fantastic food! Would never go back!
A great place to dine!
The service was excellent and the food was great. We have dined there several times and have always had a great experience. Will definitely go back in the future.
Slow service; mediocre food.
Everything about this experience was slow. We waited to be asked about drinks, waited for appetizers, the salads were slow coming out and then we had 15 minutes between salads and entrees. The salmon and shrimp were overcooked. Our sons had lobster mac and cheese and the beef stroganoff. Both reported they were nothing special. The deserts were great, but we almost left before having them because we were tired of sitting. For the money, it's just better to find pub food in Red Lodge.
Great food, nice setting, relaxing dining experience.
GREAT PLACE FOR OLD FRIENDS
Two of my girlfriends and I had a "kindergarten reunion" in Red Lodge for 3 days. We have know each other for 51 years . While we are all Montana natives, I am the only one still here. One came from Oregon, the other from Maryland. We rented a cabin by Rock Creek and just enjoyed Red Lodge. We wanted to have a nice dinner celebration one night, so I chose your restaurant for us. What a great choice! The staff was awesome...so very friendly and accommodating...not to mention fun too! And the food was great! Thank you for making our reunion extra special. And since I live in Billings, I will definitely be back!

The food and setvice wrre boyh great. The best mussels I've had anywhere.
Consistently excellent food!
Yes, they have perfectly done steaks, but also mussels, shrimp, and usually a catch of the day. The food is always excellent.
Great Service, Fairly Good Food
Our server was very enthusiastic and friendly, and she provided great service. The elk medallions had a good house-made raspberry sauce, but there was quite a lot of it so it became the main feature rather than the meat. A couple of the medallions were a little over-cooked (ordered medium-rare), but the others were right on. The baked potato with real bacon was great. The wine selection was very good, and the decor was pleasant. The host and server were both very friendly people. Overall good experience, and would try again.
cold baked potato, gristly steak, bare table
prices high, no tablecloth, tough steak, cold baked potato, outside dining not open on beautiful night
