Highwood Bar

Prime rib at the Highwood Bar. Damn good. Fun historical decor. Nice people. Pretty drive. If you have never been, you really should go. SO WORTH the 25 minute drive fro Great Falls.

And ESPECIALLY when, at the end of the drive, I’m sitting in the Highwood Bar with a huge slab o’ steak on my plate. Perfection.

Highwood Prime Rib

The annual Highwood Bar “slab-o-meat” for my birthday – the most perfect prime rib we have ever had. Absolutely amazing. More on the Highwood Bar – and Piano Jack – right here.
