Weekend Out in Downtown
There are so many, awesome, local restaurants in downtown Billings that you could go for days without eating at the same place twice. This weekend, though, we enjoyed a couple great places that are definitely worth noting.
Friday dinner at Walker’s
Walker’s has both a bar in the front where you can order off their tapas menu, and a fine-dining section. I’d recommend calling ahead for reservations if you’re planning your evening around dinner in the restaurant. We went on a double-date with a couple fiends, and it was a really nice atmosphere for a great evening. The service is always stellar, the décor is an inviting western/modern fusion, and the food doesn’t disappoint. I enjoyed the Shrimp Risotto, with its creamy texture and enormous shrimp. They also have great daily specials on their menu, so don’t make up your mind before you hear about them – hubby had the pasta special and our friend enjoyed a swordfish special.
Saturday lunch at Uberbrew
Uberbrew is a new addition to Downtown Billings in the last year, and is located on Montana Avenue across from the Depot. They have a great selection of microbrews that rotate, but I’ve been impressed with their pub menu as well. We were with our friends again, so the four of us shared appetizers of Buffalo wings, which are smoked and have excellent flavor, and cheese nuggets served with a spicy mustard dipping sauce. This day I tried the Cheese Crispy, which is a grilled cheese sandwich, coated in panko bread crumbs and fried. Wow – is it cheesy and decadent! Their Whiskey Burger is also worth mention too – their whiskey sauce is excellent!
We really enjoyed our weekend out on the town – the only thing that would have added to it would have been a breakfast at Stella’s or McCormick Café – or even brunch at Lilac! Happy dining!
