Eddie's is supper-club heaven, loved by generations of Montanans and visitors (it opened in 1944) as a comfortable place to go for cocktails and campfire steaks. There are two halves to it: a coffee shop, which is lighter-feeling, more casual, and with a varied menu that includes sandwiches; and the more serious restaurant, which is atmospheric and has a big-deal menu of beef and seafood.

We like sitting in the supper club if only for its décor: large, handsome pictures of horses, all kinds of them: trotters in action, a bucking horse tossing a cowboy, western horses at work tending cattle. The picture at the back of the room, which has a horse's head in the foreground and a herd of cows in back, is especially beguiling. "We call him Mr. Ed," our waitress said. "His eyes follow you all around the room."

Booths are supremely comfortable, lights are low, and the staff are able pros. Steaks are grand. "Tastes just like that old Marlboro Cowboy cooked it over the campfire," advises the menu. Our waitress told us that the secret of the steaks is not the fire over which they are cooked, but the house's special wine marinade. This seeps into the meat and gives it a special tang, but also coats the surface so the exterior of the steak develops a crunchy caramelized crust as it cooks. The T-bone we ate was spectacularly good. And an off-the-menu hamburger, which has the marinade folded into the meat, was wild.

A place where royal old-timers and a quorum of enthusiastic hipsters meet to eat, drink and listen to fabulous music - sometimes a small trio, sometimes solo piano - at an intimate bar. Customers with a preference for lighter fare have the option of ordering some great trout!

We worked in Great Falls for a year, this was the best steak and service in town. The crew treated us great. We took our clients there all the time. Never had a bad meal. We would drive three hours out of our way to get back there sometime.
