Enjoy Delicious, Authentic Montana Dining
Dining at our Montana guest ranch is a family affair, and is often the social highlight of the day. Covered Wagon Ranch is different in that all of us (owners and staff) eat with our guests! This means you can reminisce with your favorite wrangler about your ride that day or talk amongst each staff member at the ranch, as you become part of our ranch family. During your stay you will enjoy a scrumptious Montana dining experience at each meal. Breakfast and lunch are buffet style, as with dinner it is family style.
Breakfasts include a full fare of hearty ranch style hot dishes, complimented with fresh fruit, homemade baked goods, along with lighter foods such as cereals and yogurts. Fresh brewed coffee, a variety of teas, and fresh juice are always available.
If you aren’t enjoying your favorite sandwich out on the trail for lunch, you can find homemade soup, salad, and a variety of sandwiches or main course dishes available at the lodge for lunch.
Each evening begins with appetizers, followed by a varied menu of hearty and delicious ranch style dishes all served family style. Homemade dessert finishes off each dinner.
Friday brings the weekly Cookout with steaks, burgers, brats, live music, dancing, roping, smores and an evening of family fun around the campfire.
Whichever meal, whether it is a sack lunch in a high alpine meadow, or a sit down dinner in the lodge, you will be treated to great food, friendly service, and a true family Montana dining experience – Covered Wagon Ranch style.
Our chefs are very conscious and knowledgeable about food allergies and/or dietary restrictions and special requests. We can customize menus to accommodate almost any specific need our guests may have. Questions or concerns give us a call as we would be happy to discuss this further!
The Covered Wagon Ranch has a BYOB policy, which allows our guests to compliment their meals with the drink of their choice. Many fine wine and liquor outlets are available locally for you to shop on your way to the ranch. With some pre-planning, we can also shop for you prior to your arrival, or you can ship directly to the ranch ahead of your stay. Keep in mind Montana does not allow the purchase of hard alcohol on Sundays. Wine glasses, ice, coolers, and openers are all available at the ranch. Of course, fresh lemonade, ice tea, water, coffee, hot cocoa, apple cider and a selection of teas are always available in the lodge.
