IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: Due to numerous comments I have received from readers, I felt it was important to add this disclaimer. When written over 2 years ago , this was accurate. However, as with everything there is change. For some it is good, for others it is annoying. THE SKYLINE HAS CLOSED since this was written.
New ownership, new attitude, new food and new entertainment adds up to
Great Falls newest establishment!
Sitting high on Gore Hill is one of the best places we’ve found in Great Falls! No longer 22,000 Square feet of empty building… it is now home to one of the greatest places to go for food, fun and entertainment in all of Great Falls! Old Skyline opened up it’s doors on March 11, 2009 to a full house! We were there two of the three nights of opening weekend. I immediately knew I loved the place and wanted to photograph and write about it. Owner Jennifer Gruber and Business Partner Billy Johns were kind enough to allow me to take some pictures one morning in April. Knowing this would be the only time that the place wasn’t packed, I took advantage of this opportunity so I could share the actual beauty and craftsmanship of Old Skyline. I have placed them in the photo Gallery.
When you walk into the main level, the first thing you notice is an enormous horseshoe bar. It reaches out 50 feet for a full 100 foot horseshoe bar. There are 11 50″ HDTV’s on the main level providing a variety of sporting events for your entertainment. Read More

The Cattlemen’s Cut Supper Club is a favorite in the Great Falls area. With such a variety of quality food, there’s something for everyone. It’s a great place for dinner whether be it a special occasion or simply a weeknight out.
Bill took me there on our first Valentine’s Day together, February 14, 2008. We have been there several times since, including Valentine’s Day 2009. The menu offers a variety of choices ranging from simple home-style meals to exquisite Chef specialties. The Chicken Oscar is one of my favorite dinners there. There is an extensive wine list, along with various beer and well drinks to choose from. On Valentine’s Day Bill ordered us a bottle of Asti Spumanti Champagne, my favorite, which was kept chilled table side in a silver Champagne Server. This was a nice romantic touch.
I was looking through March 13th’s edition of the Hot Ticket, which is part of The Great Falls News Tribune. The Taste of Montana section is written by Sharon Hansen. She mentioned several choices for St. Patrick’s Day. Cattleman’s Cut was listed and my choice for St. Patrick’s Day dinner 2009 was easily made. Bill had a business appointment, so I invited my daughter Kizell and my 13 month-old grandson Nathan to join me. Read More

For those of you that have lived in the Great Falls area during the past 60 plus years, you have already heard of Eddie’s Supper Club. While many places have come and gone, Eddie’s Supper Club has remained open. Opening it’s doors in 1944, by the Newman family, by which it is still owned and operated. When we called to make reservations, we found out that they offer several choices on where to dine inside their establishment.
There’s a Coffee Shop, that is more on the casual side, a Dining Room, with fancier fare, and a Cocktail Lounge complete with a double Piano Bar. We made reservations for 7:15PM in the Dining Room.
When we walked in, the first thing we noticed was the heavenly aroma of steaks. My mind instantly envisioned them being cooked on an open fire. Until that moment, I had been contemplating either fish or chicken. Read More

A wonderful opportunity to enjoy our beautiful state of Montana happened March 6 – 8, 2009. We had made our reservations a few months prior for a weekend get away for both ourselves and my husband Bill’s parents Wayne & Gayle Daniels. Early Friday afternoon on March 6th, we left Great Falls via Highway 15 heading south towards Helena, with Chico Hot Springs as our destination. Chico Hot Springs is about 25 miles from Livingston, Montana.
One of my favorite pictorial spots on the drive was the vicinity of Wolf Creek. The variety of the topography that surrounds the highway throughout there is astounding. The combination of snow-topped mountains and rock walls going straight up at great heights are beautiful. There were winding semi-frozen creeks all around. No matter where we looked, the view was breathtaking.
Impressing my husband Bill and my Father-In-law Wayne, both hunters, was the bountiful wildlife we saw, especially the Antelope, White Tail and Mule Deer. There were well over 100 Antelope in one of the larger herds we passed, and we spotted a large Elk just past Townsend. After only being removed from the endangered species list in June of 2007, we were all in awe of the many Bald Eagles in a variety of settings. We saw both adult and juvenile eagles and their nests. Both the female and male adult bald eagles have a blackish-brown back and breast; a white head, neck, and tail; and yellow feet and bill. The juveniles are a mixture of brown and white. It takes 4 or 5 years before they reach adulthood. Due to there not being a safe place to pull over at the sightings I was unable to get any pictures of them on this trip. For more information on Bald Eagles visit www.baldeagleinfo.com. We also saw several Golden Eagles.
We arrived at Chico Hot Springs a little before 7:00PM. Read More
