Stacey’s in Gallatin Gateway, MT
Whether looking for a good steak or a great place to knock a few cold ones back with live tunes, Stacey’s in Gallatin Gateway should be on your radar. For starters, Stacey’s has the kind of character you can’t buy or fake. If the weathered floorboards could speak, they could tell of countless cowboy boots tapping along to the beat over the years and maybe even a few slow dances.
The beautiful back bar is as pretty and distinguished as any I’ve found in the state. If looking for proof of how much history there is at Stacey’s, look no further than the chimney in their dining room. It feels somehow as if it could pre-date Montana itself. Their impressive collection of taxidermy and classic beer signage is also noteworthy. It all blends together to set the stage for a good time and an unmistakably authentic Montana experience.
Speaking of stages, the stage in the corner of their barroom also hosts awesome live music regularly. I’ve had the good fortune of seeing a few of my local favorites there including Chandler Huntley whose classic country voice seems to belong in the space as much as the many beer neons that adorn the walls of the barroom. It’s a great place to listen to music and you should check their upcoming schedule ASAP.
The food is great. Steaks are the star of the show for me, but the French Onion soup is one of my wife’s favorite dishes anywhere in the valley. The soup is the perfect way to shake off the snowflakes in winter and thaw out. They recently pulled my favorite sandwich (the club sandwich from the menu, but I can let bygones be bygones given the strength of the remaining menu.
The beer selection is to be elevated for a honky tonk and runs the gambit of domestic beers as well as an ever-rotating cast of local options. There is also a pool table onsite, so its a great place to shoot a game of 8-ball when the place isn’t packed for live music. Give Stacey’s a whirl. It’s a true Montana classic and a can’t miss.
