A Message from Chef Kathleen

I am pleased to announce that Laughing Horse Lodge Montana is continuing to go Global! 
In our 18th year here at the Horse, the practices we have tried to implement -as much as possible providing organic, natural, hormone-free, known-sourced food- will continue with the assistance of groups like and their nationally recognized 5+ Step Program
of responsible and ethical animal husbandry. 

What does this mean for you and that beautiful double-Frenched Pork Chop topped with Kate's Stone Fruit Chutney or that juicy, sliced Chicken breast atop your Rancher Salad? Well, if you're over 40, your taste buds are going to have a trip down memory lane...back to the days when meats and eggs weren't stuffed full of antibiotics and hormones and actually tasted like,
well, meat and eggs.

Working with regional ranchers and farmers through 
our food provider, FSA, we are including as many ethically certified meats and poultry as we can, taking responsibility for our little slice of Montana heaven by ensuring every 'creature' we serve - whether sitting at the table or sitting on the plate, is having (or did have) a good experience.
And don't worry, we're not going to serve your char-grilled, house-aged, Misty Isle FarmsAngus rib-eye
and introduce her as Rosey!

We've been featured in AAA Magazine and Montana Magazine for our commitment to your taste buds!
Gourmet dining is yours at the Horse with Kathleen as your personal chef. A world traveler, who collects dining experiences instead of postcards,
Kathleen's menus blend numerous ethnic influences with traditional western fare utilizing 'farm to table' providers creating dishes
that are as pleasing to the eye as they are exciting to the palate. 
For guests with alternative diets, the Lodge can provide fully vegetarian and dairy-free or wheat-free meals.

Dinner: Wednesday - Sunday, 5 - 9:00pm  
Sunday Brunch 9am - 1:30pm
