The Blacktail Ranch Kitchen is the heart of the ranch. You will soon discover that Blacktail’s dude ranch meals are some of the most memorable parts of your stay. We take pride in serving local and fresh food whenever possible. We use tender, lean grass fed beef from our own herd, locally raised poultry, fresh fish, lots of vegetables (lots from our own gardens!) and fruits, freshly baked bread and deserts of all kinds…all the good food you can eat is included in your all-inclusive vacation.
Help Yourself to Refreshments
We have a self-service tea and coffee bar with hot water available around the clock and a refrigerator and microwave. During the day there are pitchers of ice tea and lemonade and a big bowl of fresh fruit.
Our Signature Montana Dude Ranch Meals
Our buffet-style breakfasts offer a wide variety of choices, from freshly baked breads and muffins, to fresh fruits, yogurt and homemade granola. You can also enjoy more traditional favorites, such as farm fresh eggs, sweet Montana huckleberry pancakes, bacon and sausage and home fried potatoes.
Lunches on the ranch are delicious meals served buffet-style and include a variety of salads, soups, homemade breads and a main dish. Ready for dessert? Our homemade cookies are baked fresh and there are plenty to go around!
After a day filled with ranch activities, dinner is always a highly anticipated event. You can enjoy the late afternoon sun with a drink outside on the deck or lawn or come indoors to the comfy lounge and put your legs up. We serve a wide array of vegetables and a big salad bar to accompany the main course. Our chefs prepare a selection of tempting regional dishes, Mexican Fiesta, Asian Fusion or Italian and there is always barbeque, with our own locally raised beef. Desserts range from fresh fruit pies to decadent chocolate cake and they are always delicious.
