Dining at The Ranch at Rock Creek

10 Years with Relais & Châteaux

Ranch Cuisine

The Ranch at Rock Creek kitchen tells a story about Montana stock, wildlife, herb and harvest. With regionally and locally sourced organic ingredients, Executive Chef Drage’s ranch menus and dining experiences mirror Montana seasonal bounty. Preparation is equal parts mountain tradition and modern palate, often employing a wood fire grill, a Dutch oven or the full array of a state-of-the-art kitchen.

Each night the culinary team hosts a different experiences, which changes along with the seasons. Raise your glass to farm and ranch-to-table cuisine with an expertly paired local draught or regional wine. All meals are included and tailored to dietary restrictions and preferences. A children’s menu is always available.
