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.
Executive Chef Drage
Frontier to Table
Ranch style dining captures experiences like horseback riding through grasslands and, later, tasting Montana alfalfa in the grass-fed beef or wildflowers in a Sapphire Mountain honey vinaigrette. Each night the culinary team hosts a different experience, 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 in our dining venues, and tailored to dietary restrictions and preferences. While we do not offer in-room dining, great friendships have been forged during social hour while reminiscing on the day’s adventures with fellow guests. A children’s menu is always available.
Ranch Dining Venues
Our 5,500 sq. ft. dining venue and event barn boasts a modern expo kitchen and wood fire grill. The custom-built grill facade is made of repurposed John Deer tractor parts, adding to the ranch style flare. Seasonal celebrations and special events are hosted in this warm and traditional Montana setting, often followed by live music and dancing on the circular-sawn fir floors.
Granite Lodge & Patio
A unique lodge with an expertly appointed dining room. The Granite Lodge Dining Room hosts dinner four to five nights per week, specializing in evening multi-course menus, tasting menus and paired regional wine tastings. Enjoy artisan cocktails and gourmet hors d’oeuvres at social hour before you step in to dine by the fire and share tales of your day under the Big Sky.
The epitome of glamping-style dining in the open-air. The Blue Canteen is a hybrid cabin and canvas tent, turned breakfast nook in the summer, made cozy by a wood-burning stove. It’s the hub of Camp Roosevelt, where glampers can stop for refreshments or a s’more between activities and meals.
Granite Lodge Flagstone
Every summer, the flagstone plays host to a weekly Chef’s grill, as well as s’more roasting by the campfire under the aspen trees. The food prepared in the open-air wood fire grill is rich and fresh—a locavore’s delight. At the heart of The Ranch, the Flagstone hosts welcome celebrations, and it’s just steps away from the Great Room Silver Dollar Saloon.
Arrive in the legendary West as you head to Piney Pond for our Cowboy Breakfast on Friday mornings during the summer. Enjoy freshly brewed cowboy coffee, frittatas, and other Dutch Oven delights, with an expansive view of the Sapphire and John Long Mountains.

No. As part of our homestead hospitality, guests are welcomed into our dining spaces like they would be on a friends’ ranch. Great friendships have been forged during social hour while reminiscing on the day’s adventures with fellow guests. Our small footprint and low maximum occupancy is designed to make an intimate, comfortable environment where guests can socialize with each other or find a quiet corner to enjoy their dining experience. Due to 20 of our accommodations being free-standing across our 6,600 acres, it is impossible to replicate the wine pairings or thoughtful plating that accompanies Executive Chef Drage’s unique farm-to-table dining experiences away from our hard-working Relaix & Châteaux kitchen staff in our dining venues.
In cases where a guest is ill or has mobility issues, we will accommodate those needs with in-room dining as needed.
