About the Iron Griz: American Bistro

The Iron Griz: American Bistro with scenic views of the University of Montana Golf Course exemplifies true garden-to-table dining with much of our produce grown in the Iron Griz Garden.  

The Iron Griz: American Bistro provides numerous experiences following the seasons. Enjoy the view as golfers tee off during the summer or dine inside of a winter dining dome during the cold season. During the winter months, guests enjoy the 3-mile groomed cross-country ski course just a few feet outside of the restaurant! 
The Iron Griz: American Bistro is part of UM Campus Dining. As a learning institution, we provide educational opportunities for UM students where they learn skills such as hospitality, management, and guest service.



Food is at the core of the human experience, and the social, environmental and economic issues surrounding how we purchase, prepare and consume food touch everyone. Just Eats is about looking critically at our role in the food system and striving to create positive impacts whenever possible. From supporting local farmers and ranchers through our purchases, to minimizing the waste associated with our operations, we’re challenging ourselves every day to help create positive change in our community and our food system.

Welcome, Hailey!

After living in Tennessee and Kentucky for years and years, Chef Hailey has brought southern flavors back to her home in Montana. Inspired by the warmth and culinary talent that she encountered working in multiple kitchens along the way, she has brought with her some of her favorite flavors. She recommends that you try the muffuletta or the Tasso mac and cheese!
