If you want to experience a diner from the early 1900's in uptown Butte, this is it. It's like stepping back in time and eating where the Butte people ate a hundred years ago or more. It's great food, great service, and good prices, but the experience trumps them all.

During our 3 day visit we enjoyed pasties here twice! Once just wasn't enough. These are the best pasties in Butte, filled with chunks of steak, not ground beef like other places serve. And the service is awesome. Friendly and helpful, this is an original, one of a kind dining experience. You won't be disappointed.

Gamer’s is a Butte institution and can’t be missed. Don’t go into the casino (seen one, you’ve seen them all) but next door into the restaurant. From the booths with the regulars to the gravy covered pasties, you can’t beat this old time favorite. Those pasties are made with big chunks of meat and loads of pepper. The sandwiches are... More

We looked In Trip Advisor to ck out what everyone thought of this place...I had a lovely homemade tuna melt sandwich, and since I don't like rye, they were able to substitute sour dough! Yummy with chips ( just Lay's classics)...hubby ordered a house salad with chicken, but it was a bit ordinary, and the house dressing was a rather... More

This place is a step back in time. Looks like the old soda parlor. We had salads for lunch and they were good. What impressed us the most was, the regulars. They would walk in door and the waitress would start walking to the kitchen calling out the order, the regular would just confirm. I can see myself becoming one... More

This area of Butte is where everything financial would take place and Gamers is where people would meet for lunch.. Their pasties are very good and very authentic. These are the meat pies that the miners would carry in their lunch buckets.!

The burger here was tasty. The service was slow, but it was quite busy. Prices could be a little lower.

Don't try to fit in a meal on your 1hr lunch break, service is pretty slow. But the food is good ol' comfort food. I like their omelettes. Pasties aren't too bad if it's a tender batch of meat.
