The MVR Kitchen

The best steak in Ennis, MT.

Exciting Times for the MVR Kitchen

If you read some of our reviews you'll see that our Culinary Program is often the highlight of the trip for many guests. We take pride in delivering consistent, creative and delicious meals every day of the season. Staying at Madison Valley Ranch you can expect a wide variety of locally sourced courses flavored with Montana raised meats, organic vegetables and desserts made from scratch. Coupled with a carefully paired selection of fine wines and locally crafted beer, our 4-course dinner experience is the perfect way to share stories about the one that got away after a long day fly fishing the Madison River.

July 2021 marked the opening of our brand new 1,500 sq ft commercial kitchen in our Madison Lodge!
