A word from Missoula Milton Keynes
Missoula is not a restaurant, nor is it a theme bar, nor a music club or cocktail lounge - but we do all of these elements beautifully.


We take our name from the town of Missoula, within the state of Montana in North America, so our menus are a journey into something new to the high streets of Britain, delicious dishes inspired from 'the big sky country' - Bison, Trout and amazing beef steaks and ribs, coupled with sides such as American style salads, skin on fries and twice baked potatoes.


We offer a fantastic range of cocktails, alcoholic milkshakes, beers and wines - some new flavours, mixed with some American classics, in an atmosphere brought alive by the recognisable sing along melodies or American based music; live or background, and within stunning authentic Montana interior design which creates an environment that is completely new but really welcoming.

Diner Reviews
  • "Super meal. Great service Bison steak is amazing. Great value."
    dined on 15/07/2014
  • "Nice looking restaurant let down by the service and lack of food available on menu. Starter came out raw and cold staff not very apologetic"
    dined on 10/07/2014
  • "Staff were friendly and reasonably attentive. The food was somewhat lacklustre unfortunately. My wifes steak was not cooked as requested and she found it 'fatty'. My buffalo burger was dry, no option on how I'd have liked it cooked and a little gristly."
    dined on 15/06/2014
  • "The food was good, but the service was very slow. It was a Wednesday night and the restaurant did have a few large groups, but it was by no means full. We were a group of 8 but it took us 15 minutes before someone came to take our drinks order and then a further 15 minutes before the food order was taken. The food was then farily quick. I would go again, but would get my drink at the bar downstairs first."
    dined on 11/06/2014
  • "We enjoyed some excellent cocktails in the bar before being shown to our table upstairs. The restaurant has floor to ceiling windows and a glass roof which, on a hot evening around sunset, meant sun glare in our eyes and felt a bit like sitting in a greenhouse which was very unpleasant. The second issue was that one of our party discovered a dead beetle in her salad - the manager was very apologetic and we didn't have to pay for the meal and also received a free desert but this is not the standard we expect from a restaurant no matter how busy they are or how apologetic they are afterwards. The other food was quite good as was the service, but we were all slightly put off after the beetle incident! We shall not be returning."
    dined on 07/06/2014
  • "We decided to come here for the first time to see what it was like, and we were not disappointed. We both had the 8oz rump steak, and it was cooked to perfection, exactly how we'd requested. I have often had steak that was either under or over cooked and had to be returned. However, this was a wonderful piece of meat. There was also a generous helping of very nice fries. Top it all off with some lovely (and original) cocktails, and you have a fabulous meal!"
    dined on 31/05/2014
  • "Good enough starting point for a night out in MK. Staff were helpful and accommodated our request to stay down stairs. Upstairs eating is a food only affair in my view."
    dined on 30/05/2014
  • "I was in need of booking a restaurant on Saturday before going to the theatre and gave OpenTable a quick look. I found Missoula (never heard of them before) and found a number of positive reviews so I booked. It has nice decour and definitely gives the impression that they favour meat, but on looking at the menu they certainly cater for vegetarians as well. Average service but very good food and a lovely spacious dining area upstairs made it somewhere I would go back to. Next time I will try the cocktails, they looked very interesting."
    dined on 10/05/2014
  • "Great decor and ambience, good menu offering steaks, burgers, salads etc. Complimentary popcorn on arrival. Customer service was exceptional. Downside: burgers were small and fries were overly thin and lacked 'substance'. Bison steak was small and insignificant. Superb choice of cocktails with a 2 for 1 promo until 9pm."
    dined on 03/05/2014
  • "The food is really good with too much to choose from (that's not a bad thing) but service was slow. we were left for about 30 minutes waiting to pay, we could've easily walked out but didn't."
    dined on 29/04/2014
  • "The food was outstanding and really good value for money only down side was the down stairs was turning mote into a club as our meal went on so music was loud and allot of chat "
    dined on 26/04/2014
  • "Nice venue, waiters try hard to give you a good experience. Food is very nice, we recommend the ribs and the burger with bacon and cheese. Chips are lovely!"
    dined on 26/04/2014
  • "This restaurant has so much potential. The food menu is great and they have a decent list of cocktails and alcoholic drinks. However the service is very poor. Even though we were one of the only two table dining at this restaurant, It took them like 20minutes to bring our drinks. There were nobody on our floor to check on customers and we are waiting somebody most of the time to give us some attention. My wife ordered a cherry which had a stone in it and she almost broke her tooth. The only thing happened was an apology from our waitress and re-assurance that our deserts are going to be free. General manager didn't not even bother to show his/her face. At the end the deserts was still included in our bill. Had to change it."
    dined on 20/04/2014
  • "Food & cocktails were excellent. Would defiantly recommend."
    dined on 16/04/2014
  • "Rather average all round really. Food ok, service good. Table for 2 placed in the middle of the room! Waiters bustling past on both sides. Not right for a romantic meal. Desserts overpriced and not much choice. Don't think I will be returning."
    dined on 21/03/2014
  • "Nice restaurant. Friendly atmosphere. Good service overall, but had to wait a bit longer than I'd have liked to for our drinks. Had to chase them up with the restaurant manager. Food courses were spaced out nicely to suit the occasion that I was there for, but I'd be concerned if you were going there to have a quick meal and leave as I think you'd end up being there longer than you'd anticipated. Took a while to pay our bill as well. Overall the food was very nice and very reasonably priced compared to other restaurants in the area. Service just needs a little push and it would be perfect. Would definitely recommend it to others."
    dined on 20/03/2014
  • "I booked a table to celebrate my husbands birthday. I made that clear in the table booking and asked if the restaurant could acknowledge his birthday. This didn't happen which was disappointing. The waiting staff were very attentive towards my 2 year old daughter and the manager made her a fruit cocktail to drink which was nice. My daughters food was sausage and chips, but the sausages were over-cooked and way too hard at the ends. My ribs were lovely and my husbands Beef rib steak was melt in the mouth."
    dined on 20/03/2014
  • "a great little eating house thats meets the gap between a burger bar and a restaurant. Dont expect to much and you won't be dissapppointed. The menu reads better than it produces. Don't expect to have anyone meet you when you come in. We were a party of 10, pre booked and waited at the bar for 5 minutes before they even acknowledged us , only to be told we had to go upstairs where we eventually found a server."
    dined on 17/03/2014
  • "Average service, average food, reasonably cheap wouldn't rush back."
    dined on 16/03/2014
  • "Really great experience for our 1st time at Missoula. 2 for 1 cocktails was a real bonus! Great cocktails too! Hanging skewers were lovely, just needed a few more veggies in the side bowl. Nice atmosphere and real value. Great experience."
    dined on 01/03/2014
  • "Felt genuinely different to the usual new restaurant in Milton Keynes. Superb service from very well informed waiter and general laid back atmosphere. Unusual and excellent beer selection and good menu which benefits from not being overly long and fussy. Food quality was excellent."
    dined on 23/02/2014
  • "I went for a meal with my best friend, and the quality of the food was amazing. We both loved sampling the cocktail menu. And as these were on 2-4-1 until 9pm - we sampled a fair few! The waiter was very good and made cocktail suggestions based on our favourite alcohol/tastes."
    dined on 22/02/2014
  • "For meat lovers everywhere ! The food just tasted so good and a great beer and wine list , we even had pudding which again was brilliant , waiter couldn't do enough for us . Will be back again next week in fact and have booked for the week after too !"
    dined on 20/02/2014
  • "Have eaten here 4 times now, 3 dinners and a breakfast, and will keep coming back if the standards remain the same! Food is lovely, the service is excellent and the atmosphere is just right, lively downstairs, with enough music upstairs to enjoy but not have to shout over! My only hope for the future of this restaurant is that they plan to occasionally change up their menu. Love their food, but after a while the choices are going to run out!"
    dined on 15/02/2014
  • "Went for Valentines Day. Perfect meal & good food/drink Will return."
    dined on 14/02/2014
  • "The candle lit table, complete with single red rose and champagne reception was lovely - popcorn while you waited for your starter and a gorgeous selection of food from the Valentines Set menu. I had scallops to start, cooked to perfection, and mouth watering mushroom and chicken with mash for main, to top it all off with the biggest, mouth-wateringly delicious huge slab of chocolate fudge cake. Our glasses were never empty and the waiters were really lovely"
    dined on 14/02/2014
  • "Went on valentines night and had the set menu. The starter was stacked with prawns and the Steak was cooked to perfection. My misses really wanted a strawberry cocktail but there wasnt any on the menu, so the waitress asked the barmen to make a new one and it was delicious, exactly what she wanted :)"
    dined on 14/02/2014
  • "Table was 40 minutes late, we weren’t asked if we wanted drinks through out the meal we had to get up and ask a waiter, food was dry. I would not recommend."
    dined on 07/02/2014
  • "Simple men of waffles and scramblers but great value with free bottomless filter coffee. No kids breakfast menu but my 1 and 4 year old loved the fruit waffle. Breakfasts half price in January. Decor is really cool too. A great addition to the Hub. Classy joint!"
    dined on 18/01/2014
  • "When handed the menu the waiter asked if we were there for a special occasion I told him for my daughters birthday, there were 4 of us, the food was good and cooked beautifully, we all had different meals and all enjoyed them, drinks and water glasses filled if they were empty, after ordering desserts the waiter arrived with lit candles in my daughters dessert and brought a drink from the bar staff with a sparkler attached both making us smile, the food and the service were both great and we will be going back."
    dined on 15/01/2014
  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Missoula, the food, drink and service were outstanding, the staff very friendly and my steak was cooked to perfection. The only thing that spoilt the evening was that the live music was far too loud and we found ourselves shouting to hear each other. Had there been more in our party, I doubt anyone would have been able to speak to anyone else other than the person next to them. But having said this, we will be returning, hopefully with only the background music playing, as it was when we first arrived."
    dined on 11/01/2014
  • "Friendly, helpful staff with good attention to detail. Food was prepared and served in a timely fashion with no hurry to eat to make way for other diners. Excellent range of cocktails and American and Canadian lagers. Plush decor with music not too loud with a nice touch having a live singer downstairs in the bar. A very good dining experience all round."
    dined on 10/01/2014
  • "This was my first visit and I chose it because it had everything from Soup and salad as an option through to main courses and deserts, so whatever my appetite there'd be something to eat. I wasn't disappointed. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed and the service excellent - attentive without being over bearing."
    dined on 10/01/2014
  • "I think shows like Man v Food have taught us to associate American dining with generosity and down to earth, unpretentious dining. We expected such generosity at Missoula but sadly, it was not so. My main course of ribs was tasty but woefully inadequate, and largely hidden by a substantial handful of battered onions, similarly tasty, but hiding the immediate disappointment of the meal. The baked potato which appeared with it was only a half portion, smothered in a tasteless cheese. surely they could stump up a whole potato! My son felt his bison burger was bland. My husband did not mind his bison burger, but then, he will eat anything! The chicken wings (starter) was overcooked and dry, and the chips were soft and unremarkable."
    dined on 09/01/2014
  • "A fabulous meal in a wonderful setting. Cocktails were fabulous and I would certainly recommend the Amaretto Sour! Great service from Alex and the team. See you again soon"
    dined on 06/01/2014
  • "We visited on a Saturday evening, table booked for 830pm. We arrived a little earlier to enjoy a cocktail at the bar and they didn't disappoint! Disappointing that a few of the starters, main courses and desserts were not available - it is a relatively new restaurant and we really did want to try as many different dishes as we could. Live music from downstairs was a little too loud and then later upstairs had its own music but you could still hear music from downstairs! Starter arrived within 5 minutes of being ordered! Unfortunately we waited over 45 minutes for our burgers. Worth the wait though, cooked to perfection and lovely and juicy. Pricing for mains reasonable. Sides, starters and desserts expensive"
    dined on 04/01/2014
  • "The atmosphere at the restaurant, even at 7:30 was great, it was relaxed with a fantastic singer playing downstairs. The waiter was pleasant and made good conversation with us on arrival making us welcome We did however have a bad experience with the kitchen being that more than 2 mains had to be returned In speaking with the manager who was extremely apologetic and offered us the food as complimentary we were assured that the problem with the pass was only affecting our table and in all honesty in what we observed from other tables we were in agreement. I can say that apart from the food the rest of our experience at the restaurant was very pleasant, unfortunately it was e food that was the draw to this restaurant."
    dined on 04/01/2014
  • "I booked a table for my birthday at the new Missoula Milton Keynes this weekend. Never been so disappointed at a restaurant before, there was hardly anything available on the menu, which was hilarious as it was a Saturday night and just opened!? The starter was nice and a fairly big portion, the mains took over an hour to come out, and my friend had to wait a further 20 minutes as they forgot her salad, she had to return it twice as it had ingredients missing! The staff did not know what to do or to handle the situation, lots of other tables were complaining too. The food was mediocre, you can find much better burgers at gbk. The assistant manager tried to help by offering free drinks but the damage was done. Terrible experience, avoid."
    dined on 04/01/2014
  • "Loved our first visit to this restaurant. Great menu, good service, plenty of space and a pretty good experience first time around."
    dined on 03/01/2014
  • "We booked here last minute for 5 course meal. All 5 courses were lovely, they changed the Amuse Bouche to a lovely beef canapé as neither of us liked salmon. Starters were tasty and well cooked (scallops and beef cannelloni). Nice sorbet to cleanse the pallet before a good portion of fillet steak, well cooked with tasty potato crochet and sauce. By pudding we were about stuffed but managed to fit in Creme Brûlée (with rhubarb) which was lovely just a bit disappointed it didn't have a crispy top!! Overall a great experience. Good food, nice staff, good atmosphere."
