Dynamic and innovative cuisine

The dining experience at the green o is a singular culinary journey. The Social Haus restaurant, bar and lounge, exclusive to green o guests, is just a short walk from each Haus. Take in the sights and smells as you watch chefs prepare nourishing meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Gather and enjoy craft cocktails and fine wines while taking in the vast Montana landscape and famous Big Sky.

Cuisine that engages the senses

With menus that change frequently, sometimes daily, the green o kitchen serves small, shareable plates, nourishing entrees and artful desserts. Meals are focused around creative and healthy ingredients and offer a rich variety of seasonal favorites, from brioche French toast with huckleberry compote to dry-aged bison ribeye and whole-roasted rainbow trout. All delicately prepared.

Live-fire cooking

Taking full advantage of our Western heritage, the green o showcases an open kitchen centered on live-fire cooking. Dramatic flames kiss ranch-raised meats and grill them to juicy, fall-off-the-bone perfection. Expect tangy sauces and lip smacking spice rubs. This is so much more than your typical barbecue; it’s theater for the hungry, sustenance for the soul.

Locally raised, foraged and farmed

Located within the greater, 37,000-acre Paws Up Ranch, the green o culinary philosophy can be summed up in four words, “Cook locally, cook sustainably.” We’ve built strong ties with the surrounding agricultural community and foraged the finest local ingredients. It’s an inspiring place for our chef and his staff, with culinary riches that include cherries, wild chamomile, elk, beef and even unexpected flavors like Douglas fir tips.

Just down the road, bountiful options

Guests at the green o are invited to discover other dining options available at the Ranch. Not far beyond our gates, at The Resort at Paws Up, you’ll discover the more formal Pomp restaurant, Trough with its delight-filled Ranch Table and Tank with its exquisite drink menu. The Resort, often in partnership with the green o, also hosts culinary events throughout the year featuring award-winning visiting chefs, vintners and spirits experts.

Executive Chef Brandon Cunningham

“I like an approach of small, thoughtful plates curated almost to the person.”

Not surprisingly, the green o’s executive chef was well on his way to stardom in foodie-centric Portland, Oregon, when he was convinced to bring his skills to Montana. He credits his tenures with live fire legend Chef Jason French at Ned Ludd, pasta guru Chef Matt Sigler at Renata and El Bulli veteran Chef Sunny Jin at The Resort at Paws Up for his diverse culinary background. At the green o, Cunningham sees a “juxtaposition of elegant presentations with primitive live-fire cooking.”
