Glad The Jack is Back. Nothing like it anywhere.
We were married here in 2005. Great Wedding.
Sometimes we camp and sometimes stay in a cabin.
Have been going there for years and love it every time. Missed the Larkin family but they are back and so are the clean cabins , great food and drinks. The drive is beautiful and the destination special .

You will never find another experience like visiting "The Jack Saloon" EVER, ANYWHERE! First of all, it is located 15 miles from the nearest town, Lolo! Second, it is in the middle of the mountains of Western Montana (about 25 miles from the city of Missoula- where I live.) And last (of course I could list a hundred things) it is a log building- but not just any logs- GIANT CEDARS ( the walls are only 4 logs high!) Besides the location itself being so awesome, I have to mention the folks that own & run the place. You will not find more friendly or better service from coast to coast! These people know what running a tavern is all about. They are great bartenders themselves and hire real people who love the place as much as they do. There is nothing fancy or pretentious about "The Jack" (short for lumbarjack.) It is a laid-back spot in the woods with a big yard, a creek, a pond, and some cabins that are available to rent (nothing fancy, but a great value-especially after tying one on with the locals.) The food is simple- grilled or fried- great for stalling intoxication so you can last the whole day or night, but food is not the reason for visiting this place, there is antique logging equipment and memorabilia hanging in the rafters, a great big fireplace and high-back barstools carved out of whole logs (no nails or glue involved-these are solid chunks of wood!) There is even a rope swing hanging at the bar with a solid seat cut from a log! Another great thing about "The Jack" is that you can camp out for free in a tent, RV or camper. They have horseshoe pits, a gazebo, a huge patio with picnic tables, and of course, good, stiff drinks. It is "rustic" in every sense of the word, but if you want to experience a unique, friendly establishment and have a great time, I would highly recommend visiting "The Jack" and taking advantage of all it's natural beauty (and that includes the owners and staff)!!!!!

Pros: Live music on Saturday nights, unique, secluded, great service

MAKE A MEMORY

Make a memory at The Jack Saloon, a place that does just that. It does not matter if you have been in once or one hundred times, it is a special place! Beautiful, historic, unique, friendly, and fun are just a few of the descriptions people use when they describe The Jack Saloon. There’s nowhere else like this! Built between 1972 and 1974 with giant red cedar logs, this is a rustic and beautiful destination. Check out the bar, it is one big, big tree carved for use as a place to serve drinks, food, and, of course, good times. Look carefully at the “squares” atop the bar. Each is unique and you many know or be related to some of the original signers and artists that made them way back when.



“This Must Be the Best Bar In America" - quote from the movie "The Best Bar in America".



Owners, Stuart Larkin and family, want you to make The Jack Saloon part of your memories too. Bring your camera, enjoy the grounds and the Bar/Grill has great food.
