Currently, the Tall Boys are making some improvements to the Murray Block Building (built 1910)...
After purchasing the building in November, we Tall Boys entered the structure known as the historic Murray Block Building with stars in our eyes and heads spinning! Excited to begin the repairs, we gazed around the dining room. The Tuscan motif peeled away from the walls, exposing concrete. The archways leading into the banquet hall reflected our re-entry into the restaurant world! Migrating into the bar, we saw dents and dings in the bar-back, no doubt left from the boots of loyal patrons. Ode to seeing them again! We climbed the old stairwell to the second floor of the building where the old auditorium sprawled out like an old blanket, ready to be shaken out and utilized again! We saw it all so clearly: the vision of the Murray Block Event Center and Tall Boys Tavern!
With hopes that the space will bring parties and gatherings of community members and new faces, we are working tirelessly to clear the dust, roll on some fresh paint, and CLEAN (CLEAN, CLEAN) the space previously known as The Black Bull Saloon & Steakhouse. Did I mention that we are cleaning?
The logistics of opening a restaurant are mind-boggling, and I applaud any individual that has successfully done so! It seems like there are compounding numbers of state departments to contact, an endless list of distributors, graphic designers, and suppliers! Nonetheless, we are plugging away, hoping that we will be open to serve our guests by the middle of April!
Located in the Murray Block Building, Tall Boys Tavern offers quality, gourmet food to the residents of Central Montana (and any other visitors we may have)! Offering Certified Angus Beef, our hand-pressed burgers are a half pound of juicy chuck, and our hand-cut steaks are nothing but top shelf! Our patrons expressed their desire for variety, so we also offer soups, salads, and gluten-free options! Guests can substitute any of our burgers for seasoned chicken breast or a roasted Portobello mushroom! We have a unique dessert menu and an exciting cocktail menu for our adult patrons!
