Serbian Crown Restaurant

I happened to drive by this restaurant in Great Falls, and I'm dying of curiosity! Has anyone tried it? Any feedback?

  1. I have been there a few times. It is a very eclectic place, and I'm finding it hard to describe. The menu has some traditional russian/german fare, but also some off the wall type of dishes. They have a lot of game, from wild boar, deer, to bear, and even lion. They also have a very extensive vodka list. They tend to drench their dishes in thick gravy, which I wish they wouldn't do. They make a very good table-side ceasar salad and I enjoy perusing their menu of mixed drinks. Every now and then they have a violinist walk around and play.

    If you're looking for an off-the-wall, interesting dinner, I think it's worth a shot. It's not cheap though.

    1. I'm not crazy about it but my GF likes to go there occassionally for hard-to-find game dishes, e.g., last time she had ostrich. She draws the line at lion, however. I recall that I had a pretty good dover sole.

        Out of idle curiosity, do you remember how much the lion cost?

        1. re: reiflame

          I don't recall exactly; but in the $40 range. They get most of their exotic meat from a specialist who gets meat from private game reserves, etc.

      2. Perhaps lion tastes best when drenched in a thick gravy.

        1. Serbian Crown is full of mystique a neighbor to the CIA, I wonder how many secrets were passed underneath the gypsy music of years gone by.

          I'd go there at least once, just to say I've been there. I doubt if it will survive many more years. They have a decent prix fixe five couse dinner for $42.00 for Sundays through Thurdays. The Zakuska ( Russian Hors-d’Œuvres ) is the best part of the meal.

          Check out thier website as they are offering some coupons and specials.
