  About Jay and Carol…

After visiting the Madison Valley for 40 years, Jay and Carol Kroner decided to make Ennis their permanent home. They purchased the building at 129 East Main Street, which at the time was an art gallery. In August 2013 and spent the next year renovating. They did most of the work themselves and were always mindful of the rich history the building has had. Much of the original architecture remains which gives the restaurant a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Jay and Carol decorated the interior of their restaurant with an eclectic assortment of furnishings and framed photographs that depict Ennis through the years. It is not unusual to see patrons walking throughout the restaurant discussing the photos. For some, it is to remember the past and for others, it is a snapshot of the Old West they may have read about.

The Bear Trap Grille is located in the heart of the quaint cowboy town of Ennis, Montana. It is locally owned and family friendly. Closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
