I'm going to have faith that someone fantastic will buy this much-loved Montana café and saloon just outside of Three Forks with the tasty ribs. Seriously. Keep the ribs.

The Willow Creek is the kind of joint that just makes you smile when you roll up to 21 West Main outside of Three Forks. Sort of like a trusted, old friend who can cook and is happy to see you.

It appears this old friend is for sale and I didn't know a thing about it until today.

I'll admit that I haven't been out to the Willow Creek in at least a couple of years, but it seems that it changed hands sometime in early 2019. There's a picture on their Facebook page (from early 2019) of the front of the building with a "Congratulations" sign. The sign says: "Congratulations, Woolzie! New owner, same mouth-watering ribs. Sold by Laura Gilmore, Broker. Re/Max Mountain Realty".

The current Facebook page is titled: Woolzie's Willow Creek Cafe, with the handle @woolzieswillowcreek
