About Rumour

At Rumour Restaurant we strive to bring together caring, warm, and intelligent people who love to serve.  We welcome you to enjoy contemporary American cuisine, warm hospitality, and unparalleled service.  We are all about fresh, local, and sustainable.

Rumour is a popular dining destination for both locals and tourists alike.

We are centrally located in Missoula’s emerging mid-town neighborhood with a beautiful outdoor patio. We offer seasonally inspired dishes, locally sourced when possible, and committed to sourcing wild caught, sustainable seafood. We use a large selection of organic food products, and we offer a broad, diverse menu.

Our Chef and cooks prepare all of our sauces, stocks, soups, pastas, pizzas, desserts, and more from scratch using only the freshest ingredients.

We offer innovative vegetarian, gluten free, vegan, meat and seafood dishes.

John and Colleen are Montana natives who believe that sitting down for a meal is more than just fueling your body, but also an opportunity to create a lasting memory with family or friends. Their values are simple, just always try to do the right thing, be humble, and kind. We strive to do this every day with our employees and our guests. We have the best employees around, and our goal is to greet and serve our guests as they are friends coming into our home.

Our design is a  blend of rustic and modern which provides a comfortable stylish, fun ambiance.

We have plenty of free parking available. The entrance can be found on the North side of the building which is most convenient to our parking.

At Rumour, you'll get more than a great culinary experience.....You'll get the perfect night out!

Wine on Tap

This is something so new that most of you probably haven’t even heard of it before.  Welcome to Rumour, and the way we roll!  There are many benefits of having wine on tap, from environmental friendliness to wine quality.  There are 26 bottles in a keg, so we aren’t throwing 100’s of empty bottles into our landfill.  During the course of its lifetime, a single keg reduces the wine’s carbon footprint by 96% compared with traditional glass bottles.  With wine on tap, you never have to worry about an open bottle decreasing in quality and losing flavor profiles.  Wine in keg stays fresh, from the first glass to last.  There is no oxidation, no corkage, no spoilage.  You are engaging in a new thing just by sitting down in our restaurant.  We have 29 premium wines on tap.  You can buy a refillable growler and fill it each time you come back instead of tossing a bottle into your garbage bin.  And the green aspect is pretty awesome!  Together we are moving towards change.  Cheers!
