Montana Café Featured In Yellowstone Says Fans Show Up Just For Pictures… Don’t Stay & Eat

Kevin Costner Cole Hauser Yellowstone

Nothing like free publicity, eh?

Maybe not…

If you remember back to Season 4 of Yellowstone, one of the most intense and pivotal scenes of the entire season took place at a diner.

John Dutton (Kevin Costner) and Rip Wheeler (Cole Hauser) are on their way to meet Sherriff Donnie Haskell (Hugh Dillon) when Rip notices something is off.

The café is actually in the process of being robbed when John and Rip come in guns blazing and save the day. Unfortunately, Sheriff Donnie is shot in the fire fight and succumbs to his injuries, but not before he can call his daughter to try and squeak out a goodbye.

John ultimately tells her that her father has passed away, and it’s one of the more poignant scenes in the entire show.

Well, turns out that scene was filmed at a nice little café in Missoula called Ruby’s.

And while you think an appearance on Yellowstone would be good for business, that hasn’t been case. They definitely have had the visitors, but they’re not staying to eat.

According to a Facebook post from Blair Byron, staff at Ruby’s says people come just to take pictures, but don’t stick around to eat… not exactly ideal for the staff.

“I was very sad to hear the staff today at Ruby’s say how many people are coming in just to take photos, not buy anything and leave since this episode of Yellowstone.

If you go, sit down and eat some food! The lunch special today was Pot Roast and it was delicious!”

Local news station KHQ has reached out to Ruby’s and confirmed that this is indeed the case.


C’mon people… help out a small business, eh?

Yellowstone Season 5: What We Know

While it hasn’t officially been announced, we know that there will in fact be a Season 5 of Yellowstone.

In fact, based on what Taylor Sheridan has said about the trajectory of the show, I think we can probably expect about 6-7 season of the show.

The Season Four Finale clocked in a whopping at 9.3 million views on Paramount and CMT (even more with streaming), shattering the show’s previous broadcast record.

Not to mention, they finally got some recognition from award ceremonies, as they received a nomination for best ensemble on a TV show for this year’s SAG Awards.

David Glasser, CEO of 101 Studios, weighed in on the show’s wild popularity in an interview with Variety:

“It’s now an ‘all of U.S.’ show. It definitely hit the middle (of the country) in the beginning and then spread out. And that’s great, because I think there’s still a lot of audience to grow.

What started with my friends in Nashville and Texas calling me, now all of a sudden my friends in New York and LA and San Francisco and Miami are calling. And so I think the show’s got incredible legs.”

And the show’s success appears to not be slowing down anytime soon, with the new prequel 1883 just dropping, along with the new spinoff with Jimmy and the Four Sixes Ranch in the works.

He also gave us a little hint, saying that production for the show is set to resume in May, with Season 5 likely to drop this fall.

With that being said, he truly believes that show is going to keep getting better and better:

“It’s the prime of the show. I think the show is still maturing, and there’s still a lot of story to tell. I know with Taylor, he’s got a lot to say and a lot to write.

He’s deep into Season 5 of ‘Yellowstone’ now. He’s got some incredible ideas that he shared that I think audiences are going to be really excited about.”


But despite the success of the show, and the spinoffs to follow, it’s still all about one thing… authenticity:

“As long as it’s authentic and can be done in a super high-end way. I think Taylor’s approach of authenticity first has really worked well for us and will sort of continue that.

As you can imagine, tons of opportunities have come to Paramount and to us and we’re looking at all of them, and we want to talk to our audience in the best way possible.”

Storylines of Season 5

In an interview ahead of this past season, Cole Hauser (Rip Wheeler) said that Season 4 would set the table for Season 5, and since Season 4 was arguably a little slow, I think we can expect more fireworks in Season 5.

So here’s what we got:

The Governor’s Race

John Dutton (Kevin Costner) shocked fans, and his son Jamie Dutton (Wes Bentley), when he made the announcement that he was going to run for governor on the “wall against progress” platform.

However, we didn’t really hear much about it after the initial press conference. There will definitely be more on that in Season 5.

Beth vs Market Equities

The Season finale ended with Market Equities CEO Caroline Warner ripping Beth a new one over her rather obvious corporate espionage. It sounds like it’s gonna be a BIG problem for Beth in Season 5 and that she might’ve finally met her match.

Could Beth be the one responsible for taking down the ranch? The one thing she’s worked so hard to protect? Only time will tell.

Kayce & Monica

While Kayce was off in the wood trippin’ balls on his vision quest, he saw something that will have dire implications for his future… “the end of us.”

Does that mean the end of the Dutton Family? The end of Kayce and Monica’s relationship (we all know Avery has the hots for him)?

Ultimately, it seems like Kayce is going to have to choose between Monica and his father in some capacity, and whichever one he chooses will be the end of the other.

It almost goes back to the very first episode… don’t forget, Kayce shot his own brother-in-law, Robert Long, after Robert killed his brother Lee.

I think fans are all hoping he chooses the ranch over Monica…

Jimmy and the Four Sixes 

Is Jimmy gone for good?

The Season finale, and really all of Season 4, set the table for the Jimmy Hurdstrom spinoff series at the Four Sixes Ranch in West Texas, but his departure at the end of the season has fans wondering if he’s gone for good now.

However, when you wear the brand, you’re family for life.

According to Jefferson White who plays Jimmy, he still has no idea if/when the spinoff series is gonna happen so it sounds like we might not see that for a few years. Will Jimmy find his way back to the Yellowstone? Seems like it…

In the meantime, if you’re looking for the entire Yellowstone soundtrack, complete through every episode of Season 4, then look no further.
