At On Broadway, not only do we offer you delicious homemade Italian cuisine, but we also offer you an experience. From the lighting and music to the friendly service and delicious food, every moment of your evening with us will be a delight.

On Broadway opened in the Parchen Building in Downtown Helena back in February 1980. As history tells, the building was the home of many local businesses over the decades. Before On Broadway opened, the space was the home of “Marino & Cavallari Italian Grocery” and “Parchen Drug” along with a small hotel. Mrs. Marino ran the store for roughly 50 years. She had dining tables set up with booths, close to the area where our booths are now, where she would feed local, Italian families.

The tradition has continued from those simple days in the Italian Grocer, and we’re honored to share in Mrs. Marino’s passion for serving the community with exquisite food and service.

Please join us for a unique dining experience tonight!

An experience in fine dining, with fresh food and fun people

"I started working as a prep cook two weeks after the opening of On Broadway in 1980. I continued working here when I was home from U of M on breaks. After finishing my degree in economics in 1985, I returned to Helena and started working for Fergie, the owner at the time, as a host and manager. Funny, I never planned on it. I was trying to find a job within the Federal Reserve but, it was not to be. I took more of Fergie daily duties away from him each year, doing the payroll and ordering all the beer and wine from the start. By the 90's I was pretty much the general manager and the host 5 nights a week. I've always loved this place....."

Patrick has worked at On Broadway for 40 years, and he still loves it. He bought the company in 2011 and has kept the amazing experience, that the restaurant offers, at the same exceptional level it has always been.  He clearly has a passion for people and good food. You'll find him occasionally working as a host some evenings, or supporting the team in various ways. His main role at On Broadway is owner and team support, and his staff can attest to how wonderful he is to work for. In his spare time, he loves sailing and spending time with his lovely wife.
