According to:



It circulated first without any identification of the restaurant in which it
was supposed to have happened, but this version does name the restaurant.
We called the folks at Sir Scott's Oasis Steakhouse in Montana.
They said nothing of this nature ever happened there.



has a similar account:

Specifically, the folks at Sir Scott's Oasis Steakhouse in Manhattan,
Montana, where most versions of this e-mail claim the incident occurred,
tell us that although Jane Fonda has indeed been in their restaurant, she
simply said she had to leave when she was told how long the wait was - there
were no indignant "Do you know who I am?" histrionics on Ms. Fonda's part,
nor was the owner summoned to deliver a defiant "You're never eating in my
restaurant!" put-down. 

BTW, this email circulated in 2003.  It is 2017!  Even if true, it is very
old news.  How about some fact check filtering?

Montana Restaurant


The radio station America FM was doing one of its "Is Anyone Listening?"
bits this morning.  The first question was; "Ever have a celebrity come up
with the 'Do you know who I am?' routine?"


A woman called in and said that a few years ago, while visiting her cattle
rancher uncle in Billings, MT.  She had occasion to go to dinner at a
restaurant that does not take reservations.  The wait was about 45 minutes.
Many local ranchers and their wives were waiting.


Ted Turner and his ex-wife Jane Fonda came in the restaurant and wanted a
table.  The hostess informed them that they'd have to wait 45 minutes.  Jane
Fonda asked the hostess, "Do you know who I am?"  The hostess answered,
"Yes, but you'll have to wait 45 minutes."


Then Jane asked if the manager was in.  When the manager came out, he asked,
"May I help       you?"  "Do you know who we are?" both Ted and Jane asked.
"Yes, but these folks have been waiting, and I can't put you ahead of them."


Then Ted asked to speak to the owner.  The owner came out, and Jane again
asked, "Do you know who I am?"  The owner answered, "Yes, I do.  Do you know
who I am?  I am the owner of this restaurant and I am a Vietnam Veteran.
Not only will you not get a table ahead of my friends and neighbors who have
been waiting here, but you also will not be eating in my restaurant tonight
or any other night.  Good bye."


Only in America, is this a great country or what?  To all who received this,
this is a true story and the name of the steak house is:


Sir Scott's Oasis Steakhouse

204 W. Main,

Manhattan , MT 59741

(406) 284-6929


If you ever get there, give this fellow a sharp salute, buy a steak, and tip
the waitress.  They have ten steaks on their simple menu from 32 oz. to 12
oz.  Toothpicks on every table!


We should never forget our "national traitor!!"
