Nice dining

Nice breakfast buffet with a beautiful view. Food was better here than in most places in the park. Good atmosphere for couples or families.

Food over priced. View is wonderful if you get there early and snag a window seat. Ate here two nights. First night wife at mushroom stroganoff and I had the trout. Both were pretty good. Next night wife had bison filet and I had salmon. Both over cooked with stringy vegetables. Would not spend the $32 on bison filet because... More

I had read about long waits and bad service so I arrived right as the dining room opened and was seated quickly to a table with a stunning view. Service was totally fine and the food was great. Keep your expectations low and focus on the view. Get things with huckleberries and other local items like house-smoked trout.

Wait staff was friendly. The food was just average. The breakfast buffet was neglected and some foods were not even warm.

We stopped by Many Glacier Hotel on the way home, only intending to view the lobby of this historic 100 year old hotel, take a few pics from the deck. But we followed a sign that led down a long corridor to this gem of a restaurant and decided to stay for lunch. The restaurant opened for lunch at 11:30... More

A rustic, high-ceilinged dining room with Chinese-lantern style light fixtures, a strange combination, but when this old hotel was built, Asian decor was the rage. Much of the food was really good, but the waiters kept getting orders wrong or didn't bring the food at all until reminded two or three times.

This is an unexpected dining room for a 100 year-old park hotel. Fabulous decoration. Food was quite good (trout and bison) and service was efficient. There was lots of talk about having to wait to get in (no reservations). Might be true later in the season.

Because there is nowhere else to eat nearby, you don't have any other choice. They don't take reservations, so you may have to wait for a table.

We waited for a table close to the lake and are glad we did. They were out of Prime Rib, which my husband was upset about, but they had wine for me so all was fine! Lol
