Food was Great but pricey

The food here was tasty and the dining room had amazing views of the surrounding mountains, but for some of the dishes it seemed a little pricey and was one of the only locations in Many Glacier to eat. For a more casual and less expensive alternative you can go to Swiftcurrent Motor Inn.

Our dining experience was completely ruined by our horrible service. Our waitress was one of the rudest and most neglectful servers that I have ever encountered. We were also disappointed in our meal which was below average, although expected within a National Park. Prices were higher here than many of the National Park Hotels we have dined at, most likely...

The Ptarmigan Room has recently gone through a refurbishment and is a lovely place to enjoy a meal while overviewing the lake. Food is a bit on the pricey side, but everything we tried was delicious.

We did the Breakfast Buffet at the Ptarmigan during our 4 day stay at Many Glacier. The renovated dining room is very beautiful and the breakfast buffet was very good. We chose breakfast since the lunch and dinner menu didn't have many options for ourselves or our picky kids, we generally stick to more casual dining, but I'm glad we... More

Being inside the hotel provides the same historic and special feelings of the area. Liked the breakfast buffet better (2 choices) than ordering menu selections. Try to sit near the window with the view of the lake and hope for good weather. Staffed mostly by visiting students from around the world, so many conversations occurred. Important to get there early... More

National Park food, got kinda old after 4 days of the pretty much the same food. They could do a little to vary the menu a little. breakfast was great, dinner was barey average. Not many choices.

My wife and I had dinner there last month. The service is decent and the scenery excellent; but the food was disappointing. I ordered their Prime Rib, medium rare. Was dry and extremely overcooked. I ate only half of it; took the other half back to our room and ended up throwing it away. My wife had the bison burger,... More

It is an old, expansive and pleasing space, but not much joy in the big dining room. The tables are kind of stacked together, and there is a lot of capacity--likely because every one at the hotel is pretty much stuck to eat there. Seating is first come first serve. The staff is young, and we found them to be... More

We decided to share a Montana Wild Trout starter and then have a small Montana Prime Rib as our main. Now the USA is renowned for "fast" food but we have never had it in a restaurant like this before. We hadn't even finished our starter when the mains arrived at the table. Our server obviously saw our surprise when... More

One of our finest vacation stops occurred right here at the Many Glacier Lodge's Ptarmigan Dining Room. We were promptly seated with a magnificent view. We started with an Organic Baby Spinach Salad with Trout ($14). The salad was quite large and the trout on top was almost a full fillet. A very generous serving that we split. Just excellent....
