Nice view, ok food

The view from the dining room is fabulous. We were able to watch sunset our first night there. The food service was ok, a little slow. Our server was awkward when interacting with us. The salmon was ok, a little over cooked and the bison tenderloin was decent, but very small. We also had breakfast... read more

The window seat is unlike any you have ever had . Dining on the shore of Swiftcurrent Lake with the Rockies in the background ... GREAT! Food here is good for National Park fare . I had Prime Rib and it was tasty . Nice atmosphere and relaxed dining experience . If you are in a hurry , eat elsewhere.... More

This is the best restaurant in Glacier National Park. The view is spectacular. The restaurant is beautiful. The service is excellent. The food is delicious. The bison tenderloin and the other entrees that we had were great. They don't take reservations and it gets crowded, so go early or be prepared to wait.

Wonderful breakfast buffet for a very reasonable price. Loved that they offered whole grain waffles, French toast, and lots of other choices.

We had dinner here one night while staying at Many Glacier Hotel. The service was excellent, and the food was suprisingly good. Best I have ever had at a national park. Pricey, but worth it.

The food here is OK, but we expected more. Nice rolls, average entree. Good, fast service. High prices for what you get.

We had two breakfasts and one dinner at this restaurant. The view and dining room are beautiful and we were lucky enough to be seated by the window on all three visits. The breakfast staff was attentive and the buffet was fine. The dinner staff wasn't as good and while the food was OK, the portions were small given the... More

We had a nice breakfast buffet in a beautiful setting. We have eaten in many national parks and this was one of the nicest dining rooms we have eaten in. It was nice and clean and did not have that "camp mess hall" atmosphere. The breakfast, service and view were a good value for the money. The server even brought... More

We just spent four days at Many Glacier Hotel and dined in the Ptarmigan many times as this was the only restaurant at the hotel and nothing else in the area. It was good food and a great staff, but it was pretty expensive. Definitely request a lakefront window table.

I sure wish they did take reservations as the wait for dinner can get quite long. We ate here for breakfast and dinner. The food was tasty and of good quality, but the view stole the show. It was gorgeous and can't be beat. We opted for the breakfast buffet which offered a nice variety of choices and was priced... More
