Good food and service with an amazing view

We shared a delicious chicken sandwich while we sipped on huckleberry margaritas and enjoyed the most spectacular view of a glacier lake and mountains. If we return we will be staying at the Many Glacier Hotel so we can be immersed in this beautiful place. Don't miss it!

The food is mediocre at best. The view is great, but the late afternoon sun makes it blinding, so one really only has a view if you eat breakfast here. They try and do "big city" dishes here and it does not work. Food is very bland. Stick with burgers and sandwiches if you eat here and you'll be less... More

We ate two meals there. The food was excellent. I had a delicious roast beef dinner for $20.00. The buffet breakfast was terrific. The servers are attractive young people. After a long day of hiking the restaurant was very welcome.

Staffed by people from around the world, this place is excellent, and not too expensive when you consider that your next nearest establishment is 12 miles away and probably no less expensive.

The food and service were great and all in our group enjoyed every meal we ate. The sunset views of the mountains and lake added to the experience.

We had a wonderful dinner here. They were very kind to my 2-year old daughter, and set us at a quiet table with a view. Service was prompt and food was very good. We enjoyed watching the bears play during our meal.

We had one dinner here and one breakfast. The service was very good, and they do a commendable job with a varied menu, with some local sourcing, and a decent number of choices, considering how remote the area. Still---I would probably give it a 3.5 until when you add in the majesty of the room and the view. That kicks... More

The Ptarmigan is the more upscale dining area at the Many Glacier Hotel. The food and the staff are both excellent. The views from the windows are wonderful. There is nothing not to like about this place.

The food was fantastic, but like any lodge dining in a National Park, it's way too expensive. The staff was personable and attentive.

Food is good. Most of the servers are college students. They have a lunch box service which we used, but didn't like as much as we liked the food in the restaurant and grill. Portions are large enough to share. Sometimes a wait. We preferred the food here over the Swiftcurrent grill.
