Delicious...I had the quail and my husband had the trout. Would highly recommend. The service was good. Reservations are required, unless you eat early!

I visited Three Forks Grille with my extended family, 12 people from ages 6-70. We reserved our table well in advance (they are busy, and for good reason!) and Tim and his staff were wonderful work work with. Our dinner was a special celebration in honor of my in-laws and the whole staff went out of their way to make... More

We stopped in here after rafting. Since we didn't have a reservation they asked if we would be willing to eat at the bar. We were. The food was great, the bartender was efficient, and the conversation with other tourists around us was enjoyable.

We stopped into the Three Forks Grille after a day of rafting on the Middle Fork of the Flathead River, hungry enough for bear. The place was packed and we didn't have a reservation (yes, make a reservation by all means). However, the staff got us together, at the bar, where the bartender and manager took great care of us...

I'll be short because there are ample reviews. Food is amazing. At our table, we had trout, lamb, bison, and beef with six diners. We were very lucky to get a table for six without reservations. My meal was ground lamb sliders. They were perfection. Only downside is that it is noisy. We were on the ground level. It may... More

Better food than we were expecting for such a small town. Some unique dishes along with some of the standard fair. Great wine selection. But get reservations! Seats are not usually available for walk-ins.

My first time at the deli. I phoned ahead inquiring about their cheeses and colecuts. Great staff! Very welcoming, and knowledgeable of the deli. I will definitely order from them again. What a great convenience!

Months ago when we planned our trip to Columbia Falls that would serve as our base camp while we explore west Glacier National Park, we made a reservation for dinner at Three Forks Grille. Our dining experience exceeded our expectations. We shared the appetizer special of grilled figs, duck pastrami, blanched almonds, blue cheese, and greens. As our entrees we... More

By far the best restaurant in Columbia Falls. Only real fine dining option in town as well. Food is exceptional and the service matches the quality of food. Even better, most of the food has local roots and is made in-house, including the spaghetti noodles. Great flavors and a warm experience awaits. Check out this great eatery close to Glacier... More
