Glad to See Nice Restaurant in C.F.

The Three Forks Grille started a renaissance for the food scene in Columbia Falls. The walls of this tasteful eatery are decorated with the work of local artists and some historic photography of the area. The service has always been friendly and attentive. The menu changes seasonally and incorporates regionally and locally produced products into the offerings. Everything is tasty!

The new deli concept at three forks is great for lunch. I ride my bike 25 miles every monday to get a sandwich there.

First went there in 2014 and been back several times since. This is a great place to have a Buffalo Burger-- the taste is to die for! Tangy and juicy, you will not be disappointed!

Highly recommend the balcony seating on the 2nd floor. Small selection, but everything is good. Definitely have wine with your meal. Great place for a couple or to impress someone!

We brought some friends from California to dine at our home town restaurant and they were very delighted to have eaten here. Of all the things to talk about in a thank you card after a week in Montana, they specifically noted this restaurant. The food was great and the presentation was splendid.

I think this place has the best food in Montana. They try to use as much local and/or organically raised food as they can. The menus offers unique twists on classic entrees as well as creative blends of spices and veggies and meat/fish. When I'm in the Columbia Falls area, I always make The Three Forks Grill my dining location.

We dined at Thee Forks Grille in Columbia Falls, Mt. recently and were pleasantly surprised. Being spoiled on good steaks, we weren't sure about trying local beef. However the flatiron steak was flavorful, tender and juicy. Burger was good and the Shrimp special was great. We will be back again when in the area.

This was a very small place in downtown Columbia Falls. Reviews we had seen were good so we decided to give it a try. The exterior and even the interior would not give a clue to the food within. There is very limited seating on the main floor and many stairs to the upper level. We were seated comfortably on... More

Best restaurant of our Glacier trip & worth a return trip despite the drive from our hotel a ways out. Excellent food, service, & wine.
