What a treasure in Columbia Falls! The community is so fortunate to have a such a great dining place. Local, fresh ingredients are used by a creative Chef to produce unique plates with amazing depth of flavours. Wish I lived closer to experience more items on the menu.

We really enjoyed dining in this restaurant. The place was packed when we arrived without reservation, but we could get in after 30 minutes and it was worth the wait. Very friendly staff and different things on the menu. We had a Chorizo & kale soup, which was excellent. Then we had the Montana Pork chop and the New York... More

My wife found Three Forks Grill on Tripadvisor as we were heading to our secluded cabin at Smokey Bear just outside Glacier National Park. After a scenic 6 hr drive from Spokane we rolled into Columbia,Mt and the Three Forks Grill just as they were opening at 5pm on a Monday. They greeted us with a smile and patiently explained... More

Well worth the drive from West Glacier for dinner here. Enjoyed Elk Tenderloin and Trout combo plate and would highly recommend it. If we had more nights in the area we would surely have returned for the excellent food!

Redeemed by the quality food and lovely server!....read on!! Recommended by our B&B "Bad Rock"....which was great, but on the point of walking out after encountering our first strange rude Front Desk host at this restaurant. Totally ignored as we entered and not acknowledged while he continued a conversation with another waiting couple. Eventually (we had a booking) I did... More

We ate here for an early dinner on a Friday afternoon. Since we were travelling, and many places in this area are not open between 3 and 5, we didn't get lunch and we were Starving! We arrived right as they openned at 5:00 and we were given our choices of seating. We sat in the loft area right along... More

Good service, very good and innovative meals, and local beer on tap. We sat in the upper level or loft of the dinning room and found it to "Montana rustic" and comfortable.

While visiting Glacier and staying in Columbia Falls, my father and I ate dinner here twice. Best cole slaw I've had anywhere. So far eaten the rainbow trout, buffalo burger, Montana pork chop and risotto with scallops. All the dishes were well prepared and accompanied by a nice selection of wine and local beer. Atmosphere was nice and all the... More

We stumbled across this little gem while searching for a grocery store and returned for dinner that night. I love fresh trout and their grilled trout entree was well-prepared with a pistachio and lime gremolata and a lovely selection of fresh grains and vegetables. We started with the bison lettuce wraps -- delicious explosion of flavors -- mint, basil, chilis,... More

If you are near Columbia Falls, this is definitely THE place to have dinner. The décor, art, service and food all work together to make it a memorable casual evening. Make a reservation if you can or arrive early (opens at 5pm) on the weekend. We had dinner here twice while visiting Glacier National Park. Everything we ordered was simply... More
