Best meal of trip!

Food was beautiful - my children were taking pics and posting on FB. Meal and service were so good, my family asked... read more

Called for reservations and they were full, but 15 minutes later we got a call because of caller ID because another of party of 8 cancelled. Great service! Got promptly seated. Wait staff was great. Pleasant efficient funny and concerned that everything was great. Definitely moved to one of our favorite places in Columbia Falls

Four of us from Los Angeles arrived with low expectations for the food in such a small town. We left raving about the food, the careful thought that went into the combinations of taste and the presentation on the plate. Judging by some of the reviews, Three Forks may not be the most consistent place, but on the Saturday night... More

We were more than pleasantly surprised when we stopped for lunch at Three Forks Grille & Deli in Columbia Falls, Montana, on our way from Glacier National Park back to our lodging in Lakeside. I ordered a grilled cheese Panini with smoked fontina, cheddar, sweet grilled onions, tomato jam, and arugula on Pullman bread, plus I had them add a... More

We'd heard good things about this place, so we decided to have dinner there last night. We were definitely not disappointed. I had the seafood risotto, and David had one of the two specials, which was the seafood chowder. Both were delicious! The wine selection was perfect, and although we didn't partake, the dessert menu looked exquisite. We will be... More

Two story restaurant with easy street parking and ample locally sourced menu. Prices were reasonable for setting and location and more for your dollar than most restaurants to the east going into the park. Creative chef brings together the best of italian and regional specialties in a nice fusion with great presentation, fine sauces, and freshest vegetables and lettuces. Beats... More

I was traveling back from Glacier National Park late on a Saturday night. We were looking for a place to stop for supper on the way back to Kalispell. I had heard of Three Forks but never been there. We arrived about 8:00 and had just missed the dinner crowd. We were seated immediately at a cute table on the... More

After a LONG day in Glacier, we were starving! We beat the crowd and were able to be seated upstairs right away. The service was very friendly and attentive. My boyfriend had the pork chop which was delicious and I had the trout which was very good as well. Nice spot to find in a small town.
