Nite Owl always seems to have a full parking lot -- and Rotary meets there -- so it should be a great place. Not quite. Not bad. Food is just fine, service a bit slow, priced about right. Nothing to make us want to return any time soon.

Stopped for lunch on the way to Glacier for lunch. Had the super grilled cheese and chili. The waitress was sweet and the place has a lot of character. Stopped again a week later for breakfast on the way to the airport.

This may be, as one of the other reviewers have it, "where the locals go" but that doesn't say much for local tastes. Yes, it is one of the few restaurants in Columbia Falls that offers sit-down dining (as opposed to fast food or pizza joints of which there are plenty), and the Rotary meets there, but we had truly...

When we travel, my husband likes a hearty breakfast, and we both like to experience the area as the locals do. The Nite Owl is where the local folks in Columbia Falls go and "where everybody knows your name." We had breakfast there twice. Both meals were very good. I like that fresh fruit was offered as a breakfast choice... More

If you need a heavier meal this is the place to go. Everything is made in house, the homemade soups are great, sandwiches are good, and you need to take some pie or dessert to go because the portions are really big.

Had good service and good food. We went back twice. Be sure to leave your tips in cash since the restaurant takes the credit card charge out of the server's tip.

Good food, reasonably priced, you leave feeling full. Good spot to stop at when going through town. Waitress was friendly and the place was busy. This one's on my approved list.

We ate several times here for breakfast when others on the top of TA list didn't open up before 8:00 (some later still). Good food and service. Specials everyday. Simple done Very Well. A+

I had a great meal @ this place on my way back home from Glacier park. The waitress was so kind & made great suggestions including telling us she had what we were thinking of ordering coming out of kitchen & would do a walk by & show us what meal looks like. Food looked great & was very good.... More

Okay, if you're looking for a high end dining experience, the Nite Owl is not for you. But then, neither is Columbia Falls, Montana. We stumbles across this place and thought it was a hoot. The food was good (and there was a lot of it), the pie was excellent, the prices were good and the staff was fantastic. They... More
