The Backroom - the best ribs

At the back of the Nite Owl is a restaurant called the Back Room. It is very rustic & the food is excellent. Portions are large, so much so that my wife and I usually share meals. There is also a take away area if you want to take your meal back to your condo. The specialty is ribs but... read more

We have had many meals in this area of Montana, and this by far is the dogs breakfast and it started with the waitress. First my BLT and fries, should be called the cold BLC (Bacon Lettuce and Crouton) and a nest of soggy fries on a bed of grease! With no exaggeration whatsoever I soaked up 2 napkins by... More

We stopped here for lunch on a recommendation from a friend. I got a 7oz Cheeseburger but didn't like having to pay extra for Tomatoes. Yeah that's right ! For a Cheeseburger that was $10.00 it was way over cooked and dry and the bun was cracking apart in my hands so much I couldn't set it down. My wife's... More

The Nite Owl and its sister restaurant the Back Room are favorites for locals and visitors to Glacier National Park. The food is old fashioned and not fancy, but good. You can have everything you want from bacon and eggs to grilled cheese, to lovely pie and the best BBQ in the area.,,at any time you want. You can order... More

Me and my wife went in for lunch she really enjoyed the veggie burger that she ordered. I had an open face roast beef sandwich with mashed potatoes and brown gravy and it came with a weird relish on top that I wasn't a fan of. Overall though the food was a good and the prices were fair. A lot... More

I had French toast which was really nice and light, and the syrup was also very good and not overly sweet. Both of us had the ham which was lovely. The omelet was average, but the plate was heaped high with enough food for two. We would go there again.

Stopped for breakfast that was wonderful. Old time diner atmosphere with really wonderful waitress. Everything is homemade. The biscuits were huge and light and tender. They brought 4 with our breakfast had to have them packed up 2 because they were so big!

We were tired of cooking in the rain and decided to drive to town for breakfast while camping at Glacier. The staff was really nice (we hardly looked our best!). Coffee was hot, service was attentive, portions were generous. Food was good and a welcomed treat. We would go back.

Waitress was excellent, looked after our needs quickly and efficiently. Food was not so great. Liver was very thin and dry. Wife order a chicken steak, got chicken fingers but they were the best of the meals. Like I say, waitress/server was excellent and made the other mistakes doable
