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.

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

We ate in the Back Room part of the Nite Owl. Very good buffet. Was very crowded and I feel like a lot of the people were locals.

This was one of the best meals I have ever had. I had a ribeye steak for $21, and my wife had the back ribs for $17. Both were outstanding, what more can I say? The service was excellent and the alcohol prices were very reasonable. We ate in the back room which is a bit more upscale than the... More

Recommended by motel owner and this was without a doubt the best place in town. Meal was excellent. Went two nights in a row. Chicken was great as were the ribs. Two can get a full meal for under $20 total.

We've eaten at Nite Owl 2 nights in a row. The food is tasty and they do have an allergen menu. The first night, they lost the order for one person at our table. They apologized, but he said forget it. He didn't need to eat. When the rest were mostly done, they brought him a free meal. However, he... More
