Good food when you're tired and need something fast!

We ate here two times on our recent trip to Glacier. It was great in a few ways: large selection of meals, several gluten free options, little if any wait time for a seat (unlike most places around!). The food was pretty good, not top notch but this isn't a fancy place and that's just fine. The... read more

Excellent BBQ. Very reasonable price and no frills. Fast and friendly service. The fried bread is to die for.

Stopped for an early morning breakfast. I had bacon and French toast with strawberry syrup. The syrup made the dish! (A pleasant change from maple). Hubby had eggs, sausage, toast and hash browns. He had more than he could eat. We got our money's worth compared to other places in the area. Waitress was nice with a great sense of... 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

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... 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.
