Amazing

I've been hearing about this place from my in-laws for 7 years! I came all the way from Calgary, Alberta to experience it for myself. I can honestly say that it lived up to the expectation I had. The portion sizes are huge, more than any one person needs. Quality is really good and the service is... read more

I thought the food was good but not some place I am dying to go back to the same with the service. They are always packed though so it must be popular in the valley.

We came in here one night after a day in Glacier, the place was packed but we were able to get a seat right away. Good comfort food to warm you up on a cool day. The best was the fry bread, it was like dessert. So yummy. I would go back just for the bread!

We only ate here once, while in town. I would describe it as "Good comfort food", at very reasonable prices. The service was, as others have described, a bit slow, but it was fine. Great place to take the family. I'd actually give it 3.5 stars, if I could.

We have dined here on many occasions. The food is always great, although sometimes the service leaves a bit to be desired. They have great rotisserie chicken, broasted chicken, and brisket. It is served with great sides indian fry bread, beans, cole slaw, red potatoes, fries and almost whatever you want! The biggest problem I have as a consumer is... More

This is sure to be a family favorite. It's not extremely fast, however the food is worth the wait and the price is very affordable. A Great family experience. Don't forget the fry bread.

We found this place while looking for another restaurant. It was a great find. The food was great and the service was great. The whole staff was very friendly and accommodating. We actually ended eating there 3 times. Will definitely will eat there the next time we are in town.
