This restaurant was really fun! If you are looking for an American experience, you must try the Back Room. After a day of skiing, a group of us went to try this place. It has metal chairs, typical American table clothes and cards all stuck to the ceiling. If you take some time to look around, you will notice a... More

After a long day skiing we wanted some good home style cooking. We enjoyed chicken and ribs. All of which were very good. The servings were big we had enough to take back to the hotel for dinner the next night. Service was very good. We will be back again

Whenever visitors visit, we introduce them to the Back Room. Everyone has commented that they will be back. So expect tourists and locals as well as great food with just the right amount of grease!

What a fantastic steak. Cooked perfectly. The sides that went with it were superb. The famous fry bread is unlike anything I have ever had. Great beer selections. All around good time.

We were referred to the Back Room of The Nite Owl by our hotel. Good choice! The place was very big! It was also very crowded with what appeared to be locals (always a good sign). The waitress was EXTREMELY friendly. We ordered the chicken, BBQ ribs and burger. They were all fantastic! The baby red potatoes were out of... More

Comfort food you would eat at home. We do take out about twice a month and enjoy it. They have a great menu with a tremendous variety. Staff is friendly and helpful, very accommodating. Great community supporters too. We have meetings there, classes. Very comfortable, warm, and inviting.

Cozy, popular dinner place that we would have never found without recommendations from others. Dinner was excellent, prices were decent. They offer a variety of options, including special dinners for seniors that were "just the right size". Chicken is broasted and outstanding!
