I stopped in right before closing with three friends after a long two days of hiking in Glacier National Park. We were seated immediately, though the place was packed. Our server was awesome- friendly, funny, and efficient. Between the four of us we tried the cheeseburger on fry bread (excellent), the fried chicken (amazing) and a veggie pizza (solid). But... More

At the recommendation of long-time local residents we stopped into The Back Room Restaurant following a day in Glacier Park and found it is a must for anyone wanting a great meal at a reasonable price. Their specialty is BBQ ribs (cooked over a charcoal grill), chicken, and pizza. Another hit with us was their fried bread . . .... More

I had heard the wait could be as much as an hour before one's food order hits the table before we gave it a try last week. The parking lot was packed (everynight we were in town) and the line to get seated was10-15 minutes long and our food order took about 45 minutes, so our experience was dead-on the... More

They have the best fry bed! We all enjoyed our meals and this place is very busy so expect a 15 + wait but it is worth it!

We split an order and it was more than enough. Lots of food. The staff was kind and helpful. It was really busy which tells us that the food is always great. Will go here again for sure.

We dined here twice while on vacation near Glacier Park. Both times the food and service were excellent! My husband had the ribs and I had the chicken. The fry bread was delicious as well. The servers were friendly and the service was good especially considering the place is so popular and very busy!

I've been going to the Back Room for over 10 years now. If you're on your way to Glacier National Park do yourself a favor and stop in for the best barbecue west of the Mississippi.

We went here when driving back to our cabin in north forty lodge. The food was REALLY good, but we waited one hour, and the place was busy. The service was nice, but again slow. The slowness was the only reason I gave it 4 stars. Great food though!

We visited on Saturday August 2nd. It was a very busy place but the wait for a table for 9 people at 6:00 was reasonable. The waitress was pleasant and kept the orders perfectly. The food was delicious. My daughter and I split the large rib plate and we both got stuffed. You will have to wait for a while... More

Nice restauant, very good food and service. Loved the fry bread! Glad we don't have it around here because I would want to eat it every day and as you can tell by it's name, it's not a very healthy choice to eat on a daily basis. But yum!
