After seeing many positive reviews, we were excited to try this restaurant, even after waiting for 30 minutes. Unfortunately, the meats were dry, the veggies overcooked, and the kitchen slow. I'd just rather get a fastfood hamburger.

Classic place for breakfast or lunch! It was packed, but service was speedy! Delicious homemade bread served with the meal.

My husband and I finally made it for dinner at a decent hour!! We ordered ribs and chicken combos. I had the country ribs and fried chicken and my husband had the spare ribs and fried chicken-- portions so big we could not finish! The fry bread is unique and tasty too! I wish I had another night to visit... More

We had breakfast here and a late dinner here another night while visiting the area. For breakfast, I had the owl breakfast sandwich-- it was huge and very filling along with the hash browns! My husband had a huge ham and cheese omelet and lived his food as well!! On our late dinner visit I had the grilled meatloaf and... More

my husband and I recently dined at this establishment upon the recommendation of our hoteliers. we had a pleasant experience until we went into the gamekeeper casino where an older woman, whom my husband jokingly refers to as the slot-reiller (rottweiler), gossips nonstop & rules with an iron fist. not sure why they keep this incredibly rude woman in their...

I have been here a number of times over the past 8 years whenever we visit glacier national park. It never disappoints. We were just there last week and had the buffet and it was awesome. Good quality comfort food: ribs, fried chicken, jalepeno Mac and cheese, mix vegetables, fry bread, pizza and more. For only $13 per person. We... More

When you walk into this restaurant it feels like walking right into 1962. I'm certain that the decor has not been changed since then but don't let that fool you. If you're looking for good food this is the place. I read some reviews of this time machine and most were not great. I respectfully disagree! I didn't go to... More

We went with friends who had previously been to the Back Room. They recommended the brisket, which frankly, I thought was only a boring June Cleaver specialty. It was fantastic! The meat was flavored so perfectly, it didn't need anything else. With the fried bread, and baked beans, the meal was perfect. The server allowed me to substitute fruit for... More

They have the BEST Chili Cheese burger I have ever had. The chili smothered the burger and you could still taste the great grilled burger taste. My husband also raved about his chili cheese omelette. Generous portions and great service.
