Catered "Boxies" for a business event

Can't be more pleased about the Boxies sandwiches from Bison Creek. Everything was delicious, ready on time and packed up so nicely! Highly recommend that you call Aaron and order one of his signature sandwiches to go.

What a surprise, this was the last restaurant open for the season in East Glacier to we went on a hunt and search for it and we are glad we did. It was late so I wanted something light so I ordered a "steak salad". I expected a few slices of meat to accent some lettuce. What I got was... More

We saw this place on our way to East Glacier and asked about it at our motel. They raved so we had to check it out!! The inside is warm and inviting. We all had the fried chicken which was the house specialty. It was incredible!!! The service was excellent and we had a great time. It's BYOB and luckily... More

We did eat at the Bison Creek Ranch Cafe, but picked up a boxed lunch to replenish us later in the day while we hiked. This was by far the best boxed lunch of our trip (we got lunches from several places during our visit). The sandwiches were very tasty and the homemade chips were excellent. There was even a...

This is a hidden jewel. The only reason we found it and went was because of other Trip Advisor reviews. They were all correct! Beautiful view. Great food. My daughter and I split the chicken dinner. Plenty of food and we were able to try all the courses.

This was a pleasant surprise, off the main road so you have to look to find it, but it's worth it. Had bison and my friend had trout. This is a family owned place that takes great pride in their restaurant. Our waitress was a 3rd generation granddaughter and she treated us like royalty.

Restaurant was full of people who had obviously been there before. I had the trout and soup and both were rather uneventful. My husband had the pork chops. Not bad - just nothing special for the price. Service was great and we loved the friendly dogs outside and seeing the wild horses.

Cute place, it is part of a bed and breakfast and is off the road. Google map it before you go. The Huckleberry Ice Tea and Lemonade were really good. If you order the Chicken you do have to wait because they make it right then, my husband thought it was really good. I had the steak salad and it... More

This place was recommended to us and we were very glad we went there first. Got to try a few huckleberry items and loved them. A relaxed, welcoming and delicious place to go.

This would be an easy restaurant to overlook. It is tucked back between cabins and not visible from the road. The staff were very friendly and the food excellent. It is rustic and you do need to BYOB, but that worked well for us.
