A very special restaurant, wonderful food! A must if you are in the area!

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.

Atmosphereof the restuarant is rustic, casual, and clean. The ranch and restaurant are family owned with pride. The breakfast (part of our stay) included eggs, toast and sausage. The homemade huckleberry pie we enjoyed for desert the previous night, was delicious. Food was fresh, well prepared. I would be happy to return

This restaurant had lots of choices and a cozy atmosphere. We actually sat inside while we waited for our to go order. The waitress offered us something to drink. We chose water and she brought it right over and even refilled. She was exceptionally friendly and sweet, a really delightful person. The food was very good and the home made... More

Found restaurant via Trip Advisor and another guest at Glacier Lodge. He recommended the fried chicken, said was best he'd ever had. I love fried chicken, and was eager to try it. It was good. Not great, not the best I have ever had, but well-cooked. Could use a bit more seasoning. Bring your own spirits if you want an... More

This place was such a welcome surprise! We had heard that good food is hard to find in East Glacier, but we were truly blown away here. It was interesting to overhear how many other diners were sent here by other restaurants. It is BYOB, so make sure you stop in town if you need wine/beer/etc. Everything was homemade with... More
