The Whistlestop is where we always stop in East Glacier. Food is good and not expensive as opposed to lodge restaurants. Nice staff, great pie and a cozy little stop just across the street from the Glacier Lodge hubbub.

Our host recommended this spot for dinner. Upon arrival we had to wait a bit to be seated. There were several empty tables but the waitress was so busy with other customers that it took a bit for her to get to us. After being seated, service was good. Our pulled pork bbq sandwiches with cole slaw and chips were... More

We called in here to try the Huckleberry pie and weren't disappointed, it was really good. We also had the ribs which were very tasty and well cooked, real tender, and a burger, which was literally one of the best I've ever tasted. Friendly staff, fresh ingredients and with that great home cooked flavour. Excellent choice.

Eating places around the Glacier Park Lodge are few and far between and it's often nice to have something besides the fare at the hotel restaurant. We had lunch at the Whistlestop Cafe.

The staff are always friendly, the food is out of this world! Fresh ingredients cooked to perfection every time! Their huckleberry pie, huckleberry & cream cheese stuffed french... More

Food is good, prices are good. Good Cafe Option. One of the best values in the area. Not a lot of options. I'd pick this one for a decent budget choice.

My wife and I ate breakfast here one morning during our stay in GNP. We would highly recommend the huckleberry french toast - it was amazing! We also had a cinnamon roll, which was huge! Definitely would stop again.
