Don't let the small town atmosphere fool you...the food here is nothing short of gourmet. The best ribs I ever had, and their huckleberry french toast is to die for. They do get busy, but the staff is friendly and efficient.

Ate breakfast here on our last day in Glacier. Got the polish sausage omelet and it was the best I have ever had and cooked to perfection! Rest of family got stuffed huckleberry French toast and loved it but it was very rich! Would suggest getting different items and sharing! Desserts looked amazing! Would love to go at lunch or...

We came here for breakfast after having had a less than enjoyable night's stay at the Glacier Park Lodge. But the breakfast was fine and the service was pleasant. The food was average but satisfying. And the location was very convenient for us.

After reading reviews I expected something considerably above average. We dined twice, breakfast and dinner. Breakfast was good, a bit rich/sweet for my taste - abundant use of cream cheese type of ingredients - but good. Dinner was very different. The ribs were inferior to what is typically served in a real BBQ. The bison steak was equally disappointing. Service... More

We are here 3 times while in East Glacier Park. It is convenient and their breakfasts are really excellent. We always got really good service from the friendly staff. One night we had steak dinners and the steak was cooked just right. We had no complaints and enjoyed eating at Whistlestop.

No words can describe just how succulent these ribs are or how fresh and tart and sweet and AMAZING the pie is. Go see for yourself, you won't regret it.
