Good Food and Service

We had dinner one evening. Good food well cooked but we are not used to eating from plastic plates and do not consider them to be healthy in a restaurant as the surface soon becomes scratched. Huckleberry pie was great!

We both ordered ribs, both loved our meals. This restaurant offers three different size rib entrees, each appropriately priced. Our waitress, Cheri, promised falling-off-the-bone tender ribs and they were exactly as described. Ordering the small portion left just enough room for dessert, which was also wonderful. Most of the desserts are made by Cheri & all look great! We observed... More

Great Food! My husband had the bison steak and it was beautifully cooked. We both left stuffed but the food tasted very fresh. The pie is worth it as well.

I cannot say enough good things about the breakfast offerings. (and we only ate here for 2 breakfasts so I cannot comment on lunch/dinner). I am not an omelette fan, but I got the salmon omelette and OMG! It was so good. I don't even know how they made it taste so good. Then on next day, I got a... More

This is a rather small off the beaten path place to enjoy a great breakfast. Everyone seemed to order the stuff french toast which the signature item of this restaurant. I can recommend the veggie omlett. It was stuffed full of veggies.

Breakfast menu basically has two items: omelettes and French toast. But there is a large selection of both including many different kinds of stuffed French toast and savory omelettes which are served with homemade toast - yum. The place is tiny and ramshackle but the food makes it worth a visit especially since choices are limited in this area. Our... More

We ate breakfast here twice. The service was excellent - friendly, quick, helpful. We both ate quiche. We loved the food was very good. The serving portions were large, vegetables, tasty. The place feels pretty cramped when there are a lot of diners. We would (and did) return.

The place, the service, and the food were all mediocre I was especially disappointed with my Buffalo Burger The stuff they put on it is supposed to enhance the flavour of the meat. Unfortunately, the sweet green stuff they put on there meant that I never tasted the meat - it may as well have been chicken

After a long hike up Grinnell Glacier we stopped here on our way back to the lodge. We had not had good dining experiences so far on our trip so everyone was ready for a good meal. The food was simple and delicious. My husband got the one rib plate with some other things on it, my son got pulled... More
