A simple menu, but very accommodating. It was a great breakfast and we sat on the outdoor patio, it was very warm inside. You step through an open low window to get on the patio from inside. Have the Home Fried Potatos, they were really good. Omelets were awesome.

We tried this on our first morning in East Glacier and then returned every single morning (5) remaining plus one on the road back to the airport from West Glacier. This is not a breakfast for dieters or health-watchers--stuffed huckleberry french toast is deep-fried in batter (other flavors and a bunch of delectable omelets also available). But it sticks--only one... More

I love burgers, and I'm glad we stopped here for lunch. We both had bison burgers and loved them. My fiancee had fries and I had chips. Both were great. I'm not a huge fan of chips, but these must have been homemade because they actually had potato in them!

This was my favorite restaurant in the little town of East Glacier. Greeted with some of the friendliest service, we got to sit outside on a cute patio, perfect for the weather we had. The food was delicious and the prices were reasonable. A must stop when in town!

This place doesn't look like much from the outside, but the food was excellent. My wife and I both had omelets which were delicious and well priced.

Not your usual kind of mom and pop restaurant. Everything we had was tasty, fresh, plentiful and had extra touches. From the salad that was more than just a side salad to the grilled tomato garnish with the BBQ beef platter. The special for the day was crafted by a smart chef who understood other cultures cuisine when it is... More

Their Huckleberry French toast they gloat about on their front sign is terrible! It was deep fried with some kind of low cost cream cheese and purple stuff in the middle that had very little taste of huckleberries at all! The place looked and felt like a shack trying to be a restaurant !

Supply and Demand. The Whistlestop is an outdated Mom & Pop restaurant that I am fairly certain doe snot meet many safety codes. You have to step through a window to eat on their patio and the lone bathroom is in the middle of the kitchen. The price of the food is comparable to an upscale dining experience, despite a... More

We had delicious beef and pork ribs, tender and falling off the bone. The "smaller" portions were pretty large! Service was pleasant but a little slow.
