Try the stuffed French Toast

We stopped here on our way to hike the Two Medicine area. We enjoyed our breakfast so much that our kids got up early the next morning so that we had time for breakfast before we had to be at the airport. The huckleberry French Toast and the caramel apple French Toast were our favorites. The... read more

Delicious BBQ ribs (both pork and beef) with amazing sides—believe me, we were full when we walked out of this spot! We had a very knowledgeable and sweet server who made sure our iced tea glasses were always full. For dessert we had huckleberry pie and French apple pie, both of which were scrumptious. Great views from their deck.

I came in once at night and once in the morning. Although I only had a beer when I came in at night, the food smelled incredible. I was bummed out that they were closing the day after I arrived(I came very late in the season) because I wanted to come back and try the dinner. The breakfast was great.... More

We got there right after it opened, so it wasn't real busy when we arrived for breakfast. The food was very good; the omlets are very filling. Good, strong coffee. Very casual atmosphere.

Stopped here for breakfast and found it to be one of the more popular spots in east glacier. Caught them at the tail end of the season so things might not have been as good as they could have. Didn't have some food items on the menu. Breakfast was pretty much average, no frills. Service was average at best. Would... More

We both had barbeque, one chicken and one a large beef rib. It was not Southern or Texas style barbeque, but was quite good. The service was fine, and the prices were okay. They sell dinners with either one or two of the beef ribs, and they are large enough that one will do for a person not very hungry.

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
