Great food

Outstanding burgers: buffalo or beef Good breakfast. Get early or choices will be limited. Locals and hikers are main customers. But travelers in or out Glacier Ntl. Park are too Good service.

We stopped here several mornings during our visit to Glacier park. It was excellent. Good food, reasonably priced, and timely. We had a great breakfast and went on our way for a day in the park. Fun wait staff too!

We had breakfast here daily and one dinner. Bread was made fresh daily, breakfast was delicious with all fresh ingredients, not scimpy at all. Dinner was the same. Basically a cafe with bare bones but food more then makes up for it.

The waiter at the hotel we were staying at recommended this restaurant so we decided to give it a try. It is not fancy but the food and service were good. I chose the BBQ ribs. You have your choice of three different sizes from the four bone, half order and full order at correspondingly higher prices. I chose the... More

Great food and good prices. Their omelets are amazing. If you are returning customers they remeber who you are. We ate there most days on our trip for at least one meal.

Great breakfast! I had the huckleberry French toast stuffed with cream cheese. My husband had oatmeal with homemade toast which he raved about. The coffee was fresh brewed and delicious. The Whistle Stop was within walking distance of Glacier Park Lodge where we were staying!

Several years ago, we took a family trip to Glacier. Based on TripAdvisor reviews, we decided to go to breakfast at the Whistlestop. We absolutely loved the omelettes, French toast, and laid back diner atmosphere. If you are looking for a high-end, sanitized, ultra-quick eating facility, do not go here. If you enjoy interesting fare, hardworking cooks, and places with... More

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

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!
