I was in the area exploring Glacier NP for the week and Hop's was my go to spot to grub every night. These burgers are the real deal, especially their wild hog burger. That was one of the more tasty burgers I've ever had. Their homemade chips are also a nice side (significantly better than the slaw). I was hungry... More

Great little find the food and staff were excellent, the decor does not match the outside branding and could do with a bit of a modernization, but it was not dirty, just didn't seem to match the food and beer they were serving

I would have rated 3-1/2 stars if possible. The tomato soup was very tasty. The rest of our dinner was good, but nothing special

It's been 10 days since we ate at Hop's and I wish we would have gone back for a second time while visiting Kalispell. The soup was AMAZING! The beer selection was huge and our waiter was so Knowledgeable! Awesome service and delicious food....what more could you ask for?

Went there for early dinner mid-week with a couple girlfriends so there wasn't any wait. Impressed by some of the unique items on the menu (boar, yak, and buffalo!). Had gluten-free bread option for the burger buns. Server made great recommendations on the beers and patiently let me sample a couple til I found the right one. Again, great selection... More

April 25, 2015- The 3 of us were seated immediately, but instantly noticed it was a bit loud (I must be getting old...). I ordered Lasagna, my wife ordered Grilled Mediterranean Chicken w/Rissuto & Asparagus, our son had a burger. The wait was about an hour, but the food...was...AWESOME!!!! I'll be back!

We went as a couple, so seating wasn't an issue for us up at the bar, but if you need a table, it seemed like a small and busy place with quite a wait. The bartender knew a lot about his wines and beers which was wonderful, I've never crossed someone so knowledgeable. Their boar burger was delicious, chips were... More

On US 93 downtown. Had to wait 50 minutes, but it was worth it, Shrimp/crab cakes were very good. Variety of menu items. Great food at a good price. Get there early, only about 12 tables. Beer and liquor available I will return for sure. Excellent waitress/waiter staff.
