Still The Best Burger in Kalispell, Maybe Montana.

This is a small and very popular locally owned restaurant. It serves the best burgers and all kinds of them. Its fun to read through the menu. Of course we love the good old Montana raised beef burgers but you can also try Buffalo and Yak burgers. Those are also locally raised right here in... read more

Everyone seemed to be here - so was a good atmosphere. Extensive craft beer menu and the food is good and reasonably priced. Would recommend.

Across the street from the Kalispell Grand Hotel and two blocks from Sweet Peaks ice cream. Dining room nicely appointed, wait staff was eager to please. Worth waiting for a table (hostess called us and we walked over from the KGH). Most of us ordered kobe burgers, one of us ordered the boar burger. Burgers were tasty as were the... More

I came here tonight with a friend of mine and it was absolutely packed. We were seated right away and from the moment we sat down everything was absolutely perfect. Our server, I wish I could remember her name, made the experience all that it was. She was fantastic. My friend had the Ahi special and I had the filet... More

As former Flathead Valley residents, we travel to Kalispell every few years to visit old friends and spend time in the Park. We have been enjoying a great dining experience at this restaurant through its metamorphosis from Café Maxx to Capers to Hop's. We're told it has been the same owner/chef throughout its existence - just keeps re-inventing to keep... More

I've been to Hops twice and both times have received excellent food and my colleagues agreed. Their special features are always good and I tried the calamari caesar salad and had some of the best calamari ever! I've eaten great calamari in San Francisco and this is right up there!

Good food and a really nice place to stop on our Montana adventure trip. Good service and good food in a really cool setting. Kept looking around to see if there was anyone famous...looked like a good place to hang out.

By far one of the best burgers I've ever had. It was cooked to perfection, very tasty and juicy. The homemade chips were also very good.

We visited Hop's grill per recommendation from the owner of the bed and breakfast we were staying in! This place was a very small place which matched the small town it was in. I got the Kalispell Brewing Co Burger. It has Oregon bleu cheese on the top and the onions that topped the burger were fried in a stout... More

This was a nice restaurant to eat at. One of their primary claims to fame are their burgers which include options of Bison, Yak, and Wild Boar. The wait staff was pleasant and engaging. We arrived at 5 pm when they first start serving food which lead to a slight hiccup in the service. One of the grills had not... More
