A great place to eat and drink, it used to be Capers, but now a new menu!

A new menu from the last time we were there, but very good food & appetizers. The beer selection is one of the best in the area. We tried four different beers and the waitress was very helpful with our selections. We will be back again!

We ate here after seeing this was the top ranked restaurant in Kalispell. It didn't disappoint! Great tomato soup and steak fries for appetizers followed by yummy fish and chicken dishes. We also had great beer on tap...they offer several ice cold selections. Enjoy!

This place is absolutely phenomenal! It's a small place and has a warm vibe. We were taken care of by the attentive and friendly Dave. We both had the filet mignon. It was exquisite - best steak either of us had ever had! Also had nice beer and wine selections. Everything else on the menu also looked excellent - it's... More

Hop's has a terrific selection of foods you won't find anywhere else. From the "Yak Burger" to the "Wild Boar Burger", to steak fillets. We had the grilled asparagus as an appetizer and it was perfect! They have the most unique selection of beers, too. While I didn't care for the very bitter beer I tried, it was unlike anything...

I ate the steak. It was very good, but I was also starving so I can't truly be objective. Everyone else had a burger and said it was great.

Food was good. Shannon was a great server. She kept our drinks full and our food was delivered in a reasonable time. Beware, this is a small restaurant. Wait times can vary from the time given at check in. Tables greater than four should go elsewhere.

First off, Austin our server was the best. Kept us abreast of our order, very knowledgable and perfectly attentive. We enjoyed the highly recommended wild boar burger. Cooked perfectly and super tasty. They have lots of awesome beers. We even waited over 20 min. I wasn't too happy to wait but now know it was worth the wait! Go and... More

Reading the Trip Advisor reviews, you can readily discern than Hops has great burgers. But, when we ate dinner there. we had the dinner-sized (daily special) take on their Wild Salmon Roulade, which was as finely a prepared fresh salmon dish as we have ever had. Cooked perfectly, as well as perfectly seasoned and presented. The fresh vegetables that came... More

One of the best buffalo burgers I have ever tasted. The service was awesome and friendly. Loved the beer selection. Every seat taken but never felt rushed. A must stop if in town.
