We were warned to get here early as there may be a wait. We got lucky and only waited a few minutes. As we were sitting, we noticed that there were a large amount of people waiting outside for a table. The food can be seen as traditional pub fare - BUT it is anything but ordinary. Burgers made from... More

We chose to have dinner here based on the reviews. I have to say we were very disappointed. The menu was limited, typically I find this is to ensure quality dishes. We did not find that to be the case. The burger was dry and lacked flavor, the bacon was over cooked. The lasagna had a very interesting texture and... More

Before we were seated, we had a 30-45 minute wait. The food was just average, the service spotty. The best part of the evening was being with friends. The bar was hopping, and there were a LOT of people there. Could be I ordered the wrong thing?

Great food. Great atmosphere. Great service. Always busy and hopping. Located in downtown Kalispell across from the refurbished 100+ year old Kalispell Grand Hotel (which is a lovely place to stay.)

We had to sit at the bar because the restaurant was full, that was fine, comfortable stools, great beer menu, it was hard to choose. Excellent burgers, we liked the chips (instead of french fries) that accompanied. We left because the bartender was way too loud, it got annoying, friendly, but loud.

This is a fun and delicious way to spend an evening. They had 8 beers on tap, and turned them into a flight of beers for us. What fun! The burgers were also quite good.

Excellent service; local beers featured, burgers were wonderful! We didn't have reservations, but were seated in less than 10 minutes. Cozy, but fun, atmosphere.

The burgers were great and so was the service! I didn't care for the chips they served they were overcooked and hard. I'd rather have fries. I'd go back for sure.

Came to Hops on a Wednesday night and sat at the bar to have a drink while we waited for a table. The restaurant is very small and cozy. It wasn't what we expected, but then again what do you expect in Montana? I wouldn't allow the wait or the tables that are cozied up next to eachother detour you... More

We're traveling cross-country leaning hard on TripAdvisor reviews. We've been quite fortunate since making that decision. Our ever so tasty dinner tonight at Kalispell's Hop's Downtown Grill was super! I had the brie and bacon bison burger with house made chips. My husband had lasagne. We washed our meals down with local Montana beers. The 40 minute wait was well... More
