Before we moved to Kalispell we stayed in a local hotel (Kalispell Grand) and decided to stop in to have dinner one night since it is right next door and we were craving Chinese Food. OMG! Bland, flavorless and just plain horrible! I honestly don't know what else to say.....I guess being Kalispell we should have known better than to... More

We have loved the Alley Connection for years, 30+ years. The family owned Vietnamese restaurant has survived many changes over the years but remains as consistently great as ever. They are THE place to stop for a quick lunch - service is fast, friendly and the food is just yummy. It's a small, quaint little place. Try the egg rolls,... More

This restaurant was one of my picks to try because of its reviews here on TA. We didn't even realize that it was next door to our hotel, The Kalispell Grand. The front desk also highly recommended it. We decided to give it a try and were very pleased (despite the slightly boring atmosphere). It was very reasonably priced, the... More

Alley Connection is located in historic downtown Kalispell on the street level of a hotel. It is easy to miss when driving by but there is onstreet and nearby parking lot. Menu is chinese as well as other american choices. We shared the Pineapple Chicken, and it was a good choice. The wait staff was friendly and gave us insight... More

Not sure why this restaurant is consistently listed as delivering, as we were told in no uncertain terms that they don't and won't.

Alley Connection Restaurant can be accessed directly from the Kalispell Grand Hotel lobby if you’re staying there, as well as via its own entrance on 1st Street West. We walked past the restaurant several times during our stay and it was always packed. For us, this was a positive sign of good food! So we indulged in a late-ish lunch... More

Love the Kong Pu Shrimp..They will make your orders as mild or hot as you like it. I had only one dish there that was not my... More

This food was flavorless and seemed like it was sitting in a steamer waiting to be served. I don't like buffets, but I wish we would have just headed to the Chinese buffet over this. We barely touched our meals and did not take the leftovers. Not only was the food nothing to brag about the service was just mediocre.... More
