From the outside, I would not suspect that this "casino/bar/grill" would have the quality of food that we got. Our service was friendly and attentive. I had a BLT sandwich, described on the menu as "bacon, lots if it". It did, indeed, have more bacon than the standard, and the rest of the ingredients were fresh and tasty. My daughter... More

I have been to this restaurant before and it is usually ok, nothing great, but a decent selection. When we went last weekend the waitresses were haggling over where we were to sit and who would have to take us. The waitress came over about 10 minutes or so after we were seated so we already knew what we wanted.... More

This has become our "have to" place to eat when we go to Kalispell. They have the best salads, meals etc. Only licensed for beer and wine but you can get clam juice with it!! Always has real good food!!! Fast service too!!!

Friendly staff and large portions! Try the Pounder chicken fried steak with breakfast. So big it covers the entire plate and causes the pint of sausage gravy to spill over the sides. I have only finished it once and now I split it with the wife. Locals crowd this place every morning. The only drawback is the terrible parking area... More

We use to eat in here a lot, one night my husband and I came in late to eat. An employee was having her birthday, she came in with friends, was extremely loud and drunk. We didn't get any customer service cause the other employees were giving her gifts and being very loud and rude. They were saying curse words... More

A little off the beaten path, but worth the short drive out to Evergreen for good food and a friendly atmosphere. The prices are a little on the high side, but you receive large portions that you can split or take home for a 2nd meal. Everything we have eaten here has been great -- never dissappointed!

We've stopped my Nickel Charlie's several times over the years for lunch and have always been satisfied with both the meals and service. I love their huge salads and they will always cook/serve to order if you have any special requests. Very friendly staff and obviously the locals love this spot as well. A little out of the way from... More
