Very friendly staff. I tried the Prairie Fire sausage which is made locally for them. It was delicious. Good sized portions for a good price.

We were staying in Kalispell overnight after traversing Logan Pass and went here for supper. The staff was courteous and very attentive. The food came very quickly and was tasty. Our 11 year old ordered some pasta and I don't think she was able to eat more than 15% of it. The serving was just that big.

We have been to Nickel Charlie's several times. It is always one stop we make when we are in Kalispell. The last time we went there were 10 people in our party. The bill averaged about $12/person including sodas and a couple pitchers of beer. The wait staff were friendly and wanted us to enjoy our meals. The kids were... More

Fun, local flavor. Kid friendly. Loved the California scramble and the coffee. They were flexible with order. Made one scrambled egg and one fried so our daughters could split plate.

casino/restaurant- this local hang has been around a long time. The food (we had breakfast) was pretty typical and typically priced. The atmosphere is kind of campy fun with stuff hanging from the ceiling etc which could help entertain road weary kiddles

We went to Nickel Charlie's on a recommendation from the front desk person at our hotel. We were looking for a light dinner and ordered salads. Salads were huge! But they were delicious! Wait-staff was very friendly and polite. Atmosphere is interesting as there are child size vehicles - the toys that you rode in when you were a kid... More

The radio ads say this place has the best customer service in the Northwest. What a joke! We came in during a slower time, there were plenty of open tables but we still had to wait 10 minutes. We didn't get drink orders for another 10 minutes and then were never offered refills. The breakfast was ok, but spendy. I... More

Wide variety on the menu. Great service and atmosphere with a 50's decor emphasizing peddle cars and airplanes. Pleasant and helpful emplyees are very helpful and serve with a smile. Great for families with a fair value. Love their Kansas City BLT's which are also found at The Montana Club.

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
