The last time we dined at Nickel Charlie's (2000) we were disappointed and didn't return until an acquaintance told us of the improvements that were made some time ago. And they were spot on. Nickel Charlie's is much cleaned up, decor has been tidied and the whole menu has been renewed. This may be part of the sistership with the... More

Nickel Charlie's is always a place when you can grab some home made food. Depending on what you order it can be on the heavy side, but you never leave feeling hungry. Very clean, good wait staff, and hearty portions. Mostly everything appears to be made from scratch, and there are always a lot of locals frequenting this restaurant. Good... More

We had the soup first - broccoli and cheese - it was very full bodied and lots of broccoli and very tasty cheese, it was delicious. To follow we shared a plate of mexican chicken stir fry with vegetables, rice, cheese... More

I've had some hit an miss with lunches---not tried the dinner, but breakfast has always been dependably great. Best hash browns in the valley (but probably not the healthiest....). What's usually a reliable indicator of a good place is a consistently full parking lot, and that's what initially drew me to the place. Most of the waitstaff are very outgoing... More

This is a friendly and small restaurant but they accommodated about 15 of our group arriving unannounced. The food was good and the service was excellent.

Its a casino too, as are many of the restaurants in Montana. There are antique, or new that look like antique, kids toys hanging from the ceiling but it looks kind of cute, not tacky. Its Sunday and they had a hot beef and mashed potatoes&gravy that hubby said was really good. I had fish tacos. Don't usually order this... More

This restaurant had a very big menu. I am on a VERY restrictive diet. It was very easy to find menu items that I could eat and the waitresses were very agreeable to making my specific changes to the menu items. We ate here 4 times in 7 days.

Met a couple of internet friends and decided to stop for breakfast here before heading to the Hungry Horse Reservoir for a day for sightseeing. We each had something different and everything was very good, especially the hash browns. It was early on Labor Day morning, so it wasn't very busy. Service was friendly and quick, and cost was very... More

Once upon a time this restaurant used to serve really good food with nice sized portions. They seem to have gotten lazy.....

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.
