We stopped here after a full morning of hiking and sightseeing in Glacier National Park. The service was fast and very friendly and the food was very good. We had a homemade chicken vegetable soup with an open-faced sloppy joe sandwich. It was filling and tasty.

Found this restaurant via TripAdvisor, so I feel compelled to write about our experience, which was our only bad one in a week of traveling around Glacier NP. The family style entrees are priced from around $18-24, which is more than we would usually spend on a meal for our kids. We were going to have them choose from the... More

Fell upon this restaurant completely by accident because it's part of the Red Eagle Motel in Saint Mary where we had a room booked ahead of a motorcycle trip across Going to the Sun Road. Couldn't have had a more pleasant surprise! Without intending to hurt the feelings of any friends or family, my wife and I both suspect that... More

Our server made a mistake on our order and insisted that the mistake was ours instead of his. I have never had such a terrible experience. We had eaten at the Park Cafe the night before and our server there was great!

If you like family style eating, you will like this. If not, don't go here. The fried chicken was good. They were out of both kinds of fish. There aren't too many options in St. Mary so this is a fairly good meal.

Home cooked fried chicken with real mashed potatoes and gravy and fresh baked biscuits just like grandma would make. Dinners include Johnson's good soup - a hearty beef vegetable. We went after a long hike and despite our big appetites, we still took home enough for another meal. They have lots of things on the menu, but the fried chicken... More

It took over an hour and a half to be seated, order taken, come back to tell us they were out of turkey for our sandwiches so would have to substitute ham, bring us another pitcher of water, bring our check, take it back to correct it, and bring it again. Other tables were seated after we were, orders taken... More

I really wanted to like this restaurant but I was disappointed. We had the vegetable soup and although it was hearty it had a bland taste. I had the trout and it was a bit fishy. It came with mash potatoes and for $22 this entree was not worth it. Although there are a limited amount of restaurants in St.... More

We ended up here after having been turned away from the restaurant at St Mary's lodge (since they close at 10:00am after breakfast????) Anyway, we ordered the breakfast burrito to share because it was HUGE! Be advised it feeds at least two unless you are a teenage boy. Service was friendly and prompt. The place is filled with memorabilia to... More
