Good food and service

Largest chicken fried steak. Have ever seen! The service was efficient and friendly. Basically a decent restaurant although we craved something " different" it was good food.

Kind of a pub/Applebee's feel. Reasonable burgers, good beer selection. Elk burgers, lamb burgers, angus burgers. So-so soups.

We were a large group, but we had called ahead. A hour and half later and we were still waiting on our food. When it did come, bison tip and prime rib, it was not very good and we left most on our plate. This restaurant had good word of mouth reviews so hopeful this was just a bad night.

Ate here for most of our meals, breakfast & dinner. We found the variety of options more appealing than most places in town that only offer pizza or burgers. Portions are Montana large. Enjoyed the home cooking & home like atmosphere.

Three bear restaurant was the type of place we used to go to that barely exists anymore. The food was great, wait staff great and it was a warm place to be in every sense of the word. Loved the history about the restaurant and hotel too.

Always have a good breakfast here. Good selections. The specials are always worth a try. Had eggs O/E , with biscuit and gravy. Very good. The egg and cheese scramble was good and ample in size. Reasonable prices and friendly staff are always a plus.

Wonderful room, above average restaurant and very convenient to the park. There are two parts to the hotel so stay in the main house not in the one story adjacent hotel with same name

Free breakfast at our motel was just adequate, so we tried breakfast at the Three Bear Restaurant. Three giant-sized blueberry pancakes. They were wonderful, coffee was very good, and service was excellent and friendly. Highly recommended!

We had among much more very tasty grilled Salmon, a perfectly prepared Trout and an excellent Prime Rib and a good choice of sides, all very well prepared. The green beans with parsley and garlic were a treat for us being from Europe. Likewise the breakfast plates were all good, and the omelettes very good. The service is always friendly... More
