Busy, noisy and average

Surprising to find a menu which, outside having huckleberries in many items (the glass of white wine with "huckleberry flavor" bordered on the ridiculous, from my point of view), shows little regional flair. No fish, no game, no buffalo, just standard "American food" that you can find anywhere in... read more

It is always busy but we were able to get seated and the service was outstanding. We ate there 3 out of 4 days and never had a bad meal or service.

A complete dive of a bar but the fun is up to you! Great place to grab a cold one, play darts on a lousy board, play pool and catch up on TV sports after a long day's hiking. Fun porch to watch people go by. Worth at least one beer!

We were in West Glacier for several days and had one lunch and two dinners here. the other meals were at a group member's house. This was a great restaurant for the area. I had dinner with a huge trout one night and a pasta dish the other night. This place is a winner. You may have a short wait,... More

I did not eat a meal at the this cafe but my husband and I did enjoy a delicious piece of huckleberry pie. My husband ordered his with huckleberry ice cream and it included 4-5 scoops for a minimal price.

best deal close to Many Glacier especially with the price of park concessions. Chicken burrito was very good.

Being a military person I must say you will be made to feel unwelcome here. I've been to this establishment twice thus far in the 14 season and have been treated noticeably different than other patrons. The bartender on both occasions was curt to put it mildly. On to affordability, well, bring plenty of money as the costs are high.... More

Like some of the other reviewers I ate here because it was across a small street from my motel. The people were nice and polite, they were also helpful. They made good recommendations to me and the wife. We ate both breakfast and dinner here. Main courses were well priced and tasty. The desserts, Huckleberry Cream pie and Carrot Cake... More

Swung in here because it was wihin walking distance of the motel I stayed in. The staff were extremely friendly. The buffalo burger I tried was great and the coffee, in particular, was fantastic.

The bar is small and comprises one of the seven or so buildings that make up West Glacier. The beer prices are not too outrageous and the bartender was a great guy who truly knows the area. Whether you drink or not it is worth checking in just to get a rundown on the hiking trails and other things to... More
