Description: We welcome you to Glacier National Parks West Entrance as we have welcomed visitors for over sixty years. The restaurant and other West Glacier Mercantile buildings were constructed in 1938 at the junction of the Going to the Sun Road and US Highway 2. We are open mid May thru mid September, serving breakfast lunch and dinner. Our food is all home made, desserts are amazing and staff is exceptional. We are able to accommodate your group whatever the size. We are fully licensed so you may enjoy a cocktail with your meal and we do take out or sack lunches if you prefer to eat "on the fly". Stop in and check out our ice cream cones or huckleberry cream pie!

“Great portions , awesome salads and fair prices ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

Went here with family after a long day of hiking and the salads are amazing ! (fresh and tasty). We ordered off the dinner menu which was good and the prices were fairly reasonable. The rainbow trout dinner was very good and the fried chicken was ok. My complaint is that the mashed potatoes weren't real , as you could taste that they were instant. Also, the chicken parm was prepared differently than what we are accustomed to on the east coast but it was edible. If you are going to order spaghetti , the portions are very large so you can have it split in half and "order a small" . Overall , it was good just depended on what you ordered. The service was excellent so we will return .

“Good ole diner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

Loved the staff and food. Great place for a good family meal. We would go back. Right outside the gate so it's a great location when spending a day at the park.

“My New Favorite in West Glacier”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

We have always eaten at the restaurant in Apgar Village but have been increasingly disgusted with it and vowed to never eat there again. This time we stayed next door at the West Glacier Motel, and you get a 10% discount at the restaurant if you show them your key or bill.
We had breakfast, the service could not have been better, the food was perfect, with crispy hash browns just the way I like them. Prices were reasonable, which is nice for this area.
Several days later when we made our way home through the park, we again stopped here for Lunch. The place was crowded, but hardly took anytime to seat us (we don't mind sitting at the counter when we are hungry). I had the Scoop and a Dip (2 soups of the day, I had Clam Chowder and it was very good and I am picky about my Chowder) and a scoop of Tuna Salad on lettuce. Both were very good. I topped it off with a scoop of Salted Caramel Ice-cream in a waffle cone for $3.25, nice because the waffle cone did not cost extra!
The Servers really hustled and were pleasant. The staff all worked together well.
Will return to this place again and again.

“Great place for breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

Never tried other meals here, but really enjoyed our breakfasts here. Very good service, if you order coffee, they leave a pot on the table. Nicely prepared basic dishes, excellent pancakes with huckleberry syrup.

“Comfortable and enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

We eat here every time we come to Glacier. The food is good, you can order drinks from the bar next door (Remember in the past we had to get them ourselves). It isn't too expensive.
What else can I say, if you are hungry, eat here.
