“A surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

This was such a surprise...the menu and creations were something you would find in San Francisco or New York...varied and interesting. We started with the pate platter ($14). Each of the pates was flavorful and different...it had very ample servings...after that I tried the Udon with shrimp which was incredible...a bit spicy but very good...my husband had the veal...also very tasty and an ample serving...
I would give it an excellent as the food and service were both enjoyable...
I found the fact that they charged $5 for bread and butter very strange (I heard a waiter say it was because they saw it wasted in the past) and when we asked for more crackers for our $14 pate plate the server looked concerned about going to ask for more and looked doubtful that we would get any more...we did get 5 more little crackers...I think it is all classy and upscale...the owners should be a little less penny-wise and pound foolish...otherwise...go there!!

“Lots of stars.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Great food and reasonably priced. The remodel on the old structure was top shelf. A pizza rivaling that from Peter Pence's Pizza Parlor days would be okay.

“Terrific choice in West Glacier Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

The Belton Chalet in West Glacier, Montana, was by far our favorite meal of our entire vacation trip through South Dakota, Wyoming and Montana. It's an outstanding restaurant, reasonably priced with an extremely friendly staff.

We read about this place in the guidebook but we couldn’t find it. But we stumbled across it, and did a u-turn on the highway to get there. It's on the south side of highway 2, just south of the West Glacier Park Amtrak train station.

We arrived right around dusk without a reservation, and we waited in the bar for our table to become available. The bar had a great selection of draft beers (Patti loved the Tamarack Yard Sale Amber beer, I had the Trout Slayer, which was also good but not as good as the Tamarack).

The wait was about an hour without a reservation on a Saturday night, but the cozy bar was fun and the bartender was engaging.

The wait was well worth it. The service was fantastic and the food was terrific. I tried the buffalo meatloaf on the recommendation of the guidebook and it was excellent.

We didn't return to this place during our stay as we wanted to try some of the other places in the area, but we regretted that as this was the best place that we tried in the area.

“Great recommendation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

We flew into Glacier to do some hiking, never expected the great dining experience we had at Belton. We were having a drink at The Lodge at Whitefish Lake and were told by the bartender (Chappy) not to miss the Belton. The food was great, the service very friendly and the experience unbelievable not only because of the great cuisine but also the story telling by Martin, a regular patron at the Chateau.

“Surprisingly Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Inventive food right at Glacier National Park west entrance. Meals were so good the first night (seared marlin and steak) that we ate here the second night as well. Unfortunately, second night was still good but not as spectacular (trout and steak). Very good value.
