“Excellent meal in a historic building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Josh at Glacier Guides Lodge recommended this restaurant and it was an excellent choice. I had a strawberry salad with the most amazing goat cheese and outstanding house red wine. My husband had a flatiron steak, an evening special, that he said was very good. The ice cream is exceptionally dellicious.

Service was stellar - an experienced waiter and an efficient kitchen. The experience was not rushed, but went smoothly and was very enjoyable.

The historic building was is right across the street from the train station and was built by the Great Northern railroad.

“Fine Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

We ate at the bar because the restaurant was so busy. This turned out to be one of the best eating experiences of our trip because of the bartender, KATY! She was the only bartender in this busy restaurant, and flew through her work. It was a joy watching her. But she was wonderfully personable, and informative about the different menu choices. We went back the next night for dessert so that we could chat with Katy again. Oh, and the food was very good also.

“I would go back just for the salad dressing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We stayed two nights at the Belton, but only ate at the restaurant once as we arrived too late the first night. What a pleasant experience it was! The wine was wonderful, and a good variety available.. The salads were original and fresh, the entrees were varied and wonderful. Our waitress was easy going and attentive without hovering. The berry crisp with huckleberry ice cream was something I shall dream about...

“Enjoyable Meal in Beautiful Setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

We were looking forward to our meal at Belton Grill ever since we began planning our vacation to Glacier NP. Unfortunately the restaurant didn't quite live up to our expectations. Partially may have been just the situation. We went here after a long day in the park and were tired. The day had been hot and the restaurant was hot too. We opted not to wait for a table on the patio, but I didn't realize how hot and uncomfortable it was inside. I know that as a historic inn and restaurant they don't have air conditioning, and I'm not asking for it, but that affected our dining experience. The entrees were the hi-light of the night. The appetizer and dessert were only fair.

The service was good not great. My wife and I both had good meals but they weren't the memorable meals of the trip we had anticipated. If I return to the area, especially in the fall or winter I will give them another chance.

My take-away is go if you have time and energy, but don't make Belton Grill a must dine experience. We would probably have been happier with a burger and fries from the dinner at the entrance to the park in hind sight.

“Gem in West Glacier!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

Tasty fresh food! An eclectic menu if random. From crab cakes to emu carpaccio, we enjoyed almost everything we ordered. We ordered a variety of appetizers to share. 3 of us shared 5 appetizers for dinner. We highly recommend the crab cakes, pulled pork tostada and Mediterranean sampler (not completely sure of the name). The only dish that left us all unsatisfied was the shrimp skewers. They were barely grilled and had little flavor. The service was great. Our server really made an effort to help us select a bottle of wine that we would all enjoy. This restaurant was a nice surprise considering the location.
