The location is at the Swiftcurrent Inn where several of the best trails in Glacier are located. After a long day on the trail, it was a pleasant surprise to find good, fresh food at a reasonable price. Out of 6 nights in this are we ate here 3 times.

If you're staying in or visiting the Many Glacier area, which has some of the top trailheads in GNP within walking distance of the rooms, you'll get to know Nell's quite well. Either that or drive a half hour to St. Mary or over an hour to East Glacier. Luckily, the food and service are pretty good, just be sure... More

Nells is located at the Swiftcurrent Motor Inn, less than one mile from Many Glacier Lodge. It’s one of the best places to have breakfast for a number of reasons. The first is that several of the West Many Glacier National Park trail heads are located here, and the second is that early in the morning there is abundant parking.... More

We were seated right before the dinner crowd arrived. I was glad, as the service was slow and once the dining room was full, I'm sure it only got worse. There were five in our party and we had a variety of items. Everything was good, from the vegan chili to the turkey and dressing dinner. They did say they... More

I had late lunch one day & dinner the next day & both times, The service was great & food was tasty. Free wi-fi in the dining area. This is the only place to eat if you are staying at Swift Current unless you drive to Baab or St. Mary's which is 30 mins away outside the park.

After reading all the good reviews and just having to see the place what a big disappointment. The food was not good and the service worse. Maybe it was because the end of the season is drawing near, or just the server we had but still no excuse for such poor service.

We hiked to Grinnell Lake and ALMOST to Grinnell Glacier. Afterwards, we were going to head to Many Glacier hotel for dinner, but decided to head over to Swiftcurrent Lodge instead. When we arrived, the wait was about 45 minutes. However, we were not seated until at least an hour later. Once seated, we quickly decided on our order, but... More

We ate here after hiking to Grinnell glacier. We got there right after 5pm when their dinner menu kicks in. We had the ruby red trout with sides of kale&quinoa salad and beet salad. The trout was delicious! The kale salad was good also. The beet salad was just beets with a few sunflower seeds sprinkled on top, nothing fantastic.... More

We had breakfast, lunch and diner there. The food was good and the people were nice. Diner was busy so we have to wait a little.
