We wanted a nice lunch, so we chose this restaurant at the Many Glacier Hotel and we were glad we did! The parking lot is a little walk away with a hill and usually crowded, but there is plenty to see at this mountain lodge. The view is amazing and it is steeped in history. We got there around 1:00,... More

One of our dinners took 2 1/2 hours, and not because we particularly wanted it to. Service at this hotel was below par. However they set up a makeshift grab and go in the middle of the restaurant for breakfast. I grabbed coffee and bagels there two mornings. Priced was good for that, but still took twenty minutes.

To our surprise, our waiter was from Texas, our home state. He was very pleasant and advised on the best lunch choices. My husband and I both picked the cobb salad which was excellent.

The food was good, compared to the other National Park restaurants in the Lodges. You'll notice it'll be a bit overwhelming with all the tourists. Take a deep breath and enjoy your surroundings, it'll make things a lot easier.

The view from the dining room is stunning and service was great. Unfortunately, the food was just average.

We ate here for dinner and ordered the bison prime rib and it was cooked perfectly. The service was good especially considering the dining room was full. We also had ice cream for dessert while watching the sunset over the mountains. The view is excellent, but can be a little challenging in the late afternoon as they did not have... More

We decided to treat ourselves to eating at the hotel in Many Glacier while visiting. It was a short wait for the lunch hour, but the view and the food was worth the wait time. We were seated immediately and the view from our table was stunning. Our serving person was very friendly and made suggestions on what to order.... More

Everything about this restaurant made a good first impression, from the initial greeting of the hostess, to the crisp, clean table setting. To our delight we were seated at a table by the window with an outstanding view of the mountains surrounding Swiftcurrent Lake; from the Garden Wall, to Ptarmigan pass, with the prominent Grinnell Point peak. The dining room... More

You are awed by the views wherever you sit in the dining room. We were here for 3 nights and had breakfast and dinner every day. Food is sporadic, certain meals were excellent and others were just so-so. The problem can be in the service. If you go early to be seated the service is excellent. The one night we... More

Dining at the lodges in our national parks always makes the visit more special, and the Ptarmigan didn't disappoint. We were lucky enough to be seated at a table overlooking the lake as the sun began to set -- wow! And then, the food: loved the trout dip and the chili (bison, I think?) as starters. A lovely duck breast... More
