Traveling from Glacier National Park to Yellowstone. We always look for good local restaurants. This one definitely fits the bill. Huge portions at reasonable prices. Our favorites were biscuits and gravy, chicken and waffles and the crispy chicken salad. All fresh products and tastes like...home cooking!More

The easy location off the freeway is great and it has plenty of parking area. The restaurant is in a historical building. The menu is quite varied with great sounding dishes, making it hard to decide on only one dish each😋. We opted for the...turkey bacon melt and the Monte Cristo. Both sandwiches were delicious and were served with delicious crispy fries. The staff was very friendly.More

Stopped here for a late lunch. Lots of great menu items to choose from. We had the fish and chips, and rib platter. Very good beer batter fries with both. Service was top notch. Enjoyed it very much.

We have a very good dinner meal here. There are plenty of choices for adults and children. Located in an historic building, it was a pleasure to eat there. We had entree salads and one had beef stroganoff. Service was very helpful and friendly.

I had to get some gas and decided to try out this restaurant. And I'm glad that I did! the restaurant has an old school style feeling to it. Great classic American Diner. The staff were friendly and the food was very delicious. I ordered...the ham and eggs which was a great portion. I highly recommend this place if you are passing by ;)More

We ordered meat and eggs, $11.25 each, and were completely satisfied. The bacon was not the usual "see through" but real solid meat!

Stopped on my way back from Garnet ghost town. Very good burger, also very good fries. Service was great. Relatively small "just off the highway" type place. Seems to be popular. I would stop again if in the area. Busy at 2:30 PM on a...Sunday.More

I always like to go here for breakfast when I’m in town. I went here recently with seven friends. They got us in right away and our breakfast came out quickly and was delicious. Very big portions and very friendly staff.

I had to stop for the night & saw the River City Grill so I went & checked it out. I hadn’t eaten since the night before. I ordered a cup of chicken noodle soup. It was great. I had the big burger that has...ham, bacon, & mushrooms with sweet potato fries. When it got to the table I was shocked. It was HUGE. Well I made it thru the burger & 3/4 of the fries & I had to throw in the towel. No desert for me tonight. I can’t wait to eat there again.More

This is a fun, quaint old fashion type diner. I ordered the fish and chips and it was delicious. The fries are battered for extra crispiness and thick cut. The fish was moist and delicate cod. I was happy with my meal and also the...service.More

Any time we go to Missoula we stop and ask for Julie. Food is always excellent no matter what meal you eat. The service is the best no matter who waits on you but Julie is our favorite. Will continue to go any time we...are in the area.More

Spent the winter working in Missoula and living just outside of Bonner. This was my place to eat out on payday. Good food, nice place, friendly staff, nice music in the background, basically a good and decent family or working man’s place. Always had a...newspaper, outstanding breakfast and rhubarb crisp with vanilla ice cream.More
