The food is always excellent but sometimes the wait can be 30+minutes. Our favorite place to eat in town. The staff is always friendly. Highly recommend this restaurant!

This is a diner with lots of choices. Basically a meat and 3 place with lots of breakfast choices. We enjoyed their veggie burger (and glad to find it in meat country). Beer is served. Desserts looked great. Service was good and personable. Made you feel like you were just another local. Good place to try.

Was wondering if Guy Fieri had been here yet. On main road to Glacier National Park. Crowded for Sunday lunch in October showing local support. Not gourmet but diner food done very well.

We went there for our breakfast...this place and its attached Back Room made the trip to Columbia Falls worthwhile. Don't got there if you are on a diet. The food was excellent and the portions huge. You can tell it is popular with the locals, and the waitress certainly adds some color to the service.

We came later and were seated in the Nite Owl, but were given menus for Nite Owl and the Back Room. My husband chose barbecue ribs, slaw, and beans from the Back Room and his food was good. Our friend and I ordered from the Nite Owl and the food was not good. The service was average, but this did... More

Stopped here for breakfast on a Sunday morning. The place was busy, but we were able to find a seat at the counter. The servers were super speedy and attentive. Food was good. My husband said biscuits and gravy was really good.

Thank Amy B
