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.

Stopped here for breakfast while touring Glacier park. Ancient inside and out, but prices have kept up with the time and then some. The French toast was made with bland, thinly sliced bread. My wife's omlette was soggy due to the use of sliced, not diced tomato. Service was fine; I only wish the food was better than I can... More

We had a very friendly waitress and excellent onion rings....BUT...the restaurant was too noisy, too crowded (I was closer to the lady at the next table than to my partner on the other side of the table), too cold, and...they got my order wrong. A veggie patty cheese burger...WITHOUT...you guessed it...CHEESE. Huge disappointment!

Ordered their ranch steak rare with baked potato and "vegetable." Steak was soooo overcooked, no baked potato ... they had run out of them, a small bowl of peas that were disgusting and 4 small carrot slices. Was then brought, after asking for alternative potato choice, mashed potatoes with boring gravy. Apparently the locals love this place as the parking... More

We had breakfast there twice and the food was excellent both times. The service is excellent and the portions are great.

Must be a locals place. Food was ok, service was ok. Should have tried the Backroom instead. Meat- both pork chop & chicken fried steak were dry. Thank goodness for brown gravy.
