We have tried several times to eat at Hops since moving to Kalispell 6 weeks ago, but there was always a long line. We went on a Monday right at their 5 p.m. opening time and were seated immediately. Had a Bacon/Brie Burger. Excellent taste due to choice ground beef--1/2 pound. Small dining room. I have eaten here in the... More

Montana is not what I call a foodie state, I'm sure some would disagree. Around Glacier National Park there really isn't much that is very impressive food wise. This place was one of the best we ate at during our stay.

Atmosphere of this restaurant was excellent. Service was some of the best I've seen in a while. Excellent selection of beers on tap. Excellent food choices with excellent presentation. This restaurant is definitely not cheap, but is still within the realm of reason. Definitely worth checking out.

If you just look online at the menu you will find burgers and such that you would expect a brewpub, but if you call and check the specials you will find the chef has created four or five items for the night specials and they have all been very special... My steak with fresh morels and asparagus was cooked to... More

This is a small place, and popular! We walked in, and there isn't really an entry to speak of, but a very nice gentleman greeted us promptly. There was a wait, so he took our name and phone number. We then went to a bench outside, and he called with a table within about 15 minutes. He was very kind... More

This is easily Kalispell's best fine dining facility. With tasty variations of American favorites, this place can not be beaten!

Very popular local place that fills up quick. We only had about a 15 min wait at 5:30pm on a Wednesday night but considering they open at 5pm that gives you an idea of their popularity. I had a Yak burger and my husband a basic burger and we split them for comparison. The basic burger was good but the... More

We visited based on the reviews and loved it. The restaurant is small. By 5:30, all tables were full. But they have plenty of very attentive staff. The buffalo burger was great. The trout special was amazing. The calamari salad was exceptional. We will definitely return. By far the best place we have tried in Kalispell.
