Prices have gone up quite a bit since I last visited a year ago. Still the same friendly service and decent food quality. I was disappointed that the caramel rolls now have canned caramel sauce instead of the yummy homemade sauce they used to have.

Stopped for late breakfast on our way to Missoula. Great huckleberry pancakes, loved the "crisp" on the corned beef hash. Great service and comfortable feel.

This is a great place to meet with folks and have a very good meal, while still able to hear one another speak, and not break the bank with the bill. Food is great, plenty of it, and the service is full of smiles. Sandwiches to steak, and all of it good. We particularly enjoy several of their salads, but... More

We had a great meal here recently while visiting Glacier. Fun atmosphere featuring old time peddle cars hanging from the ceiling. Nice menu...we split a crunchy chicken salad (delicious) and a pizza. The crust was a bit doughier than we like but it was still good. Very reasonable prices and friendly/efficient staff.

It says "Casino" on the outside but don't be afraid, it's a restaurant with a few slot machines at one end. The restaurant was clean, nice decor, toy race cars hanging from the celiling. We were seated promptly, the waitress was... More

Ordered Patty Melt and it came alone on A big plate. I had a side salad that came before , but my burger seemed lost. Presentation ! I think the food is good . Service was good. Waitress seemed a bit distracted .

We stop here every time we're in Kalispell. This time we thought it was above and beyond any other time. The huckleberry pancakes are great. You can order ala cart which I really enjoyed as I don't like a huge breakfast.

My husband & I went for the Monday Special where you buy the Special & get a 2nd one for five cents. It was pulled pork with corn on the cob, potato salad, a biscuit, & soup or salad. The corn was totally shriveled & dried up (we each tried one bite); the pork was drowned in BBQ sauce &... More
