We really enjoyed our vist site. I spent a while checking out their fab collection of kids pedal car hanging above my head. The service was great and the buffalo chicken wings were especially good.

My dining companions had large egg dishes and one had a pancake...it was as large as the plate. If I ever go back to Kalispell, I'll make sure to go back to... More
