The restaurant is almost out of the city and its on the left driving out so easier to overlook. It was a good experience, so if you do miss it driving out, it's worth a turn around. We ordered a sandwich (roast beef and ham I think?) but actually got turkey and ham. The bread we had chosen, multigrain, was... More

This is a very nice little restaurant located on US-2. Our friends who live nearby recommended this place for lunch, and we are pleased that we went. While the choices are fairly familiar lunch items, they are very well prepared. My BLT with avocado was very good, and my wife's loaded hot dog was great as well. Nice place to... More

Great hamburgers, salads and soups. They added beer and wine this year. We eat here every year when we attend the STOKR bicycle event in May.

This is not a big place and has few parking spaces. Near the north edge of town and easy to miss headed South if you aren't looking for it. Mostly burgers but an interesting choice of meats to put inside...I like the Bison Burger. This is a family operation (mostly) and is usually open 8am - 8pm...but not Sunday. Hours... More

This won the 2014 Best of the Best award in Libby. I can see why. The food is fresh and delicious. My grass-fed Longhorn burger had less calories than chicken and tasted great. It came with a unique blend of garlic cheese and artichoke hearts, tasted wonderful. Salad was crispy and colorful, service was perfect. A great place for good... More

Driving from Idaho to Kalispell on Highway 2 doesn't provide a lot of options for lunch. Fortunately in Libby, one of a handful of places with food choices on the route, there's the Last Straw Café. I wouldn't call it great, but it's a little gem out in the middle of the Nowhere neighborhood. It's a fairly small nondescript diner,... More
