I booked several months in advance from Canada, they responded within an hour and were pleasent and helpful. Amazing staff and food, beautiful presentation, large portions and great menu offerings, something for everyone. The Log building and grounds were perfectly maintained, inside the restaurant is beautiful and fitting for Montana. Can't say enough about our visit.

Surprising place, looks like a golf course restaurant, but presents really good food. Great mix of people, golfers, families, people in shorts, people dressed for the evening. The food is upscale, the service is first rate, the setting is patterned after national park inns. Good wine selection with reasonable pricing. A fun experience.

We were looking for a good steak and the front desk at our motel recommended this place. Since it is located at the country club we were a little apprehensive about being properly dressed, but no problem. Nice but casual atmosphere. We were immediately seated and immediately waited on. The entire meal was flawlessly served. Drinks and food arrived quickly.... More

My folks came to this restaurant on their first anniversary in 1956. My husband and I have celebrated our anniversary every year we have visited in the Valley since 1990. 26 years times four times per year. Never less than top drawer. My favorite restaurant in Montana.

If you visit Glacier National Park and go into Whitefish for dinner, this is one of the best restaurants in the area and well worth a visit.

We had the Alaska King Crab and the Filet Mignon. Both were amazing! Filet was fork tender. I had the soup, beef and potato, so very good. Sour dough bread was good. I loved how attentive the staff was. Such a special meal/evening! Thanks!

Steak dinner and excellent music. Very popular and crowded. Went with friends who live in Whitefish fulltime and this is one of their favorite places to eat. The service was great, wine and beer selection was fine and we enjoyed our steaks.

Fantastic food, excellent service, beautiful surroundings. It has it all!! Perfect for a special occasion. Reservations were a very good idea, it was crowded when we arrived. Did have a dessert, but they looked wonderful.

THIS is the place to have dinner when visiting the Glacier Park area. Dinners are gourmet, served in the restaurant's beautiful Old Faithful Inn style of great RR hotels. It is difficult if not impossible to find a better menu in Montana. I have dined here well over a dozen times over the years and never been disappointed. Christmas season... More
