Being a military person I must say you will be made to feel unwelcome here. I've been to this establishment twice thus far in the 14 season and have been treated noticeably different than other patrons. The bartender on both occasions was curt to put it mildly. On to affordability, well, bring plenty of money as the costs are high.... More

Like some of the other reviewers I ate here because it was across a small street from my motel. The people were nice and polite, they were also helpful. They made good recommendations to me and the wife. We ate both breakfast and dinner here. Main courses were well priced and tasty. The desserts, Huckleberry Cream pie and Carrot Cake... More

Swung in here because it was wihin walking distance of the motel I stayed in. The staff were extremely friendly. The buffalo burger I tried was great and the coffee, in particular, was fantastic.

The bar is small and comprises one of the seven or so buildings that make up West Glacier. The beer prices are not too outrageous and the bartender was a great guy who truly knows the area. Whether you drink or not it is worth checking in just to get a rundown on the hiking trails and other things to... More

Don't exactly know why but this is what some of the locals call the West Glacier Bar. Funky but fun and always good service. Some great bargains on beers and never chinsy on a cocktail pour. A must go to if you want local

"Midwestern" = very welcoming and friendly! West Glacier Restaurant/Cafe is spacious with both table and counter seating. I ordered a grilled pastrami sandwich and a cup of French onion soup. The sandwich featured a generous helping of pastrami and Swiss cheese, but was slightly over cooked to my taste. The French onion soup was sub-standard, with too many bread cubes.... More

Basic cafe food. Nice pies. Nice burgers and ice cream. Leisurely service. Good place to have a quiet lunch before heading out again for the afternoon's activities.

Might be economical for tourists used to big city prices, but there are other watering holes in Montana if you're thirsty!

Have been stopping at this place for over 40 years. Always good service, friendly and great breakfast. Not sure if the ownership or management have changed but I hope not. I love the old-fashioned, no-nonsense down-home place.

Good service and decent food. If you don't feel like sitting in a grand dining room, this works well. Would definitely go again.
