The Back Room has the best barbecue ribs and chicken in the Flathead Valley. It is only open in the evenings; however, the "Night Owl" is open all day. When I say that "this is where the locals go" is not an exaggeration! I visited this morning with a client who is "upper-upper class." She could have eaten anyplace in the world; however, she took her friends to the "Back Room" last weekend. If one wants quality, over table clothes and crystal, this is the place to go. The food is fantastic, the service is great, and the price is amazingly low. I would recommend this to anyone who likes great food and "local color."

Delicious burger, jalapeño jack cheese, on FRY BREAD! Wonderful. And if they happen to have it, order the huckleberry ice cream. Yum! Great service!

We ate two nights at the Back Room, the first night was the Mothers Day Buffet which was well attended. Food was good and staff friendly and helpful. With that in mind we went back a second night and enjoyed our meal. There was about a twenty minute wait as we obviously picked the rush hour. The bread is delicious and the meal will leave you satisfied.

The service was excellent, our waitress was super friendly and offered us samples to try before ordering our meals. The BBQ was average, super salty. Their fry bread was great with house made honey butter. This is definitely a dive! A place to go if you are into comfort food and big portions.
