We returned to East Glacier on vacation for the first time since July 2010. At that time we came to the Whistle Stop on a recommendation from a travel guide. We ended up coming for breakfast everyday and also came for the Huckleberry pie. Needless to say we couldn’t wait to return here in 2018. We were extremely disappointed. I am not sure if it has different owners since 2010. The hash browns went from scratch made potatoes with onions and peppers to some kind of deep fried store bought potatoes with little to no onions, peppers or even flavor. The giant cinnamon rolls are gone. The service was ok but the food is substantially worse. We probably ate here 5 times in 2010. We went once and didn’t return the 6 days we spent in East Glacier. I’m now sorry I recommended this place to so many people over the last 8 years.

We've eaten here once before and it was pretty good. So this time, the food was good, but the service was horrible and they were closing for the season in a few days, so they were out of a lot of things. This place isn't much different from other dining establishments in East Glacier. With one exception (Serrano's Mexican) you're never going to find anything more than average food here. And toward the end of the season, as most places prepare to close up for the winter, you'll likely encounter what we did...even fewer choices because the restaurants aren't restocking this late in the season.

Stopped in for breakfast on a whim the first morning of our GNP trip... we were not disappointed!! I thought my husband was going to collapse due to his omelette being so incredibly delicious- he ordered the French Connection and I had the Pear Blue Cheese. Seriously. It was that good. So good, in fact, that we returned at the end of our trip for dinner and our final breakfast before heading home. Great little place with awesome omelette choices, amazing stuffed French toast, excellent service!!

The food is just decent and the bbq basket just correct.
AZnd for a restaurant saying having the best huckleberry pie in Montana, what a deception...
A refrigerated pie, and if you ask to be warmed they said it is not necessary...
More preserve than fruit...
If you xwant a real nice huckleberry pie : Two sisters in Babb, Highlanf restaurant in West Glacier and PArk grill at St mary are the adress...: fruits and fruits and fruits...
