Chicken Finger Salad was good. Very dated, not as clean as it could be. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable.

“Good Food, Terrible Service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

We went through Seeley Lake on our way to Whitefish, and stopped here for some lunch. The sign said to seat yourself, so we did, and that was the last good service we got. It took the one waitress over 10 minutes to bring us water, menus to come much later. Granted, she had a 6-top and a 5-top to serve, but if she had been more efficient, or if she had even paid attention to what was going on around her, she could easily have handled that amount of people.

When we finally got menus, then finally got our orders in, then finally got our orders, I have to say the food was good. My husband had a cheeseburger that he said was very good, and I had an excellent chicken salad sandwich. But not only was the waitress slower than molasses (and she was young), the kitchen was just as bad.

HOWEVER...in the middle of our meal, the shift changed, and a new waitress and kitchen staff came in, and they knew what they were doing. Everything was quick, efficient, and though we did not benefit from this crew, hopefully people coming in behind us did.

“Finger Lickin' Good Chickin'”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

Okay, I don't normally eat fried chicken, BUT, if you just happen to be driving through the Swan Mtn. Range on your way to Glacier National Park or if you just made the wrong turn and got lost in the mountains and are starving and all of a sudden you see a giant chicken, STOP. That's it. Stop, order, eat and have a cold beer to wash it all down!
This place has got the art of fried chicken down to a science. You'll never buy store cooked chicken or go to the colonel's again once you've placed your mouth over this steaming hot chicken fresh from the fryer. The outer crush was perfectly thin, crisp, buttery and melted in your mouth as you bit down into the hot juicy meat that was perfectly cooked. No fat, no weird chicken stuff, just pure fried chicken that I must admit will call me back over and over again.
Sure it might be around 90 minutes down a forest shrouded road with mountain lakes, streams, bear crossing, deer and elk, eagle and rodents, but I'll take that any day when compared to the concrete jungle.
2 meals, 2 beers, one extra fry (no charge) all under $20 bucks.... That is something worth doing again.
It takes 25 minutes for them to cook that chicken to perfection so have an extra beer while you wait!

“Good food, basic venue”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013

The Chicken Coop is a good place to check out but nothing special. The venue was busy when we went but the service was slow considering the number of people working in the kitchen. The food was nice, I had a burger and fries.

“Good Breakfast”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

I love this place for the breakfast. In my opinion, they serve the best breakfast in town for the price. Your coffee is included in the price of your breakfast. Who could ask for more!
