This a fav of my inlaws and it did not disappoint Friday night. Our party of seven was quickly seated at a reserved and prepared table. Service was very good although it was a busy night. I had the Soba noodle cake dish with chicken which was unusual but very tasty. Others had the various burger options which are huge. The Pacific salad came with a vary generous portion of grilled salmon. The house specialty huckleberry pie was sold out but the Muddy Laughing Horse dessert was a very worthy substitute. Surprisingly good dining in the middle of no where.

Swan Lake is a town so small that if you started to change a radio station at one end of the town, you'd finish at the other end. BUT, in the middle is a fabulous little Inn with a one-of-a-kind kitchen and menu for a place this out of the way. Kathleen is the owner and she simply does what us baseball aficionados would call knock the cover off the ball. Go on the Laughing Horse website, take a look at the menu, then find Swan Lake on the map and tell me how those two go together. If you're in Northwest Montana just make it a point to come through. The meal will be well worth it. I'm taking my wife and daughter there this Sunday, and won't be able to review that since it's so close to this, but big deal.

So what you ask? Ten years of traveling and dining in small, privately-owned and exceptional locations like Teton Ridge Ranch and Bear Creek Lodge give us all the credibility we need to endorse Kathleen Moon's Laughing Horse Lodge. Set alongside Swan Lake in Swan Lake Montana, the ambience is pure upscale Montana. The food is excellent, wine choices perfect. And you haven't lived until the house parrot walks across the floor and climbs up your leg to set on your shoulder.
By car, on horse back, in a kayak, make your way to the Laughing Horse. It's just 15 miles south of Bigfork, Montana another great town to visit.

We drove 100 miles round trip to go to Laughing Horse just for dinner, on the recommendation of friends. It was well worth the trip. Not only was the food very fresh, but the layered flavors made it unusually special. The menu provides very attractive dishes, and will appeal to people tired of seeing the same old menu items. The restaurant's rather unappealing exterior shouldn't put you off, as the rustic, upscale atmosphere inside is quite inviting and "homey". Be sure to make a reservation before you set out, as even on a weekday night it was fully booked.
Will definitely go back.
