“Good food, service was lacking.”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

The food was decent. They have a nice selection of burgers, sandwiches, and salads. We ordered inside and then sat outside. The waitress waited until the end of the meal to ask if we wanted anything to drink. It was good food, but I doubt we'll go back.

“Lively bar with good cheap food”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Was looking for a quick bite and a beer after a long day in Glacier. We stopped here as it had a large, loud crowd. You order your food at the back and it is delivered to your table. The food was good and the staff friendly.

“Great people watching!”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

This is where you can find a lot of locals mixing with tourists. It is a bit of a dive bar, but you're in MT, so that is to be expected. The bartenders won't take any s#$@, but they are great people. There is some great people watching to be done here. From drunk tourists to some local hiking/ski bums, it is a great place to mix and mingle!

“Great Neighborhood Meeting Place!”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

Great spot for locals, visitors, rich, ski bums, river rats, friends, friends-soon-to-be, etc. to have a beer and socialize. Love the burgers, gyros and fried green beans with ranch dressing.
