We really enjoyed our Sunday breakfast at noon - and the historic building gives it a fantastic touch. The Ken Barkus sandwich was especially enjoyed by our daughter. Using local ingredients would take it to the next level.More

I had lunch here with my family on 07/04/17 while coming from a trip to Glacier National Park. Burgers and fries were good. Service was warm and welcoming. No problems. Recommend this restaurant for lunch. Total for two persons: $22.15, including tax, but not tip.
