I ordered the third pound bacon cheezeburger and the cheeze fries. They make just about every part of this burger there and it tastes like it was created just for you. One thing that struck me after reading the menu was that they say "cheddar" cheeze instead of "American". I really enjoy cheeze but cheddar is at the top of... More

Prices have gone up quite a bit since I last visited a year ago. Still the same friendly service and decent food quality. I was disappointed that the caramel rolls now have canned caramel sauce instead of the yummy homemade sauce they used to have.

Stopped for late breakfast on our way to Missoula. Great huckleberry pancakes, loved the "crisp" on the corned beef hash. Great service and comfortable feel.

This is a great place to meet with folks and have a very good meal, while still able to hear one another speak, and not break the bank with the bill. Food is great, plenty of it, and the service is full of smiles. Sandwiches to steak, and all of it good. We particularly enjoy several of their salads, but... More

We had a great meal here recently while visiting Glacier. Fun atmosphere featuring old time peddle cars hanging from the ceiling. Nice menu...we split a crunchy chicken salad (delicious) and a pizza. The crust was a bit doughier than we like but it was still good. Very reasonable prices and friendly/efficient staff.

Went here on a Monday afternoon after seeing the Conrad Mansion, the restaurant is a few minutes from downtown. It says "Casino" on the outside but don't be afraid, it's a restaurant with a few slot machines at one end. The restaurant was clean, nice decor, toy race cars hanging from the celiling. We were seated promptly, the waitress was... More

We stop here every time we're in Kalispell. This time we thought it was above and beyond any other time. The huckleberry pancakes are great. You can order ala cart which I really enjoyed as I don't like a huge breakfast.
