Had a wonderful evening meal. The place was busy (tribute to their reputation), but our server was very attentive and timely. The food was delicious. Best meal during our week at Glacier!

We dropped into this restaurant after flying into Kalispell airport on the way to Glacier National Park. It appears to be a local favorite with friendly service. Great gluten free options!
