It doesn't look like much from the outside, the seats and tables are kind of plain, and the lighting seemed permanently set at "saloon dim". The food is a world above that first impression, so good that I was actually surprised... so stop here if you're any where near East Glacier for some top-shelf sandwiches and local brews.

Consistently very good food. Not much atmosphere but food makes up for it. Homemade salad dressings, great steak sandwiches, delicious salmon. This is one of our fav restaurants in tiny East Glacier Park, MT.

Our small group tried several of the local beer options. We found a couple excellent options that we later purchased to bring home. We didn't have food, but the food menu looked very tempting. Our service was great and it was very, very reasonably priced!

We had the special of the day and it was great. The steak was actually cooked the way I liked it, Medium Rare. Most restaurants do not cook it like that. It was perfect. The server was very friendly. We actually saw a bear on the hill across the street.

This is more of a bar than a restaurant. It was not busy when we first arrived...no one at the bar...but as the evening progressed with more folks at the bar, less and less attention was given to getting us our meal. To be honest, neither myself or my husband can remember what we had to it. It was that... More

The waitress who seated us and served us was not at all friendly and it felt as if we were imposing on her. Not flexible at all in accommodating our needs - cannot get pizza with different sauce on each half. Long wait for our food- approximately 45 minutes- waitress did not check on us during this wait. The pizza... More

Excellent food and service! Looks sketchy on the outside but don't let it fool you! We were so glad you were open late and off season. We plan our trip so we can come there for dinner.

The owners of our cabin recommended this to us- and the food was great- I had halibut and my husband had salmon- both were cooked very well. My sautéed vegetables we fantastic- whatever sauce they used on them I wanted to lick off the plate! Our service wasn't the best- as we were never asked if we wanted another drink... More

My husband and I ate here 2 nights in a row during our visit to East Glacier. The food was good,especially the chili. Michael was a great waiter! Would definitely eat here again when in the area.

We ate here twice while staying nearby. The food was good, no complaints from the kids. The staff was very friendly and served us after we got in very late after a long day of driving, which was very much appreciated. They also gave us suggestions on some of the areas to visit and such. Good little spot.
