Charming and historic dining room. Food is quite good. Excellent soups, steaks, pot roast, mashed potatoes, and steaks. Fresh veggies cooked correctly (not mushy). Excellent wine and cocktail menu, and friendly, young, global staff.

We had a very good dining experience at the Great Northern Dining Room. The Huckleberry margaritas are excellent and highly recommended (they can be ordered in the bar also). I had the sirloin steak and my wife had the lemon thyme chicken. She must eat...More

We had lunch in the Great Northern Dining Room, and enjoyed our meal. The service was nice, and the food good, but it was a tad on the expensive side. Still, the atmosphere was delightful and I'd happily return.

Food was generally good. The first day were were there, the staff appeared to be new and the service disorganized. The next day, more experienced staff made a huge change. Breakfast was also good and there was a buffet. Just a little pricey.

Few dining choices on East side of park. Good food; nice selection with good drinks and wine; does not take reservation so would go earlier if possible

One of the first old style lodges in Glacier Park. Built in 1910 by the railroad, for eastern folks. We shared a salad and another plate. The food was good, but the dining room and surrounding lodge was spectacular. Well worth the time to explore.
