The hosts are friendly and smiling all the time. They're long-time Montana residents running the hotel, campground, and restaurant for the last 13 years. We only had the huckleberry pie here, but a la mode, and it was absolutely delicious! My only nit - $7...More

Stopped there for Sunday (all you can eat) brunch. The cooks (for omelets or waffles) are very nice and cheerful. The fruit was fresh. You could have a Huckleberry muffin or a cinnamon roll. It already felt friendly as we walked in. It ended up...More

The atmosphere and staff (all from a single family) of this restaurant are delightful. We enjoyed the food, which was prepared right before our eyes.

Great food! Loved their use of local ingredients. Huckleberries were in season & we tried both their huckleberry lemonade (slushie-like) & huckleberry pie. Loved it. Our entrees were wonderful--bison burger cooked on the grill, chicken dishes with a locally-made sauce & pasta.

Homemade and healthy. Only complaint is that as an owner operated cafe they need to close to get a day off!!

This is a family run restaurant and the service is good. Everyone is nice and polite. The food though is average at best with nothing special. If you are truly hungry and need a place to eat right away, this place is OK but otherwise,...More
