We brought our guests here that were craving barbecue and hadn’t tried fry bread. We are never disappointed! We came before 5 and had less than a 10 minute wait for a table of 5. It was very busy by the time we left. Be aware - it is busy during tourist season. Nice portions, good tap beer selection, option of sides or salad. Fry bread comes with every order and it is the highlight! Lots of honey butter for the table. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. I highly recommend and will be back.

We were heading back to Whitefish from Glacier National Park and were so hungry. Not much to choose from as far as restaurants on the way but I saw the Nite Owl from the road so we gave it a try. We were pleasantly surprised. This is a basic restaurant with sandwiches and simple meals at a decent price. Not very many healthy choices but there was prompt and pleasant service and very tasty food. I had the broasted chicken and fried bread and a side. I didn't realize broasted means fried but it was delicious and that fried bread was really special. It reminded me of funnel cake. Yum. My husband had the club sandwich and was very happy as well.

The Back Room is great after a long day hiking in Glacier National Park. The food is so comforting and filling. We had the country style ribs with salad and fry bread for one meal and the 2nd was the pork medallions. The flavors were great, but the fry bread is amazing!

We had the greatest waitress, Allie, she took the time to explain the menu and beer offerings to us, was super friendly and fast. The food was good and plentiful. Very popular with the locals and recommended to us.
