We were staying by the west glacier entrance and stopped here for dinner. The waitress was super friendly as were some of the other patrons. We had the standard fare burgers which were well proportioned as were the side salads. The huckleberry shake was delicious....More

Located right outside of the Glacier Park West entrance this restaurant provides a good selection of foods and desserts. The ice cream was a hit with our family. Staff are pleasant and pricing is fair, considering the location. Stop by for a coffee or latte...More

Standard traditional American fare, but it really hit the spot on an unseasonably cold and rainy day. Friendly, helpful service really made my day better! I had the daily special, grilled ham and Swiss, and he had the turkey sandwich. We didn't partake, but there's...More

We just got ice cream which comes from Sweet Peaks which is the popular ice cream in the area. It was very good. They have very nice indoor and outdoor seating.

I can't say they have anything truly outstanding but if you want a decent meal in a large café-type environment instead of "upscale", this is your place in W. Glacier. Excellent "barista" and huckleberry pies/cobbler/ice cream.

Great quick stop before going to the park. The breakfast was really good. My husband like the burgers. I was a little disappointed with BLT, as the bacon was really thick, almost like ham. Great Fries. Overall a good meal.

Save room for the pies. They are really great. Good service and our food tasted great. Not fancy stuff but very satisfying. The dinner service ends at 7 and they won't seat anyone after that.

Either before you enter the Park or when exiting. Stop by here and grab a bite to eat. Good burgers and try a glass of huckleberry ice tea. So good! Great location and a Gift Shop. Traffic can be bad! Watch out for the little...More

I do not know that answer but I do know you can buy pie filling in very many stores in & around West Glacier. I had the barbecue sauce shipped to Florida!

I don't recall the restaurant having a TV. However, they are right beside a bar ( same owners, I believe because the alcoholic bevs came from there) and they MAY have one.

We welcome you to Glacier National Parks West Entrance as we have welcomed visitors for over sixty years. The restaurant and other West Glacier Mercantile buildings were constructed in 1938 at the junction of the Going to the Sun Road and US Highway 2. We are open mid May thru mid September, serving breakfast lunch and dinner. Our food is all home made, desserts are amazing and staff is exceptional. We are able to accommodate your group whatever the size. We are fully licensed so you may enjoy a cocktail with your meal and we do take out or sack lunches if you prefer to eat "on the fly". Stop in and check out our ice cream cones or huckleberry cream pie!
