We came here for dinner after a friend recommend it. It was great! We sat on the patio and enjoyed our dinner. If we are ever back in Columbia Falls, we will stop in again!

Cassie was so welcoming -- just what a traveler needs after a long day on the road! Dinner was tasty (ribeye, baked potato, salad, etc.) and taking a SCOOP of huckleberry ice cream back to the hotel was a great decision!

Good eatery with a fairly wide choice. Excellent service and very friendly staff. You can have the menu from the Back Room in the main dining room if you want.
