Eddie’s Cafe is unique because it’s located within the hustle and bustle of Apgar Village. The village has a long history and is very central to Glacier National Park. You can dine inside to beat the heat or take your lunch out to the water!
Northern Lights Saloon, Polebridge
Exploring Polebridge is a MUST do on your Glacier trip. It’s a cute, little town with lots of history and of course, some good, delicious grub. While there are several good eateries in Polebridge, one of our favorites is the Northern Lights Saloon. They have many options, including delicious burgers and perfect pizza.
Most seating is outside, nestled on the edge of the North Fork. After you finish eating your meal, swing next door to Polebridge Mercantile. They have famous huckleberry bear claws, along with other baked goods, to keep you fueled while exploring.
Favorite meal? The buffalo burger, HANDS DOWN. It's amazing.
Fun fact: the saloon was the original home of the founders of Polebridge in 1912. They built the store and opened it in 1914. The saloon is filled with history, family fun and they even have live music in the summer months!
Many Glacier Hotel, Many Glacier
Searching for dinner with a view? Many Glacier Hotel will provide a view to die for! They have a wide array of dishes to choose from, while integrating a touch of Montana tradition into each meal.
Favorite meal? We love the Snake River Farms Wagyu Top Sirloin or the Grilled Wild Alaska Salmon, both will never steer you wrong!
This is a little bit further than the other two restaurants we’ve recommended, but it is worth the drive. From the history within the walls, to the unforgettable views, to the amazing service, it’s an overall great experience. The quality of food is just the icing on the cake!
