This is a good place to have a quick lunch or snack following your visit to the visitor center, portage Lake or one of the many hiking trails in the area. The menu is limited to basically soup salad and sandwiches.

A quaint lodge with a nice buffet line and pleasant staff. Great souvenir and local crafts store with reasonable prices. Nice place to grab a bite to eat either before or after the Portage Glacier Cruise and do a bit of shopping.
