Always a pleasure to stop in and eat. Service is friendly and prompt. Food is very good. Good selection on the menu. The soup of the day is usually also very good. We go often.

Enjoyed a wonderful meal tonight! We ordered Prime rib, chicken fried steak, ribeye steak and jumbo shrimp. Everyone was happy and satisfied when we left. Desserts were huge!! Coconut cream pie was amazing! Great food in a little Montana town.

The food is always very tasty and attractively served. Nice selection of dinner meals. We love their desserts although we seldom have room for any when we are through eating. It's best to order a Montana Mud pie with four forks!

I was in Montana on business and decided to take a less travelled route and discovered this great restaurant in Valier. The steak I had was great and the dessert was a homemade cherry cheesecake that would beat anything you might get in New York. I ate in their small bar area and had a great time talking with Bob,...

We've eaten here before on one of our road trips. This time we split a chicken entree added a salad and we were comfortably full. This is in the middle of nowhere so I consider it pretty good. The server was excellent.

Food was good, but they were out of walleye and prime rib, even tho we went at 1pm Sunday when they opened. Those were items we wanted😫... Passing thru, won't be back...

Better food than expected in the middle of no where.Service was excellent. We had the pasta dish. It was good but not exceptional. A bar area is in the front; the restaurant is in the back. We would definitely here again if we were in the area.

This place is a little out of the way but is well worth the time it takes to get there. Better get reservations on special occasions!

We went to visit the Yellowstone National Park and lived in Gardiner for one night. The hotel referred the lighthouse restaurant to us. We gave it a try and are glad we did it. Their salmon is so tender and juicy and appetizer steaming mix seafood is so good. Their home-made curry rice is one of the best we've tasted.... More

We were with a large group of people that had our own table upstairs. The service was very good and had a very pleasant atmosphere. The fish that I had was prepared very well.
