Maybe something to do with the feedback? The restaurant business is not for everyone. We also had some not-too-enjoyable meals here, mixed in with the stylish ambiance and gorgeous views.

Despite being censured by the health department and hearing promises by the owner to clean the place up we dedided to give it one more try no service until we asked kids serving tables who could not place orders for liqour or wine because they were under age The owner trying to be the cook and waitress (she is elderly and time she give it up) the place is chaos. We finally got a drink and others in the resturant were leaving beacause of the time for their food we simply left
Wait until new owners before you go to this place or you are going to have a bad expierence

Did not experience the food...didn't stick around long enough. Was greeted rudely by the waitress complaining she was the only one there, a comment we heard no less than 5 times along with, "IM DOING THE BEST I CAN" Only 4 tables were occupied with 2 people. 30 minutes later we got one of ours drinks.. a bottle beer with a glass..wine didnt come. The Beer had chunks in it..literally. Meanwhile the couple next to us was complaining about the salad. When told there were no orange slices for the beer, I asked for lemon. 10 minutes later, still no wine the waitress swooped by and set down a plate with 2 rotten lemon slices complete with mold on the rind. Imagining what the fish was like after seeing the lemon we left. We were assuming that the teen who was poorly dressed that delivered the salad to the next table must have been the cook too!! What a shame..it is a delightful little place for atmosphere.

We discovered BigFork and the Swan River Inn on our way to Glacier National Park.

We sat upstairs overlooking the lake, very pleasant.

After reviewing the menu, decided on the the "Captain's Platter" which was similar to a cioppino. It turned out to be one of the best, if not the best, such preparation that I have experienced. Lots of seafood and fish and a "to die for" sauce. The service was excellent as well.

Recommend Swan River Inn for dinner and the town looks quite interesting as well!
