help with restaurants, groceries and food in GNP/YNP

Jump to last reply

We are leaving in a few weeks for a 13 day trip to Montana between GNP and YNP. None of us have been to Glaicer and it has been over 20 years since I have been to Yellowstone. There are 3 of us... Me, DH and 8yo DD.

I'm wondering what to plan for food and restaurants. We will bring our cooler with us so we can pack food but are grocery stores readily available? We are staying in Whitefish for most of the Glacier portion of the trip and West Yellowstone for the rest with detours to Red Lodge and Cody.

Also, are there many places to eat within either of the parks? I'm assuming the lodges have cafeterias and/or restaurants. If so, do I need to make reservations ahead of time?

Any recommendations as far as favorite places to eat (in Whitefish, GNP, REd Lodge, Cody, YNP) would be appreciated. I hear that somewhere near Glacier, there is a great place for huckleberry pie or ice cream? Yum!

Also, if you know of places to avoid, that is helpful too.

All I know for sure is one night we will do the Cowboy Dinner at the Roosevelt Lodge. Do I need to reserve that in advance?

Thanks so much for your help!
