Ptarmigan Dining Room Review

This newly remodeled dining room is one of the most picturesque dining spots in the park—with stunning views of Grinnell Point over Swiftcurrent Lake to be enjoyed through its massive windows. French-American cuisine is served amid Swiss-style decor. Signature dishes include the wild game sausage sampler, buffalo Stroganoff, and Rocky Mountain trout. Each night there's a chef's special such as fresh fish or pork prime rib with a huckleberry demi-glace. Pop into the adjacent Swiss Lounge to enjoy a Montana microbrew or a huckleberry daiquiri before or after dinner.

    View and nice trouts

    Effectively, the view here is a must. The service, by european students is just as you want : with care, but not too present. The room itself has its good point(high ceiling,large windows) and its anachronic points(the fanions, you seem like in a '50 moovie-where is heidi??). The venaison's sausages sampler is good and the grilled trouts are excellent. Huckleberries iec cream is a good choice for desert. Choice of wine by glass is correct. So a nive view and a good meal. For a more casual diner, the Garden restaurant at the swiftcurrent motel is a good choice : breakfast are terrific, the pizzas seem good and the specials are nice. Erik.
