Fodor's Expert Review Ptarmigan Dining Room

$$$ Glacier National Park American

The picturesque Ptarmigan's massive windows afford stunning views of Grinnell Point over Swiftcurrent Lake. Known for using regional, sustainably sourced ingredients, the restaurant specializes in dishes such as house-smoked Montana trout, braised bison short ribs, and roasted duck with Flathead cherry chutney. Gluten-free and vegan dishes are also served. Save room for the huckleberry cobbler. Before or after dinner, pop into the adjacent Swiss Lounge to enjoy a Montana microbrew or a huckleberry margarita.
