Food and Drink

The Historic Tamarack Lodge has always had a welcome at the ready for passers by and visitors to our area. From its origins as a visitor center to Glacier National Park, through its many years as an inn, it has offered hospitality to everyone and continues to do so.

We are happy to continue the tradition and ensure we keep the homefires burning for our guests throughout the year. 

Our Espresso Bar  offers guests and passers-by a chance to relax in the lodge Great Room with a Montana Coffee Traders specialty coffee.  Add a warm cinnamon roll, cookie or muffin to start your day whilst you plan your next outing using our selection of maps and guidebooks, or simply relax and enjoy the ambience of mountain living.

In our gift shop area we have a selection of healthy Go Foods for hikers.  Take a taste of Montana home with you with a range of Made in Montana goodies such as Huckleberry Haven Wild Huckleberry Jam  or treat yourself from our freezer fully-stocked with yummy ice-cream.

The Saloon at the The Tamarack is now open every day serving beer, wine and spirits and a selection of bar snacks.  Enjoy pizza, egg rolls or hotwings with a locally brewed beer or pale ale or wake up your morning with a Bloody Mary.  Enjoy a chilled bottle of wine in your cabin or grab a six-pack for refreshment on the trail.

Join us in welcoming the Backwoods Bistro to the Tamarack!!  Serving dinner Weds – Sat and Saturday brunch until April we are offering an outstanding  50% off all lodging for guests dining with the Bistro.  Enjoy a yummy Friday night dinner followed by a half-price night at the lodge, then set yourself up for a day’s adventure with Heather’s cooked-from-scratch pastries.  Dinner will be waiting for you after your day’s exploring, and with 50% off lodging, you can afford to spend a second night in our 100 year old lodge before heading back to the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
