Saloon and Smokehouse

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 opens at 7am and 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 until 10pm 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.

Oso’s Smokehouse serves dinner seven days a week from 6pm-10pm.  Join us for Happy Hour in the Saloon and get 20% off your pre-dinner drinks from 5pm-6pm, then choose from a full menu of smoked chicken, baby back ribs, pastas and salads.  Young travelers enjoy their own menu and watch out for Specials!  Friday nights are Prime Rib nights and every night guarantees great food and outstanding hospitality from Chef Erico and his team.
