I stayed at Meadow Lake, and I ate twice at the restaurant. I was more than pleasantly surprised by the quality and taste of the food. I had the coconut shrimp and the crab cakes. Both were delicious! We sat outside, watched the ducks, geese, and birds, and had a wonderful time! The weather was excellent.

Good calamari, which we love. Also delicious ribs. Accomodated group of 7 with two kids well. Wish the kids menu had more variety and veggies.

Always eat here when we are in Columbia Falls. Food is delicious, great value for money. Staff are what really makes it a great spot. Super friendly and fun. Will continue to come back.

Meadowlake Bar and Grille is a nice place in a beautiful setting to meet friends and enjoy casual American fare. I made reservations through Open table - they did not have a record of the reservation and said they do not receive notification from OpenTable when reservations are made thus a table was not reserved. If you make reservations online I would definitely call to make sure they received them. It can be a very busy and loud place so if a quiet conversation is on your agenda look elsewhere. If it is nice definitely ask to be seated on the patio by the pond and fireplace. Much better for quiet conversation outside - but you can only do that a few months of the year.

Made Open Table reservation in advance. Arrived, checked in & after long day of travel headed for dinner. No record of our reservation! We were seated shortly after but food was mediocre at best. Companion had wedge salad with petite sirloin that was as tough as rawhide. Not our first meal here but may be our last.

Sat on patio, just lovely. It did start to rain but the team seemed ready with an action plan to move customers inside. Thank You for such a great Gluten Free menu, great variety and options. Prime Rib, while pricey was worth it. All food was tasty and service was excellent. A nice way to wrap up our incredible holiday at Meadow Lake Resort.

This place is pretty bad. We went tonight and the service was grumpy and took a long time, the food was not very good (I could have made much better at home) the wine was corked (she brought me a new one) and it was just overall one of those experiences where we looked at each other and said...ah, this is why this place had availability. We definitely won’t be back.

Very good food - get those servers to smile !
The wine glasses were generously filled. 😊 For having a reservation the table wasn’t the best- it’s a casual friendly atmosphere - so ambience wasn’t an issue- fun and great bartender and very attentive and ambitious Hostess

We arrived for an 8PM reservation after an 800 mile drive expecting a great time. We ordered prime rib only to have the server come back and tell us they were out. We ordered a side salad, fish and chips and a dinner salad, with chicken. FIFTY minutes later it showed up! Then my side salad appeared 5 minutes later even though I asked for it before the meal. My wife's pear gorgonzola salad was minus the chicken too but they billed us for it! I believe the kitchen and head server were focused on the engagement party event moreso than all other customers. Server did what he could I believe but a disappointing meal.

We sat outside and the view was very nice. The food was okay but not great. I ordered the fish tacos and there was just one little sliver of fish in each taco which was disappointing. My husband ordered the halibut which he said was good but it was served on a bed of plain white rice with no vegetables or anything on the side, again....disappointing and boring. The service was very spotty, we were ignored for quite a while before our waitress came to our table. She was very nice once she got there, but we had to wait awhile and we were hungry. It was very nice to sit outside on the golf course but I wish the food had been better.

The chicken wings were outstanding: crispy, tasty, no grease, moist meat. The huckleberry ribs were quite nice & very generous if a tad salty. The bison gnocchi: essentially a tasty bison chili served over uninspired, too chewy petite dumplings. Overall, quite satisfying and fun to share.

We went to this restaurant expecting a good, if not gourmet meal. While the view is lovely, it does not make up for bad food.

We ordered shrimp cocktail and wings for appetizers and the featured huckleberry ribs with the sauce on the side. We also ordered the salmon, which our pleasant young server assured us was excellent.

When the server brought our wine, a nice Duckhorn Merlot, she opened the bottle—and just left it on the table. No tasting, no pouring, just plunked down like a beer.

Our appetizers arrived, which were decent. Mid-bite into our 3rd wing and shrimp, our salads and entrees arrived and were plunked on the table.

The salmon was dry and inedible. The famed ribs came with the sauce on them and were ice cold, as in pulled from the refrigerator cold.

We returned our entrees and told the embarrassed and apologetic server to take it off our bill—which she did with many apologies. As we waited for her to ring up our check, we heard another server telling the next table about specials—none of which were offered to us.

Until this restaurant can rise above the level of Caddy Shack for training its servers and chefs, I recommend you get on your golf cart and ride away from the Meadow Lake Bar and Grille.

We began by ordering beers. My wife’s Stella did not have the usual carbonation. It had a weak, soapy looking head and tasted flat. We are from Wisconsin and know our beer! The bartender apparently thought it was just fine as we had to ask to have it taken off the bill even though it was sent back!
The food was OK but nothing outstanding. My buffalo burger was in two pieces for some reason.
We were in the area as tourists but we would never return if we were local.

Great fun for NYE dinner with friends. Staff all super friendly and all just wanting to make sure everyone had a great time. Food was really nice, good pub grill food. Nothing fancy but super tasty and hit the spot for a relaxed and casual night out after skiing. The hit of the night was the amazing salted caramel cocktail by the super fun bartender Clay (I hope I got his name right, sorry if I didn’t) which looked nice enough but blew our minds when we tasted it. Possibly one of the best cocktails I’ve ever had. Can’t wait to go back again on our next visit to the amazing Montana!

We were staying at Meadow Lake Resort and this was a close option so we decided on it. Prices were not too outrageous, the food was okay, but the service wasn't anything spectacular.

We actually didn't realize this was part of a country club until we got there. They offered us inside or outside seating and since it was very warm, we stayed inside. She was relieved since there was a 50th reunion outside and didn't think we would like that. I agreed. Anyway, I had looked at the menu online, which is why I chose it and we were not disappointed. Good food and all of us had dessert, which was also good. I'd definitely go here again.

It was a very nice meal. They did not have the knowledge about open table. Confused about reservation and the waiter did not know the restaurant was even on open table.
