The dining room at Holland Lake Lodge is open to the public, and it’s well worth a visit. During the summer, when a professional chef is in residence, the dinners ($14–30) are particularly inspired and feature both steaks and more continental fare like roast duck. But even the simpler lunch menu and winter fare have some treats; the “Gut Bomb” is a locally renowned burger.
The Swan Valley Cafe (6799 Hwy. 83, 406/754-3663, 7 a.m.–3 p.m. Mon.–Wed., 7 a.m.–8 p.m. Thurs.–Fri., 8 a.m.–8 p.m. Sat., 8 a.m.–3 p.m. Sun., $5–22), just north of milepost 42, is a reliable place that offers vegetarian meals along with the burgers and steaks.
