In these parts, the Seasons Restaurant at Double Arrow Resort (406/677-2777, $18–28), two miles south of Seeley Lake, is the best place to eat. The menu specializes in continental cuisine, featuring dishes such as a bacon-wrapped filet mignon of buffalo topped with chipotle butter or duck glazed with cherries and soy sauce. It’s a pleasure to eat here, and not just because the food is good; the dining room, overlooking the Seeley Valley, is beautiful and the service top-notch.
For a good hand-cut steak, delicious potatoes, and authentic Montana atmosphere, go to Lindey’s Prime Steak House (406/677-9229, $16–28), located on the lake in the town site.
