We stopped here for lunch on a ride down the Lolo Pass. Nice little place with a diner feel. Good basic fare. Friendly service.

Being from Texas, we had never had the pleasure of eating huckleberries. While on a float trip on the river, another guest told us that they had received a recommendation to go to Ryan's Wilderness Inn during their trip. That afternoon, we ventured out and we were not disappointed. The whole family loved their shakes and the staff was very... More

I'd better explain the dog part. She was travelling in a cute red Miata (see photo) and I'm not sure if her owner gave her a hotcake or not. We had breakfasts here. I had the usual eggs, toast, spuds, bacon, and coffee. My wife had oatmeal, fruit, and hot chocolate. In addition, I stopped by later in the morning... More

Stopped in for lunch with our group of 18 bikers, and was pleasantly surprised. Food was good, as well as the service. Very unique décor. If you choose the "breaded pork loin sandwich", you better have an appetite!

Had lunch and breakfast here. Very happy with both meals. The service is good and the people are friendly. Good honest food with no frills. Nice atmosphere. I met a group of bikers who always make a stop there for breakfast or lunch

The motel part was fine, your average room. And from all the reviews I had read prior to going, I was stoked about the steak. DO NOT ORDER THE RIBEYE CHOICE DINNER FOR 22 DOLLARS. I am a steak eater, my dad is a butcher and I work at a steakhouse. I ordered my steak medium rare.. It was disgusting.... More

I clicked average, but average is such a belittling word, and this was a bit better than that. After hours on the scenic wonder that is route 12 in a 60 year old car, hauling it round onslaughts of bends, we needed a coffee a bite to eat, and Ryan's is the first place you come to heading west, after...
