    The gorgeous venue sits between East and West Glacier and makes visiting the beautiful Glacier National Park so easy. The staff was friendly, flexible, and the food was amazing. It is the best price for the location and the historic Inn is quaint. My biggest complaint was working with Holly, the event coordinator. She didn't respond to emails in a timely manner and didn't even show up the day of our wedding. She made the process the most stressful. However, I do highly recommend the venue because everyone else from the chef and bartender to the rest of the staff were so amazing to work with. The staff took care of moving chairs, serving, and taking down decorations. The food was absolutely amazing. We had prime rib and seabass. You won't get a better deal anywhere else in the gorgeous location.

    The event coordinator, Holly, was very helpful in answering all of our detailed questions prior to the event. We are very thankful to her, although there is certainly room for improvement in the actual event logistics (we'll get to that in a minute).

    The venue is reasonably priced. Our wedding budget was less than $5000 and we spent around $3500 at I.W. which included the venue, tables, chairs, linens, bartender, food, champagne, AND one night in a caboose. The food is delicious and if there isn't something you want on the menu option list, the chef (Corey) is willing to work with you to accommodate needs. We had a taco bar/buffet style and I heard absolutely zero complaints on the food front. A buffet taco bar may sound too laid-back for the cost, but I guarantee it was spruced up. There is real silverware and champagne flutes, so no skimping on the display either.

    Our only complaints were with the lack of communication between staff members. The pavilion gets chilly in Oct. (only 3 sides which was miscommunicated to be 4 until the week prior) and none of the heat lamps were turned on prior to ceremony (like we discussed day before). Not a huge deal since we were prepared, but...Also, the bartender that we paid for was only present about 1/2 the time (first bartender wasn't charging people for drinks at the cash bar, so charging them to us!) So, the greatest room for improvement was the communication (or lack thereof) between the staff, which would have made everything run a bit more smoothly. We realized the staff was bare bones due to the shoulder season, but we still paid full price...so we expected the same quality service. That piece was disappointing, but certainly did not ruin our day! Honestly, nothing could have. And all staff was friendly, however disorganized.

    Overall, we had a wonderful experience at Izaak Walton, despite the hiccups. Also, we highly recommend staying in the X215 caboose which was our favorite.
