About Tailing Loop Winery

Upon founding the Tailing Loop Winery, we had a clear goal: to emphasize both the astounding natural beauty of Montana along with its rich history by preserving and building upon the honorable traditions of the Mountain West. We had a vision of what our establishment would look like, and when we located the Glacier Gallery property in the scenic Flathead Valley, we felt that it was the perfect embodiment of that core concept. The grit of the structure’s long history is a testament the devotion of the previous owner, Dr. Van Kirke Nelson, MD and his family. It was that essence that appealed to us on a deeper level. In continuation of the artistic tradition of the space, the work of a variety of talented Montana artists will be displayed upon the walls of the tasting room, featuring those landscapes and images that emphasize the splendor of the Montana West.

So, recommendations….anything on the menu you will enjoy. Whether you decide on the Teddy Bear Pancakes decorated just as expected or maybe the Cowboy Steaks & Eggs is more your style, everything is absolutely wonderful. Gluten Free Waffles, Eggs Benedict, Biscuits & Gravy, or even something as scrumptious as a Fresh Cinnamon or Caramel Roll….. These are just few more items to consider on their very extensive menu. Price is always a consideration but at Sykes the price is just right, especially the $0.10 coffee during the Early Bird Special from 7am until 9am. The biggest problem most guests find is not the selection, taste or price, but simply what to choose. The solution is simple, come regularly and often until you have tried everything. This is the only way you can really be sure you have experienced the best of Sykes Breakfast.
