We are contemplating a trip on Amtrak's Empire Builder. We can probably get by with dining car food, but I do a little research and I find that there are restaurants very near the stations in Minot, ND, Havre, MT, and Whitefish, MT, where the train stops at times that are convenient for breakfast, lunch or dinner (depending on which way we're going). Is this do-able? Can I walk to, say, Tupelo Grille in Whitefish and get dinner to go and still make it back to the train? Can I call ahead and have them deliver to the station? Anybody have any experience with this? Thanks for any info anyone can provide.
