A bar is a bar, a taproom is home. There's something about walking into a small, cozy place after a long hard day on the job (or the trail, lake or river), pulling up a stool and ordering your favorite local brew. Woods Bay is an intimate community, and our original taproom there fits in perfectly. It's a small space with a big view. It's nautically themed, with a large deck perfect for live music on sunny Sunday afternoons in the summer. If you visit us here more than once there's a very good chance you'll see more than one familiar face. Our taproom offers the perfect place to enjoy all of our craft brews. So come visit us, sit down, enjoy a beer and maybe even chat with our brewers and take a growler and some bottles to go.

Not extensive menu, but very good and beer was great

We ate/drink here twice while in the Glacier area. Beer was outstanding and nice variety. Enjoyed the food, but the menu was pretty limited, frankly.

This was our 2nd time trying Flathead lake brewing co and 2nd time our food was mediocre. The atmosphere is fantastic; the view incredible; service great! But if you're looking for a memorable meal, try another brewing house. I had the chicken Caesar wrap. Pretty hard to mess up on. My wrap was 95% salad and 5% chicken that was... More

We visited here on Sunday at noon, there was one table seated at the time we arrived. The hostess asked if we wanted to sit outside or in. When we checked outside it might have been a little nippy, she informed us that if we stayed outside we were not allowed to move inside if we changed our minds (what?!).... More

We loved the atmosphere and the food. The waitress was very accommodating as I have gluten issues. We sat outside and enjoyed the food and atmosphere.

The last time we visited Bigfork, the Flathead Lake Brewing Company hadn't opened yet. Lucky for us, it is now and it's a great addition to the beautiful Flathead Lake area. We stopped in for a "look and a drink," earlier this month. Took a seat in the "small bar" which is just off to the right, as you enter... More

We had dinner tonight sitting on the patio looking at the lake. Was a perfect view! Our kids loved their pub food which is a bonus. I had the tacos which were great and my husband had the tri tip. The best deal was the to go 6 pack of cold beer for $8.

An old bowling alley has been nicely repurposed into a micro brewery/restaurant. A clean and contemporary décor with a large bar area featuring full service and not just beer. Excellent food offerings on the menu, professionally served and prompt too. Lots of positive energy inside with strangers having friendly conversations while enjoying the "vibe". Keep it up owners, this is... More

One of the many crafted brew pubs in MT, but this one has the view along with an interesting menu to include tri tip options not found in this part of the country. Tri tip is a CA cut of meat cooked in a special way to provide steaks, roasts that are meant to be served as a dinner or... More

Original location south of new place was a scary experience. Bartender was beyond overwhelmed with only four people at bar. Took her 10 minutes to find a pen and paper to take our order (after she did some dishes and ignored us while talking to her crying son at the bar ???), then she did start taking our order, STOPPED...
