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.

Very good food and excellent view

We had a really nice dinner at this restaurant. Hamburgers, salads, Caesar wrap and a tri tip French tip. A brewery with several varieties of beer provided many choices for us.

We had a really nice dinner at this restaurant. Hamburgers, salads, Caesar wrap and a tri tip French tip. A brewery with several varieties of beer provided many choices for us. The view is gorgeous and our waitress was efficient and friendly. I noticed several families with children including my nephew.

The brewery is nice but primarily because of the view. There is a horrible smell that comes through once in awhile but it sounds like it's waste from beer they are making and they are working on fixing it. I had the summers itch beer which was really good if you like Blue Moon. I had a bloody Ceasar that... More

On our road trip to Glacier N.P. and detoured through Big Fork to find a dinner spot. This place was an excellent find. Amazing setting overlooking the Flathead Lake. The menu and food were terrific. We would have given this 5 stars but our server was a little "rushed". We had our cell phone ready for a family birthday pic... More

DH and I were traveling up the east side of Flathead Lake just checking things out on vacay. As we approached a stoplight in Bigfork we looked to the left and saw Flathead Lake Brewing. HHmm, we're always up for a brewery, let's stop. It wasn't quite 4:00 yet so they weren't open but there were already a few different... More

I went there recently with friends because we were hungry and most of the other restaurants had closed for the evening or were about to close. We waited at least 25 minutes for a table. The menu is limited and if you have children, there isn't much on the menu for them. Most brewery places I've been to have "pub... More

We spotted this brewing company as a new place so we wanted to try it out. The service was very good and the food was excellent. Be sure to try this place.

It was very busy on a Saturday night. They told us it would be a 30 minute wait and we could wait in the Tap room or the full bar. We only had to wait 10 minutes. We requested a seat on the deck. There was a beautiful view of the lake thru the trees. The food and service were... More

I feel like this restaurant opened before it was ready and is still struggling to find it's stride. We arrived and there were full, unfinished parking lots. I had to squeeze in on the side of the parking lot in the rear of the restaurant to even find parking. I then had no route to the front of the restaurant... More

Sarah P, Manager at Flathead Lake Brewing Company, responded to this review

We are very sorry to hear you and our party did not have the best time at the FLBC Pubhouse. The parking lots remain unpaved because we are still developing a plan for the basement level. One of the possible options is more brewing space, and if that happens we would have to dig up the front parking lot in... More

We visited the flathead lake brewery two times on our recent visit to Montana. We found the beer to be rather good. They had several we tried and liked. The brewery itself if over looking the Flathead lake and they have a small covered patio area where you can sit outside an enjoy the weather and the views of the... More

Description

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.
