Great spot to stop and enjoy a beer or some food. Could use a better amber. Lots of IPA if you enjoy that. Definitely better than average.

We stopped in as part of our motorcycle tour of western Montana. This place rocks! Great staff and the best nachos we have had all week. We had Nachos with Emu and they were incredible. We had iced tea and I finished off the stop with a half pint of Wild Mile Wheat beer which was awesome as well. I... More

Great food and atmosphere. They were kind enough to let us sit at the bar with our girls (11 and 5), fun to watch and listen to the locals come in and out. Overall a neat place to eat.

My husband and I were on our way from Glacier to Missoula. We expected to find some nice restaurants in Bigfork but after combing the small town and reading numerous menus, most foods were beefy and/or fried....not what we wanted. We drove on down the road and took a chance on Flathead Lake Brewing Company...my husband's attitude was that if... More

Ate at the Flathead brewery based on some local recommendations. The food was okay but it took almost 40 minutes to get it and we ordered a chicken sandwich, pulled pork and burger. Husband had the Amber ale and wasn't too impressed. The waitress checked on us frequently though and was friendly.

Stopped on Mother's Day for a sample of their brews and a snack. The fries with Ale Cheese were awesome and the Two Rivers beer was very tasty! Good service too!

e are beer snobs, and we beieve that Flathead Lake Brewery has some of the best beers in Montana. However, don't let the outward appearance, the very small size of the place, and the fact that some local always seems to be expounding extremely loudly at its small bar dissuade you from tryin its food. The food here, in our... More

We were here on a cold Saturday afternoon, just two seats left at the bar. Bartender was friendly and attentive, got conversations going with lots of the patrons. Mix of locals and tourists, the kind that like great beer! Flathead has some superior brews - we are partial to IPAs and Flathead does some of the best. The crowd continued... More

Small brew pub with an interesting menu & some good fresh food options. Outdoor deck would be nice on fine weather days.
