Showthyme is one of Bigfork's, best restaurants. Located in the heart of Bigfork Village, the food, service, atmosphere and menu, make eating there a great choice. A historic building, there are several different areas to eat in, or you can dine outdoors. The service is what restaurants used to be about. Friendly, genuine servers, that have excellent menu knowledge and... More

Had an amazing dinner- Showthyme never lets me down! Haven't been here in a while but I've always said it's steadily remains to be one of the best restaurants in the Flathead Valley for the 25 years I've lived here. I had stuffed Hatch Chiles with corn pudding which were fabulous- a little spicy and very flavorful. Beatific presentation and... More

We came in here on a Saturday night with no reservations, yet they still found us great seating. The waitress was very helpful in helping us order as there were so many great choices. Service was quick. All and all a great experience with great food.

We've been coming here for 20 years and the food is always excellent. At our last visit, everyone had a great meal from meat to fish dishes. Service is attentive and fun.

Showthyme Restaurant is truly a fine dining experience! The setting is cozy, situated in an old bank building of brick and wood. It is next door to the Bigfork Playhouse so it is a perfect dining spot in the summer before a play. It is owned and operates by Blu and wife Rose. Blu is also the head chef. The... More

Order the toothfish--it is simply divine! They used to have a "death by chocolate" on the menu. It wasn't there when I last visited, but if they bring it back......order it!

This is our go to place for special occasions. Have never had a bad meal there. If you eat the Vault you can chose from either the upstairs or downstairs menu. Upstairs you are limited to their menu. Blu, the owner and chef, puts together the most wonderful and interesting dishes. Don't be afraid to try something new. Always great... More

This place came highly recommended and I can see why. Wonderful setting in an old bank building. An excellent menu with some creative choices for starters, entrees and desserts. The wine selection is adequate and we found a flavorful zinfandel in the $35 range. The pesto dipping oil for the bread was very nice to start the meal. Both the... More

Showthyme is consistently the best restaurant in the Flathead Valley and is open year-round. I recommend a reservation so that you can eat upstairs; however, the food is always excellent irrespective of where you are seated.
