Excellent food, make Reservations

We went without a reservation. We were lucky we wanted to eat outside on the patio so it worked fine. My husband loved the elk and I had Halibut. Both were very good.

Sadly the management appear unable to deal with an occasional bad bottle of wine due to sediment in neck.

We had a wonderful meal here during our visit to Bigfork. I had elk stroganoff (that was a new one for me) and my wife had trout. Both dishes were excellent. It is fine dining, although you can come dressed casually. They were pretty fully booked the night we were here due to being next to the theater, but most... More

My wife and I dined at Showthyme prior to taking in a show at the playhouse. We enjoy dinner and a show and were looking forward to a nice evening. The restaurant has great decor and provides a nice ambiance for eating. We were seated by the hostess and asked to be moved away from the center of the restaurant.... More

The food here was lovely. Really good. They have a great chef. Unfortunately though, the service left a lot to be desired. When we arrived, admittedly slightly early for our 7.30pm reservation, we were made to feel an inconvenience. The manager even very precisely stated that we were 6 minutes early as if to highlight our perceived error - and... More

We've been coming to Showthyme for years and always look forward to our visits. The best fish dish I've ever had is a special that's not on the menu and is always sold out quickly: the tooth fish with jasmine rice. AMAZING. I'm debating whether I even let more read about it! Love their ribs (served in the vault only)... More

My husband took me to Showthyme for my birthday a few weeks ago and we had the best Alaskan King Salmon I've EVER tasted. Chef Blu cooked it between two cedar planks and it was done to perfection, melt in your mouth ! Koodos to Blu who is apparently trying to slow down in his retirement years but his fans... More

I have to start by saying that we had very pleasant and responsive service from our waitress. I didn't catch her name, but she was wonderful. I ordered one of the specials for the evening, the elk steak, and it was terrific. Funny thing is they did not ask me how I wanted it cooked so I assumed it had... More

We ended our day with an evening meal at Showthyme. The clams were prepared well and quite good. My wife and I shared a poblano chicken dish with fresh vegetables and cornbread, also very good. It was a nice meal and the atmosphere of the old building added to the experience. Glad we found Showthyme.

The restaurant just opened after a remodel a couple days ago. It is as always the best restaurant in the valley. Great service and outstanding food. Showthyme is consistently ranked as number one in the valley for good reason. Always the place I take my special guests who are visiting me at Flathead Lake.
