Back door is a delightfully friendly little quilt shop. It is right in the center of Whitefish and has the most wonderful batik fabrics.

Good food. They used to be a little better though. I'm not a very big fan of their BBQ sauce, though. I love the fry bread

In the great hunt for the best fry bread we were sent to the Back Door. Open 7 days a week and packed all seasons they have the best Ribs I have eaten in the whole valley. With a variety of ways they prepare them, the St. Louis style melt in your mouth. Portions are wonderful. Best kept not so... More

We ate here in July after hearing rave reviews from friends and family. Service was pretty slow, but the food was what I felt was average, Not quite what I was expecting after all the hoopla, but "ok". The fry bread was out favorite part, but the ribs were nothing to write home about. We need to try it again... More

This is one of the restaurant we always try to stop at when we are in the Whitefish area. It is a favorite with the locals and always seems to be busy. It is not fancy but has good food, large servings and fair prices. As other reviewers have mentioned the fry bread with honey is always everyone's favorite. But... More

We consider ourselves good judges of BBQ and loved Back Door. Food was great, friendly service and priced well.

This place was full so we did have to wait quite a while to get our food, but when we got it it was really good. I'd never heard of "fry bread" & wondered what it was, & what it was, was delicious! The portions were very generous & we left stuffed! The waitress was very friendly as was the... More

Service is what is average...never really great. The ribs were good and the portions fine. The best part is the fry bread and the honey butter served with it! The baked beans and slaw come in little plastic cups as the sides to many of the dishes. It has a good family atmosphere and pride themselves on their margaritas for... More

If you like broasted chicken or any kind of ribs at bargain prices go here. Arrive early there is usually a long line on weekends in the early evenings. I always order the half chicken half rib dinner. Their fry bread is killer too. Don't eat too much or you won't be able to eat your dinnner like my daughter... More
