We enjoyed dinner here several nights while we were in Kalispell. The brisket and chicken were both delicious, and the craft brew selection was excellent. They even had some winter brews for a seasonal selection. Service was very good, both for dining in and take-out. We did both. Typical wait time for take-out was 20 minutes, so we called in... More

Great restaurant for our group of friends and family. Food was amazing and the platter gives a great spread of various tastes.

The best thing about a restaurant should NOT be its decor. It is still lodge-like and inviting but the service and food were very poor the day we went. The waitress was very uninspired, just putting in time for a paycheck I'd say. Other tables were waiting around for their checks and beginning to roll their eyes. All of our... More

The St. Louis spare ribs were delicious! Also had the baked beans and garlic mashed potatoes. So delicious! Good southern food in Montana!

Nothing really to get excited about. It's just ok...but the real disappointment for me is the Mac and Cheese. Who puts jalapenos in Mac & Cheese?! Don't get me wrong, I like spicy food...but not when it's supposed to be comfort food such as Mac & Cheese. The BBQ is just ok...nothing to write home about. They have so much... More

This was our second visit to this location, and I wasn't as impressed as the first time we dined here. The main reason was due to the fact the the staff seemed like they weren't interested in working, and were just going through the motions. The food as okay, but the quality didn't seem to be up to the same... More

I would not say it's the best dinning experience I have ever had but it was good. Food was tasty and plentiful, staff was efficient and it was nice and warm In there on a cold day. Great tvs for watching football. I would go again.

Awesome place to eat and spend a good time with friends. Love the style with all the outdoor gear, signs, antlers, and log walls!! Wilbur (mascot) definitely made my day when we visited- love that picture! Would recommend for anyone who has time to wait a little for the food, but have an awesome experience overall!

Even though the parking lot and restaurant was busy we where seated right away. Got our drinks right away and food came quickly after that. We had the 1/2 BBQ chicken it was really good. Good place to go and eat and unwind.

great to have a second chance to eat at this restaurant, the first being in Mesa. Just had to have the ribs again,meat fell off the bones. They had my favourite draft on tap not many restaurants due. Our server was attentive and suggested trying the bourbon pudding, good choice highly recommend this one well worth the price. .,
