we all had baby back ribs. My mother inlaws without sauce, as per her request. Baked beans were pheominal, as was the corn. Coleslaw okay too. Wifes ribs were tasty while mine were not juicy and fatt as advertised by our waiter. While tasty, I found the ribs to be very dry and over cooked. Mind you 2out of 3... More

The deluxe dinner comes served on a garbage can lid but it's a bbq masterpiece. The brisket, ribs and chicken are all smoked and delicious. The beans are spectacular and the coleslaw crunchy and fresh. The cornbread muffins are fantastic. Never got to the potato wedges cuz there was just better stuff to eat. Only criticism is the corn on... More

This is one of our favorite stops in Kalispell. You can't hardly find better food than this, and the service and setting are very enjoyable too.

The three of us were in the mood for BBQ and thought this would do the trick. We were right. We all ordered the pulled pork and were beyond satisfied. I ordered mine with fruit and potato salad, they were both very good. On the table are a variety of sauces designed to cater to individual taste. I opted for... More

First stop in Kalispell as recommended by friends. Let's start with service. Friendly, helpful and not phased by dietary restrictions. The service alone is enough to recommend the lounge. I had the catfish fingers (soy friendly), great flavours and would recommend sticking with the lunch portions as they are plentiful. Rest of table would recommend the rib tipsy do brisket.... More

This restaurant has a wonderful location that made it easy for us to get in and out of. The restaurant was very clean and the service was great. Our food was amazing and we were in and out quiet quickly.
