This is one of the better restaurants, if not the best, in Kalispell. Great food, nice atmosphere. It seems that most of the restaurants in town are burger and pizza joints. A little on the high side, but well worth it if you want a nice dinner. They also have outside seating as well.

The elk burger was perfect. I don't normally eat game food, but elk is an exception and it was served to perfection. The others in our party had more normal food, and everyone was satisfied.

My Wife & I had dinner at North Bay and I suspect it's one of the most upscale restaurants in Kalispell. We each had a seafood dish - the almond crusted sole and the seared scallops. Both dishes were excellent and the service was very good except the server never was around to refill our wine glasses from the bottle... More

We went to this restaurant because they advertise great happy hour. What a surprise.... their food is great. I ordered their Pan Seared Scallops and wow, it was some of the best Scallops I've had !! large, tender, perfectly cooked, and wonderful cream sauce.... I savored every bite. These scallops sit atop garlic mashed potatoes and surrounded by perfectly cooked... More

I took my daughter to dinner after a soccer match at her favorite Kalispell restaurant. Brad, a superb waiter, recommended a new item--the braised pork belly. It was not only sumptuous but more than ample for one dinner. It served as lunch for the next day. We dined outdoors, by choice, in patio dining. Sean, the manager, made sure of... More

A nice bar atmosphere but like much of Montana the beer is over priced. The bartenders have a few friends they share conversation with but for sure it is not a "Friends Bar" atmosphere. Food is average and there is always a feeling of this is not a friendly place.

This used to be a first choice for us but now it is a last resort. The prices have climbed so high while the quality has been on a steady decline. We don't mind paying good money for a great meal but what you get here is not even close to being worth the price you will pay. There seems... More

North Bay Grille was recommended to us by the front desk agent at Kalispell hotel. I guess they recommend it as it's the closest establishment, being just around the corner. We entered through the glass doors and no one looked up from their posts, despite there being several servers all talking in a group off to the left and two... More

I went there on a Saturday for dinner and wished I had gone to Taco Bell instead. My wife ordered beef sliders which was two dinky burger and a bundle of fries.
