Tables very close to each other, so other diners conversations can be heard, after all who wants to know what others have done in the day. The restaurant was busy and we had about 30 minutes wait, the amusing thing is we went early and asked if we could make a reservation for later that night, no, was the response... More

Just had drinks and apps, but the menu looked great! Very good beer selection, served cold! We sat at the bar, but the service was spot on! A local who sat next to us said it was "the best place in town for a beer." Recommended.

Be patient, this place is busy especially at dinner time. This is not a cheap burger joint. You'll pay a bit more but be glad you did. Good variety on the menu too. Worth a visit.

Inventive well prepared food. Probably expensive for Kalispell, but we ate there twice because of the quality.

We went to the restaurant based on trip advisor reviews. It is a great place to go! We went about 9PM, so they had the lights dim in there and it was rather loud. I think it might have been a larger group that made it so loud cause when they left it quietened down, but it was still loud... More

We picked this restaurant based on reviews and were even more delighted to find it was across the street from our hotel. We went at about 5:30 and were seated immediately, but within a few moments we saw a waitlist forming. The greeting and service were excellent. The food was outstanding. It's really just an upscale burger joint with a... More

Although it seems to be the best place for burgers in town, different tastes. even vegetarian, could find much more on the menu. There is a great choice for everyone, and we enjoyed very original tomato and basil bisque (creamy and spicy) , delicious shrimp and crab cake, and Deluxe burger. The restaurant was crowded, but the service was attentive... More

Enjoyable place to eat right down town Kalispell. All four of us ordered four different burgers and four different beers and we all thought ours was the best! Very upbeat wait staff and knowledgable also.

Traveled across the country for our summer vacation. Read the reviews for this place and couldn't wait. Got there around 8pm on a Friday night. My husband and I were told the wait would be about 20 minutes. That was completely fine. The restaurant was packed. Around 30 minutes into the wait we went to check the status as we... More

Read the reviews and went early, so no waits. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. My husband loved the choice of micro brewery beers. Our salad & burgers were delicious and homemade chips a nice touch. My favourite kind of eatery......well done!
