Of the 3 places we ate dinner on our recent MLK weekend trip to Whitefish, this was the best. We decided to eat one night in Kalispell rather than Whitefish, and our choice of Hops Downtown Grill turned out to be a gem. Don't get me wrong, Whitefish has some wonderful restaurants. However, Whitefish is a busy resort town and... More

Good idea to get there at 5pm when they open. Small space, fills quickly, gets noisy. (best table to dine and have conversation is in the bar area....only "1" table) We've been dining here for years, and have had everything on the menu.....never disappointed.....ever. Great specials!

The beer selection is Amazing, yes, BUT the food is the real reason to come. I usually prefer steak or seafood but I will take a hops burger ANY day! I highly recommend the teriyaki burger. There is one 1 thing I will never eat there again and that is their big huge fries. We have had them 2 times... More

Looking for a warm meal on a cold night, we decided to try Hop's. The clerk at out inn was pleased whe he heard our choice, appreciating that we were patronizing a "local, chef-run" business. Hop's isn't hard to find on Main Street, though from the outside it doesn't look like much. Inside, though, both the atmosphere and the staff... More

Very popular burger bar located on Main Street. Expect it to be rockin' and possibly wait for a seat if arriving during popular times. Pleasant atmosphere but closely packed tables....so don't expect quiet conversations. Excellent burgers with a wide array of beers, some on tap. Service is cheerful and even a bit fun.

I have now been there three times and have yet to have a meal there. The wait has never been under 1/2 hour and as long as "we won't be able to serve you tonight". I guess that means it's good, but at least let me make a reservation so I can try it. Too many other very good restaurants... More

An excellent choice for a reasonably priced meal, great service, and atmosphere. You can't go wrong with the burgers and homemade fries but the other items on the menu are just as good. The atmosphere and service was great!

Best hamburgers and fries you could ask for but also fancy. They offer other meal options too. Service is great. They also have gluten free options which is really nice. Get there early they fill up fast each evening. We typically sit at the bar though.

Burgers are incredible, but last night I had the Mediterranean Chicken with Risotto. It was fabulous! Chicken was juicy and tender and the risotto was creamy. You must get there just as they open because they fill up fast...but worth the wait!
