Took a drive out here after golfing Eagle Bend (highly recommend) - and it was pretty good. I had rack of lamb with mashed potatoes and asparagus - friends had burger, ribs, and pulled pork sandwich. Rack was average at best - but testing table-fellows' fare, actually pretty good, esp. the bbq ribs - verdict - a little slow on... More

I went to this brewery with a group of 12 or so and we had a wonderful time. The atmosphere and service was fun and light hearted. The appetizers came out quickly, but had to wait 45 minutes for the entrees. It was a large group and a busy Friday night so I understand a bit longer wait. I had... More

We enjoyed a delicious dinner here out on their patio. They had a very nice wine and beer menu to choose from. Their food was excellent. Several of us had the brie cheese salad which was outstanding. The fish and chips were also very good with a light tempura batter. We will come back again!!

Ended up here by accident while looking for another place. Glad we stopped - food was excellent & beer was fantastic. Service was attentive & prices were Normal for a brew pub. Had the half rack of ribs - mmmmm good!

After a not so successful trip to flathead lake we wound up at the tamarack brewery for a cold one and the 'bites' which were like a pepperoni pizza calzone style. Delicious and filling. The root beer was tasty too and the service was also quite friendly. A nice stop

Just had another great meal with outstanding service. We were told theat 2 of the lunch specials were sold out so I ordered the 3rd. Our server returned momentarily and let me know that special was sold out as well. I ordered something else. Our server returned saying the kitchen was ok with the special after all. Right after that... More

The best fish tacos we have ever eaten. All of the entrees we ordered we're delicious and huge portions. Place was busy and I can see why. The beer sampler was also great as you could try every beer available. Service was great and everyone was friendly. We wish they had this restaurant in the Bay Area as we can't... More

The place was fully packed when we arrived. Nice interior, but loud. This is not a place for a romantic dinner. Waiter was very friendly. Food was excellent. Had the fish taco which was great. But way too large. The portions are enough for 2 persons !

I was not expecting to get such a large portion of very tasty food at Tamarack Brewing Company. I got the blue cheese and brie burger and it was very good. I asked for it to be cooked well done and it was. Not over cooked, cooked just right. The burger and fries I choose to go with it were... More
