Food is ok. We have been coming here for years. There is not much else to choose from in lakeside. Service is usually pretty good. They ran out of lunch special by 1:15 the other day. Good beer. You get big portion's. Burger's are good, pizza ok ,the burrito is enough for 2 people.

We came across the Lakeside, MT location by chance. It is in such a beautiful area! Staff was all so friendly, attentive and helpful and the food was excellent! I had a side salad that was very fresh and crisp and then we shared a pizza. Thin crust just like we like it! My husband enjoyed their beer and they... More

I trusted the reviews and tried this place and really enjoyed it. Good beer and the best pastrami sandwich I ever had. Wish I could go back.

We recently visited Tamarack Brewing Company as it was recommended by a friend. We drove to Lakeside and found this gem, and are very happy we did! The food was excellent, price was reasonable, and the beer was great! We didn't have to wait - we were a party of 6 with kids and they got us a table right... More

While travelling trough the shores of alluring Flathead Lake we made a planned stop at this modern , comfortable and warm Brewery. We sat in the patio on a warm and bright day on a table which is next to the creek that runs along the back yard giving you that alluring picnic kind of feeling. Great variety of beers:... More

This place has pretty usual types of food with unusually good flavor. They give you a ton of food for the price. The service is fast and friendly. I loved the prime rob brew bread. The meat was so delicious. Great to have such a stand out place in such a small place like lakeside.

The food here was great and a fresh alternative after so many heavy pub meals on our vacation. The service was just ok. She was busy and at times I waited without refills, also she delivered our bill without us asking and without offering dessert which we would have bought. When we first sat down it was 530 and they... More

First time eating at this restaurant, got right in with party of 9. Service was excellent and fast. Everyone enjoyed the entrée they ordered and selection of beer was great. Some reviews said it was hard to find but we had no difficulty with getting to location. Lakeside should be very proud to have this place in their town.

I guess it's a good location if you want a full dinner and brew pub beer, but I probably wouldn't bother going back again. We had the giant plate of nachos for dinner which was good, but our service was not great. Our waiter acted as if we were putting him out. On the plus side, I did enjoy the... More
