My daughter and her fiancee chose to get married with the simplest of short ceremonies, and we used the private upstairs room for the event. The room is small and intimate, and can be made private by large sliding doors. The food was fabulous. We had a great time. I have to give a happy thank-you to the wonderful server... More

This place is old-school, with huge portions of comfort food for every meal. Egg dishes, burgers, and all brunch options are fantastic. The whole family loved it, and servers were great with kids.

Tamarack Brewing is a great restaurant. They serve good beer and the food is excellent. I especially liked their burgers. They are in a great location right on a little creek and the building is really neat too.

The menu is pretty extensive, the food is excellent, the servings are large, and the service is very good. They always have a large selection of their beers. Their Yardsale ale is one of my favorites. Expect a wait during the summer vacation period, but it's worth it. And the prices are very reasonable!

I go here every time I have guests here in Montana because they can service the tastes of multiple people. My favorite is the fish and chips: $11.99for super crisp beer battered cod and big steak fries. It's way more than I can eat, but my friends always want to try it, too, so it generally gets consumed. The steaks... More

Love this place! Great food, great atmosphere, and decent prices. Huge portions easy for splitting. Family friendly. Busy place in the summer and during ski season, but still worth the stop and wait. Amazing beer too!

Very friendly staff and great atmosphere. The menu has something for everyone and there is always a daily special. Clam chowder on Fridays is the best you will find in the Valley. Lots to choose from on their beer menu. If you visit in the summer try to sit outside by the creek.

The food and beer are both great! Sometimes it takes more time than you would expect to get your food after you order, especially for a larger group. It is noisy unless you are upstairs, outside or in the area with a lower ceiling. Also, in the winter I am always a bit chilled so I take a sweater or... More
