Been here many times, but this place continually gets better every time I visit. $3 pints for happy hour from 3-5pm, and $4 normally. That is unheard of, especially for us Canadians!!! The food is phenomenal. Especially the fish and chips...I could order that every dinner for the rest of my life. The outdoor patio area is huge and is... More

This is a great restaurant and craft brewery in Lakeside Montana. If you can ask for the outdoor seating there's a wonderful little creek running along the back patio. The hummus with veggies is absolutely incredible and you can't go wrong with the chicken quesadilla. Tamarack Brewing Company is a must stop, When touring the Flathead Valley.

This brewpub is between the lake and the ski slope, and has some of the best food and atmosphere in the Kalispell-Flathead Lake area. We ate dinner at the bar and had their pastrami sandwich and one of their many Tamarack draft beers - a great light meal with an upbeat atmosphere. We returned for lunch, and sat on the... More

Tamarack has become a landmark on Flathead Lake for awesome microbrews, consistent food/service, and a gathering place for locals and visitors.

Tamarack has amazing food and beer! The only problem is that everyone else has found them. Expect a wait on weekends, but it's worth it! They have an exceptionally friendly staff that goes above and beyond to make sure you have a great experience. Oh, and did I mention they have great beer?

By the time any of us have reached my age we've doubtless experienced our fair share of brewery/restaurants. Sadly,they're pretty much all the same.with take it out of the Sysco box and put it on the grill or in the deep fryer,menu items. Not Tamarack Brewing in Lakeside though.They offer a pleasing variety of gastro choices with "real thought" put... More

My husband and I were on vacation and were encouraged to eat here by my parents. It was amazing. The food was great and reasonably priced. The beer was awesome too. We ended eating here 3 times on a 4 day vacation because we liked it so much!

Awesome place to eat and grab a local beer! You can't go wrong with anything on the menu (except the salmon) but my favorite are the "brew breads." Really cool laid back vibe and servers that make you feel welcome. The beers are great as well, wish I would have taken one of the jugs you can get home!

There hadn't been many decent places to eat in Lakeside and then a few years ago Tamarack came to town and that changed everything. Tripadvisor asked me "Is this one of the best meals you've ever had in a restaurant?" Well, no. I've had lots of better meals all over the world. But Tamarack brings it all together. They do... More
