Love It

Absolutely love this place. The food is excellent as is the beer. Watch out if your order nachos. One order will feed 4 people. Good variety of original beers.

The Rack is great because not only does it have great beers & a solid menu, but it has liquor too & is open later than 8pm (you MT beer aficionados know what I'm talking about). Always busy for the dinner rush between 6-8. Families dig the place & so will you.

If you're looking for good food and service come here. Priced right and portions large enough to share. The craft beers have something for everyone. Try the sampler cuz there are some that don't suit every palette. This place is very busy during peak times so be prepared to wait to get in. Worth the wait. I've tried most places... More

As always everthing here is very tasty and the local brew excellent. The restaurant has recently added on and remodeled, only making the whole experience better. The burgers are excellent and their batter fried fish and chips a favorite of ours. Try some of the local beers they are really good.

Great choice for good food, great service, and beer. There was a resort town-feel however we fit right in.

We've eaten here a few times when we have been in the Kalispell area. The food, service and beer have all been very good every time we have been here. On our last trip we had the wings, garlic cheese fries, a pasta dish, soup and a steak. Everything was delicious. Be careful with the garlic cheese fries though as... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the Flathead area. We make sure we visit every time we travel down to Whitefish from Calgary. We've tried several dishes and they're all very tasty. We just finished a 3 week long motorcycle trip from Calgary to San Diego and I saw (and tried) garlic fries at a couple of places... More

We had dinner here twice, beer of course is great, wine list not too bad and service was quite good. We ate outside along a small creek and it added to the pleasure of dining. They have good menu with variety of choices, but the dessert of chocolate chip cookie/pizza is to die for. We shared but on 2nd thought... More
