Great selection of beer on tap. Went with my wife while we were in Kalispell for a long weekend. It was a Saturday evening on the long weekend, therefore there was a long line to get a table. But, on the plus while waiting we were able to try several of their beers! After we got a table we were... More

We came here as a group of six at the end of September on a Friday night, and while it was busy we hadn't made a reservation, we only had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. The service was great and the waitress was able to provide some suggestions on the types of beer to order. My husband... More

Finally made it down to Bigfork to my family's cabin and this was high on the list to visit. The brewery didn't let us down. We sat on the patio and ate our massive dinners and drank from the list. It was a great night and we will go back for sure. Only disappointment is there is no dock for... More

We had the Octoberfest Burger, a Pastrami Sandwich, and RyePaleAle and a Kölsch. Every thing was really good. We will come back, for sure.

Ya' know the food is not four star (great Beer Pub fare), but the beers sure are. Great Staff!! They always remember you and will sometimes even remember a beer you tried you especially liked. Trivia night on Tuesday's is a blast!! Comments indicate we were ONLY here in October, but we have a Trivia group that are regulars and... More

We kind of stumbled across this place and did a tasting plate of the regular and seasonal beers (we couldn't decide, you see, so we thought, "Let's try it all!"). This was possibly a mistake as it was a LOT of beer. Some of it was awesome, some of if was not, some of it was interesting. But all of... More

You are guaranteed to run into a crowd at the Tamarack if trying to get a table on a weekend dinner. Realize the inconvenience is a result of how consistent both the food and service is. The Tamarack serves high quality pub / diner type fare in a relaxed atmosphere. Start off with one of their many onsite crafted brews.... More

My wife, grandchildren and I stopped at the Tamarack Brewing Company on the way home from Whitefish and its Oktoberfest. The business has a good decor inside and plenty of seating. We were seated outside on the patio which was very nice. There were lots of trees and a stream running by the business. It was very relaxing. The kids... More

First off, let me start by saying that we used to visit the Tamarack in Missoula very often and wanted to see the Brewery in Lakeside. We stopped in at the Tamarack on way through Lakeside to Whitefish around 4PM. We had to ask for Happy Hour menus to start with which I thought was really odd. We placed our... More
