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

Well what can we say, what a fantastic place for dinner! We went twice and thoroughly enjoyed the menu and service. Being kiwi`s, the beer selection was great and did not disappoint! We would certainly recommend this to anyone staying in Somers.

We enjoyed Tamarack Brewing Company - the food was very good and the beer was even better. We ate outside - the inside is very "industrial" and noisy. Our server could have been better. She didn't seem to enthused to be there and less enthused to be helpful.

Everything about this restaurant was great! My husband enjoyed the Yard Sale beer very much. Our food was excellent and our waitress was terrific. We will return before we leave for Georgia!

For you hockey fans out there, this is Lanny's bar....owned and operated by Lanny McDonald, former Calgary Flame. The food is great, and good selection. Tamarack is a microbrewery, so lots of cool brews to choose from. Atmosphere is relaxed. Beautiful outdoor seating area as well. It also seems to be a favourite of the locals.

Went on the advice of our hotel. Nice selection of beer and we enjoyed the two varieties we tried. I had the fish tacos and DW had the sliced prime rib sandwich with onions and mushrooms. She loved the prime rib sandwich which she couldn't finish because it was so large. The pepper coleslaw with the sandwich was really good.... More
