I live in Whitefish and have eaten at this restaurant many times. It is very popular with locals, but truly the food is nothing special. I mean, they have decent pizza and sandwiches, but it is sort of greasy and just lacking in quality and flavor. Their signature chicken chili suffers from a chicken deficit and bean surplus, and their... More

Had awesome pasta dish - Cajun chicken. Wife had chicken lasagna - unique and some of the best she ever tasted, she said. We did not try the pizza but the ones we saw being served look really good. Would definitely eat there again.

This is a go to place for us whenever we are in Whitefish. The ambiance is fun and the pizza excellent. You can split the pizza into two types which we do. The location is good for people watching and parking

Everything here was fabulous, the atmosphere the waitress and food. My husband had the rancher pizza. The veggies were fresh and juicy and the pepperoni crispy it was perfect! I had the Thai pizza with mandarin oranges and spicy peanut sauce. It wasn't too spicy just perfect the crunch of the peanuts really took it over the top.

Great pizza, great service, fun family-friendly spot! The pizza variety and toppings are fantastic, and always fresh, hot and tasty - the Madison is not to be missed! A Whitefish favourite!

Great atmosphere walking in to the MacKenzie River Pizza company--we had fantastic service (thanks Eric) and a fantastic meal. They offer a variety of salads, sandwiches, pasta and pizza.

MacKenzie is one of our go-to lunch spots. Great selection of pizzas and sandwiches, as well as a good beer selection. Bring an appetite! The place has a good vibe and the bar area is perfect for watching sports.

We always come to the Mackenzie RPC when in town. There are always 12 guys or so on a golf trip. The service this time around was particularly well down. Very attentive and the food was also terrific. Great Pizzas and pasta dishes...
