Transporting you to the very heart of the Northern Rockies, the casual, rustic atmosphere with unique Montana Lodgepole furniture, stunning panoramic canvas and historic photographs sets the tone for distinctive, creatively prepared food served by vibrant employees renowned for passing their upbeat attitudes on to our customers. The MacKenzie River menu features an incredible array of delectable dishes, always flavorful and fresh, and served up in heaping portions. The acclaimed gourmet pizzas are offered on a variety of crusts – original, thin and gluten-free – with toppings from classic pepperoni to pesto, ricotta, and sun-dried tomato. With nearly two dozen pizzas on the menu, you are bound to find at least one you’ll love. MacKenzie River also offer hearty sandwiches served warm on fresh-baked bread, full and half-sized salads, pastas that will wow your taste buds. You will find everything from Pulled Pork Nachos and Buffalo Chicken Mack n’ Cheese to a fresh Cobb Salad, housemade soups and Wings. Be sure to save room for the Mack Lovin dessert, gooey chocolate chip cookies topped with ice cream and chocolate sauce; it’s great for sharing.

A nice place with good food

Mackenzie River is a Montana company with several restaurants in the state. I have eaten at a handful of them. They do not deliver but the food is good.

Neat atmosphere but service was not great. Only ordered pizza and it was equal to a frozen pizza. Nothing great about it. Choc chip cookie dessert was fabulous, though.

We have high standards coming from NY - it tasted like a frozen pizza. Wings were good but on the expensive side! We did take out - maybe it's better if you eat there.

We had just gotten off of the plane and were starving so we dashed in and got a table for lunch. We were not disappointed with the service or the food. My husband got the Ruben and I got the Italian Panini both were served with waffle fries. Yum!

This is a popular chain in this part of the country - very nice decor - pizza was less than average - a big disappointment....

We went to the one in Polson and thought the food was good so decided to grab a quick lunch while in Whitefish. We ordered the wings (so good!) and the salads- I got the beet salad and my boyfriend got the spinach one. The small salads are the perfect size for a light lunch or dinner. Everything was fresh...

We got there pretty close to closing time after what was apparently a very busy night. The waitress could have easily gone through the motions with us and we would have understood. Instead she was incredibly attentive,friendly and conversational. The food was fresh and and tasty. As we left we could see how spotless the kitchen was kept...a big plus.... More

We ordered takeout after a day of fishing. This was the final pizza place in Whitefish we wanted to try this summer. We unanimously agreed it was our favorite. Nice tangy tomato sauce and crispy crust. No skimping on the meat or veggies. We will be ack to try another.

Whitefish was buzzing on the night that we visited Mackenzie River Pizza Co. Took us about 20 minutes to get a table (the shortest wait in town). The takeout counter server hooked a couple of us up with beers while we waited, which was nice. I split an artichoke, mushroom and sausage hand-tossed pizza with my girlfriend. We found the... More

This is a local chain and we decided to check it out. It felt like a chain. But the food was good. The service was good. All in all it was adequate.
