Stopped in for a late lunch on our first day in the area. Enjoyed eating outside on one of the picnic tables. Our lunch was so good we wanted to come back again the next day! Looking forward to a return visit one day!

We were able to sit outside, and listen the gentleman fiddle. The food was good, fast service. Price is just right for the quality of food.

This was the best barbeque we had on our 4000 mile, 10 state Corvette trip last summer. When we are back in Whitefish, we will definitely eat here again.

Waitress forgot to out our order in, we sat for over 20 minutes waiting and watching everyone who came in behind us getting their food. Finally got her attention, no apology, no attempts to make it right...we are local and we will never go back.

Visited Whitefish for our second time and decide that the BBQ was on the menu again. Staff are really friendly and strike the perfect balance of attentiveness. I went for the 3 meats option; chicken was perfect, pulled pork hit the spot but the brisket was a tad dry: no biggy but was a slight downer. Everything else was perfect.... More

A family of 15 showed up this evening and didn't mind waiting. Only one server who worked there. And it was almost full. We knew she was way behind the service. I went and looked for the seat and she yelled nothing available. I hope she wouldn't gave us attitude and basically kicked us out because she couldn't handled all... More

Authentic BBQ in small town Montana. We have tried combinations of signature salads (love the fajita salad) sandwiches (you have no idea what you're in for when you order the True Grit) and of course, the ribs. Good selection of microbrews and friendly service!

We got the 3 meat platter and fried pickels, everything was very good especially the fried pickels!!! Service was good too and the restaurant was small but they had seating outside as well.
