Such an amazing early Valentines dinner! Grateful for the many delicious gluten free options. Hubby loved shrimp & grits and I loved my unique vegetarian root vegetable dish - Will be back!

Enjoy yourself to the last minute. Great food and service. Great draft selections. Convenient to all downtown attractions, including the thrift stores run by Flathead Industries and by the Soroptimists. Make reservations. Do not count on a walk-in working very well.

Tapas in bar are great! Duck waffle and sliders are great! My favorite nice bar hangout for Whitefish!

We arrived without a reservation on a Sat. night and were seated within an hour. Had cocktails and a delicious appetizer... shrimp/crawdad cakes. Waitress turned me on to a nice Canadian whiskey, Pendleton, since my usual was unavailable. Dinner was delicious... hubby had the shrimp and grits and I had the Cajun combo... even the bread was outstanding and we... More

Wanted a casual option. Bar at Tupelo fit the bill perfectly. Cauliflower (a tad over cooked) green beans (sweet and savory) elk sliders (more elk pate than meatloaf) and fennel salad were all good. Nothing amazing, but good, solid options. Manhattan from the bar was well executed. Wine list so-so. Our waitress was green and service was a little bumpy.... More

The wine selection is good! They even had my Sonoma Cutrer Russian River, half bottle for only $18.00. Food selection is good.

Like to meet off the bar menu. If eating in dining room ask for a bar menu as well. The poppers are wonderful. Very spicy but I like it hot. Shrimp and grits never let's me down. Bread puddings a must. Best margaritas in town.

We decided to come here since the reviews were so good. The service was mediocre, the quality of food was okay, definitely not worth the price. Probably won't be coming back. Many better places to eat at in Whitefish.

GREAT customer service! My husband and I were recently at Tupelo Grille after we had several people tell us to try the bread pudding after riding the chair lift together. We were in town for a one night escape. The following day we were on our way back to Oregon when I realized I had forgotten my purse in Whitefish.... More
