My husband and I loved this restaurant. The Cajun dishes were delicious and seasoned to perfection. The décor was enjoyable with lovely art work. They have other things besides Cajun dishes but loving New Orleans cooking as we do it was a treat to sample the southern food. Be sure and try the catfish appetizer. The Best!!!

Having worked on food shows for several years, I confess I have a discerning palette, and this restaurant absolutely measures up. Ordered the tuna special seared rare and it was unbelievable. The cole slaw dish was crunchy and flavorful and completely unique. Any dish is as good as its primary ingredients, and each element was fresh and well thought-out. My... More

Wow! The entire experience at this restaurant was fantastic: the service, the drinks, the food choices, and the atmosphere. A great gem in Whitefish.

Had a great cajun pasta dish at this place. This is a nice place to have an upscale dinner while staying in Whitefish. This restaurant has a varied menu, great service and a wonderful wine list. This restaurant could make it in New York City, definitely dine here if you're in Whitefish.

We eat here every time in town (once a year). The staff are attentive and knowlegeable about wine! Very comfortable and cozy place to eat and then enjoy the lounge and band. Food is prepared impecably as expected and stafff are very concerned about your opinion of the excellent fare served. Go there and enjoy.

I have never seen my husband eat this slow... to enjoy his food longer! The food was excellent, nice presentation and very tasty. The service was fast and friendly and with eye for detail. This is THE place in Whitefish, MT. They will see us again on out next visit to the Flathead!

This is by far my most favorite restaurant in Whitefish. I go every time I'm in the Flathead. I've tried many dishes but my go to is the Cajun Penne Pasta. They have a great wine selection. The atmosphere is relaxing and casual. The staff is always friendly and knowledgeable. Tupelo Grill is a must when in the Valley!

Great appetizers; well selected wine list; a touch of Cajun cuisine. Expanded restaurant and elegant bar provide plenty of room for differing experiences - dining, a quick drink, eating at the bar, an extended evening with drinks in the bar area.

A surprising dining experience centered around a Southern theme. Wish we lived closer to this establishment so we could frequent it a minimum of once a week. Excellent!
