It is only our second time to Whitefish and now our second time to Tupelo. Memorable, for sure. Highly recommend. The menu feels Cajun, South Western, and French and is an amazing, flavourful experience. I had the delicious classic Shrimp'n Grits and he had the Elk Meat Loaf with Huckleberry sauce reduction and whipped/mashed potatoes. The portions are serious and... More

Whitefish isn't the biggest of towns and not somewhere you'd expect to find sophisticated Southern fare but that's exactly what you'll get at Tupelo Grille. I'm picky about my Southern cuisine, because I have Southern roots, but Tupelo Grille did not disappoint. I'd recommend the shrimp and grits. They are delicious!

We love Tupelo Grill and slways take friends from out of town for a special meal. Nice wine list and good atmosphere. They recently expanded so it is easier to get a table during the busy season, but a reservation is still recommended. I often order the shrimp and grits :-) yum!

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Whitefish. The service is always amazing and the atmosphere is great. More importantly the food is scrumptious!

Went to the Tupelo Lounge twice in one week to enjoy their excellent menu. Hubby LOVES the meatloaf sliders. Had a fantastic salad, French Onion Soup. Daughter had the gumbo and loved it. Others had fresh raw oysters, escargots, beet salad. Great options and excellent flavor. The drinks were great too! Thanks!

I've always liked Tupelos but their recent addition of a bar/lounge area has knocked them off the charts. The group I was with was looking to have dinner but since our group was so large we had about an hour wait. We ended up finding a place to sit in the lounge and wait. It was great! The atmosphere they... More

Having visited Whitefish on many occasions, my husband and I agree that this is our favorite bar.. by far. The cocktails are delicious and fairly priced, and the liquor selection is extensive and different from the norm- but when they're busy, be prepared to wait for a drink. The atmosphere in the lounge area reminds us of being in the... More

Incredible food. We ordered the Shrimp and Grits and the Zydeco Combo. The portion sizes were just right, and the flavors were a delightful diversion from customary Montana fare. The sauces were well composed and seasoned well. Service was fantastic from start to finish. The incompatible ambience is the only unfortunate aspect of this otherwise excellent choice....and ambience is such... More

My husband and I dined here on December 12-23-14. If you are searching for atmosphere, this isn't the place. However, if you dine out for the food, this is the place. The menu has so many interesting choices, it is hard to decide. The wine list is extensive, though the choices by the glass are not so great. Buy a... More

Ate here on the first night of our vacation. It was recommended to us by friends of the restaurant's owners. We were not disappointed! The food was excellent! We started with oysters on the half shell and they were so good I wished we had ordered a full dozen rather than just 6. My husband and I both had tuna... More
