I know that when you think creole, the first thing that pops up in your mind is Whitefish Montana. But this is a seriously good creole restaurant. We shared the dinner sampler and it a great assortment. Extensive menu, something for everyone and plenty of non-spicy food for the non-Cajun fans. Great service. Need reservations. A really nice surprise.

This was a wonderful surprise. The food was excellent. The chef follows southern cooking tradition but adds a dash of innovation. Service was terrific although the restaurant was crowded (we think it is probably always crowded - with good reason). A little on the loud side. We tried the crab hush puppies (very good), the gumbo (excellent), and the shrimp... More

Best dumplings I've ever had. A signature dish here. Great atmosphere. Great wait staff. Wonderful dining experience. We go to Tupelo Grill every year when we visit Whitefish! It is a must for our family!

Went here recently and we had a very good dinner. I had the mac and cheese and my husband had a pork dish. The food was very good, although my portion was fairly small. The bread pudding for dessert was excellent. I really enjoyed this restaurant, although, I would probably not return because the prices are a bit high ....... More

Reserve ahead but also drop in and try food at the bar if you can find a seat. Popular and we know why - nice service, tasty food, just right.

This restaurant was rated number 1 by the reviewers on trip advisor so we decided to have our final dinner while vacationing in this restaurant. It was a Saturday night and we did not have reservations. We got there at 6:45 and were told that there would be no tables until 9pm. The hostess said that if we did not... More

Attractive bar addition to the dinning room. Some excellent creative house cocktails. Tapas were very good. We just happened to order three that were gluten free, even though were are not gluten intolerant. They we tasty. There is a lively bar scene. The service is excellent. I look forward to returning.

Now fine dining in whitefish montana just got better! The best restaurant in Whitefish just added a little outdoor patio bringing a little bit of the charm of San Francisco and NYC to the great outdoors. Had the catfish strips and arugula fennel and pine nuts salad- yummy!

The place has plenty of covers but we were lucky to get in as it was buzzing. The service was helpful and the water glass never ran dry. This was some feat as we had just returned from a long hike on a hot day in Glacier National Park. Well, nearly 12 miles is long for us anyway! The food... More

This place is a gem. Good food, good service, interesting menu. Try the fennel salad with baby arugula and roasted pine nuts.. The shrimp and grits are authentic southern style with a complex and interesting flavor profile. The mac and cheese is a hearty effort with pancetta.
