The service was very friendly here. The food was excellent, even if the macaroni and cheese was too rich to finish!

not snooty at all for the fine dining place. Price is pretty reasonable considering you want southern food in montana. I had my birthday dinner and was very happy with this choice. Would go there again, any day. Chef is definitely trained and the preparations are exquisite. Keep in mind this is more for a cajun/Louisiana kinda place and not... More

Read the Trip Advisor recommendations and they got this one right!!! Excellent service and great food. Price was reasonable, charming environment and a good time. We tried the seafood and split a salad and everything was great.

We were in Whitefish for one night and hotel recommended this restaurant. It was a beautiful day and we really wanted to be outside, this place has only indoor (and rather dark) seating. SO, we had a drink somewhere else (roof top bar), and ate dinner here. We were eating late so had no problem getting a table. Very friendly... More

Could not get service at another restaurant so stopped here. No reservations, but were seated immediately. Server was knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. The Cajan Chicken Penne Pasta with Basil Cream sauce was wonderful! However, it was so large we could have split one. Ended up taking more that half of each home. Will definitely return.

The environment, servers and food was good but it really does not live up to the higher pricing. The main issue was the quality of the food based in the price. The food is not bad in any way but when the price is 20 to 30 dollars more was to be expected out of the food.

My wife and I walked into the Tupelo Grille off the street with no reservation. We were lucky to be there a few minutes after 5:00 pm, as the restaurant was fully booked and we sat in one of several tables near the bar that are reserved for those with no reservations. I ordered the Zydeco Combo, consisting of a... More

Wonderful food. Oh such decisions...shrimp with grits, chicken and dumplings, lamb, beef...so many wonderful dishes. And don't miss the arugula and Parmesan salad, gumbo and crab cakes. Best to go with a few people who are willing to share. Deserts are just a delight if you can save a little room. Excellent cocktails and wine selection. I like eating at... More

We loved our meal here and had great service. Blue corn pudding and superb filet were the highlights. Check it out!

After having some just "so-so" dinners in Whitefish, we stumbled onto Tupelo Grille. The food, services, and drinks were wonderful and I wish we had found it sooner. I highly recommend it!
