For special occasions of couples or small groups, I would recommend asking for seating in the "library". For kids, the "tavern" has games suitable for kids so if you are wanting to catch baseball game on their large TV you and your kids will be entertained. For the drinking group, step up to their bar and gather with friends. For... More

Finally a restaurant here with friendly great service. Non pretentious!!! The food is great. Best salmon salad ever! We enjoy going to a restaurant where everything comes together perfectly. This place has been around a long time and deserves more recognition than it's snooty competitors.

The Bigfork Inn has been serving dinner to locals and vacationers for decades, so they must be doing something right....and they are. Nothing trendy or edgy, but the old world ambiance is very appealing and relaxing. Old school menu. Food was good, not great. Service excellent. This was our second visit. Will return for a night out, probably not for... More

Our family of 8 dined on the patio and enjoyed the meal. Food was good but not great and the service was good, as well.

Our first visit to the area and friends suggested we have dinner at the Bigfork Inn. They have an excellent menu ranging from steak to seafood. We had two appetizers, calamari fingers and egg rolls. Both were excellent. I personally had the chicken cordon blue with fries and my wife had the salmon. The meals was very well prepared and... More

You'll not miss the Bigfork Inn. A beautiful old lodge with a large dining room. Sadly, the rooms are no longer available for rent, likely due to the expense of maintaining so few rooms. The menu is rather unexpected for a small town, though they cater to tourists. Nice fish and seafood, steaks and ribs. I enjoyed a "Black and... More

A pleasant meal on the deck, salmon salad and a burger, made so much nicer by the friendly server and host. Good food, great service and shared memories of a stay in the former inn 30 years ago.

Very cute decor, plentiful outdoor seating with view of town and possibly the lake if in the right spot. Offered steaks, several seafood dishes and two different types of schnitzel. Family friendly.

We went here to have a nice dinner for our 22nd Anniversary. We did not have reservations, but did not need them since they were not that busy. They sat us right by a busy door that they were constantly and I mean constantly going in and out, they ran outside to deal with tables and customers out there. It... More
