The views of the lake from the decks are amazing. The atmosphere is upbeat and fun. Our server was truly a breath of fresh air ... he was friendly, knowledgeable and was interested in making our dining experience enjoyable. The food and drinks were pretty...good as well.More

We kayaked to the Raven and tied up at their dock. Ate on the lower patio and had burgers. Very average food. Can not beat the location tho! Great spot to enjoy the lake. Restaurant is festive and has a fun vibe. The night before...we ate across the street at their sister restaurant, the Bonfire, and heard live music playing! Had to check it out! Listened to a great duo from Canada playing country folk. Was really fun. Drinks were poured fair and prices were fair.More

On August 28, 4 of us went to lunch at The Raven on Flathead Lake. My 91 year old cousin paid the bill with his credit card. After signing the receipt he didn’t get his card back. The waitress said she gave it to him....He asked her to look in the folder and she refused saying she was way to busy. He asked the bartender who was the “acting boss” and he also refused to look in the black folders. My cousin asked to talk to the owner because he was not leaving without his card. They flippantly told him he could go across the road and up the hill and talk to her. He’s 91 and walks with a cane. Finally, he calls the sheriff and as he was waiting for them to show up, along comes the owner of the business. She starts flipping through the folders and kind of throwing them down in front of him. Well after a few, there was his card. She say, is this yours? And when he said yes, she said “Oh, sorry about that” in a condescending tone. That was the only apology he got. This could have been handled by the waitress in about 2 minutes had she bothered to look in the beginning. As we were finally leaving my sister sees the waitress and tells her they found the card. Her response was,”please don’t come back”.More

We are traveling with our dogs from out of state and the manager was so kind and allowed our dogs to be on the patio with us. The view was amazing and so was the food!

Service is terrible in many ways. Staff is rude, unhelpful, slow and condescending. They don’t go the extra inch let alone mile. The food is mediocre at best. The view is nice but not enough to draw me back. Did I mention rude staff?

Went there on a Friday, no servers downstairs till 4:30, saw some servers upstairs but no one helped us. We ordered drinks and “shrimp on the barB”. Waited and waited, ordered another drink, waited and waited. Finally asked about our food after seeing other people...get their food who were seated after us. Turns out that our food order was never placed!!! They brought us complimentary drinks but we had already had enough! They didn’t charge us for drinks but NO food! We had a great experience the day before but this time it was ridiculous!! I heard a waiter say that they can’t get anyone to work! Really? We won’t be back! Too bad.More

HI I am sorry for being tardy answering this. They don't take reservations and you can usually get in. They just opened a new BONFIRE restaurant and bar right across the street and the Sitting Duck is also right in that... More
