Recently dined here while on vacation. Family living in Kalispell frequent this place often because of the great food. I wholeheartedly agree. I had the gluten free mediterranean salmon, mashed potatoes & asparagus. It was absolutely delicious. Another family member raved about the railroad ties appetizer that he would NOT share with anyone else!!! My husband enjoyed the fish tacos... More

We stopped here with three cousins and one other spouse on the Sunday before the 4th of July. The place was full, we put our names on the list, were given a pager and told it would be 20-30 minutes. Most places that would mean at least an hour wait. We were called before our 20 minutes were up and... More

The food here was absolutely fantastic! Very large portions as well, so come hungry. We ordered a flight of beer, which included all 8 originals on tap. The beer was very unique and we really enjoyed at least half of the beers. The Apricot brew and the Blonde Ale were our (my wife and my) favorites.

I'm not a beer drinker so I'll leave the beer reviews to those who are. However, I can attest to the quality of the food here! The nachos are among the best I've ever had and the mixed cocktails were delicious too. The staff was fantastic - attentive and friendly and the atmosphere was very relaxed and casual. Even better,... More

Visiting Glacier National Park at high season, we found ourselves staying South of Whitefish and Kalispell, Montana. Hotel staff told us about this brewhouse in Lakeside by Flathead Lake. The brews were many and good, and we saw them offered at other establishments. I had fish tacos one meal and at another a very acceptable strip steak with mash and... More

Stopped here for lunch and sat out on the patio. Have been told by many people to go here for a meal. When we were seated at our table on the patio, we immediately noticed the abundance of flies on the table. I don't know what they were attracted to but they were pretty annoying....I hate flies. They seemed to... More

This restaurant is well located next to a beautiful tree lined stream, and it was quite busy, so someone must have had a decent meal. We did not. The Oregon chardonnay was weak, the house made beer quite good. The Caesar salad was limp and soggy, truly inedible. The veggie "bread" (a wrap") was a mess of mushroom and pepper... More

My family of 5, two adults, one teen, two under 10, just ate dinner here. The fish tacos may be the best thing I've ever eaten. Ever. We also had the Bison burger which was good, the chicken nachos, kids burger and kids pizza. There was more than enough food. Even the kids meals filled up the kids. I am... More
