Our waiter was the worst. Food was not cooked properly and I was told I’d receive one side and got something different. No explanation until I asked and no apologies. Our waiter couldn’t even get the basics right. I wouldn’t return.

We ate dinner here tonight and it was fabulous. It’s a beautiful little setting by a stream. The root beer on tap was amazing! My friend and I split the eggroll appetizer and the bison sliders. The portions were huge and we couldn’t finish it...even with splitting. The service was friendly and quick. I highly recommend this place.More

We came here for dinner and we had a very pleasant experience. Burrito was good and large enough to share. I had a garden city pizza, delicious and full of flavor. The root beer was also good, refreshing taste. I highly recommend this place.

We love everything about this place. The staff, setting, food and beer are all exceptional. It doesn't matter whether you sit inside or out, the ambiance is friendly and fun. Portions are huge and their garlic bleu cheese fries are decadent. You won't need to...eat for the rest of the day. It was great to finally be able to get back to the Tamarack. Thank you for another wonderful experience .More

This is a cool place for families to spend some time. They were easily able to accommodate our large group of nine people, which had 5 kids ranging from 4-9 years. The kids spent most of their time playing in the creek, while we adults...enjoyed food and drinks on the expansive deck overlooking the creek. We were happy that the kids were entertained with the creek because it allowed the adults to relax. The decor has a cool industrial yet comfortable feel. Their kids’ menu had simple child-friendly options (mac & cheese, burger, noodles with butter or marina), which our kids enjoyed. The adults ordered the Big Sky Burger, Huckleberry Salmon, and Chicken Caesar salad, and they were all very tasty. They have a wide selection of beers. We ordered the Flagship Flight, which had samplers of 8 beers. The beers were decent. Overall, this is a nice brewery with good food. I definitely recommend Tamarack.More

Stopped here on the way to our townhouse in Columbia Falls. Great location on a stream. Very appealing interior design. Our server, Angelo was very helpful with the menu. I ordered fish and chips, but I was skeptical. It was outstanding! My wife had the...railroad ties appetizer as a meal. They were unique and very tasty. Our friends had the salmon sandwich and loved it. Would definitely go back if ever in the area.More

We came in with a large group, which we split into several large tables. Staff was very helpful in allowing us to settle in and then right there to take our drink orders. Meal orders were taken in a timely manner, and the meals actually...made it out in a surprisingly speed way, considering the number of meals requested. Every dinner looked tremendous, tasted awesome and was fresh and hot. Well done kitchen staff! Our server, Talls, was pleasant - fun - and efficient, as were all the staff. It's a do over place to eat when we are back in the area.More

Just a heads up that the server with an eye tattoo on the back of his neck and glasses was quite rude this evening as we finally got a table to drink our beers. He let us know how irritated he was that we were...sitting and drinking but not ordering food or another round. We were planning to return tomorrow for dinner with a friend but it’s obvious we’ll be better off grilling at the resort.More

This place came recommended to me by a local and I was not disappointed. Very friendly staff with kids welcome, food portions were large and micro brews were great. Cozy atmosphere next to the fire and easy to find in Lakeside, Montana. When traveling with...my wife and kids and in lakeside, this will be one of our stops.More

Tamarack Brewing Company came highly recommended from people who live in the area. We were not disappointed. The brewery does a very good business, as we had to wait 20 minutes for a table. Each of us in our party ordered a beer, and we...found each beer to be very tasty. We all ordered the same dish: French Dip Sandwich. We all found the sandwiches to be delicious. There was a generous portion of beef in the sandwich, and the baguette tasted warm and fresh. My son and I split a pizza cookie for dessert. I highly recommend it, as the cookie is a half baked chocolate chip cookie with ice cream. It is a large portion. This is definitely a place worth visiting, again and again.More

Have talked with the manager several times over a couple of years and still there are NO vegan or vegetarian dinner options, WTF! If you want to eat healthy or have family that are vegan this is not the place to eat. The beers are...good and the carnivore options are ok but nothing healthy otherwise. Too bad, we used to love this place.More

Locals said not to miss this place, and they were right. Cool patio, great bar. Giant portions. Nachos are crazy good. Everyone enjoyed the atmosphere and food.
