I went here my last night in Montana, I wish I had found it sooner. evidently Tuesday is trivia night. Everyone did and does get involved, makes for a great way to get to know neighbors and other people sitting close by. We went just for drinks and finger food, and had a great time.

Went here for dinner at the advice of a nearby hotel receptionist - great choice. Terrific food. Great portions. Had the pork BBQ sandwich and the beer bread appetizer with the fruit crumble for dessert. Highly recommended. Large of selection of beers to go along. The service was exceptional. Too bad I'm flying home from Montana or I'd be back... More

This is an amazing place! But if you want to get the most out of it you have to get a table outside by the river! And if you're going to this brewery for the... beer; i would suggest getting free samples (4 per table).

We ate here on the recommendation of a Minnesota friend. The food was very good. We had no wait on a Friday night. The only negative was the very high noise level in the restaurant. Get an outside table if you can..

We stopped in on the recommendation of our B&B host and were very pleased we did. Good food and good beer; hard to get any better than this.

This has been the third time I've been to this restaurant when visiting Montana. Each time a different experience. Not an easy place to fine because of the trees, but that makes some of the ambiance.

Montana Pizza and Bear Bottom Blonde!!! We like our pizza crust thin and extra crispy. They nailed it! The different cheeses give this pizza so much flavor. Really lovely location too. Love the ironwork

My husband and I love the setting of this restaurant. It's delightful. But the spinach salad was average, at best ... spinach was straight from the bag with stems on, dressing was average. We are admittedly picky salad eaters but this was just boring. Had a great glass of wine and the rest of the family were fine with their... More

We dined at Tamarack 3 times while visiting Flathead Lake. We were served large portions but the food, beer and atmosphere were good. And the service was great!
