If you love good good and craft beer this is the spot. Beautiful working brewery in a really funky newer building. It was crowded for a late lunch but we were seated immediately on their outdoor patio. Our server was great and we didn't wait long for our food. Delicious beer Bree sandwich and a burger. The pepper slaw is... More

Just wanted a good beer after a few hours paddle boarding. We stayed for lunch. Great beer! Fantastic food! Top meal on our trip. Even if you don't drink beer, go for the food.

Every part of our late lunch exceeded our expectations. Great service, great beers, great food. Not your typical bar food, they have that too, but a very well rounded menu with some unexpected items as well. The pork burrito, flatbreads, and the burgers were all way above average.

The Tamarack Brewing Company is easily my favorite place to eat and drink. It truly encompasses the "Montana Feel." The food is amazing, the beer is top of the line, and the building itself is a great place to spend time with families and friends. Check out their back patio during the summer evenings for a relaxing place to listen... More

This is a favorite of ours when we visit Flathead Lake. The Brie salad is outstanding. The brew bread sandwiches are delicious. The fish and chips are tasty with huge portions. Their beers are excellent. Outdoor seating is wonderful.

We had the opportunity to eat at the Tamarack Brewing Company while visiting friends in Lakeside. The Tamarack was "hopping" both nights that we ate there - yes, we liked it so much we went back. The craft beers were excellent. I tried several. They do offer a beer sampler of up to 12 beers. I stuck with the 8... More

Enjoying our annual cross country motorcycle ride. Tonight we chose Tamaracks. My wife had the seafood chowder and Cobb salad with Salmon. I went for the fish and chips. All the food was excellent! My wife raved about the chowder. The only negative was I didn't ask for an outside table and the place was packed and noisy. I guess... More

Went because we were informed the beer was good and appetizers were too. It was good food, service at the bar the first time we went was poor but was good at the table when we went a 2nd time.

This is a very cool place and a must experience when in the Big Fork Area of Montana. We got in and sat outside next to a trickling creek and in the shade. It was a great day, weather was perfect and although the place was busy, we were served with a smile and all the staff was very personable... More

It was a gorgeous evening to be sitting on the deck with great people. The service was top-notch, the food choices abundant and tasty. I'm not a drinker but the brew choices seemed unending. My husband had the mid-dark Yard Sale and loved it. I really enjoyed my large plate of fish tacos. Hubby's burger would take me three days... More
