What a super place to stop for lunch. We sat right by the fireplace and had a wonderful lunch special . Our meal was excellent and very large portions. The price was very reasonable.

We've made this brew pub a regular stop on our drive between Coeur D alene and Whitefish. Can't go wrong with really any of their beer selection. This time we had fish and chips and fish tacos. Everything was excellent including server Dalton. We love the ambience of this place as well.

I've eaten many a bison burger in Montana, but this was by far the juiciest and most delicious I've ever had. It was cooked to absolute perfection. The pickles were incredible! I even asked if they made their own! Turns out they don't, but they have a wonderful supplier for pickles for sure. I drank the blonde and it was... More

This place had been recommended to us as we were leaving the area to head back to Spokane. We just planned to have a beverage, but when we viewed some of the dishes coming out of the kitchen, we had to try something. The two of us shared a Cobb Salad with their house huckleberry vinegarette dressing with a bowl... More

We sat at the bar. I ordered a flight of 8 beers. The one beer that really stood out above all the rest was the IPA. Outside of the flight, I tried a Scotch Ale and an IIPA. Both were excellent. Also had a half rack of ribs (came with fries). The ribs were absolutely tender and tasty. Great building,... More

Recently dined in lovely Lakeside @ the Tamarack Brewery. The portions were plentiful and tasty. The service was quick and very friendly. We dined on a Saturday eve, the restaurant was very full. The hostess was very gracious and seated the four of us quickly .

I love this place! The food is amazing and the beer is better. They also brew great root beer for those that don't like beer. A large party can split the enormous nachos (feeds a small army!). The sandwiches are delicious and everything is really fresh.
