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.

We wandered in here for lunch and beers after the Dragon Boat festival. The place was pretty busy but we were seated pretty quickly. We ordered food and beers and we enjoyed their beer selection. My boyfriend got the basket of cheese fries and I ordered the pizza rolls. The food was hot and good (and large portions... we ended... More

We had a great meal here after travelling all day. The ribs were good and the French dip sandwich lasted for two meals. The beer was very good (and you can get some in cans or growlers). Our server brought us a couple of beer samples and was very accommodating to our several requests.

We stopped here for a late lunch on our way to Bigfork. Not many diners inside or outside. We were seated right away on the patio, which was a nice setting for an afternoon meal. Once seated, it took about 10 minutes to get water and eating utensils. We ordered beer, which was tasty and refreshing, and our salads. The... More

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..
