At the bottom of Blacktail ski resort, good eats and even better beer! Plenty of tables with sports TVs in view. Love the Yard Sale Amber, also tried the Seasonal Flight of 5 beers and a root beer. Didn't like the cider but the rest...ranged from good to excellent! BBQ pizza was very good! In more favorable weather, the outdoor areas would be a nice place to relax. Service was fast and friendly.More

We try to time our trips to Whitefish or Glacier NP so that we can stop for lunch or early dinner at Tamarack. Great selection of high quality beers and a nice selection of very appetizing dishes. We usually get fish and chips and/or fish...tacos. Always prepared very nicely.More

This a casual style microbrewery restaurant and we just expected pub type food. What a pleasant shock! The menu had far more variety than we expected and the food was excellent! We had a pizza one day for lunch that was great and then went...back for dinner the next day. Their beer is very good, but their margarita was unbelievably good. The restaurant is lively, up tempo and the service is very good.More

We were on the look-out for a decent meal. The reviews were good so we stopped in to try dinner. It was Thursday night, people were waiting, we put our names in & were told it would be 30 -35 minutes. At 50 minutes we...asked where we were on the wait list, we were next! We got the text that our table was ready! We ordered the wild Atlantic haddock tacos and the spinach brie salad along with the beer sampler. Ohmigosh, Delicious!! Well Worth the Wait!! Our waitress Shelbey was very attentive but not bothersome. This is our new Favorite place near Flathead Lake!More

We visit Tamarack a lot on our visits to the Flathead Valley. This recent trip was no exception. I think we went three times in five weeks. It's a go to restaurant for great food & drinks and a super nice atmosphere. This time we...are, of course, living in a pandemic. At Tamarack they take this very seriously. Tables are spaced far apart, they are meticulously cleaned and the staff do all they can to make the guests feel safe. We don't go out much because we worry about what we'll encounter. Thankfully Tamarack helps us put those worries aside. For that I am truly grateful.More

We went during the end of happy hour and there was a little wait ( only 15 minutes) so we grabbed a beer and waited. Once we got our table we tried the spinach artichoke dip because we heard great things about it ( it...lives up to its expectations). I had the fish tacos and they were great! Make sure you are hungry because it’s a LOT of food! Our waitress was a little skeptical of my out fo State ID which made our experience a little awkward at times- other than that Highly recommend!More
