I had one of the best meals I’ve had for a long time here! The menu is original, the attention to flavour and detail was perfect. You can really sense the labour of love the owner / chef has put into this place. It’s deservedly...very very popular so book in advance if you don’t want to be disappointed. I had the beef tips in blue cheese sauce for starter. The beef was perfect and the sauce was not too over powering or sickly. It was brilliantly made. For main I had trout with the macadamia nut coating. It was one of the most interesting and tasty dishes I’ve ever eaten. The work of a highly talented chef!! Desert was the mini doughnut balls with huckleberry & lemon curd. Delicious. Thanks for a great night!More

The food is actually pretty good but the hostess we had was most unprofessional and rude. Made our dining experience horrible. She was completely unhinged. We got so much better service everywhere else we went in Whitefish.

We had really high hopes for this restaurant after reading several reviews. Unfortunately, it didn’t live up to the buzz in our opinion. Highly recommend making reservations if you do decide to try this restaurant because it’s very small. We won’t be back though.

If you can tolerate rude wait staff while enjoying a delicious meal - then this is a great choice for dinner. Our fifth time eating here, we love the food. Great choices for vegans, healthy portion sizes and the food comes out quickly and hot!...The all female wait staff is an angry bunch who treat their guests like you are inconveniencing them. There’s no “Welcome!” warmth, but rather a “What can I get you” tone. Last night the waitress stacked the dishes right at the table while we were trying to talk at the end of our meal. Clanking around, there was no offer for coffee or dessert, just the check slammed down in the center of the table. We have had this same experience on all five of our visits. The wait staff aside, the food is what has kept us coming back. If the owners would pay as much attention to their service as they do the food - this establishment could be a five star choice!More

If you want an food trip that will hit the ambiance & culinary marks it’s here. For Montana that is! Location is nice easy to get to from Whitefish. I appreciated the vegetarian options on the menu. Wishing that was carried over to the soups...also. It’s nice they use a local coffee roaster (Montana coffee traders) & a favorite of mine. Ahh probably will go back & why not.More

This place came highly recommended by many many people and it totally delivered! We didn’t have a reservation but they were able to seat us (arrived before 5:30). We had a couple of apps (steak tips and mezze platter) and one of the nightly specials...(pork tenderloin). Service was great, food was all delicious. Don’t miss this place!More

Super fresh ingredients, well-balanced dishes and great selection of lighter as well as robust menu items. The local sources for their ingredients are displayed; nice to see. Restaurant describes its dishes as healthy American, and it really is! Each item we had (4 different dishes)...was delicious. Located on the edge of downtown, we easily accessed it from the Snow Bus stop at The Lodge at Whitefish Lake since we didn’t rent a car. Sidewalk on side of road (side of road opposite main lodge). Easy 8-10 minute stroll to restaurant.More

When I ordered the fried chicken sandwich I didn’t expect to be served chicken strips in a roll with garlicky aioli. The sweet potato fries were thin and overdone…dark and crunchy rather than orange and fleshy.

My mouth is still watering after a delicious dinner of bison ragu over spaghetti squash with pecorino and wilted spinach! Last Chair is a few minutes drive outside downtown Whitefish. The menu is innovative, prices reasonable and atmosphere warm and cozy.

We were not the least bit impressed. Food was mediocre; not sure why everyone raves about the steelhead trout. It had little flavor, poorly plated and overpriced. Minimalist wine list is offered. Our server was slow to come to the table and acted very disinterested...throughout the meal. This was our least favorite place in Whitefish and we cannot recommend.More

We really enjoyed our dinner here. The steelhead trout was very good. The service was prompt and attentive. Nice wine list. The ribeye was cooked perfectly and was very enjoyable. I definitely think reservations are needed during high season. Very busy but we were very...well cared for during our dinner.More

I’m sorry but this was slightly better than awful. We ordered macadamia crusted trout and received salmon. The Pad Thai was un-edible. I can not even begin to explain what flavor it had but that was not Pad Thai! My son’s burger was raw. We...will not go back.More
