This is a great place for pizza and beer. Many brews on tap and the decor is very "mountain"! After traveling all day, this was my "go to" spot for late lunch!

Next to Mooses, this is one of our favorite pizza restaurants. The atmosphere is always great. Service was a little slow and did get our order incorrect on the last visit, but is usually a reliably good and family friendly place to eat in Whitefish.

The Flathead pizza is the best in town! Ingredients were fresh, presentation was nice, and it even reheats well. The service was better than expected. The beer flight was a very good price (only $6). Will recommend this restaurant to all traveling to Whitefish.
