A great place to kicK back, enjoy the town, and have good conversation with locals. If you like beer, they have many varieties, or you can have a fresh brewed root beer that is excellent. Really enjoyed this place and will return.

They of course have their beer on tap to taste but the nice surprise was their selections for lunch. The food was good and so was the service. Also the restaurant has great views of downtown Whitefish and Big Mountain.

Good downtown location in Whitefish, great views of Big Mountain from upstairs bar and small outdoor deck. Our group tried 4 different sandwiches, all a hit.
