We were staying at a B&B in Kalispell and the owners recommended the Tupelo Grille for dinner in Whitefish. We were definitely not disappointed! My husband enjoyed the elk meatloaf and I had a small salad with tenderloin tips. The favorite part of our dining experience here was definitely dessert time -- the BREAD PUDDING IS AMAZING! You cannot leave... More

Visited Tupelo for a second time this year and absolutely enjoyed every bite. The Halibut feature was mouth watering and the staff were friendly and polite. We will definitely be back.

While in Whitefish, Montana we came across the Tupelo Grille. What a gem! As soon as you open the door, you can tell the place is special. The artwork on the walls, the dark wood, the extensive bar all boast of a truly unique experience and the food did not disappoint. For apps, we ordered the Ahi Poke with Asian... More

The Tupelo has great atmosphere, friendly staff and the food is amazing whatever you choose. A favorite of ours is Shrimp and Grits but everything is delicious and beautifully presented.

Loved the lively-but-not-noisy atmosphere, spacious and interesting interior, friendly staff - and that was before tasting the food! Amazing, fresh, tasty, well-timed... Wish I was staying in town longer. I'd be back every night.

We dined here on a Monday night and the restaurant was quite busy at our 7:30 reservation time. Décor is cute and tables are well spaced. My wife had the Coconut Shrimp that looked like a pre breaded frozen product. She said they were OK but not great. I had the Duck Confit and Waffle appetizer. The duck leg was... More

Very well prepared food, nice waitstaff who are knowledgeable about their food. Three different dining areas - one with live music, one in proximity of second bar and third in quieter area.

On weekends, reservations are recommended. We showed up Friday afternoon when they opened at 4 PM and got one of the last available reservations for that evening. Crusty French bread is served with the meals. We decided to split the Zydeco Combo (crawfish-shrimp cake, fried catfish, crawfish etoufee, and shrimp-chicken-pork-Andouille jambalaya). We were served 3 tender-sized pieces of fried catfish... More

Tupelo was one of a handful of restaurants recommended to us by knowledgeable locals. It's a busy place and serves quite a wide range of food. I had a very tender eye fillet steak, which came with some nice sides. My partner had the lamb rack which was a little over-cooked but very tasty in any case. There's a good... More

Always on my agenda when I visit Whitefish. I've never been disappointed with any meal in the 10 years I have been doing business in Whitefish.
