Delicious food, great service, a fabulous wine list, and reasonable prices. Everyone in my party of five enjoyed all aspects of their dining experience here. I'll definitely come back and recommend this place to others.

Great room terrific menu that was well prepared..only thing that kept it from 5star excellent.. the waiter. Slightly rude and less attentive to our party than I would deem acceptable. Still worth a visit.

This tapas restaurant was pretty good. We enjoyed the coconut shrimp and friend plantain dish and everyone raved about the elk meatloaf sliders. The mussels were alright but very small. The menu had few healthy options - most seemed deep-friend and/or battered or greasy. The staff were amazing, though, getting in orders and keeping drinks filled despite the busy evening.... More

Again a confusing visit. Service was excellent, beyond excellent. Food was just so-so, tired and didn't add up. For this experience the value was fair to middlin'. The bar and lounge seems to be the draw, not the food. Too bad, it was the best that Whitefish had to offer.

This is a must everytime we are in Whitefish. The bar is also bustling and the staff is very service oriented. We fine eating at the bar to be relaxing and they have both a bar menu and a dinner menu available.

Such an amazing early Valentines dinner! Grateful for the many delicious gluten free options. Hubby loved shrimp & grits and I loved my unique vegetarian root vegetable dish - Will be back!

Enjoy yourself to the last minute. Great food and service. Great draft selections. Convenient to all downtown attractions, including the thrift stores run by Flathead Industries and by the Soroptimists. Make reservations. Do not count on a walk-in working very well.

We arrived without a reservation on a Sat. night and were seated within an hour. Had cocktails and a delicious appetizer... shrimp/crawdad cakes. Waitress turned me on to a nice Canadian whiskey, Pendleton, since my usual was unavailable. Dinner was delicious... hubby had the shrimp and grits and I had the Cajun combo... even the bread was outstanding and we... More
