“Juke box madness”
Review of The Garden Bar

We have been eating drinking dancing at the Garden Bar for 30 years, always predictable and fun. The new juke box costs $1.00 per song with other options to pull extra money from you as well. Very sad that the owners of the Garden have stooped to this desperate new low. I hope the Garden hasn't joined the race to the bottom with their other services as well. Funny how something this tiny can make you so angry.

The name sounds like a quaint little place to get a glass of wine, however the Garden Bar is more of an "old time saloon" with a long bar and some local musicians in the evening.

In addition to indoor seating, they also have a large patio out back full of nostalgic Bigfork business signs--a nice touch.

We appreciated that it was one of the few places open after the Bigfork Summer Playhouse productions, were we could grab a cocktail. We even met some of the cast members from that evening's performance :)

We went to The Garden Bar twice. Both times the staff acted as if they could care less if you were there, or not. They have a good selection of beer on tap, but NO wine. The burgers are basic, nachos and hot wings are pretty good. You walk up to a window and they take your food order, then bring it out. You walk up to the bar and get your own drinks. We bussed our own table before we sat down. The best thing was the sign above the kitchen window..."Hippies Use Side Door".

The Garden Bar in Bigfork is where the friendly action is after the shows at the Bigfork Summer Playhouse. For years the Garden has been a favorite for a good hamburger and a cold glass of beer. You have a choice of sitting indoors in the Winter, and outside in the Summer. There is always something fun happening at the Garden.

nice little bar in bigfork. When looking for a place to drink there are really only a few options. In the summer you should check out the garden bar, they have seating in the back and live music during the weekends. Drinks are cheap, music is good, beer is good & you are guaranteed to see some 'eclectic' folk.
