This is some of the best food you will find anywhere! There is an open patio in the summer and live music on the weekends. It a great place to meet friends for dinner and, while you're at it, venture down Electric Avenue to the little unique shops for a treasure or two. It's a small little village with flair.

I've never had a bad meal here and the service is friendly and prompt. The raspberry vinaigrette dressing is to die for--best ever. The huckleberry is darn good too. I'm hoping they will bottle it again for retail sale.

We ate here recently on a weeknight. As it is winter and the off season, we happened to be the only occupied table in the restaurant. The decor was nice and quaint. One of our party ordered salmon, the other duck. The other two diners ordered "black and white tornedos", two sirloins topped with bernaise sauce and peppercorn. Traditionally the tornedos are supposed to be filet mignons. Both diners said their steaks were so tough and hard to cut that we ended up sending both of them back. At $26 a plate, one should be completely satisfied with their meal. We ended up ordering other suitable entrees for them. The issue is although the server was willing to exchange the meal, at no time did either one of the owners, the Keenans come over to the table and apologize for the inferior quality of meat or our inconvenience, even though she was sitting at the hostess stand and observing the whole thing. No offer of comping our wine or perhaps offering a free dessert. With this disinterest while the restaurant was completely empty we will not be bringing guests back to this restaurant. Spending $160 on a dinner table and not even being comped for some of it or offered an apology by the disinterested owner is unacceptable nowadays. There are too many other restaurants that would have done the right thing and made things right with the guest.

We eat here every year when family comes home for a visit and before going to the play. They are always packed on play night at Bigfork Summer Theatre but manage to get everyone in and out in time for the play.

I have tried several entrees and appetizers through the years - but we always order the deep-fried artichokes and Chinese tootsie rolls - these are our favorites! My daughter even orders the artichokes as her entree (she's a vegetarian). The cajun shrimp pasta and beef tournedos are my two favorite entrees, but really we come for the artichokes! I have never had a disappointing meal.

Only complaint? Because it gets packed in the restaurant (and it's August!) it can get very warm in there. A few fans or air conditioning would greatly help. Also - bring back the huckleberry daquiris! That was one of our favorites and they haven't had them the last few years.

We had dinner here when we were in Bigfork recently. The service as good the food was very good, but not exceptional. The atmosphere is nice. You will get a nice traditional dinner or lunch here. It is a local favorite!
