This restaurant is very casual. Meals are served on paper plates and the picnic tables outside are similar to the furniture inside. The food is good but not outstanding. The presentation is, well - not great. And for the price this is all okay as long as your expectations are in line with what you will get, you'll be fine.
We only went once and that was enough. It was okay but didn't leave us wanting to eat there repeatedly.
The service on the otherhand was outstanding! Our server was pleasant and unflappably handled the orders for the entire restaurant by herself, for the whole hour and a half we were there. We tipped extra large just for the show. She was amazing.

Outdoor dining at a picnic table, live guitar duo and amazing BBQ!

This place is right on the main street near the Lodge and is a must destination for anyone visiting Whitefish!

Good selection of local craft beer, fabulous BBQ and sides all while sitting outside on a warm summer evening. It doesn't get better.

Great, friendly staff.

Outstanding sauce and fall-off-the-bone ribs! Extremely pleasant staff ( we met two of them) While the outdoor eating area we chose to sit in was not too far off the road (about 100'), our dinner was was very quiet and tranquil. I consider myself a person who knows good baby back and St, Louis rubs. I had portions of both the night I ate here and thought they were excellent. A very quiet, unassuming pub-like atmosphere. Definitely worth the visit.

We had lunch here and it was ok. Nothing to really complain not brag about. Pulled pork was pretty flavorless and definitely need sauce since it was so dry. Atmosphere is nice and casual. Service was very good. I guess my only advice is regarding the kids menu. Would have liked to see grilled cheese and maybe kids sized hamburgers.

What an amazingly delicious meal we had at this restaurant. Stumbled across it by accident, thank goodness. We were a group of 4 adults, 5 teenagers and a 9 year old, that stopped here on July 4th of all days. Our kids wanted to stop there everyday while on our vacation in the area.
