We ordered Nachos after a day of shopping and easily had left overs even splitting it between 4-5 people. They were delicious and the available pub fare was plentiful.
The bar service had much to be desired. There was one bartender on staff for a Saturday afternoon with a very busy bar. There was no table service so you had to go up and get your own drinks. It took 20 minutes to be served which was definitely not what was expected for a Saturday afternoon.

We returned later that night and experienced a very busy night life with an incredible band. The crowd was diverse. Don't miss out on this place for a taste of the Whitefish party crowd!

Well, its a rowdy and fun nightspot so I can;t really fault it for not having five star food. Or even two star food. Just sayin, go there for the fun and drink. Maybe eat something somewhere else unless you just love the typical greasy burger and fries stuff.

This s a busy friendly locals bar with $1 PBR's, a few pool tables, and reasonably good ping pong table. Live music most nights and an out-the-door-and-into-the-street burger menu. We liked it a lot.

The best bar around. Fun atmosphere and always pretty busy. Prices are reasonable and the bartenders are great. They get some good bands in on the weekends. The food at the grill is real good. Lunch specials are great and if you like good fajitas, they have great ones on fajita night (Wednesdays).

The GN is a cool spot to grab lunch in Whitefish. Great atmosphere and a hometown feel. Pub style food ordered in the back with daily specials, all of which are good. Resonably priced.
