If you want pretty darn good food while you watch sports on television, the Great Northern Bar and Grill in Whitefish, Montana is the place to go. It is both a local hangout and a destination for outsiders, particularly visiting Canadians. On game-day you can be certain you can see YOUR game there as they have many, many televisions and no game is out of reach.

The Food: Above average for bar good. They have an excellent Sirloin Steak for $12-14 that comes with all the trimmings, including great baked potatoes. Burgers are large and tasty and come in all varieties. The soups are made on the spot and are very, very good with a different feature everyday. On Sundays during football games they have the best Biscuits and Gravy around.

The Northern is an everyday establishment and provides live entertainment most nights and is raucous in a good way on the weekends. The employ many very good Rock and Roll and Country Bands and it is great fun for all. Be prepared for big crowds on the dance floor.

Funky, friendly place with lots of great beer and food options. Staff are helpful. A nice place to unwind - and there's a patio, too.

The Great Northern is one of our favorite places anywhere in Montana. We have a condo on the ski hill so visit it often. The staff greet us by name and practically have our drinks ready by the time we sit down. People are mostly tourists/skiers but we have made many friends among the locals here. The food is very good but not the best in town. Still it is handy and no complaints.
During the carnival they have the best Jazz Band ever & it starts in the afternoon!

We have visited this bar every time we go to Whitefish (which is not really that often). We have not eaten there in recent visits but if you want a great bar with music, cheap drinks and friendly, local customers, this is your place.

The Great Northern Bar and Grill is a great place to meet a friend or celebrate a large event. Last week we had a gathering for our colleagues and the food was delicious! The service is always friendly and the prices are great. We are looking forward to planning our next event there!
