“Love this restaurant in Whitefish”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

We have eaten here a few times, most recently on Saturday. The food is always delicious. It was very busy Saturday night but the service was still great. I had the seared tuna special which was amazing. The normal menu items are very good as well which we have enjoyed on past visits.

“Tupelo for a bite”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

Hit this after trying a brew sampler at the Great Northern Brewing Company across the street. I had called in a reservation the night before and low and behold when I walked over to see if we could get in a little sooner, they had no listing of our reservation. They did accommodate us however. The shrimp and grits were excellent according to my wife. I found the duck confit leg/thigh to be dry, tough, stringy and not really flavorful except for the accompanying white bean cassoulete and sausage. The bread pudding was very good. The service was fine. Families with kids around us for an upscale price.

We visited Whitefish in September 2013. It was one of the top three meals we've ever had. Two couples that travel together slot and usually talk nonstop--I still recall the amount of silence during our meal because it was soooo good! Two of us had the bacon wrapped tenderloin which was phenomenal. One had the chicken and dumplings which she said was great. My husband had the scallops linguine and he is still talking about it. Highly recommend the Tupelo Grille if your travels take you to Whitefish. Very cool town.

“Our favorite in Whitefish”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

We hit Tupelo every year we visit Whitefish to ski. Alwyas great food and service. The chicken and dumplings are excellent. The portion has gotten smaller and its a thigh now vs a breast. Still tasty but not as outsanding as it once was.

“Little bayou at the Fish”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

All the food here is really good! Best Shrimp & Grits and usually any special. Appetizer you have to try the catfish. Our least favorite dish is the Pasta a little to spicy. If you have room for Dessert hit the bread Pudding!
