We recently had the good fortune of eating at the Tupelo grill and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The shrimp and grits and steak frites were amazing, the meatloaf and Zydeco combo were also delicious. The service could not have been better and for dessert we had the bread pudding which I am still dreaming about. This restaurant is not to... More

We were in Whitefish, a most charming ski town outside Glacier park. I read good reviews on this place to decided to check it out. It was SO good we decided to go back for our final dinner in Whitefish. It had cajun items which initially caught me eye, but after hearing about the fresh fish specials, I opted for... More

Brilliant experience from start to finish. The bar is gorgeous! A unique and gorgeous place to have a drink before dinner. In the restaurant, we had a quiet table for two in the back where we could oversee everything. I thoroughly enjoyed their spin on chicken and dumplings (almost licked the plate), and my husband ordered the special of the... More

Visiting Whitefish for a concert--we chose this place based on reviews and proximity to concert venue. Our server was top notch--attentive and had great advice for local points of interest. Food and drinks were excellent and everyone working there seemed to be enjoying themselves--we would definitely return.

I came in late on a Tuesday with no reservation, solo. They had no problem seating me as the dinner rush was subsiding. Yet it took 40 minutes to serve up their signature shrimp and grits, which turned out to be WAY oversalted, though the layering of flavours was quite interesting-just drowned out... While waiting, they delivered a small loaf... More

Recommended by multiple locals, so our foursome headed there for dinner (get a reservation). Everybody agreed that the meal was fantastic. Appetizers were maybe the best: Duck and waffle (who woulda thought?) with duck confit, buttermilk-bacon waffle, maple butter, pomegranate gastric was amazing and the Ahi poke, made of ahi tuna, asian cabbage slaw, spicy peanut dressing, avocado mousse &...

Having owned a condo n Big Mtn for 24 yrs we have tried every restaurant in Whitefish & area more than once. More importantly we are asked constantly for recommendations! We are Canadians & right now our $ is low so for every bill we pay we have to add 40 cents. So it was with some hesitation we decided... More
