We love having dinner here! The food is always good, the staff friendly. The brunch on weekends is also so good. They also always have local beers on tap to choose from. Those who drink wine seem to enjoy their wine list. Love this place!

I went to this restaurant based upon the high ratings received here on tripadvisor, but our experience was very disappointing. The waiter was extremely short with us and uninformed...the food was not as represented ...the pumpkin 'soup' is more like a stew and wasn't flavorful....More

We are Flathead Valley locals who have driven by this gem for years without noticing it. You do need to drive off the main #2 highway onto Nucleus Ave to find it....that turn is at the stop light near the Station 8 shop and floral...More

It's so good that I'd split the group in half and take two tables, and pay two checks. There's always a way!!! It's worth it!!! Can't wait to get back there in September!!
