We loved our experience here! The only thing we'd change is the slightly confusing menu. I ordered a dish with quail, pear micro salad and yams that was on the "appetizer" list when it was actually a meal. I'd consider it more of a "small plates" dish. Regardless, it was absolutely delicious. I'd never had quail before and it wasn't... More

We were visiting my daughter and son-in-law in Columbia Falls and dined at the Three Forks Grille. What a surprise! Small town, great food! The Grilled Montana Pork Chop was to die for! Excellent flavored meat with great sauce and vegetables. The Bison Burger was also very good. What made the meal even better was the Home Made Gnocci which... More

Hidden gem, with great food. Pork chop was huge and excellent sauce. Gnocchi, fresh and flavorful. Polenta and bacon appetizer very good. Highly recommend eating here.

We have been here several times and it never disappoints. The specials are always special and you can never go wrong with the regular menu.

Three Forks Grille is fast becoming our favorite restaurant in the Kalispell/Whitefish/Columbiai Falls area...and that is saying something. This area has some great restaurants! Be sure to try their gnocchi appetizer. It is outstanding and large enough to share. I particularly like their pork chop and my wife loves the trout. Did I mention an excellent wine list! We've been... More

The place was packed and reseved out the whole evening ( this was a Monday ) exept for one space at the... More

Nice restaurant; kind of unique with the upper and lower dining areas. Nice atmosphere. Food was quite good, a delightfully eclectic menu; very good variety of choices. Not a full bar available for those who are interested, but a decent selection of beer and wine. Service was great; very friendly and helpful people. Would definitely return (have visited a two...

Very attractive restaurant with a slightly upscale air about it. Very nice waitstaff. But the food...Awful!!! I had something called 'Cioppino'. It was described as a dish containing several seafood items w/a 'tomato saffron broth'. Sadly it turned out to be a thick tomato sauce/soups smothering dreadful rubbery rings of over cooked calamari, stringy pieces of tasteless Alaskan King Crab,... More

We visited a few times over the summer with out of town guests and had amazingly good food, but dinner last night was a disappointment. Bright spot was our waiter, the wine and deddert. Lasagna and Cioppino were very bland. Cioppino was lacking actual seafood but had an abundance of potatoes. Flat iron steak nothing to write home about either.... More

Our server Jessica was friendly, attentive, and top-notch. We shared the house made gnocchi which was to-die-for: soft pillows of gnocchi in a beautiful (but not overly rich) cream sauce. Both the NY strip and Tuscan flat iron steaks were delicious preparations. We were pleasantly surprised that the restaurant was serving Nero d'Avola (a Sicilian red wine) by the glass... More
