Very nice place, small dinner menu, and it was hard to find something that I'd like, and the prices are pretty high for smaller portions. Overall the food and service was good but I probably wouldn't go back.

Lovely place for New Year’s Eve dinner! We had the bison short ribs and loved them - if present on the menu, a must get! Everything else was equally as good too. Would certainly return if in Columbia Falls again!

We went twice while vacationing here. We had the quail and pork the first night and the risotto and bison the 2nd time we went. Super pleased both times. The staff was friendly and all the ingredients were local. Very, very good!

I couldn't believe, being so close to Whitefish, MT, that we couldn't actually find whitefish being served on local menus! Let alone other western fare, like elk and bison.... But we happened upon the Three Forks and hit the jackpot. My husband had the whitefish...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!!
