We ate breakfast and dinner here. The Huckleberry pancakes were some of the best pancakes I've ever eaten. For dinner I had the Idaho Rainbow Trout. It was pan fried in cornmeal and was delectable. Highly recommend the trout.

One of the nicest restaurants in Whitefish, but be prepared to pay a high price for dinner. The breakfast is consistently good and the lounge is nice for a cocktail and live music. Be sure to make a reservation!

Had an extended lunch inside watching football. Elk meatballs were just okay but chicken ribs were excellent. The burger was okay but the chicken sandwich was great. Nice wine list that was reasonably priced. Service was slow and unattentive. Overall, would definitely recommend for lunch.

This restaurant has nice service and a nice view, however we were not impressed with the food that was very mediocre or the flies in the dining room. There are other better restaurants in the area.
