Has outstanding food and a great variety from steak to seafood to pasta. The wait staff was very responsive. It is a little pricey, but the food is worth it. Located right in the downtown area in Whitefish MT.

We had a great dinner here and the service was excellent. The layout is cozy but not crowded. Great selection of craft beers and a wonderful selection of wines.

Loved this little place when we passed through Whitefish. Service was warm and friendly and the food was great. Cosy and comfortable inside, with sofas to relax on. Live music was played, and the band played me a song especially :)

Great food. Bacon wrapped dates were great. The bartender made a killer old-fashion he also made a great cucumber martini or something crazy like that. Atmosphere was really nice. The bar had live music. They were sold out for the night when we got there...More
