Shared some appetizers with friends and enjoyed a delicious local beer. The Mac 'n Cheese with prosciutto is amazing! The mushrooms, pistachio hummus, & watermelon salad. Sat in the bar on a busy night, no wait.

We came to celebrate my birthday and we had a great evening. We started with some beers and delicious starters at the Lounge. Afterwards we had dinner at the Dining Room. The salads were very tasty and the steaks awesome. We highly recommend this place.

We go to the Tupelo Grille every time we're in Whitefish. They've really grown, and it's easy to see why. I stick with the cajun sampler which was top notch. My wife and daughter both had the fish and loved it. Years ago we had...More

I don't think so. But you can call and leave a message if the restaurant isn't open. They'll call you back immediately.
