Go for the beer and the bar scene. There are friendly faces and a large patio. However the food is about what you'd expect for a bar like that. Nothing I ate was house made, French fries came from a package and so did the...More

We were charmed by all the rail-related artifacts at this restaurant, and so we decided to have lunch there. It's a big space, with a bar area, restaurant area, and also dance floor when things get rolling. We ordered at the counter, and staff brought...More

Stopped in driving through. Both IPAs I had we're quite good. We got a quick, unscheduled tour of brewery. We really appreciated the bartender doing that!

We visited with our two kids and met another family with two kids. We all enjoyed our beers and the food was very tasty. There isn't great seating for families and you have to go to the counter to place your order for everything. Not...More

We were lucky to get a seat on the shady upstairs deck on a sunny Whitefish afternoon. Friendly pours downstairs but we brought them up.... We tried Wheatfish, Alpenglow, Going to The Sun and Driftboat. Very friendly upstairs service too. Really large funky industrial seating...More

Two guys walk into a brewery with a powerful thirst for that local brew. With so many options of beer - all made in house - on tap, it's a tough decision. Luckily at Great Northern it's a choice you don't have to make since...More
