This place had been recommended to us as we were leaving the area to head back to Spokane. We just planned to have a beverage, but when we viewed some of the dishes coming out of the kitchen, we had to try something. The two of us shared a Cobb Salad with their house huckleberry vinegarette dressing with a bowl... More

We sat at the bar. I ordered a flight of 8 beers. The one beer that really stood out above all the rest was the IPA. Outside of the flight, I tried a Scotch Ale and an IIPA. Both were excellent. Also had a half rack of ribs (came with fries). The ribs were absolutely tender and tasty. Great building,... More

Recently dined in lovely Lakeside @ the Tamarack Brewery. The portions were plentiful and tasty. The service was quick and very friendly. We dined on a Saturday eve, the restaurant was very full. The hostess was very gracious and seated the four of us quickly .

I love this place! The food is amazing and the beer is better. They also brew great root beer for those that don't like beer. A large party can split the enormous nachos (feeds a small army!). The sandwiches are delicious and everything is really fresh.

We wandered in here for lunch and beers after the Dragon Boat festival. The place was pretty busy but we were seated pretty quickly. We ordered food and beers and we enjoyed their beer selection. My boyfriend got the basket of cheese fries and I ordered the pizza rolls. The food was hot and good (and large portions... we ended... More

We had a great meal here after travelling all day. The ribs were good and the French dip sandwich lasted for two meals. The beer was very good (and you can get some in cans or growlers). Our server brought us a couple of beer samples and was very accommodating to our several requests.

We stopped here for a late lunch on our way to Bigfork. Not many diners inside or outside. We were seated right away on the patio, which was a nice setting for an afternoon meal. Once seated, it took about 10 minutes to get water and eating utensils. We ordered beer, which was tasty and refreshing, and our salads. The... More

I went here my last night in Montana, I wish I had found it sooner. evidently Tuesday is trivia night. Everyone did and does get involved, makes for a great way to get to know neighbors and other people sitting close by. We went just for drinks and finger food, and had a great time.

Went here for dinner at the advice of a nearby hotel receptionist - great choice. Terrific food. Great portions. Had the pork BBQ sandwich and the beer bread appetizer with the fruit crumble for dessert. Highly recommended. Large of selection of beers to go along. The service was exceptional. Too bad I'm flying home from Montana or I'd be back... More
