The caliber of food at this joint was spectacular! Our salads were so fresh and crunchy, and our pasta was deeply cheesy. Would have eaten here every day had we found it early enough in our visit!

I was expecting a pleasant experience based on prior reviews.
Our experience started with being brought to our table. When the hostess arrived at the table... She dropped the menus... Then picked up the menus from the floor and then set the dirty menus on the preset table dishes.

Next, we had been recommended to try their fish and chips and also their wok dishes.
Turns out that neither of these were available. The waitress said that they only had 1 chef that could cook these dishes and that he was not there

We then ordered a number of dishes that were mediocre at best. Apparently there were issues with prep timing because a couple of dishes were somewhat cold.

Finally, when we were presented the bill, they added a non disclosed 20% gratuity.

could have been that they were just having a bad day. But, I will not return.

I regret that your arrival was marred by the dropped menus! We will not let that happen again! However, beyond that, your party was very vocal (to the point of making the service person uncomfortable) about not having the desired dishes available, and we wondered if you should/would stay for dinner. Stay you did. You ordered, and ate everything. Nothing was turned away, and your meal was NOT cold. Remember this about restaurants, when it starts with your kind of unpleasantness, we keep an eye on you throughout the meal to make sure the rest goes as well as possible. Further, our menu clearly states the gratuity policy. NOTHING is hidden or not disclosed. I consider your review borderline fraudulent, and this type of approach (instead of while you were here) to be cowardly at best.

This was our first real visit to Whitefish and we were only here for a few days so hoped to pick the best place to eat for our dinner out! We were lead to the right place!! From the moment we walked in the door, the beautiful decor and ambiance and lighting were so welcoming. Then the owner, Sandy, was very warm and welcoming and took us to a beautiful table by the window. Our server was very good and the whole meal was so incredible it's hard to find words for it. Perfectly done steak for my husband and I had a salmon special with a huckleberry sauce that was to die for!! Everything, including the people were outstanding. We highly recommend this, in fact if you are in Whitefish for only a day, make sure you come here!! We will be back for sure.

McGarry's was recommended by a friend of ours who is a chef as a place to go for our anniversary. The service was poor. our waitress forgot the salad , we had to ask for bread and she did not check on our meal until we were done. We ordered steaks medium rare and they were medium to well done. Would not go back.
