We stopped in for lunch. I had the Greek gyro and the wife had a salad. Both were very good and filling. We liked it so well we returned 2 days later for lunch. After 1:00 it is not so busy. Wait staff is superb!!

A nice casual place to get some really good American food while in Whitefish. There are a ton of choices on restaurants in Whitefish and this place should be high on that list. Service was good. Food was great and value was good.
