One of the very best restaurants ( if not the best) the flathead valley has to offer. Been here many times; have never been disappointed. Wonderful food, inviting atmosphere, superb service, yet still provides a friendly, homey environment. Absolutely stellar in every way!

Good traditional atmosphere. I love a restaurant with low decibels! Everything was fantastic, including the vegetables (which are usually just an afterthought). Good steak, good wine, good everything!!!

My favorite place to eat for fine dining. The food is always excellent. I always get the halibut. Prices are on the high end, but worth it for a good meal.
