We're big believers in what we eat matters, which is why we make everything from scratch daily and use locally-sourced ingredients whenever possible.

Our goal is to provide the finest dishes, drinks and service in the Flathead Valley and we hope you will join us.

Specials were outstanding. Scallops were a little fishy which is surprising because normally there are outstanding as well.

Quite expensive. However, we would return and it is one of only several in the area where you can experience "fine dining".

The last time we ate at Beargrass Bistro it was exceptional, so much that is all we talked about was going back. It was above and beyond what we have in the valley.
This time it was like so many other restaurants, it was good, okay, but not to the cal1ber it was, and certainly not for their prices, disappointing. I will probably try it again to see if it was just a bad night, new chef, etc.

We were so excited to try this restaurant. The cauliflower appetizer and bread were amazing. The hostess also was very accommodating when my hailbut came and was very fishey. My meal was comped but I was sad as I love halibut. The setting was delightful and we would go back
I would also say wines by the glass were very expensive so I could only have one. Maybe that is a good thing. Check it out and hopefully your experience will not be a fishey one!

We visited on Saturday evening and we were so pleased with our waiter and his recommendations! It was our first visit, and we will not hesitate to return. Wagyu Tomohawk was cooked to perfection and served beautifully. Great wine selections. A perfect evening. A+

We were very disappointed with the filets as they were tough and overcooked. Our waitress was very slow and kept apologizing all evening for everything. The appetizer was good. The Worst part of the evening was when we were billed 65.00 each for the filets when the menu said 39....when we told the waitress after waiting for her to come back she fixed but only fixed 1 of the prices. After waiting longer for her to come back she then takes our credit card and bills wrong price then voids it and brings back a third bill! What a nightmare & at that price point we expected so much more. A fine restaurant needs to have top notch waitresses.

We apologize for the inconvenience. Normally our meat is our star attraction so I’m not sure what went wrong there but there is no excuse for the service. That will be dealt with ASAP.

Crispy Duck was an evening special. The chef is especially good with duck and didn’t disappoint. Green Gazpacho appetizer was yummy. Burrata in beet salad divine.
Standby favorite was a huge portion of perfect Schnitzel.

We were running a little late so we called ahead and they held our reservation (15min).
Service was excellent and food was delicious. Both the hostess and server wished us a happy anniversary, which was a nice personal touch. We’ll definitely be back!

One of my favorite restaurant hands down! The service is always amazing and they have great menu. The halibut is my favorite dish so far... But don't overlook the meatloaf.

Beargrass Bistro was a real delight. We eat on the patio and it’s a nice setting. The Wiener schnitzel is excellent. They make it with pork although I would like to see it offered with veal as well.

If you are looking for an overpriced And underwhelming restaurant catering to the vacation home owners, you’re in luck! Our AIRBnb host recommended this restaurant and much to our surprise the food was extremely overpriced with customer service that was more bar-like. For entrees alone that started around $30 a plate (not including any sides at all) we were expecting the quality and service to match like other restaurants we have been to in that price range. Clearly they are taking advantage of the vacation home money and sacrificing what matters.
Disappointed Montana foodie.

We have eaten here many times over the past few years, and the food is always great. The kitchen does tend to get backed up, we waited a very long time last visit, with no compensation.

We are so fortunate to have a gem like Beargrass Bistro in Lakeside. Every bit as good as anyplace that Whitefish has to offer without the drive. The lobster canneloni appetizer was divine! Next time I will order two and make it my entree.

We visited Beargrass Bistro on the last night of our week-long vacation to Lakeside and wish we had found it earlier! The food was superbly prepared, the service excellent, and the patio perfect for enjoying a beautiful evening. We will definitely be back during future visits to Flathead.

I had the 16oz Wagyu New York steak. I knew it would be amazing and didnt really care about the side dishes. Honestly, poached potatoes wouldnt be anything write home about.. But OMG those potatoes gave the steak a run for its money!! A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!! The best potato Ive ever had in my life. And the steak was a perfect medium rare, with a truffle butter that slowly melted over the perfectly charred and seasoned steak. If I could give 10 stars I would. Thank you Chef Cece
