Lovely atmosphere, terrific menu. We had Pho, a Reuben sandwich, and a small seafood plate that had the most perfectly cooked not-quite-hard egg on it. We loved everything and will return for sure. Service was friendly and polite. The Firebrand just keeps getting better and better.

Great downtown location for walking around then, stopping in for a drink and a bite. The dining room is a bit sparce and seems to be more of a lounge and bar that serves food and, not a restaurant. That being said, the food was ecclectic. Everything we had was very good! Nice use of local ingredients.

Nobody greeted us so we had no direction, we were looking for a restaurant and actually it was the lounge we made reservations for which were not needed....service was ok, nothing special, food was ok, not hot cool and mediocre. ..the lounge itself was clean and pleasant, not alot of room but nobody around so it was quiet....

Food was ok, nothing special. Service needs some work. It is a seat yourself restaurant, which is fine, but we walked by 2 servers, front desk clerk, a barista, and bartender, not a single one gave us any kind of acknowledgement. They need to remember they are in the hospitality business.

This is THE venue not to miss in Whitefish! And if you are lucky enough to be there with local live music, you are in for a treat. The chef is creative, the well drinks feature strong brands, the beer selection is on point, the staff is friendly. We love the Firebrand and look forward to being back soon.

What began as a shared birthdate with a friend and a gift certificate we won, has now turned into our annual celebratory tradition. It is fun to try different and tasty cuisine we love that our spouses would not care for! It's our yearly night of girls fun!
Staff has always been wonderful and we don't mind the free birthday dessert!

Had lunch with a friend at the Firebrand the other day. VERY small limited lunch menu. My chicken sandwich was just OK. Seated by the prime windows that overlook a most unattractive parking lot. Will not go back for lunch again.

I was somewhat disappointed in the service. It took a very long time to get our food and drink orders. My husband had to go to the bar to get my wine which was sitting in the service area for a long time. There was inky one server on which was definitely the issue. The restaurant/ lounge was very busy (it was a Saturday right before New Year's which is the busiest time of the season in Whitefish) so they could have had more servers on to help.

We come to the Firebrand often for dinner before shows and concerts. It is an elegant, quiet place and great for people watching - both in the hotel lobby and on the street.

We went there for our anniversary dinner and was surprised to find there are only 2 dinner items on the entire menu. The rest was "sharable" bar food. We left and went someplace else for a nice dinner.

Don't go with expectations, there is no hostess to seat you, and you will be eating dinner in a open hotel lobby, not a restaurant.

Intrigued by the tapas menu, we dined at The Firebrand Lounge on a balmy Friday evening. We basked in the beautiful weather, enjoyed music attuned to our ears—not so loud you can’t converse.

Our server,Johnna, was enthusiastic, exemplary, and accommodating to all my (many) food allergies.

We enjoyed a bottle of Decoy 2015 Zinfandel and shared the
Crab stuffed peppadew, Togarashi crusted ahi, Crispy calamari, Pork potstickers,
Duck sliders, and Wagyu sliders.

Each plate was creative in tastes and presentation. We highly recommend this fun dining spot and suggest you request Johnna as your server.

Tapas style menu. No liquor license, so only beer and wine available. Overall, good food, but small portions being tapas style and lack of ability to order mixed drinks, bourbon or other cocktails sent us elsewhere after dinner.

Great atmosphere! The food and service were fantastic. Portions were small. It would be great to have a few more "Meal" options. It was not busy when we arrived but with self service seating, I am not sure how it would have worked when we had a reservation if all of the tables were full?

My husband and I took his mother to Firebrand for dinner for mother’s day, and she is pretty picky about her food! She loved every single bite and wants to go back as soon as possible! Everything about our dining experience was perfect — the waitress, the food, everything was enjoyable!

This is our favourite place in town. For a night away at the hotel or just a wonderful meal or glass of wine, ambience is cozy and comfortable while remaining posh, food and wine are exquisite, we love it!!

My sister and I have been there twice for dinner, and were completely satisfied both times.
Love the old Barnwood Decore and the general arrangement of the bar and dining area. Great food, good wine, and reasonable prices.

My sister and I like to try all the different restaurant in the valley. We finally made it to the Firebrand and were not disappointed. On a side note, my daughter and her husband did the barnwood interior. They are the owners of MKM Reclaimed and she highly recommended we try it.

We spent our last night on a trip to Glacier at the Firebrand and ate in the Lounge. The "meals" are more tapas style, and the two of us shared five different orders. That was way too much food for retired seniors and the problem was, everything was so delicious that we ate it all. I was especially impressed by the gnocchi (Yes, the gnocchi! It was incredible!) The chef's special dish that evening was scallops on Forbidden Rice, and that also was fantastic. This chef is very creative and knows exactly which combinations will go best together. The service was also very good, which we expected--two nights in this hotel and everyone from the front desk to housekeeping was super friendly and considerate. Our entire trip was amazing, but we both agreed that when we return, we will stay the entire time at the Firebrand and eat there whenever possible.
