    Always great cocktails (margaritas and mojitos are our faves) and delicious food. Loved the special tortilla soup and the tacos and crab cakes for lunch.

    Great local eclectic place! The executive chef Vern sources locally based food and puts a complementing yet northwest Montana presentation to it! Clint makes exquisite banging drinks along with Anthony who makes sure you have excellent personable service!! You will leave with an uplifted soul, healthier body, and uplifted spirit at the Whitefish Distillery!

    Another amazing dinner @ Whitefish Distillery for us! I am gluten free & dairy free but they had a great Thai seafood option that was outstanding. As usual, our cocktails were delicious & fun. We love the vintage vibe & the great dining experience we have each time we’re there😀

    This is our second time there this week. It’s a hidden gem that is cozy, the service is wonderful and the food is excellent . The menu isn’t extensive, but to me that’s a good thing. We’ve had the the Brussels twice, likely the best anywhere. One of our party had the crab cakes twice as they loved them so much. I had the Thai fish curry the first time, and some of the special Colombian offerings the second. Their “fizzes” are definitely something to try. I can’t say enough about how good this restaurant is. We’ll definitely be back next year!

    We had our three year anniversary here and it was fantastic! Drinks were some of the best I have ever had and the tomahawk steak we shared was incredible. Staff was very nice and inviting as well. Interior is small and intimate, very quiet place to our surprise. We will definitely be back here soon! Highly recommend GREAT mocktails as well! Service was that of fine dining from our experience, love the environment, dessert was awesome, and food was top tier as it was prominent that all was made fresh. Absolutely fantastic!

    This was the most fantastic meal we've had in years. The drinks, the service, the ambiance, AND the food. Best dining experience in the valley, hands down. Can't wait to take everyone we know back to this place. You're doing a stellar job guys - I've missed these next level dinners since we became saturated with mediocre restaurants. Thank you for doing what you're doing!

    What an unexpected surprise! When we arrived seeing the building from the outside gives you false perceptions of what's in store on the inside. Very cozy atmosphere, and quaint surroundings. Awesome food and great crafted cocktails. The night we attended, the service was a bit inattentive, but there was a large party in attendance elsewhere in the restaurant. We did not get to sample the desserts because there was none baked on that day, so we have motivation to return to sample those. Overall, the food was wonderful and the drinks were great. A true hidden gem.

    This place is a hidden gem! It's deceiving when you arrive....quite tiny and unassuming. Nothing fancy here, but from the hidden kitchen in the back came the most amazing food! I had the beef shanks and they melted in my mouth. They had a really delicious sauce! My friend had the crab cakes and they were equally delicious. The menu is small but ambitious; I can only imagine that the other entrees were equally as good. We had a couple cocktails that were so unique and flavorful; we look forward to going back and sampling some others. Their cocktail menu is quite extensive! Service was also wonderful. We will be back!

    The ratings were great so we made a reservation. Upon arrival I wasn’t sure what we were walking into. Everything exceeded our expectations. The drinks and food were artfully crafted within this quaint unique space. Our server was fantastic and we walked away with an unexpectedly wonderful experience. We will definitely be back when we are in the area again.

    What a great way to finish your day and enjoy a great meal. We shared the pork belly appetizer juicy tender and delicious . The short ribs were delicious and falling off the bone. We’re on our 9th meal in our travels and this is the best thing we have eaten. Our Colorado service was amazing. Make it a great way to spend your dinner!!

    Clint is awesome and it’s a place that’s quant and intimate with staff that aim to please. The bread appetizer is a must, even though the price may seem crazy. Like nothing I’ve ever had anywhere else. Curry needed more seasoning but the spare ribs are excellent. We’ll be back.

    It didn’t look like much when we pulled up, but we were in for a great experience. The staff were very friendly and engaged with a lot of great recommendations. We started with cocktails made from their own liquors and both of us went for the Korean Fried Chicken served on savory Bread Pudding. It was perfection!
