This is the best restaurant I’ve eaten in for over a decade. Their basket of chips were beyond belief - warm, fluffy, crispy and dusted with Parmesan cheese instead of plain old salt. Everyone got a big basket upon being seated. That was the welcoming touch. Our meal was not only beautiful, but scrumptious. I had the Shawarma chicken and my friend had pork Verde tacos - to die for!!

The evening was perfect. In particular, the cioppino (both regular and gluten free) was extraordinarily outstanding. Service was spot on on all counts.

Here at Logan's, we specialize in that classic Montana blend of cozy, casual and delicious. Just off the expansive timber-framed lobby at Grouse Mountain Lodge, locals gather with friends, sports fans catch the latest matches, visitors share stories and everyone enjoys good Montana living. Summers on the patio and winters snug inside, there are four seasons of good meals and friendship here at Logan's, breakfast through dinner.
Our brand-new menu features local specialties, light snacks to pair with your après, and fresh and hearty meals designed to fuel your adventures. Join us by the towering stone fireplace, next to the rustic bar or in a quiet corner for some really good food, a pint of local brew or a specialty drink. And, of course, a warm Whitefish welcome.

Food was fantastic, we will be back for the French Onion Soup! Maybe servers are just learning, but not very attentive, needed to track them down for drinks and refills. Other than that it was a lovely experience and we will be back. The dining room is beautiful and cozy with a fire place in the middle.

The food by Chef Allison was phenomenal #Allison. A few of us have celiac (gf) and while at first it didn't seem they have much on the menu - they could not have been more accomodating making our brunch at the end of a fabulous bachelorette weekend all the more special. Thank you Chef Allison :-).

The service from the time we arrived to the time we left was remarkable ! Each staff member from valet to hostess treated us like we were their only customer that night. When they found out it was my hubby’s birthday they even compted us our dessert. We really enjoyed our night out at the Montage.
