We tried to make a reservation for 8 people at 6:00. Were told that it would have to be 5:15 or 8:00. Really on a Monday night in mid January.. we were called back right away and said that we could be taken care of at 6:15. Ok, trying to cut them so slack, maybe it was a new person... More

My husband and I were more in the mood for small plates and drinks one night during our Whitefish visit. Everything was outstanding in the bar at Tupelo. We started with a craft sour beer and the waiter suggested we split it since it was new to us. We both enjoyed it but it was nice to be noncommittal to... More

Tupelo was a surprise for us! We were thrilled with the food and service. Also has a good wine list. The gumbo was out of this world and so was the onion soup!

I love the bar at the back of the restaurant, it's beautiful, classy and has live music. Perfect little lounge for a date!

Luckily there is no shortage of good restaurants in Whitefish. For those visiting Glacier National Park, try Tupelo Grill, an excellent restaurant service local specialties. Not only is the food creative and well-prepared, but the wait staff is friendly and accommodating. Tupelo was recommended by one of the owners of The Garden Wall B&B and she too is an excellent...

We were in whitefish for several days and had a chance to follow up on multiple recommendations. Tupelo grill was one place a friend had highly recommended. Unfortunately we were quite disappointed. The service the slowest I've ever experienced; we waited over an hour for a less than ordinary meal. One item I ordered was a side of a fresh... More

We enjoyed Tupelos more than we expected we would. We drove to Whitefish from Kalispell in the hopes of finding a decent dinner and we were not disappointed. I had a lovely salad with oranges and cranberries followed by a strip steak with carmelized onions and Gorgonzola and some predictable but good sides (roasted Brussels sprouts and whipped potatoes). The... More

My brother and his wife suggested this place to eat. It was fantastic. The mushroom appetizer was the best I've ever had. It could've been a meal in itself. But we went on to enjoy steaks and other entrees.

Thank Gail L
