We have been here several times and it never disappoints. The specials are always special and you can never go wrong with the regular menu.

Three Forks Grille is fast becoming our favorite restaurant in the Kalispell/Whitefish/Columbiai Falls area...and that is saying something. This area has some great restaurants! Be sure to try their gnocchi appetizer. It is outstanding and large enough to share. I particularly like their pork chop and my wife loves the trout. Did I mention an excellent wine list! We've been... More

The place was packed and reseved out the whole evening ( this was a Monday ) exept for one space at the... More

Nice restaurant; kind of unique with the upper and lower dining areas. Nice atmosphere. Food was quite good, a delightfully eclectic menu; very good variety of choices. Not a full bar available for those who are interested, but a decent selection of beer and wine. Service was great; very friendly and helpful people. Would definitely return (have visited a two...

Very attractive restaurant with a slightly upscale air about it. Very nice waitstaff. But the food...Awful!!! I had something called 'Cioppino'. It was described as a dish containing several seafood items w/a 'tomato saffron broth'. Sadly it turned out to be a thick tomato sauce/soups smothering dreadful rubbery rings of over cooked calamari, stringy pieces of tasteless Alaskan King Crab,... More

We visited a few times over the summer with out of town guests and had amazingly good food, but dinner last night was a disappointment. Bright spot was our waiter, the wine and deddert. Lasagna and Cioppino were very bland. Cioppino was lacking actual seafood but had an abundance of potatoes. Flat iron steak nothing to write home about either.... More

Our server Jessica was friendly, attentive, and top-notch. We shared the house made gnocchi which was to-die-for: soft pillows of gnocchi in a beautiful (but not overly rich) cream sauce. Both the NY strip and Tuscan flat iron steaks were delicious preparations. We were pleasantly surprised that the restaurant was serving Nero d'Avola (a Sicilian red wine) by the glass... More

Great service, almost great food, quaint location. The salads and starters were amazing. The crab cakes are off the hook! The single complaint I have was the flat iron steak. It wasn't cooked properly,but to boot it just didn't taste right. Almost as if it were old. I know it's just as likely that it was just a taste that... More

This restaurant has one of the best menus around. I haven't found another place where you can get fresh pheasant, or nice, pink steelhead trout. They often have elk and other game meats. The chef is quite creative with the dishes. Everything I've ever had tasted fabulous. I've had boar, trout and pheasant at different times. Their Caesar salad is... More
