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.

Pricey but very good consistently. Attentive staff, good bar selection, only with the full menu was served on the bar side but short menu items are great too.

Very good food and service. We dined here while they were rather busy and they handled everything very well. Great menu and great choice while in Whitefish.

If you are visiting whitefish and are looking for a slightly upscale but still casual spot with good food this is the spot! The elk meatloaf was fantastic and highly recommended. It was a very busy Saturday night but the waitstaff was very helpful and we were given free desserts for having to wait a little longer for our food.... More

A trip back to Whitefish for some more creative writing and to soak up the gold of hills and mountains draped in tamaracks and I had to have shrimp and grits at the Tupelo Grille again. Once again greeted warmly by Stace and this time had a seat at the bar in the lounge. The service was excellent. The meal... More

We were staying at a B&B in Kalispell and the owners recommended the Tupelo Grille for dinner in Whitefish. We were definitely not disappointed! My husband enjoyed the elk meatloaf and I had a small salad with tenderloin tips. The favorite part of our dining experience here was definitely dessert time -- the BREAD PUDDING IS AMAZING!

Visited Tupelo for a second time this year and absolutely enjoyed every bite. The Halibut feature was mouth watering and the staff were friendly and polite. We will definitely be back.

While in Whitefish, Montana we came across the Tupelo Grille. What a gem! As soon as you open the door, you can tell the place is special. The artwork on the walls, the dark wood, the extensive bar all boast of a truly unique experience and the food did not disappoint. For apps, we ordered the Ahi Poke with Asian... More
