“Burgers were excellent, view even better”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

We came here after spending the day at Flathead swimming. Since there is a boat dick area ( and people actually swimming up to the patio) we felt perfectly comfortable looking like we had "lake hair" and grubby sunscreen skin. Some were in swimsuits with cover ups, others were dressed casual but nice. All were acceptable. We managed to snag a spot on the upper patio, which would have been an excellent place to see the sun set ( we were a bit too early for sunset). It was hot with the sun beating on us, so the upper deck is a good choice if you aren't freshly showered and dressed. We had a couple of Montana beers on tap, and the kids (3 and 6) shared a chicken strip kids meal. We also had chips and salsa which was surprisingly good. We split a black and blue beer burger, and a candied bacon burger....both were excellent. It was a casual, fun atmosphere.

“Lakeside Dining”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

This restaurant is across the road from the Islander Inn right on the lake. Good food, very friendly staff, fun watching boats come to the dock and the sunset. Free rum punch from the Islander Inn. Enjoyed the food and wonderful lakeside.

“Amazing view of Flathead lake!”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

We had lunch outside, was a sunny day, food was great, service was OK. The waitress only came by once after our food was given, never brought our soda's, and put my Martini on a wobbly table, spilling some of it. I didn't complain. The view made up for the service I suppose.

“My favorite local stop”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Doesn't get much better than sitting on the deck at the Raven, local cocktail in hand, checking out the beautiful view of Flathead. If the deck is full you can belly up to the bar and listen to local acoustic which usually has a Jack Johnson/Island vibe. I love it. Their margaritas are amazing. I rarely pass by when I'm in the Flathead Valley. Parking can be tight and non-existent so be prepared to walk.
