“Nice lunch spot”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

Stopped in to get a beer and decided to have lunch. You order lunch in the back and pay and then get your beer from the bar. I had the reuben and my husband had the special, fish sandwich. Both were very good!

“Great selection of food”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

First we thought it was just a bar and we were in the wrong place. We found the order window in back and lots of choices. We selected a booth and had a great meal. Definitely a locals place and welcoming to the visitors. We will be back.

“Just OK”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

Wouldn't take food order on patio. We sat there for awhile and were not acknowledged at all. Eventually, we got up and went across the street to a nicer place with great service.

“A 'must go' favourite Whitefish, MT bar”
Reviewed 31 August 2013 via mobile

"The Northern" was on the list for my first trip to Whitefish - and frequented much during our stay with good times on tap! Drop in at different times during the day for variety in atmosphere - later in the evening when live bands start at 9 this place fills up - wall to wall on Friday/Sat nights. Food was great - menu on the big chalkboard at the back under the 'Groceries' sign :) ... Can't wait to go back for another taste of The Great Northern!

“Still the same, after all the years....”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

The Great Northern is a classic bar and grill in Whitefish. Not fancy, you walk up and order your food from a menu posted on the wall next to the kitchen. Drinks are ordered separately at the bar. We have eaten there many times over the years, the food is always good. It is decorated with signs from businesses long gone. Great food and a trip down memory lane for those who have been to Whitefish in the past.
