    The food and service were excellent. The sea bass special was perfectly prepared and the sever graciously substituted mashed potatoes for rice. My wife had filet and it was delicious. Zack was our server and he was friendly with a smile each time he spoke with us. He was helpful with suggestions and was very attentive. Great dining experience.

    Dinner was great. We had seats at the bar. Food was great. We each had the Sea Bass special. Large portions and good. Since we’re from Florida it was nice to find a place in MT with good fish. We enjoyed it so much last night we are going back tonight. Service was good and our bartender was wonderful. She answered everything we asked about. Very friendly and polite.

    Third time making a reservation here. Every time we have gotten a tiny table and a server who would rather not wait on us. Tonight we were seated across from a booth of loud, young people in sweat pants, drinking water. We politely requested a different table or bar seating. That wasn't an option even though there were multiple seats open. Sad that a restaurant we booked 3+ weeks out would rather cadre to a group of kids than people who want to spend money. We went to the golf course and had an amazing meal and top notch service. Reconsider before dining here.

    Appetizer of cram/shrimp cakes was very good as was the Charred Romaine Salad. The Halibut entre special came out stone cold. As the noise level was "vibrant" I misunderstood the waitress on the halibut preparation. Wasn't expecting an Asian prep in a "New Orleans" style restaurant. But to bring out something that was stone cold is a big issue. It was cooked perfectly but had been setting around. The other entre Zydeco Combo was a combination of things that all tasted the same. So def not my favorite place to dine.

    This restaurant had a lot of different types of dining options within the restaurant itself. We ate at the bar but I would recommend the main dining room as the best option. On the other side of the restaurant was another bar and live music.

    We have been going to Tupelo's for years. The quality is outstanding in every way. They have tried to be accommodating to the absolute crushing overflow of people that have swarmed Whitefish post-Pandemic. There is no cure for loud, obnoxious customers, yet the Tupelo crew handle everything with best practice as always, and the food is above and beyond. Excellent every time.

    Our meal at Tupelo Grille was full of flavor and service from our waitress was pretty good! So far, it is the best meal we’ve had in Montana. We did run into an issue when being seated. I made a later reservation time on Open Table in order to reserve a normal dining table instead of a high top. Typically we don’t mind high tops, but it was our anniversary and we wanted a more formal seating arrangement. However, we were seated at a high top even though we specifically reserved a dining table. We told the hostess our issue and she ultimately sat us at a normal dining table for two but was rude and gave an attitude.

    Although this restaurant is very popular, it was not a good choice for our anniversary dinner. There was an energetic vibe, as in tables too close and acoustics too loud. Food was good but prices are moderately high for the service we received, and our server Meg's unsmiling, borderline-condescending service gave us an unpleasant feeling as we dined. Other large parties (perhaps of regulars) apparently merited her attention. We waiting long minutes for water and menus. We were never asked if our food was good. She lost the opportunity to sell us more wine because she never revisited our table. By the time we left, we were disappointed. This dinner was the low spot in our Montana vacation. We do recommend sister restaurant Abruzzo's and Gunsight Saloon in Columbia Falls, which we were told is owned by the same restaurant group.

    Lamb chops were too fatty. Carrots were not fully cooked. The Zydeco entree was just OK. We had annoying flies around our meal. We managed to kill 2 of them. The waiter apologized when we told him. The bread pudding dessert was the only highlight of the meal.

    We enjoy the restaurant and the food is great. We ate in the lounge right by that evening’s entertainment by David Walburn, a local singer songwriter. Didn’t want to leave it was such a good time. The hostess, Grace, was very welcoming. The whole team worked together well for a delicious meal and memorable time.
