“If you're out and about on the west side of Flathead Lake, this place has mouthwatering food, huge portions, and an excellent beer selection. Try the Bear Bottom Blonde if you're craving something light and refreshing. You can sit at the large bar, dining room, or outside patio on Stoner Creek. Tuesday Trivia and other fun events happen in summer.”

Theatre
“Probably our favorite activity in Bigfork, and such a local landmark. I think it's nearing 60 years of continuous shows. The group is staffed by college kids from around the country who are theatre majors at their college. The put on about 5 shows a summer, rotating each night so you can catch a couple during a week. We love this so much and see at least 3 a summer.”

“A state park on the edge of Flathead Lake, next to Bigfork. Perfect place for a picnic, or to paddle board, swim and recreate on Flathead lake. Enjoy the charm of Bigfork. They have a great summer theater with productions that will blow you away. Cute shops that look like a darling winter wonderland during the cold months.”
