During the last few years, Kalispell has welcomed an uptick in culinary offerings, including restaurants and watering holes. Patrons can dig into bison filet at Mercantile Steak, sip on made-right-here beer at SunRift Beer Company and savor the flavors of local-raised apples at Big Mountain Ciderworks, set amongst a fragrant apple orchard. An upscale addition to Kalispell’s ever-growing culinary scene – Freestone Restaurant. Menu items include bone marrow, bison, walleye and steak, while all dishes use as many locally sourced items as possible. Meanwhile The Dusty Star Saloon leans into casual – but delicious – fare in a Western-inspired setting, with pulled pork, burgers and steak.
