Things to Do

With our location in northwest Montana’s Flathead Valley, it’s no surprise that Kalispell has robust culinary offerings. From bakeries to breweries and farm-to-table restaurants to cideries, Kalispell has an array of places to taste Montana.

No matter your dining style or budget, Kalispell has diverse options for enjoying Montana’s culinary scene.  With a heritage firmly rooted in agriculture and ranching, today Kalispell’s dining landscape consists of gardens, farms, bakeries, farmers markets, coffee shops, restaurants, food trucks and grocers, many of who carry, sell and serve local products or incorporate them into their menus. As you make your way around town, you’ll see a few recurring themes and flavors making their way into a variety of dishes, particularly huckleberries and Flathead cherries.

For Montana-inspired flavors, dig into a bison, elk or yak burger at Hops Downtown Grill, sip on huckleberry-filled milkshakes at Norm’s Soda Fountain and enjoy perfectly tossed pizza at Moose’s Saloon. Serving as the perfect complement to dining options are watering holes and a well-rounded craft beverage scene that includes beer, wine, ciders and spirits. Sip on more than 40 kinds of ales and lagers made from Montana-grown malted barley, hand-picked hops and local flavors like cherries, apples and huckleberries at Kalispell breweries. Enjoy small-batch spirits – including whiskey, gin, absinthe, rum and vodka – at local distilleries.
