Whitefish, Montana was our last stop on a two-week vacation which included spending 4 days in Waterton Lakes, Canada (Exploring Canada's Waterton Lakes) and 3 days around the Many Glacier area in Glacier National Park. (Look for my journal, Glacier On Fire.) Whitefish is a small town in northwestern Montana that is close to the Flathead National Forest and Glacier National Park. Whitefish has the charm of an old Western town where you could imagine gunfighters emerging from a saloon and engaging in a gunfight...Read More

We enjoyed breakfast at the Wildwood Bakery & Café one Sunday morning as we left Whitefish on our way to Glacier National Park. This was another dining recommendation from the President/Manager of Crestwood Resorts. The olive-colored Wildwood Bakery & Café is an older-type house that has been remodeled into a restaurant. It has four steps leading into the building but has a ramp for those who might have difficulties with steps. It is only minutes from Crestwood Resort, and is located right before you cross the viaduct or immediately after you cross the viaduct, depending upon which way you are traveling. Wildwood Bakery & Café has a variety of items on their breakfast...Read More

Truby’s is a smoke-free restaurant located in downtown Whitefish that is locally famous for their hand-tossed, wood-fired gourmet pizza. Even if you’re not crazy about pizza, it’s worth stopping in just to see them hand-toss the pizza dough and see it cooking in their authentic wood-fired oven. Truby’s menu not only includes pizza, but offers two kinds of soup: Soup du jour and Baked Garlic & Onion as well as tossed and Caesar salads. Their dinner menu included Ravioli, Linguini, Baby-back ribs, and Roasted Half Chicken and range in price from $7 to $16. They also have burgers served on focaccia bread with fries for $5.95 and $6.95. A kid’s menu is available with hamburgers ($3....Read More

We passed Dos Amigos every night on our way back from Glacier National Park and we always noticed how busy it was. While Mexican is not our most favorite food, we do enjoy it occasionally, and based upon the amount of cars there each evening, we tucked this restaurant away as a place we should probably try while vacationing in Whitefish. We decided to eat at Dos Amigos on our last night in Whitefish and we weren’t disappointed. We arrived a little after 5pm, as we like to eat early (if possible) and avoid the crowds. There were already several cars in both the front and back parking lots, and based upon the week’s experience, it would only get worse as the night went on. We were qui...Read More
