The Great Northern Bar, Whitefish, Montana
The Great Northern Bar in Whitefish, Montana

Even without going all Grizzly Adams mountain man into the wilderness, slogging through knee deep snow can build up a powerful hunger.

Folks in Whitefish have been satisfying their hungers... and thirsts, at The Great Northern Bar for nearly one hundred years, and we certainly weren't looking to break with tradition.

The Great Northern Railway

The Great Northern Bar has signs from businesses of old

 

Named for the railroad responsible for Whitefish's existence, The Great Northern has taken on the task of keeping local history alive.

The walls are covered with signs obtained from dozens of nearby businesses that have gone by the wayside through the years, as well as relics from the old GN Railway.

After checking out the menu, for some reason buffalo seemed like the right thing to order.

Kokanee Glacier Fresh Beer

 

Yup, we were going plum Western. When we washed it down with a Kokanee "Glacier Fresh" Beer, a new discovery for us that hails from the nearby neighbors to the north, British Columbia, we had some right rib sticking vittles.

The Great Northern Bar in Whitefish has an outline of Bruce Springsteen's shoes proudly displayed

 

Coolest of all is the square of carpet with an outline of Bruce Springsteen's shoes proudly displayed.

The manager said that the hardest thing he's ever done in his life was making The Boss stop playing when he jumped up to jam with a local band. It was, after all, closing time.
