Woods Bay Montana The Raven LogoThe Raven is located across the street from The Islander Inn and a mere 4.5 Miles South of Bigfork, Montana. The Raven offers Flathead Lake waterfront dining in a fun Caribbean style atmosphere. Indoor and outdoor seating is available on two waterfront decks as well as an indoor dining room. Bring your boat or paddle to us and enjoy the warm Montana sunshine or the vast Montana sunset. Cool off by diving off into the clear waters of the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi. Open year-round, The Raven is the perfect place to watch a winter storm roll over the lake from our heated deck.

Open for lunch, dinner and cocktails.  The Raven has an ever changing menu that utilizes local food with an international flair from the chef’s travels around the world.  The casual lunch menu features all natural burgers, award winning calamari, local salads and fish tacos.  The dinner menu has the lunchtime favorites along with All Natural Steaks, Pad Thai and the Famous Spring Brook Ranch Yak Meatloaf.   There are Gluten Free and Vegetarian items on all the menus as well as mac and cheese and chicken nuggets for your little people.

The Raven’s Cocktail Menu and Tap Beer Selections focus on local distilled spirits and brews. We’re proud of the craft brewers, wine makers and distillers in our state and are happy to feature their products!

Throughout the year there are special menu events ranging from Sushi flown in from the Japanese markets, Farm to Table Dinners, Dim Sum Brunch, Tequila Tastings and the list goes on…

And remember, if you have one too many– the “hippest” lodging in Bigfork is just across the street!
