A casual dining experience is what Schafer’s is all about. Located at the top of Woods Bay, overlooking Flathead Lake, the restaurant sparkles with views and warmth offering a dining experience unsurpassed in the Flathead Valley. “Our unique menu changes with the Montana seasons,” says David May one of the three owners of Schafer’s.

Small and large plates, many local foods, wild seafood, organic chicken and produce, a full dinner menu and a lounge menu delight the sophisticated palate of the residents and visitors who frequent the area. Whether a local who dines out regularly, a visitor on the way to Glacier National Park, or a young millennial couple excited to share date night, Schafer’s will not disappoint.

Wild caught salmon, pasta jambalaya, angus steak or Moroccan chicken followed by triple chocolate cheese cake or our amazing raisin bread pudding with warm whiskey sauce are just the beginning of executive chef and co-owner, Casey Engel’s creative prowess. Our talented in-house baker, Carolyn crafts our desserts daily and you will not want to pass these up, so save room!

For wine lovers, let it be Schafer’s! Designed by an area sommelier, our wine selection features over 70 wines predominantly from the Northwest and California with a wide selection of international wines as well, and all served in Reidel stemware. Schafer’s has over 15 fine wines offered by the glass. Our knowledgeable waitrons will expertly attend to the most discerning connoisseur or those who may be new to the wine experience to find the perfect pairing for an excellent dining experience.

We invite you to the top of Woods Bay overlooking Flathead Lake to savor the experience of dining at Schafer’s. We are certain you will be back with your family and friends to try all of the delicious offerings that we prepare. We love what we do and our professional and well-trained staff is ready and waiting to serve you!
