Best Sushi in the Flathead (IMHO)
Flathead Lake website is NOT a restaurant review site, our focus is sharing information about the area and things we find interesting that should be of interest to residents and visitors alike. Having said that, I wanted to tell you about a most delightful dining experience I had in Bigfork just yesterday.
Downtown Bigfork has a number of great restaurants, but one of the real gems is Saketome Sushi. I am embarrassed to admit that I have been so overdue in trying this restaurant as I absolutely love sushi. Years ago I started frequenting another sushi restaurant in Whitefish and out of habit, that is where we always go…but not in the future. From now on, we’re heading south to Bigfork when the sushi cravings start.
Everything from the décor, food presentation, portion sizes and prices were better than my “old” sushi restaurant. And it doesn’t end there; the wait staff was more than friendly and responsive, it seemed that they went out of their way to make our visit special. I have traveled to Japan more times than I can remember and I have never had a sushi experience anywhere that topped our visit to Saketome Sushi; find them 459 Electric Ave. in downtown Bigfork.
If you are a Flathead Valley resident or planning to visit us, you need to put this restaurant on your To-Do list. You will not be disappointed and even if you live in Whitefish, it’s worth the drive.
Saketome Sushi does not know I am publishing this post (yet) and they have not asked or paid me to say anything about them – I don’t know any person associated with the restaurant except for meeting that wonderful young lady who served us yesterday.
