Kiska’s Moves to Kalispell

Kiska’s Southern Kitchen has moved into the Loading Dock building on East Center Street in Kalispell

Kiska’s Southern Kitchen has moved into the Loading Dock building on East Center Street in Kalispell.

The restaurant, which boasts southern foods made from scratch, used to serve patrons in Bigfork as Kiska’s By The Lake. Ownership moved the restaurant to Kalispell, and opened their doors to customers on Dec. 5.

Manager Jory Monroe said the move to Kalispell will allow the restaurant more expansion opportunities.

“We just wanted more year-round exposure,” he said, “and a little more room for growth.”

In a move to be healthier and keep the restaurant cleaner, Monroe said they decided to get rid of their fryers. Also, the menu has expanded to include all types of Southern food, Monroe said, not just those found in Texas and Louisiana. This will include New Mexican cuisine, along with Cuban-inspired dishes.

  • Snowbird

    Sad to see it leave Bigfork! I have enjoyed it there and will have to drive to Kalispell more often while in Montana during the warmer months.
    I love the fried chicken especially!!

    Wonder if they can make a killer Cuban sandwich for lunch… I’d love another option for takeout during the lunch hour.

    Brady, you will have to ask Rhett about all things Cuban. Are you not being racist by eating there?

    • Rhett the Butler

      Like French Dip sandwiches tell you all things about France or Italian subs tell you all things about Italy or a Greek salad tells you all things about Greece. Jeez, you’re a flaming idiot.

    I was just following your lead. All things southern have to be racist. Do not eat there or you will be corrupted.

      I like cotton. And you’re right, when it comes to pecan pie.

    It is amazing how you can turn your hate on and off.
