Full Description of Establishment

In 1957,a young football player took over his wife's family business, then called The Corral Bar. The early years were slow, and Moose and Shirley Miller decided a remodeling was in order. Not the usual "get fancy and keep up with the times" kind of a job, but a recreation of the early days in Montana. A 24-hour closure and the volunteer help of about twenty friends created an Old West look, complete with sawdust floors and a new name: "The Saloon." The evolution was from an after-work bar to the warm social atmosphere of an early-days meeting place for all to enjoy. The idea worked, and the people started coming in larger numbers every year. Moose became well known throughout northern Montana and western Canada.

As the legend grew, Governors, senators, corporate presidents, laborers, tradesmen and business people all came to call Moose's Saloon their place to meet and socialize. Evel Kneivel attributes the conception of his Snake Canyon jump to an evening with his friend "Good Time" Charlie Shelton at the Saloon.

Although Moose died in October of 1999, his spirit and philosophies lives on with his daughter Wallis.

Greatest funnest friendliest pub I’ve ever been to! My friend and his family (Leatzows) live in Kalispell-His mum may still be an attorney there -they were good close friends with Moose and Shirley! Driving over from Portland to Kalispell with him and enjoy skiing at Big Mountain, before it became Whitefish Mtn Resort in winter, then Ashley Lake in summer and hanging out there- I'll never forget blowing the horn of flour!!! That had to be done @ Moose's!! It was a complete bar explosion of laughter that I've never had! Then it was massive peanut eating! Absolutely the best pizza I've ever indulged myself and of course I had to sign my name on the wood!!! I must confess I stole a pitcher of Coors beer and still have the pitcher from 1990! I shall bring it back next time I'm in Kalispell.......and have it refilled!!! I truly hope to see you soon cheers to everyone at your pub!
