We stayed at this lodge for a full week and had daily breakfasts and 3 dinners here. All were well prepared and well presented. Very good range of selections. The chef even prepared scallops differently than the menu offering to meet our requests.

The Boat Club offers guests four separate dining experiences for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Our lakefront dining room provides guests with specialty coffees and a la carte breakfast including classics and house specialties. Start the day off right with inspiring views of serene Whitefish Lake! We offer the only lakefront dining in Whitefish, and the Lounge provides the ideal setting for a casual lunch or dinner. Enjoy salads, sandwiches, and flatbreads, and every Wed, Fri & Sat, live music! Venture to the poolside Tiki Bar & Grill during our summer season, where you'll find a laid-back atmosphere, blended drinks, and fresh food off the grill. For a special occasion, make a reservation in the Boat Club Dining Room. We offer the finest specialty steaks from Allen Brothers and Montana Wagyu Cattle Company, regionally sourced produce, and fresh fish. The Boat Club offers dishes exquisite enough for the most discerning palate yet filling enough for the active adventurer. See you soon!
