We popped in a few times during our stay at the lodge. The service was spotty one night in the lounge area, but the live music definitely made up for it. Food was decent, and the atmosphere was great. If your ordering dessert be sure to get the huckleberry mud pie.... amazing.

Not overly decorated, the food at the Boat Club is good. The atmosphere is nice with the bar right nearby. The tables are spaced far enough apart that you can have an intimate dinner. Service is excellent as is the food.

We've eaten 30 or so meals here over the years. That we've been there so Many times is testament to the food and service. Even so on three occasions, the service was not good, nor was the food it's usual. They always made it right when they stepped down a bit, and so we remain loyal. Fair winelist, great cocktails,...

We ate two meals at this restaurant. Our breakfast meal consisted of my husband ordering a rib eye hash, and a buttermilk pancake as a side. I ordered the enchiladas and eggs. I liked my breakfast, which was two corn tortillas rolled up with braised pork, beans, onions and cheese and covered in a savory red pepper sauce. They did... More

We had a great lunch here during our stay at the Whitefish Lodge - excellent food and service, nice atmosphere. A little spendy, but not more than I expected for the location/resort.

I love going to The Lodge at least once a year for a special treat. The outside dining area is the best if you can catch it before the sun is shining on it or setting over the lake. I love the food that I ordered, it was so delicious! My mother was not entirely happy with her Ruben sandwich.... More

Good food and service with a view of the lake. During the summer you can sit looking out on the lake outside.

Let me start out by saying that we we a large group over 15 people. That being said the food was top notch. The steaks were very good, as was the elk tenderloin. The only complaint we had was the food was not hot, we did send it back a when it was returned the steaks were hot. Can not... More

The food and the service and the atmosphere are all beyond reproach, but the prices are a little out there. I enjoyed my meals there, but found that the value versus price to be a little out of line. Go ahead and splurge, but go in with your eyes (and wallet) open.

My wife and I were taking our Son and Daughter-in-Law out to what we hoped would be a grand dinner, one they would not normally attend. The initial service was good, getting cocktails and appetizers, then things went terribly wrong. Perhaps had we all ordered the same entree the out come would have been better. I believe we waited over... More

Hello Robert B, I apologize that your experience in the Boat Club was anything less than perfect. From your description it sounds like your server did what they felt would mend your disappointment by removing the charge for one of your entrees with warm fries. I hope you won't let this misstep keep you from visiting the Boat Club again... More

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 plated breakfast selection including all the classics and some more intriguing options, like our stuffed French Toast. Enjoy breakfast with breathtaking views of Whitefish Lake - a sure way to start a great day! We offer the only lakefront dining in Whitefish, and the Boat Club Lounge patio deck provides the ideal setting for a casual lunch or dinner. Enjoy salads, sandwiches, and pizzas off the lounge menu or venture down to the Tiki Bar & Grill during our summer season, where you'll find a laid-back atmosphere, blended drinks and fresh food off the grill. For the special occasion with family and friends, make a reservation in the Boat Club Dining Room. We offer the finest specialty steaks from Allen Brothers and Montana Wagyu Cattle Company, locally grown and raised produce and fresh fish daily. We offer dishes exquisite enough to satisfy the most discerning palate, yet fulfilling enough to satisfy after a day of adventure in Montana's great outdoors.
