Spent Easter Weekend staying at the Lodge - which is beautiful and a wonderful place to stay - however the Boat Club Restaurant has gone downhill in terms of service. Sitting at a lovely window table overlooking the lake was about the only positive. - We were seated before at least 3 other tables all of whom had drinks orders... More

Ate here for several meals for a business conference and a few weeks later for fun. Breakfast was very good. Love the giant coffee mugs. Dinners were very good, but I did find the pairing of ingredients to be too weird. Portion sizes are fairly small, so you should plan on appetizers and dessert. The creme brûlée is flavored with...

Amazing salmon Reuben and a great view of the lake. Got to watch a golden eagle while waiting for our food. Wait staff was attentive and kind. Pizza for the kids was more than enough and very tasty.

We ate at the Lodge for a friend's birthday. Very casual evening. We sat in the lounge area and ordered from the bar menu. My friend ordered a "Cobb" salad which wasn't a Cobb salad at all. It had gross white shredded cheese instead of blue cheese, ham chunks instead of bacon. My husband ordered the fish and chips. I... More

Delicious dinner, but not cheap, however we were celebrating our anniversary and I would say well worth the price. The meat was cooked to perfection.

We have attended Thanksgiving, Mother's Day and Easter brunches here for several years. They do an outstanding job with the array of buffet items- salads, pastas, omelette station, hot entrees, pastries, breads, great cocktails, etc. Piano player adds a nice touch. Beautifully displayed and service is always very good. Lovely view of Whitefish Lake is a plus.

Perfect place to “chill out” It’s a fun cocktail lodge with beautiful lake views. Good selection of craft beer and appetizers. Very comfortable and relaxing.

This is probably one of the best views of the lake and mountain in the area. You won't be disappointed in that. Unfortunately my family's food was all just OK. Personally I found my meal very salty. The cornbread was dry and reminded me of croutons. The desserts, including a huckleberry pie and creme brûlée, were all very good as... More

One of our favorite places to frequent has changed their lounge menu to where it is impossible to find something we want to eat. The sandwiches used to be exceptional. They changed the bread, the quality of meat and cheese to make them worse than coffee shop quality. Do you really think american cheese is appropriate for a sandwich in... More

Hi, Estatesav, Thank you for sharing your thoughts on our new lounge menu. While I am disappointed that the lounge menu doesn't appeal to you right now I am happy to hear the breakfast and dinner menus still do. Our menus are updated regularly so hopefully come summer the fresh options will be more in line with your tastes! Good... 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.
