The Boat Club is proud to offer our 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 new Smoked Trout Benedict. 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, wraps 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 tasty bar food off the grill. For the special occasion with family and friends, take it up a notch and 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 be considered good old fashioned comfort food for our local Montanans.

Steak was excellent/halibut special was odd to say the least and a very small piece of fish/the hostess put us next to a party of about 20 people celebrating a birthday. They very nicely moved us twice. It was clear that even the other larger tables in the restaurant were a bit bothered by the noise and disruption as the... More

Having eaten at a different establishment, I wanted my family to watch the sun set on Whitefish Lake while enjoying a beverage. We enjoyed the energy from the large crowds enjoying meals and drinks on the Lodge at Whitefish terrace and marina. It was fun seeing the waverunner, jetskis, ski boats and Lady of the Lake Tour Boat come into... More

Service was a bit slow, but the food was very well prepared. They seemed a bit short staffed in the kitchen

We had a wonderful dinner at the Boat Club. We hung around until the music started. My friend's school friend was playing and the restaurant let us hang until he started. We were there for over 5 hours. Of course, we ate and drank. The sunset was beautiful. Service was excellent.

We stayed at The Lodge on Whitefish Lake last month for 3 days and ate/drank at the Boat House several times. The food is always great and the portions are generous. The service was very slow. We have stayed here before, not sure what has changed but it took a very long time to get drinks. The bar staff was... More

Good service, good food, good view BUT they had a young child's birthday party started about 7:30, in the middle of the deck with crying tired children no older than 6 or 7. It is ridiculous to accept that party at that late time. We left earlier than we would have, not wanting to put up with it any longer.

Dropped by for a drink and to drink the fabulous view. The bar is beautiful. An OK selection of drinks, but staff offered incorrect advice about beers and were more interested in socializing amongst themselves rather than professionally serving customers.

Have been here several times and if you eat at the bar it is more or less affordable. The restaurant has declined with numerous chef changes
