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.

The Lodge is lovely. We went to the bar for the Wednesday Night cold seafood buffet. It is $10, all you can eat, until it is all gone. King crab legs, shrimp, and smoked salmon was all tasty. The problem was that the first dozen people in line hogged it all. These folks walked off with 2 and three plates... More

I was impressed with the restaurant, staff and service, but my steak (Filet Mignon) was over-cooked. This may have been my fault as I tried to get the waiter to explain exactly how they cooked medium versus medium rare, but didn't get a clear answer (Our waiter was great by the way). I went with medium, but it was too... More

Went for apres ski special but was charged full price. Check your bill. Enjoyed the food. Portions small. Would have been over 80 dollars for 2 drinks and appetizers . 25 % off for apres ski but had to ask for discount. Check your bill before paying. We got our waiter to fix the bill.

Our second visit to the Boat Club was not up to par. You expect busy, but the food should still shine. Service was in fact excellent, as were the cocktails. We chose the very interesting chef's menu. A terrific potato leek soup was followed by a disappointing beet salad. Green salad with lots of almonds and figs and some diced... More

The day after Christmas, 7 of us for dinner and we were amazed at how friendly everyone was and how wonderful the flavors of the food were! The Salmon Chowder should be on the menu everyday! All the meals were great!

Sitting outside looking at the activities on the lake, sipping wine and eating their food is one of our favourite things to do when in whitefish. You can't beat the ambiance, service, location, view and food selection. Whether in the bar or The Boat Club restaurant, it will be sure to please.

We were lucky enough to be staying at The Lodge at Whitefish Lake, and decided to treat ourselves to Christmas Eve dinner at the Boat Club. This was the best dinner out of our whole week---amazing! There was an additional Christmas menu with lovely food and wine pairings, but we all ordered from the main menu. Gourmet. Wonderful flavors to... More
