When he laughs we all laugh. He remembers soooo many lyrics...can't image remembering one. We love the wraps and pizza... read more

Very fun New Years Eve...sat at the bar and had many wines and excellent Burgers. Had a few "Burt Reynolds" shots bought by Canadians sitting next door...multi-national fun! Chappy behind the bar added to the hilarity....good times!

I have been here over 60 times in the past 7 yrs. You can not beat the view in the summer. I love their food, service, dinning room, club house, back deck & tiki bar. I have only had bad service and food about 5 times, but it has never been enough to stop our family from coming back. Great... More

We had a wonderful dinner at the Boat Club on our first night in Whitefish. We were lucky enough that the holiday season menu was still available. It features the most popular dishes of the past year which made it difficult to choose! It was Monday night which we discovered was a bonus with 50% off any bottle of wine... More

We fell in love with Whitefish in 2004 on our original stay at the Lodge. We dined at the Boat Club several times that trip and every year since when we return during ski season. I love the setting surrounded by fire pits, the gorgeous frozen lake, and the rare treat of deer at sunset, moving across the frozen lake.... More

Dear workhardplayhard, I appreciate the review that you posted for us. I could not agree more that The Lodge is a special place in a special setting, Whitefish. I sometimes have to pinch myself to make sure I am not dreaming that I get to work in such a great location. I am very happy to hear that you had... More

They butter flyed my Filet Minion Steak. I took my daughter there for Christmas dinner. We both ordered the Filet instead of the prime rib. Big mistake. They looked like a flat iron flank steak. Come on, not acceptable to distroy the finest steak you can buy. Wait staff was wonderful,, restaurant is beautiful.

We managed to finally get a reservation for Christmas Dinner after it being recommended by another restaurant in Columbia Falls. As they were so busy we ended up sitting in the lounge but still having the dining room menu. Great waitress and great food. Two of us had the lobster tail special, one had prime rib and one had lamb.... More

We ate here three times during our stay, twice in the lounge once in the dining, the calamari was very good although a bit pricey, we had it on both visits, it was perfectly prepared. Our burgers were good, average burgers. Breakfast average, not enough ham in the omlets, potatoes tasted like they were old or had been cooked much... More

GREAT location overlooking the lake, have a drink in the bar before supper. Had both breakfast and supper here and both were four star. Not an a-- kicker, but really good. Well worth a visit. L. J. Martin, author of ver 40 western, mystery and crime novels.
