With it raining we decided to try the Boat Club for lunch and a look at the lake. We had an excellent lunch with excellent service. The only negative was that the service seemed a little too good to the extent that we were asked about 5 or 6 times during the meal if we were doing all right. Decent... More

Stopped in for breakfast. Confusion from the beginning - no hostess - we went in to find someone, then told to go back to the "podium". A few minutes later somebody shows up. Asked for table outside - none available - fine, took a table inside. Very nice room, nice view. Waited for coffee, waited to order, waited for food... More

Beautiful setting over looking Whitefish Lake. Enjoy a delightfully dinner with great friends while watching a fantastic sunset over the lake and mountains. The Staff were friendly while being very professional. With 4 of us the 2 men shared the evening special of a 48oz steak (8 oz bone). The steak took 40 min to prepare but was done to... More

Had dinner her with our friends whilst staying in Whitefish ,an enjoyable experience, we are English so the free Valet Parking was a great touch, the lodge is decorated in American lodge style with massive reference to hunting ,shooting and fishing (many stuffed animals around including a huge grizzly bear! )however the decor and furnishings were luxurious and very comfortable...

The service was top notch, from the valet to the hostess, and our waiter. Restaurant also has great views, and if the weather was a little warmer when we visited it would have been perfect to sit outside as well. There was live music by the bar on Friday when we visited. We loved everything we had except the Elk... More

If you miss coming to the boat club, you have missed what Whitefish is all about. Directly on the lake with a wonderful view of the mountains. Take it all in. Remember you are here to take it all in. Be patient, relax and enjoy the scenery! Its worth it!

The atmosphere was exceptional. The salmon dip was outstanding and the Greek salad was fresh with a nice size portion. We did have a bartender, Matt who does not know how to pour a decent drink. After having one sip from my vodka on the rocks I had another bartender ask if I was ready for a refill. Really!!?? The... More

I took my girlfriend here to enjoy their tiki bar near the lake. When we arrived we selected a table in the middle of the seating area. We were passed by 3 or 4 different servers several times without anyone asking if we needed anything. After about 10 minutes, I asked the bartender if they could send someone over to... More

Wagyu steaks are out of this world. Paired with a good red wine, and perfection. Service was stellar as well!

The view is exceptional, the servers are professional and friendly, the food is varied and good. A great place to enjoy appetizers and a drink with the view or have a tasty lunch or dinner. We are very fortunate to have this very special place in our back yard!
