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.

Dinner excellent, breakfast not so much

We ate here during our stay. Sat outside facing the lake - very nice. Food for dinner was excellent. One night had the meatloaf and a steak, next had scampi and trout. Both nights sprung for the terrific huckleberry mudslide pie. Service the first night was excellent, the next night was fine... read more

I came here for dinner while staying at the lodge. You pay for the view and the convenience of walking just down the hall from your hotel room. However, the food is just ok. Nothing to write home about but nothing to really complain about either. The beautiful view of the lake really makes this place.

The restaurant had all the basic options most restaurants have, but nothing that was particularly innovative. Hamburgers and fries seemed to be the food of choice for lunch. The beef was quite good...kobe beef as I recall. Tasty and tender.

We were there with friends for two nights is a row. The first night was quit (though fully booked) and we had great service. The next night was noisy with pretty good service. The indoor restaurant decor is very elegant, even though the dress code is casual. The food was uniformly good

This is a nice location on the lake as part of a resort-condo project. The décor is lodge and was very attractive. Some seats on outdoor patio, if weather cooperates. Food was fine: good salads, chicken was very good, pass on the dry meatloaf, berry dessert was good not outstanding, and my wife thought they shorted her on topping for... More

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
