Super job with business group. In fact it was so good (if pricey) that my wife and I are going to stay at The Lodge and eat at The Boat Club so we can get another take on the overall experience. Will have another review (based on two planned dinners in late May) in early June.

We are locals and go to the Boat Club bar/restaurant once a week for music and drinks. It has large windows with a fantastic view of Whitefish Lake. You can sit in the bar which has a dark wood/rock fireplace atmosphere or sit out on the deck facing the lake. Or, if you arrive by boat, they have a Tiki... More

The Boat Club is our ususal Friday or Saturday night hangout. The very first time we came to Whitefish before moving here, we stayed at the Lodge and enjoyed great meals, service and experiences here. Since becoming residents of Whitefish, we have continued to come here for relaxing evenings in a great atmosphere. Local mussicians like John Dunnigan provide music... More

Outstanding wait staff, incredible food. GORGEOUS window seat overlooking a peaceful, scenic, mountain lake. Beautiful, romantic and so, so good. We could hear the live music coming from the bar, and that was great as well. HIGHLY recommend.

We have been attending the live simulcast of the Met's operas all winter and have found this is the best place to get an early dinner-late lunch in Whitefish. The food is well prepared and the drinks are just right. My mother (85) likes a warm drink in the afternoon, they serve tea with Grand Marnier in it which is... More

Great wait staff. Super french onion soup. Wagyu meatloaf was good, but a waste of great meat. Elk meatball appetizers were great, but a little dry. Need to add more sides, beside mashed potatoes, to entrees. Overall, a good experience. We were exhausted after a long day of travel and sightseeing, so, having this option right in the lodge we...

Never been here, but since some friends were staying in the lodge, we gave it a try. Excellent service (Brandon). Interesting menu with diverse choices. Nice wine menu. A little higher priced than other excellent Whitefish restaurants.

Beware: this is advertised as a steak house, and top rated restaurant, it is NOT! My sea bass with panko breading was deep fried with a very thick layer of breading on it (equivalent to a kids chicken finger entree). My husband's salmon was affectionately nicknamed "salmon jerky" due to its dehydrated state

Let me start off by saying that there are a number of fantastic restaurants in the Flathead Valley. And this should be one of them. However on two separate, consecutive occasions, I've been disappointed. The first miss was during breakfast, and not on a weekend. A fairly quiet weekday. The server was not overly friendly...not a deal breaker in my... More
