The dining room was built in the 30s and has a great lodge feel to it but is also attractive and inviting. We actually went there two nights in a row because we thought the food was so good.

Our waiter was great. He explained the specials. Our beverages were at the table within 2 minutes of ordering. It was a very pleasant dining experience. We will return.

Our group meets in a different city every 6 months and this is one of the best dinners we have enjoyed in years. The food was impeccable and the service spot on. Booking was so easy and accommodating. Thanks for a memorable evening! We will be back!

The restaurant is handsomely set up inside a beautiful old log building which is surrounded by a gorgeous old-time golf course. The menu is varied for most tastes and the food is tasty, ample in portions and beautifully presented. This shows you can be a golf course restaurant and still excel at fine dining.

We dined here this evening with another couple; close friends of ours who haven't been to the Whitefish Lake Restaurant before. I called a few days in advance for a reservation, and requested an alcove table by the window. I also asked for our favorite server, Dara, who is amazingly fantastic, and who has taken great care of us every... More

After many meals that were not great at different restaurants in the area. We found this place. This is the best restaurant around. The food and the service is outstanding. Prices are right for the quality of food you get. Do not miss this place while in Whitefish.

Consistently comfortable, friendly and delicious! Accommodating to kids. Great menu selection. Love sitting outside on the deck in the spring and summer overlooking the beautiful golf course!

Had a difficult time finding the restaurant -- no sign, no street number. But the hostess was very helpful as to eating in the bar area or the more formal restaurant. It was nice seeing the course covered with snow. The food was the best we had in Whitefish. Loved my salmon. Others loved the bison meatloaf.

This restaurant hasn't changed in at least 25 years. If you have been to this restaurant before it is the food that brings you back. Needs updating in a big way.
