Views are of the lake and the menu is perfect for the entire family. They have great wines and salads, too. In July, sometimes the service was a little slow b/c they are so packed but the staff was always so friendly and accommodating...and we could always walk in w/o a reservation.

The menu has a good variety of options, the service is excellent, the food is delicious.

We found this place because other friends in our party were staying here and we were hoping to meet up with them by the time the returned. The bison burger and cobb salad split with me and my wife were plenty for dinner and it allowed room for the amazing dessert of the Huckleberry Mudslide I believe it was called.... More

shane c, I agree that our Huckleberry Mud Pie is the best around! This is our flagship dessert and my kids always ask me to bring one home for them. The Bison burger is another of one of our specialty items and a true Montana item. We are very lucky to have such an amazing location on the lake, we... More

We dined outside on the terrace and the view of the lake and mountains was beautiful. We had good food and service. Ty, our server, was very friendly and helpful. Reservations are needed.

Ask to be seated on the balcony, because it's the location that makes this place special and there's no point in wasting the view by sitting inside. You may have to contend with the noise from the crowd around the pool which impinges a bit on the lakeside tranquility, but this is still a fine place to enjoy a good... More

We ate here twice, and enjoyed it both times. The wait staff is wonderful, and even offered ideas for things to do in the area.

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.
