We first had dinner at the Boat Club. We ordered 3 appetizers and 3 entrees for me and 2 kids. The total was $150 plus $30 tip. The food was OK but not amazing. The menu has lots of exotic items: elk, duck, squid, even fois gras. I liked the fois gras but my 10 year old son ate it... More

The Boat Club not only provides a spectacular lake view, but it also has wonderful food. The chef was creative in the use of fresh local ingredients. Each meal was a yummy treat. Best of all, however, was the excellent service. The young servers were exceptional.

Arriving late, I had an Ahi-Tuna appetizer at this restarant in the lodge before retiring -- very nicely presented and quite tasty. For breakfast I had an omelet - prepared exactly to the way I ordered it, and the potatoes were also very tasty. For lunch I had the fish & chips. While not the best I've ever had, the... More

the shrimp crusted halibut and the grilled elk tenderloin were our choices for dinner and we were very pleased with the taste, presentation and amount of food served. Our server was a very friendly young lady that took excellent care of us without being too overbearing. We also ordered the cheese and meat platter for an appetizer and that was... More

We enjoyed this restaurant while staying at the Lodge. They have a fabulous view of Lake Whitefish and are on the beautiful grounds of the Lodge at Whitefish Lake. It has the feel of being in the mountains, and very cool decor. There's actually two menus, one for the restaurant and another for the lounge. The restaurant one is $$$$... More

The atmosphere was very nice. The views of the lake were awesome. The service was great. She was friendly and helpful. I've read other reviews where the food is hit and miss. Well we must have been on a "hit" day. I had the elk steak. Cooked perfectly and tasted awesome. My wife had the filet, my daughter the surf... More

There was nothing exceptional about our meal. My halibut was over cooked and kinda dry. My wife had a steak that was cooked properly but had no flavor. It was like they forgot to season it. We ordered dessert and it wasn't anything all that great either. But it did take them forever to bring it out to our table.... More

Had lunch and drinks here on the day of our arrival. The lunch selections were a bit limited, but the food was very good, although the service was slightly slow (the place was filling up for lunch and everyone probably ordered at the same time). were

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.
