Our yearly trip to Whitefish is never complete with a stop in the Boat Club! Chappy and Ty are total stand outs in the quaint restaurant/bar. The view of the lake can't be beat. Wonderful deck with a couple of fire pits for the cold night. You can't go wrong here...good food and well made drinks!

We ate there twice inasmuch as we were staying at the Lodge. Breakfast was overpriced and disappointing. The kitchen did not cook what we ordered and we had to send our food back, which we never do! Our waitress was way over-worked, so she could not be attentive, even though we are certain she would have been if there had... More

My wife and I stayed at the Lodge and ate twice here, once on the Restaurant side (the fancier one) and once on the Lounge side (the bar side). At the restaurant, my wife ordered one of their fancy steaks. Steak might have been fine, but you need to know how to cook it right? She asked medium-rare, she got... More

Amazing view of Whitefish lake. Service can be a little slow, but the food is great! Summer time is awesome for sitting on the deck to watch the sunset.

I ate dinner at The Boat Club while attending a conference at the Lodge. Not only a delicious meal but our server Kelli made the evening a simple delight. She did so much more than just tell us about the menu; she made it come to life! Her eyes lit up when she described the dishes. And she was extremely... More

What a treat. Three of us had dinner at the Boat Club last night and had a great dining experience. Our waitress, Kelli, did a great job answering our questions about the different menu items, and we all were pleased with our choices. The appetizers (salmon artichoke dip) and entrees were tasty, and the desserts (gingerbread creme brûlée, pumpkin mousse... More

We recently ate lunch at the Boat Club. We have eaten there several times in the past couple of years. The views of Whitefish Lake have been the main draw. The soup we ordered was not hot and had to send it back for heating. It was poor at best.

We enjoyed breakfast here every morning. There was a good variety of choices, the food was very good and the wait staff was very pleasant. It was clear that they wanted to please. We also had dinner one evening and had the same wonderful experience.

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.
