Wonderful experience from start to finish. Appetizers came fast, the food was absolutely on point and my server was not too frequent but knew just when to stop by. A restaurant well worth a trip and truly holds up with the best restaurants in NY. Can't wait to go again! My wife felt exactly the same.

My husband ordered their halibut. It was delicious but their elk tenderloin was perfect! Order it rare. Best elk i have ever had! The service was very accommodating and quick. We sat out on the deck, viewing the lake. Overall, it was a wonderful experience. Will be returning when I am back up North.

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.

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 stuffed French Toast. 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, sandwiches, 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 fresh food off the grill. For the special occasion with family and friends, 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 satisfy after a day of adventure in Montana's great outdoors.
