The food here is usually bad. Small portions or low quality. Major tourist trap. Pretty views and nice atmosphere but expensive. Even the drink quality has gone down. Syrupy and cheap-tasting.More

Recommended by our fishing guide, the Boat House did not disappoint. Though quite hot out (about 92-degrees), we chose to eat outside on the patio to have a gorgeous view of the lake. Our meals were flavorful and fresh. Our server, friendly and attentive. The...More

My daughter and I had a very tasty breakfast here. Not too badly priced, either, for a RESORT. We paid about $30 including tip, for a nice hot breakfast.

Dear Bigskylaw, There is nothing like a "very tasty breakfast" to start your day, especially if you are headed out to enjoy all that Whitefish and Glacier National Park have to offer. We hope you enjoyed your day! David Kingston 406-863-4009

The Boat Club offers 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 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.
