Enjoy starting many active days here with omelets, pancakes, breads, poached eggs, bacon, more bacon, and some coffee. Friendly staff, accommodating to schedules, and beautiful views.

The white table cloths in the dining room tell you that this Whitefish icon has class. The prime rib is some of the best I've eaten. The deserts are fantastic! Always a Whitefish favorite!

The golf course restaurant in Whitefish is a favorite stop for a good dinner in a great atmosphere. The warm woods and rustic setting makes the dining room feel cozy. Our family group started with fun cocktails and shared appetizers- baked Brie and the crab cake, followed by the house salad and entrees of halibut and steak, accompanied by the... More

Most important: the food is delicious. Well-prepared, abundant dishes served with a flair. The service is professional. The ambience is very pretty. Wine list is interesting - there is something for everyone. This doesn't cost a fortune. My husband and I have been dining here for years and it's time to repeat our review of this great place.

Whitefish Lake Restaurant is my go to for upscale eating in Whitefish. Their Filet mignon is cooked to perfection and so tender. They serve a side of spicy carmelized roasted carrots and a small serving of spaghetti squash along with potato side of choice. This restaurant is perfect for a birthday or anniversary, has a meeting room to accommodate a... More

I love hanging outside at the bar/restaurant waiting for my husband to come off the course at 10:00 pm. Brought the dog, enjoyed a cocktail and appetizer and relaxed. Whitefish summers are the best.

The Whitefish Lake Restaurant sits on the golf course just outside the town. It is known for its steaks and prime rib. I can vouch for the prime rib. The restaurant has both a restaurant and a bar area that serves an overflow of patrons. Its best to have a reservation to get into the restaurant and we were told... More

I have eaten here a quite few times and only been a bit disappointed once (burger was way overcooked once. The other times is was great). It is a great place during the summer to sit on the outside patio that overlooks the golf course. The patio has a full bar and menu, along with getting grilled burgers, etc. The... More

We decided to spend Canadian Thanksgiving in Whitefish and decided to have our "Thanksgiving dinner" at this restaurant. It's a beautiful rustic room, and has a wonderful cabin feel to it. We were unprepared for how poor our steaks would be - both mine and my husband's were so tough, we had trouble chewing them, and also cutting them. How... More
