Diner Reviews
  • "The dinner menu looked great but we were disappointed with the taste of the food. It was very mediocre, esp for the price. In hind sight we should have ordered from the bar menu. That way we wouldn't have been as pinched in the purse as we were, and probably had been given tastier fare. The service, however, was friendly and timely."

  • "My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at the boat club this weekend. The service is amazing. The staff is very professional and eager to accommodate. We arrived early enough to be placed at one of their window tables that overlooks the lake. Although the dining space is rather large there is enough room between tables to make our evening intimate. The food was artfully prepared and delicious. If you are looking for fabulous food, excellent service and beautiful views then this is your place."

  • "It would be very difficult to make an unhappy experience of dining in such breathtaking scenery. We are pleased to say our experience was not unhappy, but neither was it very special beyond the majesty of the natural surroundings; and perhaps our final check. On two different visits in different weeks at lunch and later dinner, we experienced long waits for water refills and other routine service. Our food was disappointingly ordinary, almost as if the menu was trying too hard to impress while the kitchen had a bit less concern for what it delivered. Next time I believe we will stick to snacks and cocktails on the patio."

  • "Professional service delivered in warm, cozy ambience only outshined only by the chef! Montana raised beef the best, seafood prepared perfectly. Eggnog creme brûlée a delightful way to end the meal. Outside ice-sculpted bar was awesome! A wonderful dining experience!!"

  • "The Boat House has always delivered top quality food and service. They make you feel as if you were home in your own dinning room. This restaurant will continue to be a family favorite."

  • "The setting is nice and service was good - we went there New Years eve for a nice dinner. The food was mediocre, however. The salad was decent - some packaged greens and dressing - but nothing special. The steak was good and cooked correctly. The lobster was old and not very tasty though and the side dishes were uninspired. This is a great place to go to the bar side for a drink (they make great margaritas) and a burger, but the restaurant side is not worth the cost."

  • "Absolutely gorgeous facility. Outdoor fireplaces in the winter were a nice touch. The food was incredible. Every server we encountered was personable and attentive. The restaurant was full both times we were there, and the place was definitely energetic, but the noise level wasn't so loud you couldn't hear the people at your own table talking. Great experience - will definitely be back to The Boat Club Restaurant on our next trip."

  • "Even though I was told we would be seated in the "Regatta Room" (sounds nice, right?) I didn't realize this meant boring, cold, "card table" type seating. What a disappointment for $36 per person. Wait staff did keep making "noise" about how everything was and Thanksgiving wishes but didn't give any real service. My husband got coffee while I was getting desert, but I was never asked or was able to get a cup. The on-line info stated a second plate would be $4.95 per person. Not mentioned and I don't believe anyone intended this to be the case. However, we did not know, and asked if there were plates at the salad bar for the salad. There wasn't. Did not enjoy putting all my food on one plate. Bread was hard and green beans were cold."

  • "This place should be outstanding if it were to equal the ambiance. The service the day we were there was slow, very indifferent. The waiter never made eye contact but kept looking over our heads at the game on T.V. Even though we asked for our food to have nothing with sugar, the burger came with a sweetened onion relish on it that was hard to remove. $4.00 extra to hold the fries and substitute a salad...outrageous. That salad was a tiny little pile of wilted lettuces and a couple of cucumbers, hardly special or gourmet. There used to be low top tables for 4 by the windows to enjoy the view. Now there are high-tops unsuitable for older or handicapped people being treated to a special meal out. Get 'em in and rush 'em out."

  • "During our weekend stay at the Lodge at Whitefish we had breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the restaurant and all of our meals were superb both in quality of food and service. As a side note - we were there to attend a wedding and the catering for the wedding was spectacular! I would highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "Made a reservation based on the recent reviews by other Open Table dinners. I requested a table for two on the outdoor deck with a sunset view and the resturaunt set us up perfectly! Tim served us ( new server trained by Brandon) and he did a superb job of explaining the dishes, the wines, the deserts. Salads and deserts were really nice, but I was disappointed by the poor fish selection on the menu. The Boat Club is located in prime Montana fishing (brown and rainbow trout, and lots others too) but only Salmon on the menu. Partners vegetable strudel was interesting but could use some additional flavoring. Overall, a fine evening of dining and a memorable sunset."
