    Really pleasant dinner and excellent service. We were impressed that staff called us earlier in the day to let us know the outside service wouldn’t be available. We were happy to enjoy the inside.

    Everything was good, other than the wind that came up and the umbrellas on the patio needed to be closed. We would’ve moved, but our food was served. It did start to get a little hot. Better umbrellas or anchoring them down may help.

    Lovely setting, of course. We were welcomed by both the initial greeter and the staff who led us to our table. Our server was helpful and very well trained. Totally nice experience. Fitgers staff are consistently helpful and pleasant.

    We were celebrating our 39th Wedding Anniversary & had reservations. I had the Lake Superior White Fish. The dill sauce was fabulous & so delicious. I wish I had more to put with my potatoes. My wife had the Lobster Benedict & it was superb. The sunrise over Lake Superior is a sight to behold & made the breakfast that much more special. Bloody Mary’s were 👍👍. Overall experience was AWESOME!!!

    Wow, Boat Club has slipped in a year. We celebrated our anniversary there exactly one year ago and were impressed, planning to go back for a special occasion. Last night the crab cakes were cool when they arrived, the lettuce wedges were drowns in dressing, and our entrees (seafood linguine and crab cakes) were just OK. No reason to go back again for us.

    Ate dinner at The Boat Club on Friday night. It was so good we made a reservation for today as well. It was outstanding and exceeded my expectations!!!I I am celiac. had the seafood trio. Consisted of a small lobster tail one scallop and three coconut breaded shrimps. All cooked safely on clean surfaces. The shrimp was fried in a separate fryer and the toast for the artichoke dip that we had was toasted in a separate toaster. My husband had the halibut and he said it’s one of the best meals he’s ever eat in his life. Not to mention his meal was gluten-free and he’s not even gluten-free. On Sunday when we go back my husband will have the seafood trio and I will try the walleye. We also plan to try their flourless chocolate dessert or raspberry jalapeño crème brûlée. Miranda and Spencer were our servers. Spencer was being trained in by Miranda. Fantastic service! I can’t believe I finally got to eat coconut crusted shrimp! Thank you!!

    The food was extraordinary! The best meal we have had dining out in a VERY long time. Our wait staff (Thomas) was excellent. Attentive to our needs but not to the point of bothering us every 5 min. With the backdrop of Lake Superior and the view up the North Shore, in addition to watching all the people enjoying a stroll along the Lake Walk, you could not ask for a more gorgeous place to eat in Duluth.

    Hello, I'm not saying these wonderful things because you are a customer of ULF, however I love the warm welcome by Manager Sean ( including a hug) BIG SCORE... Richardt was wonderful and would upsell which I love.. food never disappoints and Ann and staff cooked the steaks perfectly. I don't get there enough but should go more often. My #1 and #2 place to go is Pickwick of course it is my account and then I come to the Boat Club....keep doing what your doing... Lynn Christman

    It was an absolutely wonderful dining experience! The views were spectacular and the tables were nicely spaced, which made it feel more intimate than most restaurants. The only disappointing part was the hostess said our reservation said "outside" but they had reserved a table inside for us. Therefore, we did have to wait about 15 minutes for a table. However, that was not too much of an inconvenience. The seafood pasta was spectacular and the crab and artichoke appetizer was also delicious! We will definitely be back on our next visit to Duluth!

    Unfortunately, the food was less than ideal. Ordered scallops and halibut. Both were bland, rice was gluey, and scallops were tiny. Have been there several times before and have always been blown away with the flavors. This time was subpar. I’m not sure if the old chef left, or what happened this time. Will have to think twice about visiting again.
