    Tried to get room service at the hotel the first morning was told they were not doing room service due to staffing. Maybe reservations for the next morning and it was perfect.

    Crab Cobb salad was delicious. The table outside was dirty. Terrible music playing on the patio. Huge portion for the bowl of clam chowder, just barely warm, still a 7 out of 10. Crab cakes were good, 7 out of 10. Server was excellent. Minnesota Old Fashioned was so-so. Great view of the lake.

    Food was beautifully presented and exceptionally tasty. Waitress was amazingly knowledgeable and helpful when I asked about minimizing sodium. Superior view excellent - we had a window table inside rather than an outside table, which suited us perfectly on the cool, sunny evening. Not inexpensive, but a delightful experience!

    Second bad experience. Food well below par for price point. Sam was excellent waitress. $70 for two crab legs that were so over cooked that you couldn’t crack them. Disappointing at best. Always thought the place had potential….

    Beautiful location and service was wonderful! We started with cocktails at the bar awaiting our lakeside table. The spinach crab and artichoke dip appetizer was very good. Main entrees strip steak with lobster tail ordered medium rare was very tough and over cooked . Walleye same situation. Very expensive for the quality of food we reviewed.

    My wife and I came in for breakfast with reservations. We sat down and waited 15 minutes for our server to introduce themselves and bring us water and menus. No one showed up at our table. Three tables were sat after us and they all got their beverages and food orders submitted. The servers walked right by our table. After waiting and no one coming to help us we got up and left. We are staying at the hotel for our anniversary and love Fitgers. We have always enjoyed the restaurant. But, the two times on this trip we have gone to the Boat Club for breakfast we have been very disappointed. We had two more reservations for the Boat Club this trip, dinner tonight and breakfast tomorrow, that I have now canceled.

    Our server was super friendly, but appeared distracted. Really nice person, just felt like we were waiting for things. The food was excellent. Thought we would get a fancy Anniversary plate as we had seen on the website. We put it in the reservation and were there for our 25th. Saw other people get fancy plates so I guess a little disappointed that it was missed or overlooked. Otherwise it was lovely.

    Our server was great, the cocktails and wine very good, the sliders appetizer was superb and the walleye fine as well. Only the salmon disappointed (greatly). Although the presentation and vegetables were excellent, the salmon was a quarter inch piece of shoe leather. Expecting a one inch filet, this salmon was awful beyond belief.

    I met friends in Duluth. I always want to try new restaurants. I live in the Twin Cities. This was a very nice restaurant. The food was good. I had the lobster roll. It was pretty good, of course, but it wasn’t a Maine lobster roll. I ate the whole thing so I did enjoy it. All of my friends also enjoyed The Boat House food. There was a nice ambiance inside. We could see Lake Superior from our table. It was quiet and just right to catch up with old friends. Our server was inattentive, I needed more water, but had to wait to get it. She wasn’t very friendly, she may have had a bad day. This was a fine restaurant with linen tablecloths and linen napkins. We were all impressed with the Mimosas which were delicious. The server brought out our own small champagne bottle with the juice on the side so you could make them yourself. That was a nice touch. Overall I would recommend this restaurant.
