Planned a special celebration with friends. The location is like very, service was great, but the food just wasn’t special, especially for the price! $40 for a steak is not terribly outrageous, but the sides were steamed vegetables. No starch, no salad, and no wow factor. In times passed the food was exceptional, and the nightly specials presented fresh, unique options. No specials, not unique, and well, not special. A disappointment.

We were seated in a private booth but were close enough to the bar area to enjoy the live music, which was great. Noise level was perfect, we could easily hear each other in conversation. Everything about our experience was superb and we look forward to returning next time we are in Whitefish!

 (Montreal)·Dined on December 3, 2017

It's a Sunday evening during the lull between Thanksgiving and Christmas. We were the only ones in the restaurant but that didn't make a difference in the service and the quality of food. Both were excellent and we'd highly recommend this restaurant. Ribeye steak was cooked perfectly and wife's Duck was too. The waitress (and hotel) provided our dessert at no cost since it was our anniversary and it was delicious. We'll go back even when we're not celebrating a special occasion

 (Montana)·Dined on November 23, 2017

We are regulars and always enjoy the experience. The frustration is with the process of making the actual reservations. You have to leave your name and phone number and then, after weeks, just before the holiday, someone calls you back. Bad!Never heard of such a process. Secondly, the noise factor when it is full is high, making it hard to hear each other. Still great food!

Everything was amazing except the main entree. It was the prime rib. Cold and extremely fatty. Other than that, literally everything else was great.

The restaurant is in the Lodge on Whitefish lake--a truly beautiful and classically designed location. The view of the lake from the restaurant is outstanding. The food was very good and the service was professional and attentive. This is a wonderful place to stay and eat when in the Glacier National Park area.

Two Fish dishes were over-cooked, dry. Nice atmosphere, but over cooking a delicate fish is not good. $38 rib-eye was huge, but lacked tenderness. Perhaps that's typical of Montana beef?

 (Montana)·Dined on August 18, 2017

Our meal at the Boat Club was a disappointment. My husband ordered the 6 oz filet prepared medium and I ordered the wild Alaskan salmon. The filet was very raw in the middle and was returned to the kitchen. They filet was returned to our table and was still raw. I was enjoying the first few bites of my salmon until I discovered that it was raw in the middle. The server offered us a "free" dessert as consolation for our experience. We won't be going back.

Beautiful spot with good food. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Just wondering, given that we had reserved 3 weeks in advance why we weren't offered a table outside, and when we did get one outside, it was a little out of the way.... But we still saw the amazing sunset.
