    The Lodge at Whitefish is in a gorgeous setting. A drink at sunset on the deck, lunch in the bar or on the deck, fine for the view. The Boat House restaurant lacks atmosphere….It has definitely seen better days! The food quality, average; the service, average, not so much the fault of the chef or servers, but a sad commentary of the times.

    Beautiful spot for dinner while visiting Glacier NP. We had excellent service from Jordan and a yummy meal. The Tuna starter was delicious and so light. Filet for the main course was cooked to perfection. So good we have plans to go back in a few days.

    My husband’s birthday while we were on vacation at Glacier National Park. My fav was the berry and beet salad! Great service and nice atmosphere with a partial lake view. Most of the view was the pool and diners outside on the porch 🥴

    The food was amazing. Unfortunately the service was terrible. Our waitress only came to our table 3 times, we had to ask another server to bring a to go box and check. We made reservations for 8pm to see the sunset which we got but had to share our view with multiple groups coming out to take pictures in front of our table so we got the view when others weren't standing in front of us.

    We had a fantastic dinner at the boat club. Complimentary valet is great, the views are awesome and dinner was good. We had the elk tenderloin and scallops, both were unique and fantastic! Gets four stars for two reasons. The drinks are stuff! Can be a good thing but they are very alcohol forward so just be aware. Secondly, our server didn’t check on us once after we got our food, and speaking of the drinks, we asked for something different just a glass of Chardonnay, and we were up charged another $8 to a $22 glass of wine without getting a list or an option. Overall very tasty dinner and nice experience.

    The shrimp salad was not good, way too much arugula, the shrimp were tasteless. The mushroom cakes were just breading, you could not even taste mushrooms. And oh yes overpriced.

    Creative and delightful drinks, but the elk was terrible. We have had lots of elk and took one bite and almost spit it back out - tasted freezer burned, spoiled, or something and was served minimally warm. Thankfully the staff was great and didn’t charge us. But it was a disappointment.

    Food here is pretty average. Not mind blowing nor is it bad. Just average. But I think you go to this place for the lakeside view. Just amazing. People are super nice. Waitstaff very friendly (although, they forgot my soup). If they could bring the level of the food up....this would be an amazing place. My bison ribeye was over cooked and very bland. Mashed potatoes very cold. My wife's trout was pretty good (just not mind blowing). The berry salad though.....was solid! The huckleberry pie...also solid. Overall, you need to go just to sit lakeside and watch the sun set behind the lake.

    My husband and I stopped in Whitefish as part of our honeymoon, and before our trip multiple people mentioned we should go to the Boat Club…now we know why. Walking in to the dining room you see beautiful mountain and lake views. Our server McKenzie was so attentive and always checking in to see she could get us anything or refresh drinks. We shared the ahi tuna appetizer and wedge for starters, Aw well as the scallops and bison as entrees. The food was fresh and delicious, literally steaming as it was brought to the table. We ended the night with desert and champagne to celebrate which were equally as fantastic as the previous dishes. Could not recommend more, best way to start out stay in Whitefish!
