We stayed at this lodge for a full week and had daily breakfasts and 3 dinners here. All were well prepared and well presented. Very good range of selections. The chef even prepared scallops differently than the menu offering to meet our requests.

Staff was lovely and food very good. I only gave four stars because the kids didn't love their food. The adults did. Loved the elk meatballs especially.

Average food. We tried the beef tenderloin bruschetta and split the Cobb salad. The bruschetta came on cold, soft bread, rather than toasted bread. So the tenderloin seeped into the bread and made it soggy. My suggestion is to just take the mushrooms and tenderloin...More

My steak was very tender, but tasteless, except for the glob of butter placed on it. Live music brightened the c atmosphere in the bar. I did not stay at the hotel but it looked acceptable.More

We offer the only lakefront dining in Whitefish, and the Lounge provides the ideal setting for a casual lunch or dinner. Enjoy salads, sandwiches, and flatbreads, and every Wed, Fri & Sat, live music!
