Always a great meal and service. Disappointed that a few of our favorites were out that night but plenty of great substitutes. Catch them next time. Highly recommend!
Thank you! We appreciate your continued support.
Service was amazingly poor. Do not know if they just had staff quit unexpectedly, but we waited at the front 10 minutes before being acknowledged. Once seated, our server was friendly and attentive, but it took over an hour to get our food. The restaurant was NOT busy- less than 1/2 full. The food itself was OK, but nothing really exceptional. Unlikely that I would return.
Hi DogWoodGirl. Thank you for your review. We're sorry we didn't provide a faster experience for you, but we served well over 300 people for Sunday brunch - and that takes time. Hopefully you were able to sit back, relax, and enjoy your beautiful lakeside patio table. Take care, and be well.
Our server Connor(ph) made our experience! The place was very busy so the food was taking a little longer than normal. It did not bother us at all, however may have effected others. He was outstanding in dealing with everyone making everyone smile so it didn’t even seem like there was a wait. We ordered a number of meals and shared so we sampled a lot. The food was fantastic and we heard other tables say “this was worth the wait”. He literally made our Sunday Brunch. He is a diamond for that venue. Pre pandemic we were constant dine outters so this is not just a rose colored review. This is well earned. Thank you Connor for making our day!
Thank you so much Tracy! We appreciate your patience for our extremely busy and popular Sunday brunch!
Made a reservation, arrived on time but waited an hour to get food.
Hi Paige! Thank you for the review. Having a reservation doesn't mean our kitchen cooks your food any faster. We're sorry we didn't provide a faster experience for you, but we served well over 300 people for Sunday brunch - and that takes time. Take care, and be well.
Everything was fantastic. Our server was top notch! Above and beyond! I hope to be back soon!
Thank you so much Eric!
Always excellent! I had the new lemon ravioli which was delicious! Also really enjoyed the new strawberry mojito!
Thank you so much Jessie!
First visit. Perfect. Beautiful atmosphere and Brittany, our server, was simply the BEST!
Thank you so much!
We went for 40th Anniversary and they treated us with class! Started out with crab cakes, then I had the salmon and my husband had the trio seafood linguini! All outstanding!
Thank you Karla, and congratulations on your anniversary!
We gathered at The Boat Club for happy hour and dessert! The ambiance was great in the bar area. We made a reservation and recommend to do so. It’s a popular dining spot in Duluth.
The service was prompt and we enjoyed the artichoke/crab dip with our beverages, the clam chowder soup is delightful, too. Finally, if you have a sweet tooth, order the key lime pie. It was delicious!
Thank you for the review Christine!
Sophia was very friendly and accommodating. Pleasant atmosphere and good food. Fun and delicious lobster Bloody Mary! Crepes are very good!
Thank you so much for your feedback!
We ended up sitting outside, so the noise level was just outside noise happening. The only thing that didn’t work as well for us is that the food was only slightly warm and the plate was cool. I have had it before when the plate was hot as well as the food but I also know the waiter was busy.
Thanks for your feedback, Lynette!
Delicious food! Great service. Love the ambiance.
Lovely and delicious! Friendly, professional service and delicious selections.
Thank you so much, Sarah!
The specialty drinks were fantastic , especially the glen sheen and dirty please. Our server made all the perfect recommendations
Thank you so much Chris!
Sat on the bridge patio
Always an excellent choice!!! The food is great, the staff is great and the patio is great!!!!
Thank you so much Jessie!
We had lunch there on a Sunday early afternoon. We ordered and it took nearly 45 minutes to get our food. It wasn't that busy. Half the tables were empty. The lettuce on the salad was limp and the croutons were chewy. They should have been crunchy. I couldn't eat them that way. Overall, a BIG disappointment. Probably won't be back here anytime soon.
Thank you for your feedback. We served well over 300 people on Sunday alone. It will take some time to prepare and deliver our made-from-scratch food to that incredible amount of people. All those people you saw sitting outside at patio tables - their food came from the same kitchen as your table in the dining room. We appreciate your patience and hopefully you were able to enjoy the beautiful view while waiting! Take care.
The walleye sandwich was so good, as was the crab and spinach dip. I loved that we were able to make reservations to sit outside. What a lovely space. The only thing that makes it a 4 instead of a 5 was that it took a really long time to get our food. All the staff were working really hard, but there just didn’t seem to be enough of them.
Thank you for your feedback, Katie! We served well over 300 people on Sunday alone, so it will take some time to prepare and deliver our made-from-scratch food to that incredible amount of people. We appreciate your patience and hopefully you were able to enjoy the beautiful day while waiting! Take care.
My husband's filet was excellent. My raviolis with shrimp was also very good. I wished that the shrimp had been cut up and incorporated into the sauce though.
We love the lake view, people watching, and the occasional boat passing by.
The dining room is a bit sterile. No suggestions as to how to improve that. Maybe add some navy colored decor?
Thank you for your feedback!
Some of the food was amazing and then some of it landed short. The service was great! The inside could've been little fancier seeing it's a high end restaurant but all-in-all decent visit.
Thank you for your feedback! Take care.
Another delicious meal with a great view of Lake Superior.
Thank you George and Rose!
We had an amazing time on the patio, the host called and let us know it would be windy and that was fine by us! The view was worth the breeze! Our server was kind and detail oriented! We will be back!
Thank you so much!
Great food. Great view. Great service ! Will definitely be back next time I’m in Duluth.
Thank you John!
Our huge complements to Chef Anne!! She is an artist, plating delicious food in gorgeous presentation. I can’t recall a better meal.
Our server was super friendly, helpful and solicitous. Wish I’d asked her name!
And sitting outside, lakeside with fun music was the perfect ambiance for a perfect evening. Thanks, Boat Club!
Thank you for the wonderful review! Chef Ann is amazing - we love her! :-)
Beautiful setting, Jen was amazing❤️❤️❤️
Thank you so much!
Truly like this restaurant; great ambiance, good service, good drinks. My wife's walleye was very good. My sea food trio was a slight disapointment. Scallop and lobster were a bit over done, coconut shrimp not very crisp. Creme Brule excellent.
Thank you for your feedback! We appreciate your business.
The food was excellent, presentation and taste! The waitress was timely and not overly intrusive. The outside tables have a fabulous view of Lake Superior! The only thing I would say, clean up the tables quickly outside. Food left on the neighboring table attracted seagulls, which flew over our table. Could have been a disaster! Overall, everything was fantastic!
Thank you so much Danielle!
Nothing beats the outdoor tables on the lake with cocktails.
Thank you for your review!
Terrible service. Seems like a new staff that has NO idea what they were doing. Waiter forgot to enter one of the dishes for the table so the food came out 20 minutes later than the rest. Poached egg was hardboiled. Lobster roll was overcooked. Nice view but overall extremely disappointing especially for the price.
Hi there! I'm sorry to read we didn't provide you our typical 5-star experience. You are correct, we do have lots of new staff as we reopen our industry, and I'm so thankful to see you had such incredible patience and understanding during your dining experience. I happened to working in the kitchen for Sunday brunch and don't recall any issues being brought to my attention. I wish they would have so I could have chatted with you. We wish you the best! Take care.
Setting is great. With limited seating room was not crowed but service was a little slow.
Thanks for your feedback, Bill!
Amazing & thoughtful service, beautiful views of the lake & absolutely divine food!!!!
Thank you so much!
We celebrated our 26th anniversary by eating there. Was a great experience. I asked for a window seat, and they sure delivered! Also brought a surprise anniversary dessert to the table, totally unknown that would happen. Several staff read the reservation and unsolicited congratulated us. Not sure what was better - the staff, the view, or the food, but all excellent.
Thank you for celebrating this special day with us! Happy anniversary and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
My food rating is low because my pasta dish was bland and unappealing. Given the prices, I expected more.
Hi Mary! We typical deliver more, so I'm disappointed to see you didn't receive that. Hopefully you were able to talk with your server or manager on duty and have that issue resolved. We certainly don't want you to leave with a "bad taste" in your mouth. Hope to see you again soon!
4/5 of our meals were all over cooked.
Air was too cold. Had to wear our coats while eating.
I'm sorry to hear you feel that way, Peggy. I did speak with our manager on duty and your server about your dining experience and neither said there were any concerns brought to their attention during your meal. That's very unfortunate, because we never want a guest to leave unsatisfied. Hopefully it was just an off-night, and you're able to return and see why we are 5-star rated. Take care!
Five of us each had a delicious dinner with great service. The kitchen has really stepped up.
Thank you for your wonderful feedback.
Great seafood! Great lake view. Atmosphere is quiet and refined
Thank you so much!
The meal and service was outstanding! We were able to enjoy our friends without feeling rushed. Fantastic evening!!
Thank you so much for the review!
Food and service were excellent! We will definitely go back!
Thank you for the review!
The food was outstanding - both my friend and I loved every bite. I had the walleye and he had chicken Alfredo. The noise level was delightfully low. Its rare we can have a conversation in most restaurants these days. The only odd thing was our very nice server told us she was about to serve a party of 13 so we may want to order soon so we wouldn’t have to wait for our dinners if she got super busy.
We wanted to enjoy our cocktails for a while before ordering , but when she brought our popovers, we went ahead and ordered. Our meal was served in a timely manner and it seemed she didn’t get that party of 13 after all. Good service, just sort of odd.
After dinner drinks in the bar ended a very pleasurable experience . My friend and I live in Minnetonka and decided on a spontaneous overnight to Duluth and we ALWAYS make it a point to dine at the Boat Club.
Hi Gretchen! Thank you for your feedback! We did have a 13 top that night in one of our private dining spaces, so you wouldn't have seen them in the dining room. We always tell our staff to make sure to communicate with our guests what's happening, in case there is a longer than usual delay. We would rather error on the side of over communicating, than for you to be surprised and disappointed. We look forward to seeing you again!
A nice comfortable relaxing spot for dinner along the windows - more intimate setting tucked in. The food was well-prepared, nicely presented and more importantly, delicious.
Thank you so much!
