It's in a really good spot on the beach, super close to where they film for Home and Away! I really love the food here, no matter how busy it gets (it gets super busy) the food is always great quality and you never have to wait too long. Great customer service, smiley staff.

Definitely the best salad I've ever had, made better by the salmon added - and there was loads of it! The other dishes I saw coming out looked great too, particularly the fish and chips. The whole design of the restaurant is great and the views make it even better. You can watch sea planes take off and land while... More

I would highly recommend the boathouse. We've been there after we did the walk to the lighthouse and sat outside on the terrace next to the water. The summer salad is delicious. The burger was also pretty good.

A beautiful location with stunning views. Watch the sea planes land or just soak in the fabulous scenery. Standard boathouse menu with most meals easily for two people to share if you don't have a big appetite. Burgers are enormous but try the summer salads with smoked salmon fillet.

Visited for an informal mid-week birthday lunch. Very busy as usual but excellent salmon salad and fish and chips, terrific view, courteous service and that little bit extra in the form of a surprise mini birthday cake and sparkler un-asked.

We arrived at 11:30am on a public holiday and the line was already out the door. We wanted to try their breakfast menu but unfortunately we were too late. The lunch menu was on and although the prices looked very expensive I was still willing to give the place a try. We had their burger and trout plate and the... More

We celebrated the "Lash" wedding in style at the Boathouse. Stunning location with fabulous sunset. Staff could not be any more attentive - going out of their way to look after all the guests and bridal party. Thank you all for being such a huge part of my daughter's wedding and ensuring all went smoothly.

Always a lengthy wait to place your order this is probably the only negative, we frequently head to the Boathouse as we are a local and it is always a great meal. Our group had a variety of food from prawns, fish and chips, burgers, grilled fish, oysters and not one complaint all had a fabulous meal, however the staff... More

What a view, what a location. We spent most of the day on the beach then headed to the boathouse for a glass of. I wish we could have had more but we arrived after lunch had finished at about 3pm. It's a beautiful location but gets busy on sunny days. Probably best to book ahead especially if there is... More

The Boathouse was simply superb as a venue for our friend's wedding. Located right on the water the ambience at sunset was breathtaking. The service was exceptional - northing a problem with a staff even making individual coffees to order after the food. The finger food provided was tasty and plentiful. I'd highly recommend this venue for a special occasion... More
