I went to this place after a long day of rafting on the Kennebec river. It was on a Friday night. They had karaoke and bon fire outside. The service was great. Everyone was having a good time.

After an incredible day of rafting there is no funner place, in my opinion, than the Boatman's! Karaoke, pool table, pig roasts, excellent bands and hallow log fires. They supply the fun for sure! You can FEEL the energy and excitement. I love it here!

Had a blast here after our time on the river! We came for karaoke night, and met a friendly crowd of people who made us feel very welcomed. The bonfire was also nice touch after a long day!
