We had stopped in at The Boathouse looking for a few cocktails and a beautiful view and we found it. Jony Mac is so personable and knowledgeable about the area. Great costumer service! We will be back tonight for the live music!

The bar has the best view pf the ;ale. The drinks are great. They switched to a "tapas" menu... I preferred the old menu where you could get entrees, but stop in if you want a drink and a snack.

We were advised by a local that this was his favorite place to eat. Unfortunately we missed the dinner, but Johnny Mac, the bartender welcomed us for drinks. And the sunset was amazing!! It is a hard to find place, well worth the effort!!

Went into the Boathouse for the first time and enjoyed every minute of it. Sunset was amazing and the bartender Jonny Mac made the visit even better. Great service and even better conversation by Jonny.
