This Boat House is not as fancy as other locations. Food was good and service was good. I stuck with my usual Maple Grilled Salmon. It was very nice.

Ordered their seafood platter to get a taste of all their offerings. Upon asking if it was all freshly-caught, she stated whatever was not in season was flash-frozen, which was honest and I suspect most of the fish. It was good but not spectacular. For...More

Although the location is not too appealing, the food is great, prices good and the service is very friendly. Definitely a place to come back to.

Don't order the swordfish. It was like tasteless, bouncy rubber. My server was excellent, gracious, friendly and obliging. I sent the fish back and it was no trouble for her to bring me the menu to order something different. I ordered the ahi tuna tacos,...More

If you are going to the Richmond location then get onto Bridgeport Road from the highway and head west. The entrance to Boathouse Parking is after you've crossed No 3 Road and immediately BEFORE you get to the overpass
