Coming up to the restaurant, it didn't look like what I was expecting. As you enter it looked a little better. The staff seemed friendly but a little under staffed for a weeknight.The restaurant didn't seem very busy yet it took quite a while to...More

Great place near the airport. Service and food are what you would expect from the Boathouse. Very casual if you want to sit in the bar.

The Boathouse offers to upgrade your entree to a 3 course dinner for an extra $10 (what a deal). My better 1/2 advised that the sable fish was a good choice but for some unknown reason the Boathouse still can't manage to cook a steak...More

Conveniently located in the heart of Richmond. A lot of parking. A good view of the yacht dock from a distance. Buy the gift cards from Costco to get ~20% off.

Disappointing visit, our error is wanting the Happy Hour deals...so this limits to the area it is served and the one server available. We chose table middle of lounge, room was uncomfortably warm so I asked our hostess if there was a chance to turn...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
