The food and the service were excellent. The seafood platter was huge and the Grouper Ponchertrain was absolutely delicious.

I loved their hush puppies with strawberry butter, very different. The salmon side vegetables we're pretty bland and I have discovered I just don't appreciate maple anywhere near salmon. My waitress was very sweet! The bambam shrimp appetizer was scrumptious!

Everything we had here was excellent. The smoked tuna dip was fantastic. The waitstaff were attentive and pleasant. Not a fan of the vegetable medley but since I'm not fond of the main ingredient, zucchini, I'm a little prejudiced.

We have gone to Boathouse Landing for years....and usually for their etouffee...because it was always topnotch. Last year we noted that it was different than in the past, but still pretty good. This year my first batch of etouffee came out from the kitchen with...More

They do take reservations. I would make them just in case, as I did when we went, but then ended up not needing them anyway.
