I have busted this place several times but most recently with my husband. The service was excellent attentive but not intrusive, food was absolutely divine and a spectacular view. I would highly recommend this place.

Absolutely loved this restaurant and bar. My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Little Beach Boathouse. We couldn't have enjoyed our experience any more. Food is lovely ($55pp banquet), cocktails tasty, service is exceptional & view is breathtaking. Will definitely return.
