Consistently good food, good service, nice view. Great cocktails too. We've patronized the Boat House for years and never experienced a hiccup in the quality of food or service.

I go there regularly and always call in advance to make sure they have space. The wait staff is very good and very pleasant. The bolognaise appetizer and a glass of... More

Our party of four lunched on the patio one Saturday afternoon. We all kicked the day off with chowder, then moved into salads, sandwiches and burgers. Delightful spot...particularly with the view!

I planned a surprise birthday party for my husband with 13 guests. I had to call 3 times to change the number and each time was received with patience. The service was wonderful, the food was excellent and the evening was exactly what I wanted it to be. We have visited this restaurant several times and have never been disappointed.... More

The meal was outstanding. I am a celiac and my wife is a vegan. The waiter was very helpful with suggestions and indicated that the kitchen could accommodate our requests. The result was a delightful dinner topped off with a beautiful sunset. We highly recommend the Boat House.

This was my second time dining at the Boathouse, the meal was great. Our service was even better. Even with a full house, she was very attentive and knowledgeable with food choices and wine selections. Very friendly atmosphere.

The crew at the Boathouse treats us right every time we go there. We were greeted by Andrew who is always great to talk to an ensures that we get the table we asked for. Food is always top notch as well as the service. This place should be on your short list.
