Me and my husband decided to come here for dinner after hearing so much about it. We came for valentine's day and although we missed our reservation we were surprised to see that we didn't wait to long to be seated and we were sat right by the window as requested. I love the fact that they gave the option... More

Nothing beats the view at The Boathouse! The food is also really good! Great place to join friends on the huge deck on a warm afternoon and enjoy a drink, a beautiful sunset, and some great seafood.

Our server Trace was attentive and friendly. We enjoyed the wine selection and the specialty drinks. Seafood selections are excellent and the ambience was superb. The experience was very memorable and warm. We enjoyed the dessert!

Fabulous place all year long but I love the spring through fall deck dining most of all. Be sure to check out Wine Wenesdays.

This is our go-to restaurant for date night. You'll want the upstairs for the view and it's a bit more secluded. The downstairs can get loud and fun, if that's why you're there, but if your going for a more romantic dinner, the upstairs is for you. Their crab dip and calamari are superb. Always fresh and extremely well prepared.

This location of The Boathouse is one of the best for outdoor dining with a water view. The menu is varied with something for everyoneaachildren to adults. Be sure to make a reservation if the weather is lovely and especially for a special occasion. We visited on Father's Day.

Sitting on a large patio at an outside bar is like being on vacation! Add the great menu and how can you lose?!

The place is lovely. Very well decorated and with a breathtaking view. But the food is fantastic too! Wines are overpriced, but other than that, a good place to celebrate a special ocassion. Would be more regular place to go if it were not so expensive

Went here on a snowy, winter evening. The fire pit outside and fire inside were perfect. Staff were friendly and attentive. Great views no matter where you are seated. Food was excellent.
