Got the fettuccini Alfredo and was very surprised at how delicious it was! Tasted so fresh! The dinner bread we were served was also very good. Will be returning!

Stopped by this place as I wanted to check out all the restaurants in the Simpson Bay area and was met with horrible service. Server was rude and did not look like she liked her job. From beginning to end it was a bad experience when it came to my interaction with the waitress. The menu was wrong, the prices... More

Food was extremely good. The back room was closed because they are going to renovate. So we sat in the front. Its like a roadhouse. Even so, had a great meal.

On my first visit to St. Maarten we were lucky enough to find this place! Killer food, service , and atmosphere. The staff became our family. We even stayed an extra three days because of the connection we had with these people! Go hang with the Boathouse crew! You won't regret it! See yall again in a few weeks! Big... More

While the food was quite tasty, it took for ever to get our drinks and entree's. To make it worse, it was the owner took our order, you would think she would pay more attention to her customers. (And they weren't that busy)

Came here for dinner and got eaten alive by mosquitoes! That was awful. Inattentive servers, mediocre food. I wouldn't recommend it when there are so many other fantastic restaurants in the area.

After four visits to this amazing island, I must say that The Boathouse is the one place that I felt welcome, at home, on holiday, amongst friends, and a part of the island all at once. The food is amazing. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. Great music and fun too. It's the perfect spot!

This restaurant has been in business for over 20 years and we've always enjoyed eating there on our annual visits to St Maarten. All good things come to an end is the quote that comes to mind. We arrived last night with friends to find the restaurant itself is closed, supposedly to replace the floors. A somewhat temporary looking platform... More

We ate dinner here and had the best fried shrimp EVER! The service, however, was worse than poor. Our waitress wouldn't even ring up our check after we eventually got up and took it to her at the register. A night later in the week my husband wanted the shrimp again, so we stopped by to see if the same... More

The food was wonderful but the slow service really put a damper on the whole dining experience. Our dinner took forever to come out.
