Enjoyed a lunch with friends water side. I really enjoyed the muscles in white wine. The fish and chips are wonderful also.

we were recently at the boathouse for a family dinner. The food was average, no WOW factor. Nothing that made any of us at dinner say "can"t wait to eat here again. The waitress was new and very inexperienced, and it showed. There are better seafood places to eat in Belleville.

Some of our party had the platter containing a very large piece of halibut, two large battered shrimp and two battered scallops. You could have fries or baked potato and also a salad. It was excellent.

Hadn't been for a while but my husband knows I love mussels so decided on a spur of the moment lunch. Sadly I doubt we will try again for a while. It wasn't bad or terrible, it just wasn't that great especially considering the price. First what was good, the mussels were good, only one had a cracked shell whereas... More

Great selection of seafood as well as other options on their menu. The patio is the place to enjoy a meal in the warmer season but sitting inside any time has a great view of the harbour. Friendly staff and great food how much more does one require?

Every time I have come to the boathouse the food has been consistently excellent. The seafood chowder is delicious, the fish is always perfectly cooked and lightly battered, the lobster, muscles, scallops, are also excellent. Service has always been good, and the patio is right on the water for a great view and spring breeze.

I have been to this establishment several times. Usually for a very important occasion for family or business. My overall impression has been generally good. Recently however we waited over an hour for entrees, and were disappointed with serving sizes. This was on Good Friday however and the place was very busy. At one point, when we realized an order...

Post arrival was pleasantly fine with a short wait time for a table. We quickly ordered to only wait for 2hrs for our meals. In fact a group that came 45 mins after us got their meal 30 before us. After the unassuming wait I was treated to a rather frozen made crab cake that was surely not freshly made.
