A rainy evening on the waterfront !

The food and ambiance is very good, we had diner on the waterfront terrasse, it was raining but still a great evening. We both had there famous fish and chip, a little to much batter, but still very good.

We've stopped here before because of the location of this restaurant which is right on the water. We ate here both nights of our 2 day golfing stay in Belleville. We had fresh PEI mussles one night and fish and chips the other. Both Meals were great and the service was quick and efficient. They serve some local beers which... More

Great food, great service. Be prepared to wait for your food. But that's because it's not precooked. We had appetizers and the fish and chips it was amazing. The view was great as well. Can't wait to go back!!

This restaurant has it all - great food (mostly seafood but there are other selections on the menu as well) and an unbeatable location, right on the beautiful Belleville waterfront. Highly recommended.

We are in Belleville for a wedding and went to The Boathouse as it is very close to the Travelodge hotel. Very nice staff and great atmosphere on the water. We are on the covered canopy as the place was busy and we did not have a reservation. It was 5:30 pm on a Friday. I ordered the haddock feast... More

I was really excited to try the seafood dinner (scallops, shrimp, and fish). Everything was deep fried (which is fine!) but I was looking for a nice contrast. Something to break up the deep fried breaded everything. I love scallops that are pan seared. We also ordered a side of garlic bread with our mussels. Well, garlic bread came with... More

It was a beautiful day to be sitting on a patio. I made a dinner reservation for 7 pm and requested a table with a view. Unfortunately it rained by the time we arrived. Loved the Bathhouse atmosphere. The staff are well trained and extremely friendly and hospitable. They went out of their way to accommodate us with a larger... More

Stopped in on a Saturday night and it wasn't crazy busy. We were seated immediately. There was live music that suited the atmosphere and was quite enjoyable. The atmosphere in the restaurant was quite nice, pleasant and quaint, it felt like being at the cottage with a great view of the water. The food was wonderful and portion sizes are... More
