On the water

First time here I went solo and sat out on the patio to enjoy the channel. Had a well prepared seafood fare that was not only tasty but fresh. Service was good and priced accordingly.

Nice patio and atmosphere, but being a true East Coaster I find it hard to enjoy eating fish and chips on a waterfront which is actually lake in Belleville. The waitress was helpful and food arrived quickly and hot. Beer was nice and cold. Servings were plentiful, but I did find the fish very greasy.

Arrived on spec one evening and they managed to find a table for us inside despite it being very busy. However they did say that there was no chance of an outside table overlooking the marina. Fortunately we had a window seat but it would have been better to have been outside. Food was good but not stunning. The numbers... More

This place is a must when visiting Belleville! It not only has great food, it has an incredible view, having a patio on the water.

The Boathouse is always busy, being that it's located on the Bay opposite the Quinte Yacht Club so while you're eating on the deck, you see some lovely boats and lots of birds (waiting to be fed). The fish & chips are delicious, salmon is tasty, some of their salads are good so you'll never go hungry. Go early if... More

Restaurant was recommended to us by someone who frequents here. I have to say it was the Best fish and chips I have ever had! Went for lunch...service was quick ... waitress was very friendly...had a table overlooking the marina which was quite nice. Portions were quite large and the coleslaw had a nice taste to it as well. Both,... More

We went to the Boathouse for lunch one day and dinner the next. All of our lunches, salads with seafood and fish and chips were terrific. At dinner the food was mostly good, but the vegetables were slightly overlooked and the scallops were small, although the menu said large, and were overdone. The halibut and haddock were very well prepared.

We visited the Boathouse Restaurant , in Belleville , Ontario with friends who had recommended the food. They were absolutely correct on the food quality and presentation. We will definitely stop again whenever we are in the area. The location is directly on the water overlooking a marina. Clean and neat premises, varied menu suitable for anyone, and nice atmosphere.... More

I was planning a dinner for four friends and picked this restaurant mostly on the basis of location, but the on line menu selection looked good. The general consensus at the end of the meal was that the food was mediocre and extremely overpriced. I had paid $40 basically for coffee, a soft drink and a small piece of halibut,... More

Had lunch on the Patio here on Sunday, great restaurant, excellent food, great friendly service, reasonable prices, full menu, what more do you want. We had the Haddock fish and chip lunch special, cooked to perfection, with a crispy light batter and piping hot, there was a good variety of dishes on the Menu to choose from, I would love... More
