Held my mothers surprise birthday party at the Boathouse today with 25 family members. The staff were excellent from when I made the reservations right through to the end. All very friendly and supportive. Everyone had a great meal and we were able to all relax and enjoy each others company without feeling rushed. Great day all around. Thank you... More

My girlfriend and her husband just moved to Belleville in September. I was visiting her to celebrate her Birthday. When asked which restaurant she preferred for her Birthday dinner, she suggested The Boathouse. I had heard that she and her family eat there quite often, but this was my first visit. Let me say, I was impressed!! When you park... More

Have tried the Boathouse several times. One of the few places in Belleville that offer seafood. The meals are always just ok, have never really been dazzled by the food or service. I wish they offered clam chowder as opposed to only the seafood chowder. I always feel that the service staff are overworked and are given too many tables.... More

We visited the boathouse with a party of five. We placed our order of five menu items with no special requests and then waited for over an hour to be served. Drinks were left empty and when the server did come by at 36 minutes in she did bring a loaf of garlic bread. When the meals were finally served... More

The best of everything at The Boathouse.....food, service, and prices. Thanks for such an amazingly fun evening!! The staff is more than accommodating when it comes to customer satisfaction. I will definitely be coming back for future Family and Friends dining. All the best and Thanks again.

Shrimp bowls were excellent, lobster mashed potatoes were unreal. Would recommend and go back, great place to stop in the summer I'm sure, directly on the water with a large patio.

We have enjoyed The Boathouse on many occasions, both take out and dine in. The decor inside is very good but the best part of a dine in experience is the outdoor patio right on the harbour. It is the perfect setting in the nice weather. The fish and chips are the best around, the fish is a big portion... More

I've eaten at The Boathouse perhaps a dozen times and have always found something appealing on the menu. They make nice, large seafood salads that are reasonably priced. Their waterfront location and patio seating make a pleasant place to have lunch in the summer.

Very out dated. Food was over priced for the restaurant. Very loud and no atmosphere. Menu choices for good quality food are non existent

A casual and friendly waterfront seafood restaurant with the best fish and chips I have ever had. Prices are moderately higher than some restaurants, but the quality can't be beat. Sitting on the large patio overlooking the Bay of Quinte is an added bonus.
