Good Food and experience

My wife, I, plus 2 friends visited the Boathouse for dinner on April 12/15. We were promptly seated in booth by the windows overlooking the harbour. The waitress was excellent... thanks Rachel.

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.

We've been coming the BH about 4 times a year since about 2004 - we've seen it grow in size; we've seen it increase its diversity of offerings; and we've enjoyed bringing friends. Keep up the good work, crew!

We had a great dinner, lots of variety on the menu. We had our 10 year old grandson and he enjoyed it as well. Live entertainment made the evening even more enjoyable and relaxing. The restaurant is on the water, in summer its a nice "getaway" feeling, but even in winter it was fun. We watched skaters enjoying the "winter... More

Best fish and chips ever! Love this place. Great wait staff, very clean and I love to sit on the outside patio in the warm weather. It is also nice to sit in by the fireplace when the weather is cooler. The food is consistently good, no matter what you order. Always hot and very flavourful. I highly recommend The... More
