sick after dinner

Last week my wife and I read the review for the Boathouse in Richmond. The review said the food was better than average, the price more expensive than normal, and the atmosphere was very noisy. The review we read was right on in every detail, but the server was excellent. Later that evening, we... read more

It has been many years since I had dinner at this restaurant. The food is still very good, and the service was efficient, even though the restaurant was very busy. The Boathouse had their crab fest special menu, and I had a delightful steak and crab combo. Prices have gone up, but I still feel it was good value.

Had booked for a birthday dinner with family. Early booking at 5:30 to avoid the crowds. Service was very attentive, and attention to small details from our server Matt as appreciated. Not our first time at the Boat house, so we knew what to expect. We were seated in a booth in mid section, with ample room and comfortable seats.... More

I arrived and there was a bit of delay, where it was stated the place was busy. In fact, there were several tables that were not occupied, so I did not see that "busy day". I ordered the Crab and Lobster Stuffed Ravioli, that is a pasta stuffed with lobster & crabmeat, roasted tomato, spinach & citrus cream and prawns.... More

We were given a "gift card" for Christmas ($120 value for $100) and decided to cash in. Receptionist was very friendly and chatted while she brought us to our table. Server very patient and helpful. We went during Crab-fest which provided an additional menu. The whiskey and crab soup was wonderful. Food was served up very quickly and the tastes... More

Came here for a work function and it seemed a little empty at first on a Wednesday night, but sure enough it filled up fast and everything with this place was better than what I had remembered when I went a few years back. I had the garden salad, salmon with wild rice, and a coffee flavored Creme brûlée. It... More

The Boathouse is in our neighborhood and we quite like it for casual, relaxed happy hours and good meals. The staff are very thoughtful and friendly and the food is nicely prepared and presented.

I've been to many restaurants over the years and we found this one was too expensive for the amount and quality of food. If it was extraordinary good I wouldn't mind but the food was average so $58 with tax for two for lunch (no drinks), is just too much even for the city. Waitress was friendly though.

When we are in Richmond we ALWAYS go the the Boathouse! We love the food, the staff are friendly and always very helpful with menu selections. Even though it has mostly seafood on the menu, they do have a STEAK section....all of which have been very good. We love the raw oysters and the wine selection is always good....Wine and... More
