Nice family friendly restaurant.

The first time we ate here we were not thrilled with the experience. The high chair was awkward as it had a table attached, the food was less than average (we both ordered burgers) and we were not told about the kids menu. Therefore I was not happy when we ended up back here due to other... read more

I was in Midland somewhere I have never been. Staff was really friendly and food was great. Music at night on the patio was fantastic. Great spot to sit and relax and enjoy the views.

A nice place to visit when in the area in a nice setting. Very good to see sights over looking the marina. The price for beer I thought a bit above average but they had some specialty mixed drinks that we thought were reasonably priced. We wanted just a snack which was very hard to get for a reasonable price.... More

Lovely setting and view for an afternoon lunch. Food was excellent. I had a Greek Salad with grilled chicken which was extremely tender. My friend had a Chicken Souvlaki Pita and Fries and said that it was very good as well. Staff friendly. Good prices. A return visit for sure.

The Boathouse Eatery is the most recent new ownership at this location...formerly Scullys (which was awful/smelly/tired). Having a country home nearby, we dropped in to see what The Boathouse Eatery was all about. What a pleasant surprise ! Being wednesday, we were told it was 1/2-price wings night. I ordered 2 pound of mild wings and a small caesar salad;... More

Food was excellent, service was excellent and the atmosphere was good. There is seating outside with umbrellas, beside the water which is beautiful (if you don't mind the occasional mosquito/fly sharing your food!)

In Midland doing some shopping and sightseeing. Decided to dine at The Boathouse Eatery. Was a bit cool and windy so we ate indoors but still had a great window seat looking out over the patio and waterfront of Midland Harbor. Menu was varied and offered something for everyone's taste. Not a fine dining menu but a great assortment of... More
