The boathouse eatery is located at the foot of King Street in Midland's Harbour. In the summertime it is always a busy place. As others have mentioned, on a hot summer day, their patio overlooking the harbour is a pleasant location for a lunch or some refreshments. I have had lunch here twice and enjoyed the food, the drink, the... More

Came here one friday night for a dinner with my boyfriend. It was very chilly and we were the only ones on the patio and still received good service. The food was alright, nothing special. We will come back for the patio and drinks.

Had eaten there only a couple of times and decided to take a large group there for dinner. The patio is lovely, in the right weather. There's room upstairs which has great potential with a bit of reno...as is, it suited us perfectly. The service was wonderful! I was worried about the food but all 14 of my guests thoroughly... More

Sometimes it doesn't matter what you eat but where. The Boathouse has spacious patio overlooking the bay of Midland and a great ambiance. The service is very friendly so we didn't mind their average food.

The band the night we were there was Point Zero and it made for a really fun night of live entertainment with a decent pub dinner to complete the night!

We keep our boat at Bayport Yachting Centre just across the bay from the Boathouse Eatery so often enjoy the 15 minute walk over for a pleasant evening meal. There is a beautiful patio overlooking Midland harbour; just perfect for sultry summer evenings. The waiters are very friendly and efficient and dinner is always served with a smile. Every meal...

On our second day in Midland we discovered again that in May most restaurants don't open either Sunday's or Monday's. so having stopped the day before for lunch at the boathouse, we were pleased to see it was one of the exceptions and was open. The location for this restaurant on the Marina and lakeside is it's biggest selling point.... More

We found that the service for lunch was quite friendly, the view on the marina is nice even sitting inside (there is a patio), the food is decent, and the process not more expensive than elsewhere in town.

The Boathouse Eatery is right downtown and looks onto the Midland marina. Perfect tourist spot when taking in the downtown little shops in the summer, and to admire the beautiful boats. Location is perfect, access is also great since the lights help. The building is gorgeous and you can sit either inside or outside right next to the marina. Food... More
