I went out last night with Family and I wanted to take them to the boathouse in Midland because of the scenic view that the restaurant offers. I have not been at the restaurant for over two years and I know that it had changed hands. It was a beautiful evening and it's always a wonderful experience to eat by... More

Unfortunately this was the worst customer service experience I have encountered in a very long time. This took place on a recent visit to the Boathouse Eatery, we have eaten on several occasions prior to the name change and new management. I did notice that the waitresses serving the other tables were courteous and friendly, but our male server who... More

Patio dining overlooking the harbor with the many boats is great. Food was good and service was quite satisfactory. Unfortunately,wine price per glass was outrageously high.

Food was ok, good variety. Great location and live entertainment. Prices were reasonable but my chicken greek salad was uninspiring. My wife had chicken fettuccine with a confusing mishmash of sauce. But, was open on a Sunday when not a lot was open.

Beautiful patio, great location, wonderfully friendly server. Excellent live music! I ordered 2 strawberry daiquiri's. Both came poorly mixed with about 8-10 full ice cubes floating in it which made it hard to drink. Husband asked for wings and was told they didn't have them. I had the chicken souvlaki and fries that looked like they had been sent back... More

This restaurant has a great position on the harbour. In fact it's the only place right on the harbour. Menu was un-imaginative, food was average. No children's menu either. Unimpressed, got the feeling that they know people will turn up due to location. The only vegetarian meal wasn't available either.

This restaurant could have it all. It is in a wonderful location right on the waterfront with a lovely view. It is fairly large with lots of seating (we were at table 100 and I saw about 40 more tables after ours). It has reasonble prices (burgers and fries were about $16) but they were indistinguishable from the pre-made paddies... More

My wife and I popped over by boat from Penetanguishene for lunch. The restaurant has an excellent patio and as the weather was fantastic we sat outside so we could enjoy the view the the harbour. Staff was attentive and the food came promptly. The food was good, and the portions meant you were not going to leave hungry. Very... More

The first time I ever went here was when it was the crabshack, or whatever, a few years back. That was terrible and I had reviewed it accordingly. However, my fiance and I were in last winter a couple of times and loved the food, men, and prices. Because of that, we had actually been thinking about booking their room... More
