The Boathouse Eatery is located at the town Docks overlooking beautiful Georgian Bay.

Our upstairs dining room is great for private bookings of parties of up to 45 people. Open for lunch and dinner seven days a week and live entertainment every Friday & Saturday night. One of Georgian Bay's best waterfront restaurants.

Just love it

I have been dining there for year. The owners now are some of the best in Midland. The view is fantastic, food is good & you are allways looked after. What more can you ask for.

Yeah, there was five teenagers walking into a restaurant (politely). But when we went to order we asked if we could split an appetizers and recieved an eye roll and said "seriously girls". Throughout the whole lunch there was no service, asking if we were enjoying our meal or filling our water. There was only one other table with people... More

Upon entering this restaurant we were greeted by the hostess who said, "oh, you have kids, we'll set up a table for you in the back." I understand the concept but don't appreciate the snobby hostess telling us this". Our waitress didn't seem to have a clue about customer service either...she didn't bring plates for pizza or condiments for burger... More

They have an outdoor patio overlooking the water. We had burgers but they were a little pricey but they have a prime location. We saw a beautiful sunset from our table.

My wife and I had an enjoyable lunch by the bay on the patio. The atmosphere was nice and the view was wonderful. The food was good, but a little overpriced in my opinion. The service started out good but we sat waiting about 15 minutes to pay the bill after the server brought it to us. The restaurant wasn't... More

|I have been to the Boathouse several times in the past three months. The food was always good, some meals were better than others, different chef perhaps? When they have live entertainment it is a bit too loud to have a conversation, even in the back part of the restaurant. The level of service depended on how busy the restaurant... More

Nice patio but the food is less than par.Drinks are nice and cold and there is lots of staffing. I would ONLY go for the deck, view, weather and eat elsewhere.
