Too Much Salt

Too Much Salt! Portions are fine, service is good, decor is pleasant and the view is killer, but damn, you don't have to add so much salt to everyday items. And I like salt. This is the 5th time my wife and I have visited and each time we bring this to the attention of the servers and nothing... read more

The Boathouse is an excellent place for a nice summer meal on the water. The service is excellent and the view is amazing. The owners are great people! If there are any issues with the service or your meal (which rarely happens) you will most likely be given a percentage off your bill or the option to order something else.... More

My family has been going to The Boat House for the past year since we heard it had new owners. We have enjoyed the atmosphere awesome patio and their menu is great. We have kids and they are often hard to please but we keep returning because the kids always enjoy it. I recommend it to everyone and will continue... More

My wife and I come here often for everything it offers. The food and selection is always amazing, even fora vevegetarian diet. The patio in the Summer is beautiful and relaxing with a spectacular view of the water. The staff and ownership have always been accommodating. Local entertainment on the weekends adds to the ambience.

We were first greeted by at the door by a really nice hostess who showed us to our table who told us our server would be with us shortly. Our sever arrived very promptly with the most welcoming smile and looked after us... More

One of the best patios Iv'e every dined on. Beautiful view of Georgian Bay. Great service and excellent food. Being vegetarian it's hard to find restaurants to accommodate your needs, The Boathouse Eatery has a great selection of fabulous salads as well as other vegetarian options. The Greek salad is my absolute favourite.

Excellent atmosphere! Perfect place to come when you want to listen to some live music, enjoy a drink on the patio or play some pool. Friendly staff and owners add to the character of the restaurant.

The $15 burger was clearly frozen from a box and $12 kids meal... We were really not impressed to say the least.

Kirk M, Owner at The Boathouse Eatery, responded to this review

Hello, I’m concerned about your review. First, our highest price kids meal is $10, not $12. Each kids meal includes, veggies to start, entree & dessert. Secondly, our burgers are premium made local patties, premium bun and great toppings. We are priced competitive to the other chain restaurants, but offer a million dollar view. I would appreciate if you considered... More
