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.

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.
