Fish & chips ($11.95) and zucchini sticks ($7.25) were not only delicious but the portions were large. Friendly staff with fast service. The sign says FAST FOOD but they do not mean junky frozen stuff this is good food!

Christmas week not a lot of choices. Just ok food. Mostly fried and served hot but I suspect more Sysco stuff than local. Friendly helpful staff. Onion rings were really pricey. Don't know why?! Fish and chips were plentiful and they did have a burger for our meat craving person!

Genuine great BBQ oysters and other seafood prepared to order. A classic seafood shack directly off Hwy 1 in Bodega Bay. The staff is very friendly, and the place itself has a genuine lack of pretense. A must stop when touring the Northern California coastline.

This is right down the street from out motel the Bodega Harbor Inn. Just as good as it was the first time. This time we tried fish and chips and chowder. Amazing little place with great food.

This little place didn't look like much, from the outside but the menu selection was fairly extensive and the quality of the food was exceptionally good. There were six of us in our group and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal.

If you are driving the coast and need to stop for lunch, the Boathouse is a great place to stop. Have the clam chowder. It is great. The service was friendly and efficent.

Really, we enjoyed our food and the service was good. The price per plate was a little high for basic fish & chips and calamari & chips, but the flavor of each item was pretty good; it was not too greasy, not too salty. It was a decent meal, but it didn't "WOW" us. We might go back one day,... More

Not the best I have ever had but after living in Hawaii for 9 years and having fish and chips with Ono, the rock fish is just not as good. The Boat House does an excellent job with the fish they use and the service was excellent.

We were staying in the area and tried the local chowders. We felt like this one was the best that we tried. We would go back.

This place doesn't look like much from the outside but the fish and chips are the amongst the best I have had anywhere in the world! The breading is perfect and the fish was so moist and flaky. Would drive way out of my way to have it again!
