Great casual dining

Came here looking for an easy, casual bite to eat. We ordered the crab cake sandwich, barbecued oysters and fish and chips, along with a couple of beers. The food was delicious, and the meal was reasonably priced. Order at counter, sit on covered patio... Solidly good stuff!

Known for amazing barbecue oysters this counter service treasure is great. Friendly faces with quick service. The fish and chips was great, calamari was also good and the clam chowder was excellent. Very small and limited seating.

My family and I went to this awesome establishment yesterday for lunch, we ordered fish n chips, crab cake sandwiches and fried clams. The service, value, and food was unbelievably good. I would recommend to anybody wanting a fun, delicious and economical lunch. Most lunch entrees ran about $10-$12 and portions are generous. Great job Boat House!

Good food but bad service :( You better leave a good tip in the cash jar by the register when you order!!!! My family and I have been going to the boat house fish and chips at least 6 times a year for over 10 years and have told many friends to go there. So on the 4th of July... More

Best fish and chips on the Sonoma Coast. Thin batter, fresh fish, and good portion for $12. A small, family owned business that also has its own sport fishing boat!

Fast, friendly service along with fresh and well prepared seafood make this a must stop in Bodega Bay. The fact that it is very reasonably priced is an added bonus.

We only had take-away fish and chips from here, but the fish was lovely. The only down-side was the wait because it was busy. It was a little expensive for fish and chips, but worth it.
