Great food, great beer, and a great view of the river. It's even more fun when the kayakers are practicing.

Having eaten there several times, it's time to let the cat out of the bag - this place is great. You should all go!! We are down-river folks from Canon City (1 hour east) and enjoy coming up for an occasional walk about town and of course a meal at the Boathouse Cantina. This place is the envy of many... More

Our first glimpse of this restaurant was while we were rafting past it on the river through Salida and the people eating above us waved down and smiled from above. The next day we decided to eat there and we walked through historic downtown next to the bridge and when we went in, were seated next to an open railing... More

Spending the day in Salida, CO for the annual Riverwalk Art Festival, it was time to find something to eat. Well, not only did we find "something", we found what is likely one of the best restaurants ever. Located right on the Arkansas River in beautiful Colorado, the Boathouse Cantina boasts an impressive menu of delicious selections. Honestly, I don't... More

We got to sit at a table looking out over the Arkansas River, but only after I mentioned to the host that there was, in fact one open, though she had just insisted otherwise. Took a long time for anyone to wait on us, but after I joked aloud to my son that I was going to have to start... More

I very much liked the atmosphere, the bar area, the friendly bartender, the openess/view...BUT my chile rellenos looked and tasted like it came out of a microwave.

This is in a great location, in a really lovely town. We've eaten here a few times and it's always been good. The only reason we've not given it excellent, is because the choice isn't great for vegetarians and there were 2 in our party. Also, they had run out of veggie burgers the last time we went, and there... More
