Nice atmosphere but the view of Falmouth Harbor is mostly obscured by year round boat storage. The night I was there they had a steel drummer playing. Outdoor seating was nice and great waitstaff. The food was average and pricey. I had the shrimp scampi. Although the shrimp were very good, there... read more

Went to Boat Dock tonight & was disappointed. It took 15 minutes, yes I timed it, to have a server to come to our table. Never said her name or sorry for the wait. Took our drink orders & 10 minutes later she appeared with our drinks. Order our dinner which came faster than it took our waitress to come... More

Have been going down to Falmouth for 8 years now. Tried this place with another family at the end of the weekend road race. Menu was overpriced for what you got. We all got burgers since main dishes were all around $25-30. Server was not attentive at all. looked like she was only 1 of 2 working that night. She... More

Came with family for lunch. Selection, service and taste are very good. I love the fisherman's fried platter and here is as good or better than anywhere else. I've tried them all and this is the one.

Our daughter ordered the full lobster and she loved it. Hubby said the fish and chips were just 'ok' and I had the greek salad which was good. Service was good and setting was nice but a bit quiet inside, they need to have background music to liven things up inside.

Very friendly service and good, fast food. Brought out the wrong order to me but made it right. Let's hope that doesn't happen again.

This being our first visit to Falmouth we were looking for seafood nearby. We arrived at the Boathouse at 7:30p and were told that we may have to wait 45 mins. Due to a party of 27 arriving. As we were in no rush we went to the bar. Our bartender was right on spot and had a nice personality.... More

My husband and I had heard that the Pier 37 Boathouse (formerly just the Boathouse) had begun to focus more on their food, so we went in to try it. We were seated quickly and the server took our drink order promptly. By the time the drinks arrived, we had our decisions made and placed our dinner orders. He had... More

After being turned away at the place next door, our party of 4 was seated and immediately our server, Tabitha, appeared. It was almost time for the kitchen to close, but or orders were taken, and our food was delicious! The lobster rolls require a fork to eat--yes, that much lobster meat--and the sweet potato fries are tasty. We ate... More

Reasonable food that is not overpriced. Service is good and outdoor tables are available to enjoy the Cape Cod air on a summer night. Although the Seafood Kelly has been a perennial favorite, the quantity has gone down a little, but still worthwhile ordering.
