Good Food

I liked the salad bar and the food was good. The service could have been a little better the young gal tht waited on us might have just been having a bad day kind of crabby.

Del & Amber and their staff accommodated our Family Reunion in the waterside bar downstairs. Excellent location, food was great. Cora was our great bartender. A GREAT time was had by all!

We ate here on our way home from camping and loved this place. It had great selection of burgers and home cooked meals. I had the burger with Tabasco, pepper jack and peppers. IT was delish. Great beer selection too. The only thing I didn't like is we had a large party and our server added extra gratuity without telling... More

Visited The Boathouse for Father's Day after hearing add on radio thinking it would be a fun place to have dinner on deck overlooking lake. There is almost zero parking at this place. I hate parking on the street in a neighborhood in front of people's homes. I feel like I'm infringing on their property. Deck is just wide enough... More

this is a clean, family friendly Restaurant and Bar with average food. Parking is inconvenient sometimes. It also has an outdoor Deck overlooking the Clear Lake.

I used to love the Boathouse. Their food was good, the setting is nice, and the service was decent. Now, I've been there twice lately and the food was cold, and I felt like it was all processed, frozen food. And the service was downright horrible! The waitress didn't even come to ask for our drinks for about 10 minutes.... More

Nothing spectacular. We had a Reuben and Rachel sandwich. Very good. I've been to nicer restaurants on a lake setting, but perhaps for Waseca this is pretty good, since it's a smaller town. I would go back, perhaps when there is a little more atmosphere or we could go to the basement bar (it was closed, which disappointed us because... More

The Boathouse is a nice casual place to have dinner. Plus you can sit outside & view the lake. I think the food is good, certainly not outstanding but fine.
