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.

Rubin made with pieces of Corned Beef instead of slices! A regular favorite. Prime Rib on another visit was perfectly cooked with a nice seasoning, a pleasant surprise and really worth the price. Wait staff is very friendly. Beautiful view year round.

Beautiful scenery on Clear Lake. Burgers were tasty and they have a great steak special. Would recommend for summer for sure!

Came here with some friends who are new to town with our 4 month old. Pays to sit on the small deck overlooking the lake, inside was nothing exciting. Disappointing that they had no high chairs or a changing station in their oversized bathroom. Things we keep in mind as our girl gets older!

Nice place right on Clear Lake. The menu is diverse, there is a salad and soup bar. On nice days an outside seat on the deck looking onto the lake is a great change from an enclosed restaurant. Downstairs there is a bar separate from the restaurant. Prices are fair and the wait staff friendly.

A group of friends and I spent New Years Eve here for dinner and drinks. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and food. Great specials that night, along with the salad/soup bar. Make sure to get the breadsticks. We were downstairs and it really makes a nice change from typical restaurants. Service was great and was treated very well. Worth a try.

My boyfriend and I eat here regularly. I say it's my fave restaraunt because their Spinach and Artichoke cheese dip is the best I've ever had. It's fun to sit outside on their deck in the summer/fall.

Service is usually so-so, but I rarely eat there anymore. I usually just call in for appetizers to pick up. Food isn't anything amazing but it's tasty and greasy and usually hits the spot. I highly recommend their ham and cheese bobbers. Sooo good.

Fodd was nothing to write home about and the service was very poor. They were having a christmas party down stairs. I'm assuming they were focusing on them more then the main dining room. Would have prefered them to tell us the were closed due to a private party.

"The Boathouse" has existed on this spot since 1910, though the original was destroyed by fire in 1988. The current owners of the Boat House - Amber and Del - purchased the Boat House about 5 years ago and deserve the Waseca community's thanks for upgrading this historic spot. They have made many great improvements including a full and well... More
