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.

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.
