Clean and Friendly atmosphere

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!

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.

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!
