We had a great time at the beautiful wedding held here. I was not happy that during the timeline we were here the neighboring restaurant and bar was making complaints about noise. Their business makes noise daily and well into the night all summer long! It was a bit ridiculous of them to complain. We were not by any means... More

Food is always great here, as is the service from the wait staff. This is a BYOB establishment, which is always welcomed as well! It can get a little loud with its open air dining, but if you time your dinner well, you will enjoy some spectacular sunsets. This would have been a five star rating, but sometimes the host... More

Ate at this restaurant in August. Expect restaurant to be crowded due to summer vacationers, which is fine. Outlook onto Barnegat Bay is pretty. My complaint is that the food itself is mediocre tasting, the portions are small, and the food is extremely over-priced. I ordered 2 "jumbo" crab cakes that weren't even big, much less jumbo. It came with... More

Great spot to dine at as the sun goes down. I never have great expectations from a seasonal restaurant but this was OK. Unfortunately , the cost of a family meal is more than this place is worth.

Ate at the Boathouse the other night for the first time even though we have been going to LBI for years.... Its off the main drag so you have to know its there - you wouldn't just drive by. We had a reservation and were asked to wait 15-20 minutes that was disappointing. More so, we actually waited about 30... More

We were looking for a bit upscale, waterfront, nice adult evening out for a special birthday surprise celebration. So, we made reservations at the Boat House. The website showed white table linens, flowers and large wine glasses and beautiful bay views. Upon arriving, we had plain wooden tables, with plastic water glasses and straws, and very casual atmosphere. This is... More

After eating at the Boat House 2x's. I definitely think it was our best mean in LBI. It is located in one of the best spots on the Bay side with a terrific sunset view. We ate here over the summer and had a table by the outdoor bayside wall which I definitely reocmmend. The views are beautiful. The food... More

Sunset views here are amazing. Always crowded but good food. BYOB for wine, beer or cocktails. Prices are good for what you get. Always my best meal when on LBI.

Busy place reservation at 8:30 seated on time. Packed restaurant great views of the bay. Ordered king crab legs and scallops and shrimp in a wine sauce, both dishes were fresh and delicious. A bit expensive but that is expected in a vacation tourist city. Great service delicious fresh seafood in a great bay side location. Key lime pie was... More

After reading the reviews on trip advisor I was a little Leary when friends of ours suggested this restaurant for dinner. While the reviews were not completely wrong they weren't right either. 1. Yes it is pricey but you get large portions and it's seafood at the shore- everything is expensive. 2. The food is delicious - I would say... More
