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

Great service and excellent food. A little pricey. But the view was worth it. Special service and a flower on plate. Open windows on the waqter. Go early. Waiting lines.

We've been to the Boat House on numerous occasions. Every time I leave with a feeling of "why did we not go somewhere else?", and then I forget until we go the next time. My confusion was not resolved until the last time we visited. The service of this establishment is very good and the view is beautiful (if you... More

This restaurant has a beautiful sunset view. Service is great but food is just average. I had an appetizer and main course from the specials of the day and weren't too bad. My friends meals were not as good, you could tell is fresh but the flavors were not tasty. Basically you just pay for a nice view. The good... More

In short the best thing about this place is the view, that it. We tried to take a photo of the sunset and while we had our backs turned Two busboys stared taking away everything from our table, including our wine. My wife ordered chicken tenders that were raw, my fried sea food was not that appetizing either. In short... More

We dined at the Boathouse in July. Six adults and 2 toddlers. The food and service was very good. The kids enjoyed seeing the boats go by. There is a BYOB policy.

The fish was flakey and tasty. Carrots sweet and tender. Roasted potatoes with herbs that did not drown the potato flavor. Service with attractive and friendly young servers. View of water always a plus. Would go again.

We have been here many times as we own a condo right down the street. The owner/managers are very very nice and hardworking. The service staff are always friendly and try hard. They are all kids, and part of a seaside place like this is accepting that you are not dining at le bernardin. The views are amazing, amazing. The... More
