The food bad service is some of the best in the area. I have never had a bad meal. I actually just referred my employer there for his daughter rehearsal dinner. On the lake with a great view.

The Boatyard Grill may seem like they have a limited menu, but everything is great! The dishes are large and worth the amount of money you spend. It is a great date place and has timely service. I would recommend it to anyone. I took my mom and dad to this restaurant for parents' weekend, and they loved it.

Everything from the decor, wait staff and food was fantastic. Would highly recommend this place. Started with the Calamari then a great salad which all their dressings are homemade. Then I had the lobster and shrimp. Very fresh and delish.

Mine was cooked well, but the seasonings they use, take away from the taste of the beef. My husband's medium rare, was almost raw. They did give him a... More
