We sat outside on the deck overlooking Mirror Lake. I has a tomato stack for an appitizer. Very good! Had the salmon for dinner, again, very good. The chef knows what he/she is doing. I would go back.

My husband and I visited the Boat House and had a very good experience. We came in around 5.30 and were seated right away. And the service was very quick and attentive. The drinks were good the food was awesome and the view was fantastic.

Everywhere I went..."You gotta go here", "it's the best in town", "there's nothing like it", etc. At last I caved in, and this was the final restaurant stop on a six-day trip. From the beginning when I came into town, I was barely impressed by the menu. The only thing that looked interesting to me was Lobster Vol-Au-Vent, which I... More

Food was good. We had the onion soup, trout, crab cakes, and a salad. The view is fabulous, and the decor very nice. The problem was the service. The hostess seemed in a bad mood, and, in spite of having a reservation and plenty of free tables, made us wait for a while. The waiter was very slow and also... More

Amazing view of Mirror Lake from the dining room. Cozy and romantic when sun sets over the lake. Food was good, but menu was limited. I would check it before going, so you know there is something you want. will visit again.

Affiliated with the Crowne Plaza Hotel I was presented with a 10% off coupon for the Boat House Restaurant at my check in with free shuttle service to the restaurant.

We are on the deck near the water and the view is VERY nice! My salmon was cooked perfectly and it had a delicious mango salsa. My husband's trout was also very nice. However, the rice was completely bland and devoid of literally any seasoning. They don't have baked potatoes as a side. They can only do a dollop of... More

We have been going to The Boat House Restaurant for years now, and always enjoyed it up until the past two years. We do feel the food is not as good as it was in the earlier years. I had shrimp over angel hair pasta, and the pasta was over cooked, very few shrimp, and not enough sauce. It was... More
