Three of us had lunch on the patio, overlooking the boat docks. Nice summer breeze had most of the customers outside, rather than in the restaurant itself. We started out with mussels, which were very good. My son had the meatball sandwich, which he liked. My fish sandwich was good, and my wife had the clam chowder. Sandwiches served with... More

While watching the beautiful boats come in, we also listened to the music of a great band. The first time we were there, we had lunch and the second time we had dinner. The menu is somewhat... More

The Wilson Boathouse is a very popular restaurant with the locals and deservedly so. It is located on one of the arms of the bay and has a legitimate nautical theme. It has a bright, cheery atmosphere. Seating is available on a deck and live music (good band the night we were there) is offered on weekends. The service is... More

We had our first meal of the season and found the food and service to be as good or better than last year. We usually get here several times during the season, a one hour trip from home. Atmosphere is great, overlooking the Wilson harbor. There's an outside bar, music several times a week, outside dining and an inside restaurant.... More

Definitely going back soon. A... More

I feel that the prices are too high for the meal and the experience. It is a lovely view. The outdoor area is fun, but the indoor seems like it needs some updating.I would return outdoors for a few drinks, but probably wouldn't eat there.

We went between lunch and dinner so we only had the bar menu, but we had a delicious salmon salad and crispy calamari. The harbor was OK since the water was dirty and some of the boats weren't the prettiest.
