We all orders different things & other then a few little mistakes the food was good, pricey but good. We... read more

This is a nice place to go for outdoor entertainment on the Wilson harbor. We enjoyed drinks and the band and also sat at the outdoor restaurant area for dinner. The harbor view is nice. The fish fry was excellent but my friends were not impressed with the Siracha BBQ chicken thighs (too sweet, no heat), and the side dish... More

We had an event for about 65 ppl. The manager was very easy to work with and paid close attention to our budget, schedule, and special needs. The food was fantastic, and the staff excellent - very attentive and a great help from setup to tear down, tabletops were kept clean, food table well stocked and maintained. All this in... More

Great location overlooking the Wilson boat harbor. Service was quick and efficient. Drinks and wine were in the $5.50 to 6.50 range. Fairly extensive menu. Two of us had fish fry, one had salmon and the fourth had mushroom ravioli. Food was good.

WE had an enjoyable meal with a nice view. Prices are up there, though, for what you get. Some interesting dishes.

Having gone here a number of times, we're always happy with the food and service, but the main attraction is the location and ambiance. Whenever we're in the area, we make it a point to go here for lunch and we're never disappointed. The outdoor bar looks like a lot of fun with a quality clientele in attendance, and the... More

We attended a wedding @ the Wilson Boat House on 9/27/14. The guests, most of whom were from NYC, were completely impressed with the beautiful setting on Wilson harbor. The bartenders, Chad and Shannon, were completely attentive to all the guests - both at the inside and outside bars. The passed appretizers were a work of art!!! Brian, the chef,... More

The Boathouse has some of the most attentive and festive bartenders: Shannon, Chad, Lacey, and Doug just to name a few will keep you glass full and always make you feel special! The rest of the waitstaff, Bethany and Jamie just to name a couple are fantastic!... More

What you pay for at the Boathouse is not the food, which is overpriced and unremarkable. It's not the service, which was slow for my son and me in the first week of August even when only a few tables had customers. It is the setting on the harbor in Wilson, N.Y. Honestly? It isn't worth it. It isn't worth... More

I think my experience was probably the exception to the rule, but I had a horrible experience at the Wilson Boat House. We came for the surf and turf while on vacation. The first problem was they brought out the food in shifts, not all at the same time. The lobster wasn't even warm at all. My medium rare steak... More
