Nice place.

We enjoyed the brightness of this restaurant and the variety of choices. The meal was good and moderate in price. We were a family of 6 on vacation and it had something for each of our tates.

On our one week vacation we ate there 3 times. Once for lunch and twice for dinner. Each experience was great. Good food and good service for reasonable rates. Recommend the buttermilk chicken sandwich and the half rack Bbq rib dinner.

I had a lovely lunch here a few days ago. Nachos were good, chicken sandwich with coleslaw was ok, and tuna app was excellent. Service was just OK, don't expect anything over the top. I would go back.

We have been here several times for lunch and have always had a very nice meal. If you sit outside on the deck you can enjoy a limited view of the lake and the boats, etc. Service has always been good, food has always been excellent. No complaints. The only reason this got 4 stars and not 5 is some... More

Enjoyed a great family dinner here on a Sunday night. We went at 6 as we heard lines can get long and they don't take reservations. We walked right in though the place was starting to get full. Nice outdoor bar area with live music and corn hole if you do have to wait. We liked the nautical ambiance of... More

First time there, stopped in for lunch. Very clean, open, spacious, nice decor. Hostess and waitress were teenagers,(18-19ish). Very polite, big smiles. There is a large outside dining area, but it was a hot day. Started w a Pina Colada. Served in the biggest glass I have ever had, and good. My wife had a "Cosmo"...one was all she could... More

I use to love the Boat House and I still go there occasionally, but the food doesn't seem as good as it was years ago! Since it's the same owners as Woodlock Resort, it use to have the same fabulous food that they served at Woodlock. Not so much anymore! :-(

Stoped here for lunch and it was very good. Service is good and menu is diverse. Good drinks also. Nice place to stop after boating or swimming in Lake Walenpaupak.
