Have spent years driving by the Boat House. Every once in a while we would stop only to be told it would be 30-45 minutes. Every time we left found great food a mile in each direction. One night this month we stopped in to be told "I have to tell you it is a 30 minute wait, but it... More

After having a bad experience at a nearby restaurant we stopped at the boathouse with the bachelorette party to get a drink at the bar. The first person we met was Benny the manager, and he was awesome! We told him about our bad experience and he said "we will make this the best bachelorette party ever!" We ordered and... More

We had a group of 7 , 3 of which were children. They do have an amble dock to tie up. Signs, dock and path to resturant could use better lighting. Decor and atmosphere were good. We were told that we had a 30 min wait , an hour later we were offered two tables near each other. Starving we... More

I must say that service and staff attention were great but food was just OK. No real views but you can take boats to the docks and walk up to the restaurant which we did. We were told it would be a 45 min. wait but were seated in about 20 min. Loud environment. I would not recommend the crab... More

The menu was decent, and the food was fresh. Service was average. The restaurant is non-smoking, but not the outdoor deck.

Good food and atmosphere. Attentive staff. But service was SLOW. Took about 2 hours for dinner with 2 little kids. Was a bit too too slow.

We go here every year when on vacation and the food is good. The ambiance and view is not as good as Glass or the sunset at Ehrhardt's it is a good meal. Very relaxing time.

By the name of the restaurant & recommendations given we expected a better experience at The Boathouse. The seafood offerings were minimal, service OK and food was average. Not sure what all the great reviews are all about?

Although the fish I had was not quite done in the center, it was taken off the tab, plus I received a take home dessert of my choice. we have eaten here many times, but do... More
