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?

The service was fantastic, we didn't wait long to be served and the place was packed. Our meals were very good, in fact, excellent. 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

Had dinner at the Boat House Restaurant. I had the lobster mac & cheese. I have to say it was quite good. It was a chilly night, light rain and this was the perfect meal for the night. The restaurant was quiet that night, not many tables filled, though we did get there a bit late. The service was good... More

Food is hit and miss here. Ordered fish and chips and fish arrived in shape of triangles. Fish was extremely thin and sides around fish were so hard it was impossible to chew. A friend told me this is what Groton's frozen fish is like. Just don't order fish and chips. Restaurant should be ashamed to serve anything like this.... More

After checking out the reviews for dinner in the area, we chose Boat House. Unfortunately, it was raining so the whole "sit outside and enjoy the lake view" was not an option. Our server was attentive and the experience was pleasant. The food was delicious from the bread (warm fresh rolls) to the salad and entrees. We had crab cakes... More

This is a charming restaurant offering good food reasonably priced in a relaxed setting. The porch seems really nice for a summer brunch or early dinner as it has a nice view of the nearby lake and musical performances in the evening. Since we were a large group they could only accomodate us inside. The crab cakes and scallops were... More

I have had dinner and lunch there several times and would rate this a good restaurant. Could use a little more variety of food selections at the higher end.

Went for lunch. Large portions. Ham and cheese great. Ruben was very good. Service was excellent. Soups were hot and tasted. Chicken tenders were cooked just right. You should go there. Eat outside see the lake. We ate inside by mistake.
