I feel strange writing this because a lot of our friends like this place. For us, it's not worth the risk of getting sub-par food. We've been there three times. Each time either my wife or I had a meal we considered not worth the expense. And, it's not a matter of money. We just feel that if we are... More

Our seafood dinners were excellent and our server was very attentive. We enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere. It made for a great evening. We will definitely dine there again when we are in the area. I especially enjoyed their house salad dressing and the fresh, crispy salad. Everything was delicious!

Very reasonably priced. The server that we had, Anna, was friendly witty and took care of our group in such a way that it made the whole experience alot of fun.

The night did not start well - we sat outside for drinks waiting for a table and the bartender ( Holly) was too busy having a personal conversation to acknowledge us. after ordering a scone round she overcharged us and yelled at us! The night was saved by a great meal and... More

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

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.
