Good food and good service!

The boathouse has very good food at good prices. From the lounge and outside deck you can watch the sunset on the lake. It's comfortable, relaxed dining, with lots of choices. Pleasant servers. I keep coming back here whenever I'm in the area.

Beautiful restaurant, excellent service, delicious food. We stopped in here last night on a whim. What a great decision! Our waitress, Laura, was so friendly and funny and totally on top of everything. What a nice change from the norm lately. Everything was delicious. Not an inexpensive place but definitely worth every penny. I highly recommend this place. Very romantic... More

This well loved restaurant is always busy. The food is excellent and the service thoughtful. It is owned by the same folks who own Woodloch Pines and the same high standards prevail.

The restaurant has a pleasant, comfortable decor, good wine selection, and excellent seafood. Good for families or couples. Nice bar area as well.

My boyfriend and I are vacationing at Lake Wallenpaupack for a week and decided to try the Boathouse Restaurant. We were seated within 10 minutes (no problem) but a waitress didn't come for another 15 to take our drink order. She came back 10 minutes later with drinks and then another 10 minutes with bread and asked for our order.... More

Nice décor greets you as you enter and veer toward your left to the bar area. The outdoor seating is small but has the best view of the lake in the distance but we opted for the roomier interior area. The staff was exceptionally friendly and the drinks were perfectly priced and substantial. The menu, we were informed by Benny,... More

Stopped here on our drive around the lake. We sat out side in the beautiful sunshine. Had a punch drink that was very good, my sandwich was large and delicious. I forget the name had meat, onions, Swiss cheese...a tad of horseradish...OMG it was good and plentiful...took half home. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. A very perky attitude. Thanks...

We decided to have dinner on a Saturday night in April 2015. The parking lot was full, so we circled around and were lucky to find someone leaving. We were surprised to get the last table available for two. Many of the people waiting were waiting for tables of 4 or more. I must admit, I thought the Chicken Caesar... More

Kids took me for Mother's Day, we've been before over the years. It has become worse rather than better. Some years ago they added Timmy's chili to the previously delicious nachos and ruined it. The chili is always dry and nasty and beans do not belong with nachos! Okay, I ordered the chicken francais and was grossly disappointed! Would have... More
