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

I have been to this restaurant a number of times through the years, not one of my favorites, but, we are local so we go now and again. BUT, never again! I have been there 2 times in the past month and both times the waitresses were so incredibly rude! This place does not have the best food and the... More

My husband and I came to the Boat House Restaurant while we were staying at Cove Haven resort. The food was excellent, especially the steaks. No need for steak sauce, it's good on it's own. The restaurant has it's own salad dressing for their salad which they suggested we try. So glad we did because it was absolutely delicious. So... More

excellent atmosphere, great place to catch a game. I will warn you do not order the tuna unless you like it dry and overcooked, everything else on the menu is pretty good.

Consistently good food no matter what you order. The only thing I did not like was the chicken marsala. It was a bone in breast. No one I know makes chicken marsala with the bone in. All other food I have ordered was good. Nice atmosphere. Wait staff a little slow. But they try to make it all right. Very... More

Always friendly and accommodating service. Food is good and although there is no direct view of the lake, it is only about 50 yds away. Nice back patio area too.

Honestly, I don't even remember the entrées I normally order from here because I'm always too excited to get the mashed potatoes. Best. Mashed. Potatoes. Ever. I stop here every time I visit family in Hawley, sometimes for a few drinks, other times for an outright dinner. I've never been disappointed with a meal here, but again I'm always so... More
