The restaurant was already was packed at 6pm on a Saturday day night. This restaurant offers great views and great outdoor seating (in warmer months). Our service started out a little slow, but the waiter improved over time. Two of us ordered to George Banks scallops which were cooked perfectly. Two ordered to the lemon sole, which was cooked nicely... More

It might be impossible to have a bad experience at the Boathouse. The restaurant is comfortable, the staff seems to want you there and the food is delicious.

We had a party of 8, 4 couples. Everyone was pleased with apps, soups, meals and drinks. It is very pricey, but tastefully done. The seafood chowder is amazing and has a wonderful kick of spices in it. We went in October, so they had fall specials. A Great Pumpkin martini!! Have one early on and one later for dessert....

Good food, friendly service. Lots of parking also. Enjoy watching the sailboats on the river at sunset.

Great water front dining. The Sea Food Stew was one of the best we have ever eaten. Started with Lobster Fritters, was not impressed, very salty. The rest of the evening was absolutely perfect. Our server was very pleasant, friendly and attentive.

This is a fantastic location, up high affording great views, arrived for a business function before dark and experienced a gorgeous sunset. Drinks were very good, we all had heavy appetizers which I must say I was disappointed in. Lots of fried selections such a calamari, lobster fritters....all of which tasted very salty. They had a kielbaski special which in... More

We have heard about this restaurant over time but didn't realize how good it really was. We may be only confirming the obvious, but this is a great destination/special event restaurant! The view of the Bay are terrific even when the fog is rolling in! From appetizers to entrees we found the service friendly, prompt and delightful. The offerings were... More

We had a meeting with our banker to review various issues the Boat House. The service and food were very good. Jason, the GM, introduced the new chef and asked us to taste a new bread pudding they were considering for the menu. It was great and light. It did offset the field green and lobster salad I had to... More

Always looking for new places to eat while in Providence. This was a bit of a drive but sooo worth it!!! Lobster fritters and lobster roll were amazing and hands down, the best I've ever had. The ambiance, the courteous staff, the views all wrapped up to make a perfect lunch. I highly recommend you eat here. For an upscale... More
