Excellent Food and Service!

My family and I had dinner at the Boathouse and we were very impressed with the quality of the food and the service provided. If you are looking for a nice place to eat in this area, I would highly recommend.

Its a nice restaurant but definitely over rated. The atmosphere is great but the food is mediocre at best. I won't gone again..

For 2 people be prepared to pay over $100. Even though it was a holiday service was good & NOT overly extraordinary. Scenic view nice if sitting on the bottom level. So ask for this, or like any other seafood restaurant! Crab fritter was an excellent appetizer! Valet parking was a special touch!

Fun happy hour with great views and inexpensive drinks at the bar overlooking the water. Food is hit or miss but we just ate olives and limes and we're fine. :-)

Our group of 13 went to The Boathouse for a birthday dinner. Everyone loved their meals except the one person who isn't into seafood and ordered chicken - she said her dish was a little bland. I had the fried scallops and fried oysters and they were GREAT. We ordered creme brule since it was a special occasion and that... More

The pre dinner drink in the roof level bar was a great introduction to this outstanding restaurant specialising in sea food. We had a selection of starters and would recommend the calamari and oysters. The specials of various fish dishes including flounders stuffed with a crab cake were superb. Watching the sun setting over the water will be remembered for... More

I made a reservation for Mother's Day over a month ago because I knew out party of 11 would be difficult to accomodate if we waited too long. We had family in town and everyone loved their meal. The service was great, nice atmosphere, and good drinks! The valet parking was a great touch. We're already talking about when we... More

The staff was friendly and efficient. The food was delicious--all of our group of 6 were pleased. We sat on the porch and looked out on a peaceful marsh. The place was very full and a bit noisy. Nicely prepared sides.

The service was great. Great bartender. Beautiful sunset on the creek. Food was excellent. Ask to sit next to the water if possible.

Ate here for the first time in a few years last night. I remember it being really good a few years ago but was not impressed on this visit. I had a blackened fish dish - the fish was ok but kind of dry. It came with two sides. I wanted Mac and cheese but they charge an extra $5... More
