Lovely view and delicious food

We celebrated my husband's birthday with dinner on their outside deck, overlooking the lake. The view was wonderful! Seafood dinners were moderately portioned and delicious. I wish we had gone an hour later and closer to sunset, as there was no shade on the deck (no umbrellas on the tables) and it... read more

Stopped through with friends for a birthday drink. We were greeted by the hostess and decided to just go to the bar. The atmosphere was great. The bartenders were pleasant and efficient. There was a nice crowd at the bar right before sunset. We tried the blackberry Mojito and it was recommended to try the blueberry Mojito. Both were delicious... More

To start with, all of the staff were wonderful. Didn't see anything but smiles and the desire to make sure you had a great dining experience. I thought I was going to have to dine alone but my friend was able to make it after all. When asking where I wanted to sit, I asked for a view of the... More

Had a very nice dinner at the Boathouse - inside. It's strange. This restaurant has the best outside seating in the area right on the water but no umbrellas for their tables so people were moving inside to eat due to the hot sun. It would make sense to invest in some umbrellas and this would be a great spot... More

Went here with my family on a Friday night. Eating out on the deck by the water was awesome. I had the Crab and Asparagus Pizza and it was delicious. There was a live band playing some tropical music. They also had wonderful desserts.

Dinner at The Boathouse at Sunday Park is an evening well spent. We usually begin our dinner at the tiki bar while waiting for our outdoor seating. The wait can be lengthy but is usually 20 or so minutes. The tiki bar area is fun and just adjacent to the dining area. Once seated you can expect a very good... More

We have been patrons of the restaurant for many years. We just visited again the other day and was amazed. Courtesy, quick response, as well as the wait staff could not have been more attentive. A varied menu. Indoor and outdoor dining was available. We chose to eat inside which was very comfortable. We did have reservations and were recognized... More

We attended a rehearsal dinner in their upstairs room and WOW, what a view!!! This place is absolutely gorgeous! The food was wonderful as well. Steaks and swordfish were on the menu and both were delicious. The two servers/bartenders that attended to us that evening were awesome! They went out of there way to get meals suitable for the two... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about the rehearsal dinner you attended. I am so glad you had a great experience! The view across the lake from the upstairs room (the Crow's Nest) is definitely one of my favorites, too. We hope to see you next time you are in the Richmond area. More
