Awesome hang out - beautiful setting

This was a terrific place to hang with friends. Sit at the bar ...at a table outside with a lake view....or inside if you prefer. We sat at the bar (to avoid possible raindrops that did not come.) We were dressed very casually . Others arrived in business attire. The staff was friendly. The... read more

My husband and I were looking for somewhere to eat seafood. We had heard of the Boathouse but in never had gone before... What a mistake!

The view of the lake, outdoor seating and variety on the menu make this like a vacation spot! I took my Mother recently for dinner and had the fish special which was excellent. I also love the spicy shrimp and grits. For a low key dinner, the wood fired pizza is excellent. And it's always nice to have a glass... More

I had heard so much about The Boathouse we decided to give it a try for Mother's Day. We were hoping to get an outdoor spot but even though we had reserved weeks in advance and the place wasn't totally full that didn't happen.

We just celebrated Mother's Day and our Anniversary at the Boathouse at Sunday Park. Couldn't have had a better time! Everything was delicious! We were stuffed! Had to share a dessert! The House Special was Grilled Mahi Mahi with artichoke hearts and asparagus. Wife enjoyed a fillet mignon cooked to perfection. We enjoyed sipping on our Patio Punches and watching... More

My husband and myself had brunch yesterday at The Boathouse at Sunday Park. To start our experience, the greeting staff was the best. There is a great view if you sit outside on the deck: boats, ducks, water, etc.. Our waiter, Billy, started out being pretty good. Not bringing drinks for 20 minutes during our dinner so they arrived when... More

Calypso band the night we went. Great food, good portions, very attentive staff. Great views, outdoor fire pits, and generally relaxed atmosphere. Fish tacos were filling, pizza was awesome too. Drinks, dinner for two, dessert, band and atmosphere all for around $70. Great night.

It was cold and raining when we went, so we couldn't sit outside. The view of the lake from inside is limited. We had lobster bisque, crab/artichoke dip, and raw oysters for appetizers. The bisque was wonderful. It had a very strong lobster flavor which we loved. The oysters were fresh, shucked properly and had a nice sweet flavor. They... More
