Need More Bartenders, Food Great

I am a frequent guest of the Boathouse. I enjoy the setting and the food is great. Bar service inside and outside on the deck is lacking. They need more bartenders!

Great outside porch overlooking large lake. Springtime, summer or fall are great outdoors. Food reasonably priced. Service at times can be slow but wait staff tries hard to accommodate customers.

The view is worth the price-ALMOST. I got the seafood platter-didn't want fries.Got a salad on the side instead. It was a tiny handful left after that-tiny piece of fish, 2 oyst.2shrimp, 2 crab?hushpuppies. TINY.

Relaxing on the deck or in one of the rocking chairs while viewing the boats on Swift Creek Resoivour is one of the many nice things you can enjoy while sipping your favorite cocktail or enjoying some of the wonderful food that The Boathouse at Sunday Park offers. On cool nights/days you can also enjoy sitting by the outdoor fire... More

It was a beautiful night when we ate here. The sun was starting to go down. We ate on the outside deck. I have never eaten inside. The food was delicious! I wish the menu had a few lighter dishes though. I like fish filet that is light on sauce and sides.

The view is awesome! My favorite is brunch.The view from the deck is awesome. The kids loved the ducks. I loved the french toast (along with the kids).I want to go next time with my husband, just the two of us.

Waiting for sunset is worth the trip just to catch the last rays and a cool drink or three. Even though the place was packed the waitress did a great job of seeing to our needs.

we were very happy with this restaurant. The food was good and they had the best seafood in the area. The best part was the view. Right on the water. We enjoyed it with friends or it could be a nice place for date night. Will go again.
