“Nice views, good food...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

There are so many great restaurants from which to choose in this area. Based on that number, the Boathouse on the Bay was very good but ordinary. The one outstanding food item was the hot sourdough bread!!! Our the fish was fresh and good; our waiter was superb, and the staff very accommodating.

“Perfect for a special dinner or drinks with friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Every time we visit, whether for a special event or to stop in for drinks with friends, we find exactly what we want in menu selection, service and ambiance! So versatile yet always what we expect! Never disappointed in the service or the seating.
We love this restaurant!

“Great Sushi spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

This new restaurant, a site that previously housed McKenna's, is SO much better. The food, service, drinks are outstanding. And I love the new menu. The sushi is excellent and I would recommend it to anyone in the long beach / seal beach area.

“Good food and good location on the Bay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

I'm not saying the food was inexpensive because it is a little on the pricey side but everything we had to eat was delish.
Music rolled in about 8 PM; the band was quite good.
The restaurant is right on the bay (Alamitos Bay?) and wow was the marine traffic interesting. Havivng cocktails out on the patio is a must for early evening. The views just don't get any better.
