“Great Riverside view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

The food was great and the service could not have been better. It was not overly crowded and was easy to find. After dinner, we took a leisurely stroll along the river walk.

“View of the river is killer”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

On a nice day it is fun to overlook the river while you have a cold drink and eat. I just though the food had to knock down the ranking.

“Menu wasn't what we expected for what we assumed was a Mexican restaurant.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Menu leaned more towards bar food. We were craving traditional mexican. The happy hour wings were tasty but the portion was smaller than anticipated; if we knew we would have just ordered the normal portion. We also had nachos; came with liquid cheese, I expect this from taco bell, but not a real sit down restaurant. I prefer real grated cheddar melted under a broiler. The place was busy so we weren't able to get a table overlooking the river. The food was fine, but I probably wouldn't go back. If we would have asked detailed questions when we ordered we probably wouldn't have been so disappointed when the food appeared.

“Enjoy Happy Hours @ The Boathouse!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

M-F 3-6PM Happy Hours here include $4 appetizers, $2-3 Draft & Bottle Beers.
As you sit in the bar at the long tables with the open air windows overlooking the Arkansas River you are able to drink, eat and view the activities on the river.

I enjoyed a spinach salad, an appetizer of carne tacos and beers for under $20!
A relaxed atmosphere, good food at reasonable prices are awaiting you at the Boathouse.

“Must stop for a beer with a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

They were busy, but we had very attentive service. Sat on indoor/outdoor patio with perfect views of the river.
Can't go thru Salida without a stop at this great place with tons of atmosphere! They also carry the local wines!
