“Better than average bar food, fun atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

Have heard that the restaurants had some hurdles the first month it was open but was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere, wait staff and food. Our waiter Kevin has to be one of the better waiters in the area, ver attentive to every detail, very pleasant. Our table shared several appetizers including the JR crab claws which were very good (ask for the sauce used for the onion rings-a better alternative to the sauce served with the crab claws). Ceasar salad was mediocre as was the onion rings and ceviche but the rib eye was very good. Coconut creme pie was OK but key lime pie is a better option. The oher meals looked very good, I have heard good things about the fish tacos and will have to try those next time. Good beer selections. Live music on weekends. This place has lots of potential!

“I was so looking forward to going to the Boathouse but left a little disappointed.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012 via mobile

The place was slammed with customers so we had to wait to be seated. 45 minutes later we were seated in the main dinning room. The music was a little loud so we ask to be seated in another room. Our waiter was very nice and found us another table. The food was ok but my biggest disappointment were the onion rings. The rings were small and the batter fell off the onions. The grilled and fried shrimp was very good. The cup of gumbo I had was not what you would get in Florida. No sign of any seafood was in the gumbo. I will good back after they they have had time to workout some of their food preparation.
