“Great setting, stick to beer and wine”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Great setting on the docks....perfect view for a sunset, and to relax before dinner.

Mixed cocktails questionable. Stick to beer and wine.

“A great place to relax after work and before dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

While on a business trip to Burlington I stopped by the boathouse with co-workers and suppliers prior to dinner in town. We grabbed a beer at Splash, the small bar in the lower level, and walked to the edge of the dock. There are many comfortable chairs there that can be moved, and the five of us pulled the chairs in line Corona-commercial-style looking out over Lake Champlain. It's a great location for watching the ferries and pleasure boats sail in and out of the harbor, and very, very relaxing. Lake Champlain is clean enough that you aren't inundated with rotting fish smell, and the selection of local and varied beers will satisfy even the most critical beer enthusiast. There were also no lake flies or mosquitos. An hour or two at the boathouse makes for an enjoyable break from the strings of meetings and business discussions.

#1, on Lake Champlain, many boats, views, small nergitic groups. Friendly bar with excellent drinks. Owner watches everything. Middle prices. There is a Burger stand to save money inside the Boathouse
