Not nearly enough room to say all that went wrong, plus the number of people turned away was shocking. Just because the day started out cloudy, the restaurant elected to not open their upstairs patio - and they lost a ton of business on a beautiful evening. Top that off with the absolute inexperience and general lack of hospitality of... More

1st time to try this restaurant and i find it very cozy and the servers are very accommodating. They check on us often if we need anything. The food servings are huge and very tasty. We will definitely come back.

We had company from out of town so decided to try the Boathouse. The food was average, took forever for the food to arrive. A few of us thought they lost our order. For fish and chips were ok but not a great value for the money. Do not need to return soon as there is plenty more restaurants in... More

Beautiful day to sit on the roof top patio (why is their floor sticky?). Arrived by 5:30 to get a table with shade. Our server (Julianne) was excellent! Cod & chips good, chop chop salad (salmon & 4 prawns) also good although the vinaigrette dressing was creamy? The menu doesn't identify dishes that are gluten free or could be prepared... More

Great view and fun atmosphere. I had the BBQ special with salmon, shrimp and a scallop. Amazing food design but my salmon was a bit dry. The waitress was there at all the right times and always knew what to say. Overall, great visit.

It took a long while to get our food and it was not very busy in the restaurant. Good food but pricey for what you get. . Location handy being close to the Pier for out of town Company to enjoy.

The location is superb and the rooftop patio and the dining area have beautiful views. The patio upstairs is great for a warm summer day or evening but they seem understaffed and as a result you will feel the service impacted. The waiters have to clean up the tables?? - they do not have bussers. This makes the waitress come... More

I thought I would give this restaurant a second shot after trying it awhile ago and having a bad meal. Didn't think it could get worse. Fish was AWFUL it was cooked OK just the quality of fish was bad. If you want good seafood run as far away from this place as you can get.

We visited this restaurant in early August- the seventh to be exact. We arrived in a panic as my two year old, who has Type 1 Diabetes, had a low glucose number- he needed to eat now. When I rushed in I ordered immediately and the food was there within five minutes. The wait staff were quite concerned. It was... More
