My wife and I popped into this Riverside Restaurant on our first night in Canada and had Fish & Chips (the traditional Friday night meal it seems). The portions were huge, very well cooked and tasty. We had every intention of returning but found the Queens Guard which was a short walk instead of having to drive over the river... More

I will totally be returning! I´m a waitress and I´m the first to admit I´m super hard to please. This place is amazing! The patio is beautiful and the waitress was incredible. I went with my husband and we had the bruschetta pizza and poutine - we weren´t super hungry. Honestly some of the best food I´ve ever had! The... More

We seated immediately and the waitress was right on top taking our orders. Drinks arrived and food started coming out really quick. Well the food was superb. I had the... More

An older restaurant and building. The food was very good. I had spaghetti. The sauce was not Ragu. It took 6 hours to prepare and it was fantastic. Our waitress was very nice and explained the history of the restaurant along with the different chefs employed.

We just happened to drive by The Boat House on our way between one place and another. We thought we'd stop back for the early bird special breakfast. I'm really glad we did. The service was excellent and the food was very good. There is plenty of free parking which is a bonus for the Niagara Falls area. Just a... More

My husband and I come into Niagara Falls (his home town) at least once a year. The Boathouse has traditionally been our gathering place for family and friends year after year, since we have a friend who is friends with the owner. After this last experience, however, we will NOT be back. Funny that I had posted this review weeks... More

I would recommend the BOATHOUSE to anyone going out for dinner with family / friends or just stopping in for a drink after a hard days work. I... More
