We had 22 people for lunch after our outing plans got change. We called the Boat House and they said "come on over". When we arrived they were semi busy. 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

Went for late lunch after golf. Everyone very friendly. Sat out on deck and waitress turned up overhead fan for us. Good beer selection, pizza and wing specials, which were very good

Patio very nice by the river, excellent food for an excellent price, I would not mind paying premium prices at other Niagara Eateries if they would deliver excellent food , sorry to say many don't. The Boathouse is a relaxing dining experience, being an essential part of visiting Niagara Falls.

Great patio a little away from the busy downtown area. Pub food has always been great - fish and chips, one of our favourites, features a plentiful portion and is served hot. Cold beers and mixed drinks are welcome beverages. Frequented by lots of motorcycle enthusiasts on weekends with perferred parking by the patio. Weekdays, a little more accesable, makes... More
