Nice place to eat in summer

Meals, service and especially the atmosphere were terrific. In spring, summer and fall, they have a very large elevated outdoor series of table with umbrellas where you can eat or you may wish to eat inside in a nice cozy decor.

What a wonderful spot. Sitting on the out door patio watching the boats come and go and having such great food made a perfect day. Talk about service there was no waiting and it was very busy this time of year with tourists and boaters coming in for a meal.

The food is always great, as is the staff. Have never had a bad experience, so always feel confident to suggest it when planning to eat out. It is lovely to sit and look out at the Bay.

Awesome deck, friendly service, love the atmosphere and live music. Food is good, beer is cold. Great place to hang out. Parked the boat at the dock and enjoyed our dinner outside with friends.

We visited a number of times this past summer. The salads are fresh and delicious. The hamburgers and fish are an excellent choice. The are many menu items under $20. A added bonus , we always found a spot ,to dock our boat ,at the Midland town dock next to The Boathouse Eatery.

Visited this eatery on Thanksgiving Monday, looked a little run down on first impressions, but the quality of the food made up for that. The service was excellent,
