Although we live nearby we’d never tried this place...we usually go to Schooner or Later because it’s more of a locals hangout, but the wait there was 1-1/2 hours. With Ballast Point right next door I can see why this place might get overlooked and...More

Our good friends invited us to spend New Years Eve with them at Boathouse on the Bay. Initially we were told it would be $95.00 per person, which I was okay with because it was supposed to include live music, a great meal and champagne....More

Great place for lunch or dinner right on Alamitos Bay. The food and service are always good and it is a great place to meet friends or have a date night.

Amazing busy place with patrons rotating in and out of the patio. Their staff accommodates the guest as quickly as possible. Some guests endure the late afternoon sun and some cannot cope. It’s a massive shuffle on demand. Our attendant was Alyssa. She was awesome!...More
