Convenient to the hotel where we were staying. Great bread, good chowder, but my scallops were so overcooked, they could have bounced.

The food was very good. The prices may be a bit high (perhaps not). The service was very good. The atmosphere was very good.

Had a good dinner here. Ordered a salad with salmon. Came with delicious yeast rolls, too. Quiet. Clean. Would come back.

Very helpful staff. This is a typical American diner. Food and drink was of a good quality. Served our needs as somewhere close to the hotel to eat

Hi I ate there last night and I was shown the menu. I think it is better for lunch or small plate for late night. They have dinner type tables for their booths. Nautical/New England decor. I had the coconut shrimp- looked like they were frozen very little taste and a weird dipping sauce. I had the Cod dish- came... More

We sat at the bar for a bit while we waited for our reservation. Great bartender who didn't stop. What a hard worker! Delicious Bloody Mary too. Our waitress was friendly and helpful. Dinner came out quickly and was hot and tasty. I would definitely recommend the Boathouse.

I was there in a Monday night and there was trivia which... More

I wish I remembered the name of our server! She was fantastic and funny! We were there for our 15th Wedding Anniversary and took our time with appetizers, dinner and dessert (if this review gets back to her, she might remember who we were). I found The Boathouse here on Trip Advisor. It was then recommended by several in the... More
