This was the first time we had eaten at The Boathouse but it will not be the last. We ate outside & it was a beautiful evening & the sunset was glorious. The service was great & the food was delicious.

Stopped by for a drink and appetizers before dinner. Had the oysters. Very fresh. Bartender was very attentive, and a good selection of Bourbon's. Left there for dinner at Bongos (YUK!! Went Downhill)> Should have eaten at Boathouse
