My husband and I had lunch on the deck at the Boatime House. The view outside is beautiful. It was a hot day and had no umbrella for our table. It was to hot with the sun burning down on us. I had Fried clams that I must say we're delicious and served piping hot as they should be. My... More

If you're looking for a place to grab a relatively inexpensive bite on the water in Falmouth, Boathouse is the spot. After a horrible experience at the Flying Bridge ending with an abrupt exit, our family ended up paying half as much as we would have for food that was so delicious. From steak tips, to the fried fish, and... More

First time in Falmouth, the Boat house was recommended for the cocktails and food. We had a great time, the staff was very courteous and friendly! We were not disappointed.

My sister and I had a fabulous lunch at the Boathouse. We split a bowl of steamers, a lobster roll and a small salad. Everything was delicious. It was, by far, the best lobster roll I've ever eaten. The roll was stuffed with claw and knuckle meat (more than 1/2 lb), very, very lightly dressed with mayo. Yummy. The hostess... More

Having visited for drinks a day earlier and liking the look of the food we decided to go here for Sunday dinner. We asked the hostess for an outside table for 4 and were shown to a table for 3 no more than 2 feet from the very loud speaker being used by the night's live music act. Before we... More

Went here with my girlfriend because I believed it would be a nice place to eat. The food was very good and the drinks were just as comparable. Our service was very slow though and he seemed high the entire time. Even forgot what we ordered for drinks at one point. I would definitely recommend this place again but be... More

Asked the locals where to find some nice seafood place and they suggested a place that we looked into and decided elsewhere. The choice we found on the Internet was the Boathouse. We got there before the patio opened and sat inside. The server was great, and the selection of food hit the spot. If you are a beer aficionado,... More

This year the Boathouse made some fantastic changes to their outside deck and bar area. It is huge. They have very good live music every Sunday with a typically nice crowd. Great place to watch the boat traffic. It is directly across from the Island Queen dock as well as some of the most beautiful yachts in the harbor.

I know these places have a short season to make their money, but you are only paying for the view here, so if your going to eat there make sure you get a table outside. The food is terrible, the steamers were awful, mouth full of sand in every bite. We told the bartender and he responded, I'll tell the... More
