Good food good dining experience. Our family celebrated my wife's birthday dinner there and the staff was great helping us. The owner came by to make sure everrything was going good. Our party was 15 people including teenagers who enjoyed the food especially.

We dined at the Boathouse on a recommendation, and all 4 of us were delighted with the patio seating, the excellent food, and accommodating service. My husband is still talking about the delicious onion soup, and his steak. We will return soon.
