We were a large group and they accomadated us nicely. Right by the lake. Not all windows of the restaurant have a lake view. They have an outside area, but it was too cold to sit outside. Service was sufficient, very nice, but I was missing a few items to make it more enjoyable, like more often drink service and... More

So glad we stopped here for dinner! The food was delicious, hot and served in a reasonable amount of time. We had a perky blonde waitress who told us we could have whatever we wanted when I asked for an item on the lunch menu. She nor the restaurant won't be forgotten !

We noticed crab cakes on the menu which sparked our appetites. Our waitress told us many people order them and say they really like them. If you know what a good crab cake is DON'T order them. The other food that people were ordering looked good.

This is a top notch place to eat and bring the entire family. It is definitely one of the places you want to eat when in the Lake Ariel area. Service was great and food very tasty.

If you are visiting the Lake Wallenpaupack area, this is a great restaurant to try. Run by the same family which runs both Woodloch Pines and Woodloch Springs, the Boat House offers an enjoyable dining experience in a casual environment. The drinks are ample, the food is delicious and the staff is very personable and attentive. Don't over order appetizers... More

This is the first time we have been at the Boathouse this year. We actually didn't go in the summer since they do not take reservations & the wait on the weekend can be very long (in many cases over an hour). My husband & I were in PA for a long weekend & went to the Boathouse Monday evening.... More

There were 4 people in our party. We were seated right away. Menu had a very nice selection, but the special on this Friday night was prime rib. We each ordered the prime rib. All of us were very happy with the flavor and tenderness of our meal. We will definately return! Our server was friendly and attentive.

I almost left. I was seated and no one even acknowledged me for ten minutes. Not a hello. Not a glass of water. Nothing. I felt invisible. And to make matters worse the table behind me had a screeching child that was going right through me. Finally my waiter came and apologized for the wait. He took my order and... More

90% of the food here is excellent and we will always go back, however, keep in mind that their nachos are covered in sweet chili. Almost repulsively sweet chili. Like they poured a bag of sugar over the plate. Their potato skins are to die for and their salads very good and filling, just shy away from the nachos. Their... More

My wife and I had dinner here the other night. The atmosphere is pleasant enough although the usual pop music in the background is a very difficult thing to avoid these days. It's everywhere and is annoying. The food was quite good. I had the Blackened Swordfish over garlic risotto - delicious. She had the Kitts Island salad - also... More
