Immediately greeted by a friendly waiteperson. She suggested a drink if the day which was a volka type punch. It was very good. The soup and sandwich combo is... More

We enjoyed the food and service at The Boat house tonight. A strong rain storm came through Hawley this afternoon and knocked out power for 2 hours. When we went to the restaurant, they informed us immediately that the computer was still not working for charge cards but it would not be a problem. The waiter, Eric, was very busy... More

We had a good meal at the Boat House. You would expect that it would be hard to find good food in such a small town, but you would be wrong. My daughter's sushi was good, with lots of crab. My wife's blackened chicken salad was delicious. My son's burger was very good, and so was my signature burger. Even... More

We had a very nice dinner at the Boat House. Service was good, as was the food. We had the beer cheese pretzel sticks followed by a selection of salads and sandwiches. The cheese with the pretzels was tasty. Sandwiches and salads were all good -- our group's favorites were the sides (Old Bay fries and onion rings). Appetizers were... More

Once again, had a great meal. It was too hot today to sit outside. The staff is always so friendly. This time I had the soup and sandwich combo and my husband had the grilled chicken which was more like a Caprese-like sandwich. He loved it. Food was hot, beers were cold. We will be back soon

The covered deck is a nice option for a warm breezy day, also because a little rain can pop up at any time. The inside area was very nice with dining and bar area nicely decorated but we chose the outside dining. The food was good and not your average presentation, service very good. I think American fair selection with... More

I have been to this location for dinners in the past and left with a full belly, and smiles. This is my first time for lunch here, and it is busy. Lunch starts at 11 AM so plan to arrive accordingly. We waited a brief ten minutes and brought to our table. We started with a calamari appetizer, and drinks.... More

The salad is served family style and the house dressing is SO GOOD. Service is attentive and staff was pleasant. It's right on the lake and there is easy boat dock access.

The food is great, portions are good size, and the atmosphere is great. It can get a little loud when its very busy, but if its nice out you should opt to sit outside. Much quieter. We go here for every special occasion!
