A storm came in before we had our food. We were sitting out on the deck and it was blowing and raining sideways. Totally not the restaurant's fault. We had been upstairs earlier with the one man band ... That guy was good. So we got rained on by mother nature who cares? Free shower after 90 + degree weather.... More

The restaurant is built into an old boathouse right at a spot where a hurricane cut a breech through the dune to the Intercoastal Waterway. It is an interesting build with lots of marine archetype and artifacts. It's a typical beach restaurant with lots of seafood on the menu. But that's why we go to the beach-to eat seafood. We...

The food was overpriced and mediocre at best. We were seated on the enclosed porch at the back of the restaurant which was very noisy. The service was very slow and food quality poor. As a starter I ordered 3 oysters at $3 per oyster. I was told that they were of medium size. One of the three was smaller... More

Visited the area for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Had a Thanksgiving day reservation for this place. My wife and daughter had the traditional thanksgiving meal and I opted for the fresh catch of the day instead. I got the blackened Atlantic Salmon with thanksgiving sides, it was pretty darn good! Would definitely come back on a regular night to see... More

This was my 3rd visit to the Boathouse and it was great again. Fresh seafood, attentive service, reasonable prices, a very good wine list, valet parking, out door seating, raw oysters, etc............! What more do you need other than friends or colleagues to join you? Go here and enjoy!

We decided to give this a try. There were 4 of us plus a very lively 1 year old. The atmosphere was really enticing. Our server was amazingly friendly and knew everything about each and every part of their menu. While te concentration is seafood there are other items as well. Everything we ordered was prepared exactly as we would... More

Ten family members dined here on a Friday night. Our server, Allen, was excellent - personable, efficient, and attentive without being overbearing. The menu offers a good variety of seafood, with something for the land lovers as well. A nice feature on the menu is a sort of "build your own" seafood option. You choose from several types of fresh... More
