It was my husband's birthday and he loves seafood so we wanted to try a great seafood restaurant. I had read about the Boathouse location in Richmond and thought that the Hopewell location would be easier to get to from Williamsburg. It was a breeze...More

We had a reservation and they seated us right on time with barely a delay. Our waitress Ashlee was very nice and attentive. I did not like the half moon table for 5 people considering it was a buffet and I would have preferred a...More

I arrived around 7pm, without a reservation. Stopping to chat with the hostesses, she says "It's going to be a one hour wait, but you can take a seat at the bar if you'd like?" Plenty of room at the bar, and a full menu...More

The day was gloomy and overcast but the view was still nice. The meal as good but this Boathouse site has a ways to go to reach the level of the others sites, in my opinion. The service, however, was efficient and accurate but not...More

This is a great place to eat. It is right on the river and has a good view of the river. It offers outdoor seating as well. The service and food were excellent. Portions were good.

The staff here is really great, especially Wes behind the bar. The overwhelming positive takeaway is the view. Below the terrace the river bank falls away and two rivers converge. You basically have this amazing silent sprawl of water, green, and sky. The food is...More
