4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This was our first time at the Boathouse and we would have appreciated better signage to the restaurant. We thought it too cool to sit outside so, at the suggestion of the very friendly hostess, opted for an upstairs window table as this was a special occasion. We would have been warmer outside. Not only were the ceiling fans on... More

Good place to go for outdoor dining. The views of the lake are great. The food is very well prepared and has a lot of flavor. The service was good. We have been there previously and would go again. This is not good food at a low price, it is great food which is worth the cost. Try it and... More

The Boathouse at Sunday Park in Brandermill, Midlothian, Virginia is a great place to go especially if you enjoy gourmet quality food at affordable prices and like to dine outside on the waterfront. You get the best of both worlds at the Boathouse. If you prefer to sit inside, the ambiance is equally inviting with a warm atmosphere, cozy surroundings... More

Just went to a wedding here yesterday and after the ceremony they had a luncheon in the Crows Nest of The Boathouse restaurant. The staff was terrific and the pre meal appetizers outstanding and generous. Our menu choice was an angus burger or crab cake sandwich which we both got. The meal was great and we can't wait to go...

If it is a special night and you are ordering lobster it is often over cooked and tough. Not at the Boathouse. It was perfect and reasonably priced. Everyone at our table enjoyed their meal which included sea scallops and shrimp and grits. Excellent venue for seafood.....enjoy!

You can dine in or outside overlookingthe water. Fine dining, pieced accordingly. Seafood especially good. I recommend the crabcakes. My granddaughter and date and friends ate there before the prom, this Spring.

Tasty drinks, lively atmosphere and great waiter. Zucchini chips and oysters were enjoyed as appetizers. Southern fried seafood was served with corn/jalapeno hush puppies (only complaint not enough corn or jalapeno). Fried seafood sampler and chicken chesapeake were very good. Pizzookie and warm bread pudding were a perfect ending to a lovely meal.

The Boathouse Is a decent place. BUT, they messed up our reservation badly. BUT the manager apologized and comped a couple appetizers. Everyone was very friendly and sincere in their apologies. Food was very good, service friendly and very slow.REAL SLOW. The view from their deck is nice. This is an ok place to go if you like good food... More

We enjoyed our visit! Resturant is on the lake and very nice. Food was very good, if slightly pricey. Good seafood selection, bar, and desserts. We went for early dinner and had a lovely time. Nice, quiet dining room. Also outdoor bar on the lake.

Thank Criss F
