“Good seafood”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Tasty and fresh seafood for fairly reasonable cost. I miss the days of all you can eat snow crabs, though.

“Food and venue good; service lacking”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Best part of our experience was the venue and a close second was the fish and chips. However the service was lacking. It took about 15 minutes for our server to take our drink order. When meal was served we had to ask for cutlery to no avail and finally had to get it ourselves. Server didn't come back to check on us. There were a lot of staff on duty so can only assume ours was new.

Finally, a note to our and all servers.
Please do not address your patrons as "dear". It is a term used in my grandparents days and is condescending, unprofessional and offensive.

“Mediocre at best.”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

House salad from a bag? the prices are far too high to be serving salad from a bag. Thai coconut curry chicken was overcooked, sauce lacked any flavor other than yellow curry powder. Coconut absent. Veggies fresh and el dente but lacked any seasoning.

There are much better dining options in Belleville.

Awesome patio!

Excellent tasty fresh fish. We ate on the balcony, lovely summer evening.
Service was wonderful. No complaints at all. We will visit again when we
are in Belleville.

“Hype doesn't always taste good”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

The Boathouse has a lot of fans locally, and this is obvious just about any evening when trying to find a parking spot within 100 metres of the place. It baffles me why the place is so attractive, unless one likes fish whose batter tastes of the grease in which it was cooked, limp "french" fries, watery cole slaw, rubbery scallops, or griddle-fried, salty crab cakes. Or perhaps it's the allure of the only waterside open-air patio in town: a patio generally overcrowded and downwind of fumes from passing motorboats. Its only saving grace is a somewhat eclectic variety of beer choices, a rarity in Belleville.
