“Delicious tea and scones in a delightful setting”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Had a wonderful lunch here. Soup and sandwich were excellent along with fresh tea and a delicious scone with jam and cream. The setting along the river is lovely and we could eat outside in the shade. Waitress was friendly and helpful. Service was excellent. We were too full to try their fresh ice cream but will go back another time.

“A lovely setting for Lunch or Tea . . .”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Totally enjoy having lunch or a "Tea" with special friends at The Boathouse Tea Room in Guelph, Ontario. Lovely setting on the Speed River. Weather permitting, if one chooses, sitting outdoors is an option, If you wish to just have a treat - their desserts - especially ice cream cones - so many flavours form which to choose. Another treat is to walk a short distance across Gordon Street and enjoy a stroll through The Royal City Park . . . wonderful!

“Lovely spot by the river”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We had a really nice lunch at the Boathouse. The portions were ample, tasty and well-presented. The waitress was very nice and efficient. The location is wonderful, especially as the weather just happened to be fantastic. We would definitely return.

“Great little specialty Restaurant”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

The Boathouse is a piece of Guelph history and now run as a tea room. It is right by the water giving a country atmosphere right by the water. My wife and I had the “Gluten Free” tuna melt with a spiced tea and enjoy it very much.
