“New Menu”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

New owners mean a new menu that we wanted to check out for lunch. Went on a Sunday afternoon and ate outside to take advantage of the beautiful view. Our server came over and forgot to introduce himself; we had to ask his name. He was polite and seemed to know the menu. We had the bacon and cheese hamburger, fish and chips and chicken club with sweet potato fries. The fish portion was long and lightly battered-very tasty and the fries were crispy. The burger was big and delicious and the chicken club was fresh and great with the tomato and lettuce. The sweet potato fires although tasty were soft and wilted. Overall we were satisfied with the three choices and would order the same again. A nice place with a great view and live entertainment on weekends.

“Just OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

Located near the boat harbour was an asset. The food quality did not meet the pricey tag. The servers were forgetful. Chicken salad without the chicken & the beer with orange but without it; of course, they offered you back when asked. Forget one order until we asked for it again. That was only Thursday dinner. In case re- visit is due to the view but not the service nor the food.

“Excellent Service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

Touring Ottawa friends Paul & Irene through Midland today, we ventured into The Boathouse Eatery.
Upon arrival we were greeted by several wonderfully friendly gals, and we were immediately seated on the patio.
Our server Natalie was pleasant, talkative and genuine.
Another server delivered a pitcher of beer and professionally poured it into 4 chilled glasses!
Natalie returned with a tray of Dips & Chips; a combination of pita and corn chips, and a salsa-like dip covered in melted cheese, I think we licked the bowl, LOL.
The food was great, atmosphere was lively, service was excellent, and the view marvelous!
A highly recommended addition to any Midland visit.

The food was alright, the wait staff were exceptional and the spacious outdoor patio appreciated. Great location to grab a bite before or after a trip on the Miss Midland.
