Ate here saturday, our first visit. Would have been an excellent review but one of the steaks was cold. Staff sorted & after that no complaints. Due to the steak issue we were given a discount. staff were great & nothing too much trouble. Would go again & the fact that it was fully booked says something of the quality of the place. If you like seafood you must try.

Peel is building a great reputation as a good night out and The Boatyard is a huge contributor to that. A mainly seafood based menu is complimented by enough meat and vegetarian options to appeal to most tastes. The restaurant appears to attract a more well-to-do clientele than others meaning that the atmosphere is very adult.

Fabulous food in a great restaurant was unfortunately let down by less than great service. Our order of Pork Fillet was interpreted as Pollock by the waitress of european origin, resulting in a delay in our main course arriving. Then when the bill arrived this didn't correctly represent what we had ordered. There only seemed to be one waitress who knew what she was doing, but on a busy Thursday night she cant be expected to be everywhere. Get the service right and this place will be awesome.

We really enjoyed our visit to the Boatyard. The service was excellent and the food very tasty and well presented. The menu offered a good variety with some more unusual choices. If you like fish then you must try this while on the Island.

We are regulars at this cheerfully run restaurant overlooking the marina.

At every visit we find it maintains good, consistent standards.

Resident or holidaymaker this place is well worth a visit.

Decided to try out the boatyard having previously eaten at their other two restaurants, Tanroagan and The Swiss House which were both very good. Was not let down at all! The place is beautifully decorated in a vintage sea theme and everything they do has their own personal touch. The bread bins with homemade bread in were impressive and the butter came in a cute sardine tin. We came to try out the queenie festival specials on offer the evening we went and were very impressed. The seafood sharing platter we ordered was so tasty and the batter was surprisingly really light and crispy. Our mains were absolutely amazing! I ordered off the queenie specials menu and had queenie and hake thai green curry which was a fab take on the thai classic, which is one of my favourite dishes in the world, my friend had the whole lobster with new potatoes and hot garlic sauce which was so beautifully cooked, i had to stop and savour the taste when testing out the dish. To top it off the waitress we had was very friendly and polite and nothing was too much trouble , dont know her name but she had long blonde hair possibly with extensions, who we made sure to give a top to at the end of the meal. Would recommend this place to anyone and will be back for more lobster soon. Thank you for a wonderful meal!
