From good beer to Mexican food you can expect to be happy when you leave. It is located on the Arkansas River's edge and provides a lively atmosphere.

OK. As a local, I try to support all local businesses and as much as I try to go eat and drink/hangout at other places in town, I always find myself at the Boathouse. Sometimes service is better than others, but what it boils down to is this - The servers and bartenders seem to really enjoy working there and the people they work with. It's nice to go somewhere where this is evident and it's fun to watch and be part of. Sometimes we go just to drink, and sometimes we only eat, and others we eat and drink. No matter what we go there for, we always leave with smiles on our faces and satisfied. Sit by the river, at the bar, outside or wherever, and engage in conversation with the staff and have a great time. We always do. Want a recommendation? Try a drink made with some of their infused spirits, just ask the bartender to make something special- you won't be disappointed.

On a recent visit to Salida we stopped by the Boathouse as it was recommended by a friend. I'm thankful for the recommendation as it was a pleasant experience. It right on the Arkansas River and has a great view over river activities. We had the con queso and chip appetizer and the Gringo Tacos. Food was delicious and the service was great. Can't wait to visit the Boathouse again.

Oh yeah, and the food is not bad either. Recently sat there for a few hours on a Sat. and watched college football, drank beer and enjoyed to conversations with locals and the staff, especially the bartender (Jill?)

This place was busy all day- we finally went late in the evening around 9pm. We waited about 15 minutes for a table. I love the atmosphere and the people are nice. Ordered the fish tacos and they were very good. My husband loved his BLT sandwich - talk about a heart attack- it was overloaded with bacon. The salsa is good so the chips and salsa are great to order for an appetizer. Our waitress was friendly and worked really hard. Would definitely come back again and order the fish tacos but next time I will request a river side table- it would be worth the wait.
