Wow! Great location overlooking the Saugatuck River in Westport on the second floor of the Saugatuck Rowing Club. I went there for a group lunch function and the view and the salmon were both excellent. They also had nice appetizers. They also have a Thursday Happy Hour with special drinks and appetizers. The new management and the new chef have greatly improved this spot. Best to go during daylight so you can appreciate the view.

On my way from Cape Cod to New Jersey, I stopped off for lunch with my mother. She took me to the Boathouse in Saugatuck, part of the Saugatuck sports club. The second floor restaurant has both a shaded outdoor terrace and an indoor dining room with large plate glass windows: both have terrific views of the Saugatick River. High ceilings, perfect air conditioning, excellent service...and the crab cake appetizer I got for lunch was nearly pure crab meat with just barely enough filler to hold a shape: tasty!

Food was very good but the service was terrible. Long delays being served and staff were unprofessional.
With the great food there is potential for this to be a much better restaurant.

Beautiful view very poor food. Salad had tasteless dressing. Soggy pasta tasteless and cold bolognese sauce. We won’t go back ever. Who’s the chef??

Finally able to get a weekend dinner reservation. Likely as Fairfield County tends to empty out in August. Plenty of parking on site. Restaurant upstairs in the rowing club. Decor that of a yacht club. Staff quite helpful. 7:30 PM reservation and seated on time. Elected to dine on the porch which overlooks the river - peaceful and quite nice. Decent but not extensive wine list. Prices moderate. Started with the seared tuna appetizer with wasabi potato salad. Excellent. Wife had branzino which she stated to be amongst the best entrees that she has had in recent memory. I had the seafood risotto special - plenty of seafood and risotto quite tasty. Service quite good. Will definitely return. Bottle of Rose', shared appetizer and two excellent entrees - approx $140 including tip. Not cheap but on a relative value scale of Fairfield County restaurants well worth it.
