“Order the soup and salad bar. It's really good and enough to eat”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

Charley's Boat House Grill was just across the street from our room at the Outrigger resort.
We found the salad bar to be the best thing about this restaurant.
Our order of shrimp and scallops were too heavily buttered.
The portions were a little small too.
It was definitely pricy for what you get.
Order the soup and salad bar. It's really good and enough to eat.

“Outdated style, only average and you will wait in line”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

They do not take reservations for parties of less than 6 so you will have to wait - no bar but you can order drinks. The decor is old. They do have a salad bar but it's pricey with average options if that's all you order. The food was good but nothing was outstanding or special, and they were out of everything the house is known for - mostly meat like prime rib which is weird to be known for beef when your name is Boat House. The table service was pleasant. The view was the bay

“Awesome salad bar!”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

Big salad bar, pretty nice menu at a decent price. I had the prime rib, the salad bar comes with the meal. We've been here over 10 times now in the past year and never had a bad meal. Yes, during the season it's busy but what place isn't. We'll keep coming back!

“Good Experience”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

We went with a group of ten. We were seated exactly on our reservation time. The service was great. Jen Glen is a good waitress. All ten meals were very good. My prime rib was as good as I have had in a long time. The deserts and specialty drinks were excellent. A good place to go.

“Not worth the money or the wait”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

Overpriced & I wasn't very impressed with the waiter we had. They rave about their salad bar, but it was nothing special. Would not recommend.
