“One of my favorite waterfront restaurants in Naples”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

We often head over to The Boathouse for special events. The dining area is perfect for a group of friends celebrating a birthday or whatever and the atmosphere is fun, for the bayside location. There is something on the menu for pretty much everyone's differing tastes. The view is unequaled in most other restaurants and the entree offerings seem to be well-priced for the quantity on each plate. Almost always leave with a little carton of something leftover. Could be the best place in town to see any boatshows or parades, but you must make a reservation way in advance. I've been here many times and always enjoy another opportunity to eat here.

“Popular Place”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Seems this is a pretty popular place. I think we got one of the last available tables. The wait staff was overwelmed. They were working hard and nearly running from table to table, but were not able to provide the level of service you would expect for a place with $30 entrees and $10 drinks. That being said, we both liked our food and even ordered desert which was very good. Two more things to note: they had at least 1 server in training that night, so maybe service in the future will be better. And, I noticed when I got home that our bill had been credited with a nearly 10% "Summer Discount" but we were there in January - maybe that was to make up for the service? Good atmosphere, good food, good location. We would give it another try.

“Nice Place to Dine”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

When we arrived, the interior seating area was full, the bar was rocking, and so we opted for the quieter outdoor deck area overlooking the water which we enjoyed. A gas heater kept us warm since January evening was cool. The food was excellent; we shared the large seafood platter and ordered two salads and desert which was delicious. Our new waiter did fine, he got our dinner quickly and the check too. Thanks!

“Great View”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Great view of Gordon Creek. We eat there once each annual visit. Food prep tends to be slow, but with a full moon rising over the water, who cares? Better for fish than steak.

“Spouse’s Gem”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Upon arrival in Naples my spouse did some research and identified an interesting restaurant for our Sunday night dinner. A little more research and we decided to try The Boathouse Restaurant. It was a good decision on our part. We were very pleased with the selection.

Upon arrival, even with a busy restaurant, we were quickly seated on the outside patio our first choice of location. Our server came over quickly and greeted us. He reviewed some of the specials for us, took our drink order, and soon returned with our drinks. For entrées my spouse chose the Lite Broiled Platter and I selected the Broiled Seafood Platter. Prior to being served our entrees we shared a Caesar Salad. All items were well prepared, served appropriately, and quite tasty.

Our server was very friendly, knowledgeable, and very attentive. Throughout our dining experience he returned to check on how things were going and if we needed anything.

Our experience that evening was very enjoyable and we will return if and when the situation allows us.
