To keep it simple; Restaurant is clean, friendly and motivated staff, and exceptional food items, not to mention the atmosphere is inviting and relaxing. You must try the annual wild game dinner - awesome in every since, great themes, great food and plenty to eat... in a word the Boathouse is a must stop while in Traverse City, MI.

We attended the night of the Shorts Brewery vs Bowers Harbor Wine dinner. It was an excellent meal, but the drink portions were a little small. The meal was lamb belly, an avocado monkfish salad, rabbit confit pot pie, and a butterfinger ice cream sandwich. The confit pot pie was an experiment, as told by the chef, and it was awesome. I'm hoping to see it on their regular menu.

Beth and I had the extreme pleasure of enjoying a wine tasting and dinner at the Boathouse in January. Chef Eric Nittolo's pan seared scallops, yam puree and pine nut custard was a wonderful melody of flavor. That course was followed by a perfectly prepared rib-eye and the meal finished with a delightful white chocolate truffle. Chef Eric was also kind enough to sit down with us and discuss some of his upcoming plans for dishes as he continues to keep things lively and innovative at the Boathouse.

Thanks for a wonderful evening!!
