Description: Back and better than ever. This casual restaurant, bar, and boat rental facility, located in the heart of Forest Park on Post-Dispatch Lake, is like no other place in St. Louis. The Boathouse has undergone major renovations thanks to a gift from the Jack Taylor family. In the warm weather enjoy leisurely boat rides, lakeside patio dining, cold drinks, live music, and beautiful sunsets. In the cold weather enjoy indoor dining for lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch…or just come and enjoy a glass of wine or a hot chocolate while relaxing around the large stone wood-burning fireplace. **Due to increased traffic in the Park during our busy season, we’ll be able to accommodate reservations for large parties only, 10-16 people, for indoor dining at specific times. Otherwise, our seating is available on a first come, first serve basis.

Stopped for a refreshment whilst walking in the park. Bar man very knowledgeable about his beer, made a great recommendation.

We visited on a warm Friday evening, had a few drinks listening to some wonderful Bluegrass music in a relaxed setting. An excellent location by the lake and surprisingly not too busy. We will return and also recommend.

Took forever to be seated, took forever to order, took forever for some of our party to get their food that was ultimately quite cold (not even warm), and took forever for two of us to get what was the wrong food. When we said it was wrong, but we didn't have another 45 minutes to wait for another try at the correct food as this was a business lunch, we were told that we would simply not be charged for the food that they didn't give us. The solution from the manager for us not getting any food was that they wouldn't charge us for what we had ordered? And also with NO other offer or resolution for the wasted over 2 hours since we had arrived? One of the worst restaurant experiences I've ever had. Will never go there again, and recommend it be avoided by all wanting to avoid a similar experience.

This place is amazing! It’s like bringing the lake & country into the city. We ate(food was great), then paddle boated. There are also canoes, kayaks & paddle boards to rent.
