“Sexy romantic place to relax and enjoy a few drinks”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

This place is so special. It is nestled next to Hamilton's Grill (excellent too). If you are looking for a romantic watering hole this is it. The perfect place to go and relax with the one you love.It is a two story small boathouse uniquely decorated with marine photographs all over the walls and ceiling. The do not sell food, but they have excellent service and drinks. We had lemon drop martini's that were wonderful. The bartender was so friendly and happy to serve us. This place forces you to relax and the jazzy music exudes romance. Definitely a couples place. Perfect date place.Go here first, then have an amazing dinner next door at Hamilton's Grill (byob) We will be back!!!

“A Lambertville "Must"”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

If you're in Lambertville, to dine or just to browse, the Boathouse is a must stop for a cocktail. Oozing with upriver ambiance, the eclectic interior reflects the many interests of the owner, JIm Bulger, a well-known Lambertville figure (who also owns the Swan Tavern in town). It's hard to describe Jim's decorating theme, but it's safe to say you won't be bored, since the place is crammed to the gills with collectibles spanning over a century and covering many subjects. Don't forget that you're in a bar, and enjoy a well-made cocktail and some pleasant banter with the bartender. And maybe stop next door at Hamilton's Grill Room for a delicious meal. In any event, if you're in Lambertville, make sure the Boathouse is on your agenda.

“Not a restaurant”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

About 10 of us came here before a rehearsal dinner next door at Hamiltons. When the rest of our party arrived (another 10 guest) they were turned away. I guess it was too much stress for the bartender to serve us all. I must mention the place was not too crowded, maybe there were 8 other people there besides us. The place is nice for a drink before dinner. It has good atmosphere, it's a great locals place. I sure wish the staff would smile once & a while or try to act friendly. Good date place but bad for a groups

“Drinks”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Only drinks served but relaxing and friendly. Place to Buy Wines for dinner since right next to Hamilton Grill. Wine bottles prices are higher than in town and the drinks solid but slightly higher too.
