We often come to the Boathouse for a fresh seafood dinner "down the shore" in Wildwood, NJ and always enjoyed our meal - until yesterday. My fish was a thin slice of flounder with thick, hard breading. My husband ordered the shrimp platter and received a few pieces of the shrimp also heavily breaded. Maybe it was the time of day, before the dinner hour, that caused this average meal or maybe we should have gone with the specials of the day.

On the positive side we were seated quickly on the outside deck which has a nice atmosphere for dining. Our server was very friendly and responsive to our needs. There was a singer with a pleasant voice that added to our dining experience.

We will definitely return to the Boathouse to give it another chance since this was our first disappointing meal here.

When my wife and I got married in 1971, her dad and brothers went on vacation a couple weeks prior to the wedding and wound up in North Wildwood. For around 35 years from that point on, the Futato and Moegerle summer vacation took place at Kings Inn in North Wildwood. Seven years ago, we could no longer coordinate the trip due to so many conflicting schedules, but my wife and I, with the urging of our son Eric, decided to go back with our grandchildren and whoever could make it. We had an amazing time of reuniting for Kay at Kings Inn and many other memories that came pouring back as we spent the week on the same boardwalk that held so many great memories for our family. We now plan to continue going back each year. One of the nights, my wife and I decided to look for a new restaurant that we had never eaten at, and at the recommendation from Kings Inn management, wound up at the Boathouse. Kelli was our waitress and we had an "excellent experience of fine dining and personal excellent service. We like it so much that we had our entire family go back there the next night. The reviews from them was overwhelming; so much so, that we will probably make that our main restaurant next year. Kelli did an outstanding job of making us feel special and the food was over the top excellent. Everyone especially raved about the salad they serve. Thanks to Kelli and the Boathouse for providing yet another great memory to add to our many great memories of being made to feel special and enjoying very fine food. (Norris & Jan Moegerle)

Our waiter Bryant couldn't do more for us. His recommendations were great, the service was fast and friendly. The entertainment was fabulous. We look forward to coming every year. Thanks for helping to make great summer memories!

Everyone's meals were so good! I had the mako shark special which was amazing and the service was great! Our server Bryant did a great job and was very attentive. I would definitely recommend this place!

We so enjoy our visits to the Boathouse each year we come to Wildwood. The view on the water and great food is great after a day on the beach. No long waits without reservations and staff very friendly. We visited 2 times this week we were on vacation. Like better than Uries.
