Out of this modest kitchen flows a continuous stream of fine food. Whether simple comfort food -- house-made mac & cheese, BBQ brisket -- or superb pork chops and steaks, whether eating inside or on the lakeside terrace, the Boathouse never fails in its commitment to quality ingredients and equally quality preparation. Have a child with a nut allergy? Your server and the chef will check every recipe and ingredient list -- even vanilla ice creme! -- , taking care to serve a nut-free, uncontaminated dish. The service is excellent. Somehow, The Boathouse manages to serve updated, contemporary cuisine in a setting and atmosphere that reminds you of that wonderful lakeside place you went to as a child with your grandparents.

We had been to Suttle Lake Lodge several years ago and had a wonderful stay however the Boathouse was closed at that time and was being used for storage. When we learned it had opened and were visiting Sisters we were excited to visit again and try the Boathouse. We went for an early dinner and were sadly disappointed with our meals. My husband ordered a Peppercorn crusted sirloin steak with crab. He said it was terrible- the steak was not done according to his request. It was overlooked and was not peppercorn encrusted. There was no crabmeat on the plate as ordered. When the waitress was advised of the missing crabmeat she brought back about a tablespoon of crabmeat (?) for 6.00 dollars ! I had ordered a Mediterranean flatbread which was brought out after my husbands meal and the bottom of the crust had been burnt! Unfortunately we will not go back for a meal. However the setting is beautiful and there is a nice deck to enjoy a drink while taking in the serenity.

Food was excellent. Rising moon mojito was awesome! Flat bread was tasty too. Will definitely eat there again.

Cory Whalen and The Boathouse Restaurant staff cook up some amazing food and they serve it with the friendliest smile! The Lodge scored when they picked up Cory!

We arrived without reservations at 7 on a Saturday in July. The roads were a mess with camp trailers and motor homes. The restaurants in Sisters were packed because of the quilt festival. Here they took us in and we had a great time. The service was slow but this is a small exclusive resort on a true natural mountain lake in the woods away from it all. The restaurant really is in a boathouse by the lake where they tie up the boats. I had a house salad that was excellent. I also had the trout fish and chips. Best fried trout I have ever had. My wife had the pork nachos. Very good. I have to figure out how to make both of those. Good food in a beautiful setting.
