“way over priced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

Fairly good food when it's warm. Nice atmosphere. friendly service. Way, way over priced. highest in the area for this type of restuarant. We eat here alot when we can't get reservations at the better spots. Everytime we get the bill we get sticker shock and swear never to come back but it's convienient.

“breaded and deep fried”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2010

Given the name, we expected the menu to have a decent amount of fish. It leans heavily toward beef and most items are "breaded and deep fried". This menu is ordinary pub grub (burgers, fries, nachos, etc.) and crab cakes that cost 21.00! Had a caesar salad with grilled chicken -- nothing to write home about. Large central bar looks like a boat - dark with lots of sports on tvs. Has a vintage feel to it.

“We had a great family reunion dinner at the Boathouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2008

My wife and I live nearby this restaurant and always enjoy ourselves when we visit the Boathouse. BUT.........this past January we had family coming to visit (over 14 people ranging from 78 down to 4) for a family reunion. As you can imagine, there are not too many restaurants that could accomodate those 14 and another 8 from our family. But, after calling ahead and giving them a heads up all 22 of us headed out to the Boathouse. All I can say is WOW! When we arrived we were all warmly greeted and welcomed. They had arranged for all of us to be seated together at two large tables that could not have been better. Waitstaff was wonderful with the kids and very patient. We pretty much ordered almost every item on the menu from the delicious roast beef sandwiches to the wonderful Seafood platters. Everyone agreed that we were lucky to have such an all-around great restaurant and bar in our neighborhood.
Thanks to everyone connected to the Boathouse for making our family reunion such a success.
