Great menu with salads, fish, chicken and steak. Very crowded during busy season so go early. Beautiful sunset viewing.

The Boathouse is a great place to kick back and enjoy a really great view of Skull Creek, good food and relaxed atmosphere. The menu is mostly seafood cooked the way you want it.

The Boathouse is a large place with a large outdoor space as well. Atmosphere is fun and it looked like a great place outside to grab a drink and enjoy the sunset to some great music. We had 7 family members at dinner and our waiter Dennis was quite attentive which we appreciated it. The only disappointment was that seating is first come first serve unless you have a large party of 10+. Luckily by arriving at 5:45pm we were seated immediately inside, but all the outside tables were taken. The food was very good (loved the hush puppies and the chocolate pudding cake for dessert). My family seemed to enjoy all of their entrees but not with enough enthusiasm that I could give this restaurant an "excellent" rating. But I would definitely recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for an outside place with a great atmosphere to chill out and take in the sight of the river.

Wonderful meal! We were there for a friend's birthday and there were six of us. All of us had delicious meals. Service was excellent and we got to sit outside and enjoyed the gorgeous evening.
Definitele recommend this restaurant.
