Admittedly this is only our second visit to the Boathouse; we are frequent visitors to the area and last year was the first time we went with friends who consider this restaurant is one of their favorites. We had an unique experience as my previous review indicates.
My DH and I had dinner a few nights ago - a week night - and, unlike our first visit, we were disappointed. We ordered drinks...no problem; we were asked for our order - my husband had a few questions about several options and we ordered (no appetizer or salad). Our order came quickly; I ordered grilled flounder with grits; he ordered one of the scallop entrees with mashed potatoes; both were warm - not as hot as we would have liked (we did not have the oppounity to comment on this); my husband's order wasn't quite what was described - the type and number of scallops - but what he had was OK - but he was disappointed that it wasn't what he was told.
Overall the whole meal "OK"....nothing great...nothing "WOW".
But the worst part was that once we were served our meal, we never saw our server again until we were finished (we would have ordered another round of drinks and never had that opportunity).
While we waited for our check, we "evaluated" the experience; we both felt that for what we got, compared to other similar restaurants, that the prices were high. So the "teacher" in me said B-/C+; my husband said 5/6 out of 10....and we both talked about the area where we were seated - water view (but no view with cool weather, dirty shades - understandable)..., but, the area - floor was dirty, the tables were wiped but not really clean.
So....bottom line. Would we return; probably not. And we were really looking for a stellar experience.
