- Great food - great view!mandmDined on 9/24/2014A friend recommended the Boat House to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. The service was outstanding (I had black pants on and was handed a black napkin - nice touch!). The food was outstanding and the view of the sunset from our table was amazing! I would recommend this place to everyone I know. Thank you Mike and the entire crew for a wonderful, memorable evening!Special Features:
- Lovely eveningOpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 9/20/2014We only got there once this year but is was a memorable evening. Made our reservation weeks ago, had a water view but not a window table as we requested. Food was great as was the atmosphere for a late summer dinner. Will not hesitate to go back.Special Features:
- Another wonderful dinnerNanJDined on 9/15/2014The Boathouse ambiance, service and quality of food never ceases to amaze us. We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary here with some delectable apps (1/2 price at that!) at the bar and then a wonderful dinner (including a complimentary glass of champagne!) and delicious dessert. Great night out and we'll be back for more of the same.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Nice placeinfrequentersDined on 9/5/2014Food has always been good to excellent. This time, our original seating was horrible.. especially since the reservation was made a week early.Special Features:
- Fabulous View!TangaroaDined on 9/5/2014My husband and I brought my sister in law who was visiting from Dallas and it was a first visit for all of us. I made the reservation in advance and asked for a table with a nice view. I was so surprised when the host seated us because the table location had a really gorgeous view of the water and sunset. My sister-in-law had a great time too. Thank you!Special Features:
- View Fabulous-Food Just GoodLovelyVIPDined on 9/4/2014If only they would improve the food, this place would be a 10! Just the most fabulous ambiance and view. Had the cheese platter/wonderful...the calamari bland and not crispy...the bolognese good not greatSpecial Features:
- Great service, great viewfabulouschefDined on 9/2/2014The service by the host and waiter were exceptional. We celebrated our anniversary there and were greeted and acknowledged about it. We received two glasses of champagne on the house; which was such a personal touch. The waiter, Patrick, was attentive without being intrusive. He explained each option and was knowledgeable about the items and gave us his personal favourites as recommendations. The main course of shrimp and a lobster dish were not as good as they could've been. I was surprised with that because everything else and everyone else was phenomenal. The appetizers and desserts helped make up for it as did the manager coming to offer his apologies. I think if the the overall gets a 5, but the kitchen needs an adjustment.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 9/1/2014We came from Maryland and it was very nice. It was our 40th wedding anniversary and first time in Rhode island. They sitted us at a window table overlooking the river. And then they sent us over a glass of champaign. To toast our special day.. And we had the greatest waitress crystal. She was pleasent and very kind and helpful. Overall we were pleased. Thank u again for making our stay very enjoyable. Roy and pat StevensSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Not going backyellowvwDined on 9/1/2014I have gone to the Boat House many times over the years. I don't know if they've had some changes in their staffing/ownership but this place has gone downhill. The restaurant itself is lovely with amazing views. The menu is basic & uncreative. Our meals were mediocre. My seafood scampi was tiny. They put 2 big chunks of bread on it in hopes of making the meal appear larger. They should've called it a shrimp scampi; there was only 1 sml scallop & few small pieces of lobster. The pasta was undercooked. My husband's scallop plate barely had a side. The waitstaff is uninterested in providing good service. You want great food with a view? Keep driving on 24 into Newport and go to The Mooring.Special Features:

- Lunch at the BoathouseMsJoanDined on 8/30/2014I have been to this restaurant many many times. And will continue to go for the view and the ambiance. But I must say the food quality seems to have slipped. The last two visits have been disappointing in terms of exceptional cuisine. My sad little piece of swordfish sat alone on a huge white plate, and wasn't inexpensive. The fish tasted fine, but it could certainly have used some sort of edible garnish on the plate. My side of mashed potatoes was rather soupy, and lumpy. I absolutely love the Boathouse special chowder, and recommend it to each friend I bring to the restaurant. But this past visit, it was so thick, you could stand the spoon in it. New chef??????Special Features:
- Must experienceMoedDined on 8/29/2014Found boat house this summer through open table and have been there four times . If you enjoy great food good wine and a view that boasts great sunsets you have to give them a try.Looking forward to many more visits.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- food not up to parOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/29/2014Very disappointed with the food. Have eaten here before and it was good. For the price( as long as the food is good) I don't mind paying the prices. But that was not up to my expectations of what the food should be in an upscale farm to table restaurant. Although, the dessert was outstanding. It also bugs me that there are no placemats. You could offer rolls or something to nibble on while you wait for your meal. When I e-mailed for my reservation I was specific what I wanted and they lived up to that (good going)!!! Let it be known that it is very hard to rate overall because some things were great and others not so.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- FurbDined on 8/27/2014It was a great experience, as always. Our waitress was excellent.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- My favorite restaurant ever45thDiningDined on 8/26/2014Beautiful, stunning sunset over the water, flowing in the giant open windows, people filling the tables from one open covered deck on on end to the other on the north end, food to perfection, central bar keeping up with the demand, service that rolled with our every mood change. Just a spectacular place to dine, especially in warm weather with the sun falling into the distant landscape. Look forward to going back soon.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- What a disappointment!MyrnaDined on 8/26/2014After dining earlier in the summer at The Boat House and having had a delightful evening and very good food, we were so surprised at the difference when we returned the other evening. It was as though it was a totally different restaurant. The server was pleasant but inattentive and the food was beyond mediocre for the price. We shall probably never return even though the setting is lovely.Special Features:
- Great TimeOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/25/2014Great meal and evening for the four of us. Couldn't ask for a better sunset and the food and service complimented everything.Special Features:
- The PlacebenMattaDined on 8/25/2014I love this place for food and ambiance. Have never been anyplace better in my 65 years.Special Features:
- Sunday Lunch in the SunGerryDined on 8/24/2014Another great lunch at Boathouse this past Sunday. Reservations as we asked, at a window. Service, drinks, meal, scenic view..........what else to say. it was very very good, as usual.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Date NightmomsnightoutDined on 8/23/2014This was my first visit and I was pleasantly surprised. The views were amazing, the restaurant busy and food was phenomenal . I started with a cup of their clam chowder then we had the Lobster Friitas, they were even good reheated the next day. Main Entree was the grilled scallops and shrimp in the lemon vinaigrette. Followed by a scoop of Mint Gelato! Service was ok, seemed a little slow. Had to wait over 10 minutes for gelato to make it to the table, cream brulee maybe, but gelato. We would totally come back again!Special Features:
- ExceptionalJeffRDined on 8/23/2014Once again the Boathouse was exceptional. It's clearly the best restaurant in the area.Special Features:

- Great FindTennisfanDined on 8/22/2014This was my first time at The Boathouse and won't be the last. Was vacationing in the area and looking for a nice restaurant to celebrate my parent's 64 wedding anniversary. This fit the bill perfectly. Got a table by the window the food and service was outstanding. Great place for any occasion.Special Features:
- kgoodwinekgoodwineDined on 8/20/2014I love dining here and have had many enjoyable meals and good times, I love taking people here, especially when they have not been here before. On my last visit there was a leak coming from under the bar at quite a fast rate. Whenever the bus boy came over to clean it up, a dirty mop and dirty water was used which did not make for the most pleasant dining.Special Features:
- Consistently ExcellentElishkaDined on 8/20/2014I've done a number of reviews because I go here so often. There's a reason for that -- best restaurant around.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- favorite restaurantsoopDined on 8/19/2014A beautiful summer night and sunset ! Gorgeous view, variety of tables in and outside (high tops, booths, tables). Large windows open up on a nice night , giving you a wide open view of the water and sky...breathtaking. The service is spot on and the food delicious, different, and a good variety offered. This is our favorite restaurant in the area!! Its a step above, yet remains elegantly casual! I would highly recommend it!! If you have friends or family in town, take them! They will have a wonderful experience!!Special Features:
- Lovely view.MartiniDined on 8/19/2014This time we had a great afternoon. Last time I ate here, I wrote to tell you about my experience and heard nothing from you. A year ago I ordered a martini and the busboy knocked it over and broke the glass on our table. The bar sent me a " half of a martini" to replace the one that was knocked over. Really thought long and hard about returning to the Boathouse.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/18/2014Great place to meet old friends. They gave us plenty of time to catch up and chat. Meals were good. Having the open table option for making a reservation was very helpful. Staff wS very friendly and accommodating.Special Features:
- Everything you wantOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/17/2014Great setting, excellent and ample food and great service comes all together at the Boat House with the added attraction at dinner of watching the sun set over the water.Special Features:
- You MUST go!HeatherMacDined on 8/17/2014If you want to eat REALLY well on the water, then you should NOT miss the Boat House! Amazing kitchen staff, fresh local ingredients prepared the right way, attentive staff, and a view worth driving for. FINALLY, someone got it right! The portions were just on the edge of being too much, however even with our full bellies, we could've kept going...it was that good! Fish and Chips were perfection, BBQ half chicken amazing, seafood stew was outrageous! We have found our happy place on the water and almost don't want to share how amazing it is as we want to keep it all to ourselves! But if you enjoy a truly wonderful dining experience in an amazing setting, you can not miss The Boat House!Special Features:
- Summer PerfectBottomline222VIPDined on 8/17/2014If you are looking for the perfect outside dinning spot for the Summer (Spring & Fall also) the Boat House is it. Great seafood, great drinks and a great waterfront view. The oysters were some of the best I ever had and everyone including our non seafood eater had a great meal. We will be back.Special Features:
- First-time dinnerOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/16/2014Wonderful ambiance, good food, exceptional waiter.....we loved it, and as renters in the area will be back again next year!Special Features:
- Great once againnewbeefoodieDined on 8/16/2014Great as usual. Food service and atmosphere all first rate. Open table reservation was made two weeks in advance with table preference of outside or by a window. We had a 730 reservation and we seated fifteen min early. We had what I would say was the best table in the house. Corner table with both Windows open to a fantastic view.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great spotHappyEaterDined on 8/16/2014We had a great time at this restaurant. The location is amazing. I was very happy with the service. Here's my disappointment .. they ran out of veggie burgers. Our reservations were early ... so it's very interesting that they ran out of anything at that point.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
