Diner Reviews
  • "My colleagues and I had dinner and drinks. Everything was great. We sat outside. The water was beautiful. The sunset was beautiful. The whole night really was so memorable because all of the food we ordered,from the appetizers to the entrées to the dessert, was phenomenal! That ambiance blended with the quality of the food made the whole evening one we'll never forget!"

  • "It was a very windy day but we stayed outside even with the wind because the dining room was too cold with the A/C going on. It was more comfortable outside. I took an appetizer for lunch - fried oyster but it was very small but good. The fish and chips that my friend had was better."

  • "Little Necks appetizer was great - just a little too salty Fisherman's Stew also very good - but a little too salty"

  • "Situated behind a phalanx of cookie cutter condos that spoiled the hillside, the Boathouse was well situated with an excellent view of the Sakonet River. The food was good though the service took forever. I've read rapturous reviews perhaps written by people from the midwest who have never seen the ocean."

  • "We stopped at 2:00 PM and had a very nice lunch. We enjoyed lobster roll and a poached tuna salad on Ciabatta. The tuna salad had some different and interesting ingredients, it was excellent. The house made potato chips were delicious. The Shiraz was wonderful."

  • "What a wonderful spot by the water. The atmosphere was perfect for a summer dinner with family . We were seated promptly on the deck as requested. The server was friendly and attentive and the food was pleasing to the eye as well as the palate. The portions were reasonable but small by American standards. The prices are on the high end but worth it for the environment and quality service."

  • "Our first time dining here and we were extremely pleased with everything. The outstanding service began with a phone confirmation of our reservation, by a live person. We were warmly greeted by the hostess, introduced to our waiter George, who was fabulous, by the way, then seated. Little necks, and Hall of Fame chowder were outstanding, esp. the chowder. We all had seafood of some sort for entrees and everything was just perfect. The fisherman stew was incredible. I can't wait to go back!"

  • "Disappointing experience, but maybe it wasn't my night. After a few sips of wine, I found a fly in it. The wine was replaced. After eating a bite of dinner, (Seafood Paella special), I saw it was missing half the advertised ingredients, namely swordfish and salmon. It was replaced. I am not one to make a fuss in a restaurant when things go wrong, but for the price of this meal and caliber of this restaurant, I did expect a discount on the meal or an offer of a free dessert. There was nothing. The meal was full priced and we paid for our own dessert. As one more item firming our opinion of the place, as we were leaving we saw some beautiful bread rolls being served in a brown paper bag to new diners. They never made it to our table."

  • "this is an outstanding example of a restaurant that has everything. Great location and scenery is awesome. Great menu priced where it should be. The outside is perfect as long as the weather co-operates. The last time we visited it was too cold but they had set up a heater to help. Part of the Newport Rest Group which always seems to do it right."

  • "This is our second time there within the last month. This time we took out of town guests from NY and they loved the food, ambience, area, view and service. A return visit is definitely on the schedule when they return and of course we will be there again since we live in Mass and it is an easy and pleasant drive for us."

  • "The food is good , the view is great but the prices are definitely higher than comparable restaurants . 4 shrimp medium shrimp and 3 half dollar scallops are not $27 dollars .. Add a side of mash potatoes for 6 bucks ... Definitely paying for the water view . We go there about 1-2 times a year as a guilty pleasure for my wife but it's not my go to place for everyday dining .."

Our waiter surprised us with champagne which set the mood with romance and really made our celebration extra special. The food was delicious. Order the shrimp and corn chowder! We are told that the view is equally breathtaking in the fall and winter."

  • "My husband and I had a fabulous anniversary dinner at the Boathouse restaurant. A friend had recommended it, and we made a reservation for our special dinner via Open Table. The restaurant honored our request for a water view table, and wished us Happy Anniversary! The view was amazing, as was the service and food. Our server was excellent: knowledgeable, timely and personable. The food is superb. Everything was cooked expertly and was very flavorful. We recommend the barrada (sp?) salads with swordfish or salmon, the little neck appetizer and the calamari. Even though we live in Boston, we'll be back! It's worth the trip."

  • "The view is fantastic and the staff made sure we could truly enjoy for a birthday dinner. As usual the food is delicious. Scallops perfectly cooked not overdone as in most restaurants. We took a risk and ordered steak at a seafood restaurant, we were not disappointed. Cooked to perfection, melt in your mouth. Our waitress Erin was so attentive and had great knowledge of the menu, she was even able to have our dessert tweaked to our liking! Additionally we never felt rushed and thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience."
