  • "We were so pleased with our decision to come to the Boat House for our 25th anniversary. We were seated at a great table with a beautiful view of the sunset. 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."

  • "We go to the Boat House several times a year for its very good food and great view and ambience. But starting with the dinner rolls the meal was disappointing. They used to serve home-made crusty round rolls; when some squishy institutional rolls arrived, we asked what happened to the rolls we were expecting. The waitress said management was budget-cutting, and decided the crusty rolls were too expensive. This for a place where an entrée is in the high 20's. After good chowder and salad, I chose the bacon cheeseburger -- normally excellent. It came medium-rare, which was good, but it was cold, the French fries were cold, and the bacon was only partially cooked, so sent it back. Very disappointed. The other entrees were OK."

  • "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."

  • "The Boathouse is beautiful inside and outside. It has become one of my favorite places to dine in the summer, whether it's in the afternoon for a nice lunch outside or for a special occasion dinner. The service is great and the food is outstanding. There isn't the biggest selection on the menu, but everything we have tried on the menu so far has been great, as well as the yummy dessert. Definitely a place to be in the summer. Just make reservations!"

The best table in the house was waiting for us and the view was stunning. The food was flavorful and amazing and our waiter was very professional. We were even given celebratory glass of champagne, a pleasant surprise. I have already, and will continue to, recommend The Boathouse to all my friends and family."

  • "I had previously been to the Boat House for Brunch with Girlfriends back in March this year, we had a great time - the food selection was great and tasted even better - the service was impeccable... that's why I decided to go back and try dinner.... I took my Boyfriend as a surprise for his Birthday and it was an awesome evening! We were greeted with a smile and seated promptly near our reservation time at the best table in the restaurant. We enjoyed the view, the sunset was amazing, the waitstaff are super friendly! My Boyfriend enjoyed choices front the raw bar and the Fisherman's Stew, while I had Grilled Ahi Tuna for the first time and it was yummo! Nancy, our waitress, took great care of us - we'll definitely be back - 2 thumbs up!"

  • "We had the pleasure of dining at The Boathouse for our 39th wedding anniversary. We were fortunate to have beautiful weather, so the windows were open, with comfortable breezes gently blowing in. Our drinks at the bar while we waited were refreshing. Bartenders appear to be very knowledgeable and talented. Our server Crystal was very well informed of the items we inquired about, such as where were the oysters in the Fried Oyster App from..(Maryland). It was wonderful to have such attentive, educated service. I always notice the little things, such as she was right there when our wine glasses needed filling, 'crumbing' the table when we were finished with our dinner, etc. The homemade pasta on the Seafood Scampi was delicious also."

  • "My wife and I love eating out at good restaurants. Living in the Southcoast region of Massachusetts we have many eateries with fresh seafood near the ocean. The Boat House was recommended by a friend, and we have been there twice in two months. It is elegant, the ocean breeze and views are dramatic, the food scrumptious, and the wait staff very attentive and friendly. It is our new favorite restaurant! Very romantic for a date night. Get a babysitter and enjoy your dining experience!"
