    Went slightly after the season. Service was pathetic and my food was just ok and wifes was truly awful. Might be the type of place to only go to during the season but can't recommend to anyone.

    We were a party of 3 and had a res. for 8PM on Sat. night. We requested a table on the deck. Hostess forgot we were waiting at the bar for a table on the deck so after a half hour, we inquired and were then sat right away. There was then another 15-20 minute wait before our waitress came over who was less than pleasant. Remainder of evenening was fine.

    On a busy Labor day weekend evening the Boathouse was hopping. While we had to wait a bit to be seated even though we had a reservation, we got a lovely table. The food as always was good, the service respectable and the noise level tolerable. All in all, for someone who never goes out on the holiday weekends in the Hamptons, it was a good decision and a good experience.

    This is my 4th time this season @ The Boathouse and it will be my last. I'm not a seasonal resident and eat out almost every weekend all year long but it will not be at the Boathouse. The service was awful. The main course took over an hour to arrive. In that hour no one came to our table to tell us why there was a delay, to ask us if we wanted another another drink or even fill our empty water glasses. In order to even get the waiter's attention I had to enlist the aid of a neighboring table. The manager recognized me since I had been there before. When whizzing through the dining room I ended up getting her attention to find out where our when we would get our food. There was no drink offer or any other " We're sorry" offer.

    We came for the view which of course was terrific. Service was poor. Waitress was pleasant but inattentive. We were always searching for her when we needed something. Had to flag down other service staff for help. Never once came to the table just to ask if we needed anything or to ask us how our dinner was. The view is great but for the $100 per person we spent I want better service.

    Gorgeous view. The restaurant needs to capitalize on this. The service is like a diner and the food is average and expensive. Who needs music blaring when there is such natural beauty surrounding? Sorry this wasn't a better experience.

    Great lobster Mac & cheese & the swordfish was to die for!!! Portion size was a bit too much for me, but this made it perfect, as I left feeling more than satisfied!!! The only thing that would have made this dining experience 100% perfect would be if the boathouse had fresh blueberry pie for desert. :-) But otherwise everything was delicious!!

    We sat down at 7:00 and got appetizers in a timely manner; however, no one returned to our table for an hour!!! We asked for our waiter to check on our food and he disappeared, our dinners came out, undercooked, some overcooked and heated after 8:30....Have been going to that location for over 20 years will NOT return to BOATHOUSE or recommend it.

    When they first opened, the service was horrid. The food was good, but the experience was always very trying because the wait staff was completely untrained. This season they have gotten their act together. The food is very good, the staff is very good and it is a truly pleasant and memorable dining experience. The view of the water is great and even though the last time we sat inside, you can still see the water and if you like have the added benefit of the AC - it was a humid and hot night so it was fine. Our salads were excellent my swordfish was perfectly cooked and a good time was had by all - you should check it out is my advice.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011

    The Boathouse is all about the view, so ask for a table around the perimeter. Our hostess kindly moved us to a premium table. A soiled knife on the table was quickly replaced by a bus girl.Our server was friendly and helpful, if a bit harried. The place was hopping busy on a Thursday night. Salads, a Caesar and mixed greens, were ordinary. The grilled swordfish was tender and flavorful. The Little Neck clams with linguine was tasty, but the clams were few and some were chewy. This dish needs more zip. A good wine selection. Try the dessert sampler for delicious tastings to share. Our table's favorite was the Key Lime pie. You're paying for the view here; the food takes second billing. This restaurant is not wheelchair accessible.

    This was my fourth time here this summer, and once again the food was delicious and the view unbeatable. We drew a waiter we also had on our second visit, who is very competent and fairly attentive, but also rather dour, as if he does not love his job. The waiter and waitress I had on my first and third visits, respectively, were competent, very attentive, and incredibly pleasant and friendly. This waiter did, however, arrange with management to serve us the lobster special that was actually featured at beachhouse; my husband saw an add in the paper and misread it, but the restaurant was very gracious nonetheless.

    While the setting is pretty over 3-mile Harbor the amateur and indifferent service make the experience very unenjoyable. There is no sense of any management of the staff and the staff is so young and awful they should just close down the place and open a new restaurant with new management.

    It doesn't get much better than the waterfront/marina view at the Boathouse. More than 2 years after they took over the old Bostwicks, the Boathouse remains a beautiful dining spot with solid food and a summer bar buzz. Neither the kitchen, nor the service has risen to the level of the Hampton mainstay restaurants, but what they deliver is well presented, tasty and often impressive -- it would be nice if the entire table received their entres together. But go there for drinks, good food and ask for a seat at the waterfront side, facing beautiful Three Mile Harbor. We prefer sundown for the view as opposed to the late Hampton dining trend.

    A terrific waterfront view and spectacular sunsets can be seen from almost every table. Appitizers were prompt, but entrees took another 45 minutes! It wasn't because the kitchen was busy, there were only two other tables with diners at 6:00 pm. By the time we left the restaurant was full. The food was OK, not great. Tuna, salmon and shrimp scampi were good. Seafood pasta could been better. Medium-rare burger came well-done, great fries though.
