The Boathouse at Sunday Park
delightful diningWe live in Dinwiddie County but always look to the Richmond
area for special occasion dining. We chose The Boathouse
at Sunday Park for our anniversary. It was well worth the hour's
drive and the price. Best shrimp and grits north of Charleston!
Great cocktails and wine list too. We will be back and may not
wait for special occasion!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Boathouse have made thisThe Boathouse have made this a Mother's Day to remember.

Thanks5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth it!Pricey, but worth it to see my wifes face with the kids home from college. We love the water so eating and being able to look out at the lake. Really made her Mother's Day a wonderful memory(her words). We will be back again. Staff was very friendly.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA BREATH OF FRESH AIRPERFECT WEATHER FOR OUTSIDE SEATING. FOOD EXCELLENT. SERVICE EXCELLENT. THE BAND EXCELLENT. THE SETTING WAS GREAT IF YOU WERE WITH FAMILY OR ON A ROMANTIC DATE. LOOK FOREWARD TO VISITING IN THE FUTURE,5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely PlaceThis was a very nice restaurant. Would definitely recommend dining here.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSit outside...have a beer!I went with my wife, 2 kids (3 & 5) and my in-laws...we sat outside at a large table with bench seats on each side, it was rather like a booth. It was roomy and comfortable. The atmosphere was excellent, a semi-cool spring evening overlooking Swift Creek Resevoir. The service was first rate...attentive, polite and personable. The food was excellent with many choices sure to satisfy the pickiest of eaters and the most stringent dieters. The wine selection provided quantity and quality...the bottle beer selection was nice, the draft beer selection left a little to be desired...although, they do seem to feature at least one local (to Virginia) craft brew on tap which was perfect for me.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I celebrated ourMy wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary and had a wonderful time. The food was great and the server went above and beyond the call of duty.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMNice placeThe boathouse was very nice inside. The service was great. The only con was the brunch menu.

I went to the hostess station and with in minutes another server was there assisting us. Ben was awesome! Nice save Boathouse. I will also say we have been going to this restuarant for years and this is the first time this type of issue arose. I have been and still am amazed and the quality servers the Boathouse provides.

Husband and I like to unwind at Boathouse after work on warm-weather days. Good location for girls' night out, too.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a nice time at BoathouseWe had a nice time at Boathouse - the food was really good. Our only complaints - first, we had reservations through open table. A hostess called to talk to me about the reservations before hand & asked about outside seating. I wanted outside seating (and we got it), but the table we got was terrible with respect to the sun - there were many other tables available (not filled the entire time we were there - and the same 4-top size we were at) where the sun was not directly in the face of at least one of the diners. Second, our waiter became much less interested when it was time to pay the bill. It took him forever to get around to bringing the bill and even longer to bring back the credit slip to sign.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food and serviceWonderful food and service on a glorious spring evening...sunset was gorgeous! Our suggested fish specials were delicious, enhanced with fresh vegetables and creamy risotto! Would highly recommend it to others dining at Boathouse! The Fish Taco appetizer was a good size portion and so fresh and flavorful...perfect for sharing! We celebrated our daughter's 34th birthday over a wonderful bottle of wine (suggested by the bartender)...the evening was delightful! Thank you Boathouse staff!!!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMTop Notch RestaurantGreat view. Excellent restaurant with excellent food and service. We will return again and again.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMUnique dining in RichmondOn a beautiful evening, dining doesn't get much better than this. We were able to get a reservation for outdoor dining; peaceful setting overlooking the lake watching sailboats float by in the distance. Waitress was very attentive and pleasant; we had shrimp cocktail done two ways as an appetizer; great seafood menu as well as options for the beef lovers; crab cakes are all crab meat - very generous serving. Overall experience was a 9...no complaints other than we were too full to have dessert!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant gets bad reviewsThis restaurant gets bad reviews but we had an excellent meal. I think on beautiful days, the staff can get overwhelmed by the crowds. We dined on a gorgeous day, but we had very good service and the food was terrific. View is great and makes you just feel summer is around the corner! We will be back!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Boathouse at Sunday ParkThe Boathouse at Sunday Park is a great place to go for dinner. The atmosphere is great, the food is outstanding and the view is beautiful! You will not be disappointed!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe entrees were really good theThe entrees were really good
the artichoke/crab dip had no crab or artichoke we had to ask for some to be brought out and it just was not very good.
The shooters are over stated, the tiramisu was not even close no flavor lady fingers were dry no liqueur at all, not sure about the nuts that were in it but have not had nuts in one before. and almost no hint of expresso
balsic glaze strawbeery short cake was nothing more then a very minor amount of balsamic vinegar drizzled on top
The dip and shooters are a minor issue but were disappointing, over all we emjoyed the dinner4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food with awesome sunset.Really enjoyable evening. Sat outside with view of the lake watching and awesome sunset. Food was very good. We enjoyed the salmon plate appettizer. Crab cakes were very good!

It would be good for diners to be alerted to unexpected foods, such as the "home fries" which were good, but extremely spicy. Very, very nice brunch experience.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe ease of on line reservation,The ease of on line reservation, food and service were all satisfactory.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe ate at the Boathouse lastWe ate at the Boathouse last year for Easter, and decided to go back agin this year. Just like last year, we were happy that we did! The food selection for a Brunch Buffet was pretty good, just some issues with some food being a bit lukewarm.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMOriginally a good local restaurantOriginally a good local restaurant that aged, the owner recognized the need for a substantial upgrade. The place was renovated and rejuvenated, and renamed to join its same name partner on the opposite side of Richmond. Our table for 4 had two of the rockfish specials, crab cakes, and shrimp and grits. All diners were very pleased. I personally wish they had kept Cajun chicken salad on the menu for old times sake,it was the best! But I understand the change.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAmbiance and Taste NEVER fail here!The Arugula salad cannot be "beet", as always:) and the Scallop Ceviche was a fresh surprise! Three delicious meals later, our taste buds are most happy. The Fried Calamari was tender AND crisp, not greasy - The Best we've had in Richmond! The Rockfish special was flavorful and grilled to perfection. Another tasty evening overlooking the lake at sunset (in their newly refurbished side dining area). You cannot beat this GEM on the Southside. We are grateful.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMLOVE this place! We haveLOVE this place! We have been going there for over 20 years and love it every time! The outside seating overlooking the water and the amazing sunset is the best in town. The menu changes throughout the year so we never get bored!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have a hard time findingWe have a hard time finding good seafood much less crab dishes; not here. Simply the best crab I have ever had. The crab cakes were out of this world. The scallop ceviche almost melt in your mouth. Not to mention a great view over the water at sunset. Worth going to. We will be going back.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful view, friendly staff,Beautiful view, friendly staff, very good food. Very reasonable prices and they accept reservations.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMI felt that the menu couldI felt that the menu could be more diverse and offer food that is more to the less seafood minded.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMDinners we've had here haveDinners we've had here have not been so great, but the brunch was very good. We will come back for brunch.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were celebrating my husband'sWe were celebrating my husband's 50th birthday. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and accommodating. The food was delicious, but expensive for what we ordered. Thank you for a nice evening.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I frequentlyMy husband and I frequently eat at the Boathouse. We like to eat early to get a good table with a view and avoid the crowd. We usually have seafood, but this time we each had a spinach salad and a beef filet. We enjoyed a bottle of red wine since it was Wine Wednesday. It was overpriced, but very good, nevertheless. Our waiter, Sam, was excellent.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBest atmosphere ever. StaffBest atmosphere ever. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Unfortunately I don't eat any seafood so my choices were limited.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was very good, butThe food was very good, but the waitress was awesome! So accommodating and friendly! A couple of folks in our group (young and old) needed a flashlight to see the menu and the seating was fairly tight, but beyond that, we would definitely return.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst visit but definitelyFirst visit but definitely won't be the last! Love to dine with a water view.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
