The Boathouse at Sunday Park
Most enjoyableWe had never been to the Boathouse at Sunday Park but had heard great things. I made reservations for brunch to celebrate my husbands birthday. Food was great! Service was great! View outside... Phenomenal!!! We enjoyed brunch very much! We look forward to bringing friends and family to enjoy.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMLocal Favorite..Another memorable night at the Boathouse.. Great spot to stop for a glass of wine or a beer and take in the views, or for a great meal out on the deck.. Beautiful location, with a great staff.. A must for anyone in the area..6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed the ViewWe enjoyed eating on the deck by the lake. The weather was perfect and it was too early for bugs. The menu choices were enticing and the foods we chose were all good. I really enjoyed the scallop ceviche. The service, while good, could have been better. The system of having a dessert display for the dessert menu didn't work too well. It seemed as if there was only one display tray and our server couldn't seem to get it into her hands. After we ordered the desserts, which were tasty and just the right size to finish off the meal, it took over half an hour to deliver them to the table. Given the types of desserts which all looked as if they could be prepared in advance and then topped just prior to serving this made no sense.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBusiness DinnerI brought my management team to the Boathouse for dinner on a Tuesday evening. Many of the individuals were from out of town and had never been to the restaurant.
From the service to the food, everything was fantastic. It was a beautiful evening, so we were able to enjoy a gorgeous sunset from the inside dining room because we were sitting at a table by full glass doors that opened to a patio.
I would HIGHLY recommend this restaurant and will be back myself!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday with my love, lake, sunsetI am so glad I bought my wife here for her birthday. Weather allowed for us to sit outside close to the lake. The scenery was gorgeous, as the sunset before our eyes. The food was phenomenal, and as always, Kera our server provided an exceptional attitude and service.
Thank you!6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch on the DeckThis was our first time at the Boat House for breakfast. The weather was great, the view very relaxing. Because we were outside, the noise level was moderate. The waiter was very knowledgeable of all the items on the menu as well as the restaurants history.
He was very attentive, served the food hot and did not make us feel rushed.
The food was good, well prepared and I said before served hot. The only problem one of our party had was they felt the eggs benedict yokes were a little more done then they like, however they still felt the food was good.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this placeAny time I feel like going somewhere special the boathouse is my choice. Even after a day of house searching, being exhausted and disappointed. I would not recommend the Mac and cheese but everything else is wonderful! Drinks were wonderful as usual. If you have never been here, add it on your list of things to do this summer.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMwine wednesdayThe view was gorgeous! I recommend being there for the sunset .Half price wine night was unexpected, list is limited, but what we had was favorable.The appetizer, crab balls, was a good start, enough for four. The pizza was more than enough for one and unique and tasty. I was more impressed with the salad and fries that came with the chicken than the entre itself. It was a little on the dry and tasteless side. I would go there again, just for the wine and appetizers. The wait staff, was pleasant and informative.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMBest View in MidlothianIt is always a great experience. The food is good, the service is great, and the atmosphere in incredible. No other place in Midlothian offers the views you get here. It's like being on vacation; but able to be home in 20 minutes.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great place for brunchAlways a great place for brunch on Sundays! The Crab Benedict is very good! The outdoor dining is really special, especially with the background folk music by George Turman! A good menu with lots of seafood dishes; a fun place to share with friends and family.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMSeared tuna and smoked salmonSeared tuna and smoked salmon spread are outstanding!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat locationnice location by the lake, sunset was beautifful, good service, nice atmosphere5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMTuesday Meeting DinnerWe went to The Boathouse at Sunday Park for a Tuesday evening meeting with one of my directors. There were quite a few other large groups dining on Tuesday evening as well- it looks to be busy on most nights. The main reason we decided to go to the Boathouse is because we are able to make reservations on Open Table. Most restaurants in our area do not participate and it's so much easier to just click on my phone than call, etc. We plan to return next Saturday evening as well to celebrate our anniversary. The service was ok, the waitress was slow and the only specification I had made for my food was to have my dressing on the side which of course it did not come that way. All in all, it was a decent experience but it is pricey.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was first class.We dine at the Boat House at Sunday Park or Rockets Landing 3-4 times a month. We had a family get together at Sunday Park; the service was first class and very attentive as usual. Our assigned table was in the direct sun - this was an issue of one in our party so they worked hard to find us another table in a shade area even though they were busy.
The fried shrimp is one of my favorite but I have been disappointed twice at Sunday Park. The friend shrimp at Rockets Landing is superb. The batter is tasty, crispy and golden brown. At Sunday Park the batter is tasteless, mushy and often falling off the shrimp.
Sunday Park is the best view in Richmond and should not be missed.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMOld Friends get togetherExceptional crab cakes! My friends
enjoyed the crisp crust pizza! Our
waitress was so energetic and had
such knowledge of every item! She

I have no complaints, I wouldn't change a thing!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMdelightful 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 AMAnniversary DinnerWe went to the Boathouse for our 26th anniversary. I was able to arrange for flowers on the table ahead of time, they were able to give us a view of the lake, upstairs which was much quieter. The food was good to very good and the service was attentive. The menu was a little limited.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice eveningHad Friday 7:45 reservations for outdoor seating for four. Very busy but we were seated in 10 min. Live music, Caribbean flavor. Just a bit too loud but added nicely to festive atmosphere. Attentive, friendly VG service. Good menue. Food VG but less than E.
We go here 3 or 4 times a year, usually when we can use outdoor seating overlooking the lake and sunset. We usually have a Groupon/Living Social. Prices are appropriate. Hint: ask price on specials. I was "surprised" on prior visit. Good beer selection.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Anniversary meal!!This was our first visit to the Boathouse and our anniversary. The staff really outdid themselves! The service was excellent, the view amazing and the food was wonderful! They even gave us free desert! I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. Thank you for helping make our day special!5/17/2013 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.

Would definitely recommend dining here.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Way to Top off Mother's Day!My boyfriend took me there to top off the day, and it was fabulous. The view (Oh, my goodness), the food and the ambience was very memorable. Thank you for providing the perfect end to such a wonderful day.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 didn't see a lot of choices.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant DiscoveryGreat food. Great Service Great ambience. This restaurant has it all

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. Yes, we will be coming back. Again and again.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat view of the water andGreat view of the water and plenty of ambience. 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! A favorite local place.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVery enjoyable. Food was veryVery enjoyable. Food was very good. Only negative was that my husband ordered the cioppino and it came with very little broth. When he asked more some more broth it took too long to bring it. His plate was almost finished and cold. Would return again.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMLooking forward to our nextvisit.Looking forward to the next visit.
