It’s been a couple years since I’ve been to the Boathouse. But the food and service was as excellent as I remember.

We are frequent diners here because it’s convenient to where we live, and the view is outstanding. The service is always wonderful but though the menu sounds intriguing, the food rarely is.

Recent dining experience was at the end of a busy Friday night. Service was excellent, appetizers were excellent and two out of three main courses were excellent. My scallops were overdone and dry. Seems like they may have been sitting for awhile or else cooked earlier and reheated. A disappointment to an otherwise nice evening.

Excellent evening dining at The Boat House. The food was exceptional, and every detail was what you want when you go out to dinner. The menu had great seafood choices that had creative, unique and delicious tastes. The service was great and the price reasonable. Highly recommend and will be back again!!!

This was my second visit to Boathouse. Failed to make reservations the first time but did this time. Food and drinks were great. Waitperson - JP - was terrific. Looking forward to going back when it's warmer and sitting outside.

This was my first time at this restaurant, what an amazing dining experience. It was my boyfriends birthday and neither of us have visited the restaurant. What an amazing view within the restaurant no matter where you sat with in the restaurant. The prompt service and the amazing staff and friendly environment. Meal was prompt and delivered to precise perfection

A little pricey, but always an enjoyable dining experience. Could use acoustic panels or sound reduction to lower loud conversation level.

First visit (new RI resident) - recommended by many neighbors. It was a slow Monday and dreary weather so we didn't get the usual vibe.

Service was excellent. Food very good. Good cocktails and decent and inexpensive wine by the glass list. We'll return in better weather..

Wonderful birthday dinner! Unbelievable views of sunset!!!
Arrived 30 minutes early for reserved time of 4:45. Greeted promptly with a smile.
Other guests without reservation were told the wait was about an hour.
Drinks: great cosmopolitan
Appetizers: calamari - perfectly cooked with deep fried pepper and olives- and mezzo plate-well balanced and tasty
Diner: Paella - large shrimp, scallops, clams, and fish - colorful mixture with saffron rice served in traditional round flat pan yummy
Warm soft bread rolls
Dessert: tasty and with a single verse of happy birthday from our Waiter
after dinner drinks of Italian coffee, black Sambucca.
This will be my go to place for special occasions. Well worth our 30 minute drive. Can’t wait for summer!
I will be sure to come back again!

My boyfriend and I both work in the industry and we both agreed it was very hard to have a conversation. We sat at a two top in the center of the restaurant and even though it wasn’t crazy busy we still couldn’t hear each other at times. Maybe move two tops to the outer parts of the restaurant and have the larger tables in the center? Just a thought. We will def be back but will be sure to request a booth or a table along the wall

I have eaten here a lot over the years and standards are slipping. Salmon was overdone and underwhelming. A side order of root vegetable latkes was not prepared and then when requested was delivered, undercooked after the meal. Also, latkes are pancake like. They are supposed to be on the flat side. These were an inch thick and thus basically raw in the middle. Latke was not an accurate description of what was served. It was more burger or dumpling or cake... not latke. My coffee cup was dirty and served on a saucer full of spilled coffee.. and frankly wasn't nice coffee either. The ginger cake desert was on the dry side and my wife's decaf coffee ordered with it came out only when requested a second time, this time after desert was done. They did comp the decaf, but really this was a very expensive lunch for such a disappointing experience.
