Great meal as always. You've changed the Hall of Fame Chowder. It's not as thick and there's an undercurrent of something sweet - can't figure it out yet. I miss the thickness, but I like the amount of chourico in it. Shout out to Tim - wonderful server !

The Boathouse staff and food never disappoints! I treated my daughter and son in law to an evening out. Started with a MacMurray Pinot noir and a Ragged Island IPA draft. Delicious! Our first course began with 9 cold, fresh, crisp shrimp cocktail and an order of Point Judith calamari. Calamari was lightly fried with peppers and served with a marinara that was sweet and flavorful. I enjoyed the special Filet Mignon, so sweet and tender, accompanied by truffle mashed potatoes and spinach, topped with fresh poached lobster My daughter had an incredible lobster roll packed with lobster served with a side of brussel sprouts that where fried lightly, good and sweet. My son in law had The Blackbird Farm Burger cooked to perfection, sweet and delicious. Morgan was our server and she was very attentive. We will be back soon!

We sat outside the restaurant which we wanted but it was slightly cold that night. Server made adjustments to heater when asked. Server was kind and helpful.

A reservation is mandatory as with most eateries. We were able to be seated right away. We had a great view...actually no matter where you sat! The booth has plastic dividers for added protection which was greatly appreciated. Servers all wore masks. Lunch menu had a great selection. Our order came pretty quick. Both meals were hot when served, presented well and delicious. This was not my first visit nor my last.

Our server was very good. My one concern was that my guest ordered two different drinks but was told that the alcohol for those drinks was not available. Her third drink was available. You should look at your inventory to maintain the necessary alcohol for beverages.

First of all let me say that the Hall of Fame Chowder was one of the best chowders I’ve ever had and the Crab Cake appetizer was outstanding! Our server, Nancy, helped make our dining experience even better and all in all it was a wonderful afternoon...food, ambience, great location and great service!

The food was great, and the attention to COVID-19 safety was excellent. Definitely would go back! We had the calamari, the mushroom bruchetta, and the haddock. All were absolutely great. Service a little on the slow side, but still great.

The Boat House is a great place, small is size but big on delivering a delightful dining experience. I would recommend calling ahead for a reservation as several times I went without one and was not able to be seated. The views of the Sakonnet River are relaxing, staff are friendly and the food is very good.

The only downside was the smaller menu. The chef had to remove a few items due to the pandemic.

Had only purchased food to go at Boathouse since pandemic (which was fabulous by the way and I had been skeptical as to how some dishes would travel) so it was a real treat to return in person.
