Boat House Waterfront Dining
Food was great service even better
Awesome as usual
Beautiful location with terrific water views. Attentive, good service. Reasonably priced. Ocean-oriented food well-prepared, exactly what one would seek in along the New England coastline.
The food was absolutely amazing! It was our first time there and we already cannot wait to go back. We were celebrating our 13th wedding anniversary and the waiter was thoughtful enough to bring us glasses of champagne to help celebrate.
If you are looking for a place with great waterviews and very good food the Boat House is the place. The setting is very attractive even in winter. The menu offers an interesting variety with emphasis on seafood. I had swordfish which was perfectly cooked and my wife had scallops which were done just right. The highlight of our meal was the dessert: Butterscotch Bread Pudding with a scoop of vanilla gelato. This a place we certainly come back to.
I found the food a bit bland, but everything was fresh and service was good. We had a couple of things that needed to be heated more, and they were immediately picked up and reserved with improvements.

We had a great lunch at the Boathouse! Service was fantastic and the food was delicious. We will definitely go back again and again!
Thank you JAG1! Very happy to hear you enjoyed your lunch and that our food and service exceeded your expectations. We look forward to your next visit.
Great food, drinks, service and view. We will definitely go back.
Thank you Amy! We are happy to hear you are coming back and we look forward to seeing you then.
The reason we keep coming back even when it’s not a beautiful summer evening is because the food is excellent and the atmosphere and views even in the winter are great. Still think their fish and chips can’t be beat. Best dollar value on the south coast.
Love the place and the view of the water made it very romantic. The food was amazing.
Thank you Paul! Glad you enjoyed and yes, the view makes everything a bit more romantic here.
Great food..great service. Nice touch bringing a dessert for my birthday!
Thank you Joan and glad you could enjoy your birthday with us. We look forward to seeing you again.
Great meal and good service.
Thank you! We are glad you enjoyed.
Food, service & ambiance were all excellent. View of the water was beautiful.
Thank you Dianne! We work hard on the food, service and ambiance. We're just lucky to have the water view to enhance it all. Hope you join us again.
We had a wonderful meal. Our server Luis listened carefully to food allergies and concerns. When each course was delivered they stated this is all gluten free.
It would have been perfect if the seating was better. We were in the middle of the floor, a table of two, with a birthday celebration 12” away. Our table had been separated from their table. So our conversation was limited and I left knowing way to much about the lives of the ladies next to use. And yes we did ask to be reseated.but would have to wait .. I made reservations not to have to wait on a weekday night.
Thank you Pat and we are glad you enjoyed. Luis does a great job and we will be sure to pass along your compliments. We are sorry that your seating was not ideal. Our host team will always do their best to sit guests where they can truly enjoy. We will strive to seat you at a more enjoyable spot on your next visit.
You don’t need a special occasion to enjoy the fantastic food and service, but it makes special occasions even better.
We couldn't agree more MAOutsider. Thank you and we look forward to your next Boat House occasion.
Corey was a great server, knew the menu well. I ordered the Boulliabase which lacked the cod per the menu. I prefer the mussels with choirizo appetizer. We love the Boat House and will be back!
Thank you! Corey does a great job - you were in good hands. We are glad you love it here and look forward to your next visit.
What a great place to connect with friends and enjoy excellent Drinks and food.
We went there for brunch and enjoyed Eggs Benedict and amazing cocktails! The key lime zinger is incredible! The service was friendly and not rushed. The view was perfect over looking the water.
Would go back over and over.
Thank you! We are very happy to hear you enjoyed your brunch and yes, the Key Lime Zinger is incredible! We look forward to having you back here over and over again.
Great people in a great location. We have been a few times and always leave happy.
Thank you Allan! That's what we love to hear. We always want our guests happy.
Always a great experience with professional service, beautiful food and a lovely view.
Thanks Denise! Glad you enjoyed it all. Hope we see you again.
The Boat House is one of my favorite restaurants. Beautiful scenery, food is always incredible, and waitstaff are exceptional.
What an honor it is to be one of your favorites! Thank you Mary. Glad you enjoyed.
One of our favorite restaurants. Always outstanding food and service!
Thank you! We are proud to be one of your faves. Hope you will join us again soon.
I had a lunch meeting with a client and this was a perfect location... elegant and a fantastic menu! Upscale but not stuffy! Love the Boathouse!
Thank you! We are glad you love it here and happy that your meeting was a success. We are grateful for your visit.
Always satisfied with the everything. Only one time I wasn't happy with my dinner was during Valentine's Day I ordered stuffed lobster, it was busy and the stuffing was dried ans overcooked. That plate is pricey I did not complain but tried it for the 3rd time on New Year's Day and it was like I remember the first time. Excellent! We just avoid super busy holidays & make reservations earlier. Staff is super professional, friendly, kind, caring, warm and attentive. You also can't beat the views from any table! I recommend this place to all my friend and my patients.
Thank you for trying us again and we are happy your New Year visit was more of what you enjoyed. We appreciate your recommendations and we forward to seeing you back here again.
We had a wonderful meal!!!
Great way to start of 2020
Also, our waiter was amazing
Thank you Robin! We are very happy you enjoyed it all! Happy 2020!
Second time we have gone to the Boathouse but won’t be our last!!!!
We are glad to hear that! Thank you Kathy. We look forward to viist number 3!
The restaurant is beautiful. The service was fairly good. But the food could have been better for the value. I’m pretty sure if we weight the cod it would have barely hit 4ounces. That’s fine, but for the price? Also, with the exception of the calamari which was great, the rest of the food we ordered was mediocre. Likely won’t return.
Sorry to hear this Steven. We have built our reputation on exceptional food and never like to disappoint. We will be sure to share your comments with our culinary team as we strive to be better at what we do. We hope that you will give us another chance and we can deliver on a memorable meal that is more typical for our restaurant. We do apologize for letting you down.
Our server was fantastic, the view of the bay is stunning and the food was cooked perfectly.
Thank you! We are so happy you enjoyed.
Christmas luncheon with visiting relatives.
Thank you for joining us. Hope you enjoyed.
The best fish and chips of all the New England restaurants I’ve eaten in. Great view, friendly staff
Wow! What a compliment. Thank you Robert - we are glad you enjoyed.
A rare average rating for the Boat House. Swordfish was overcooked and the want veggies below were chewy and obviously had been sitting for a while. Waiter forgot second basket or bread and was slow to check in on us. Might have just been an off night.
Thank you for your feedback and we are sorry we did not meet your expectations. We will be sure to discuss your comments with our team so we can take steps to make sure our exceptional quality is adhered to at every service. We do apologize and hope on your next visit that we can deliver the type of experience you have come to expect from Boat House. Your satisfaction is important to us.
Yes- it was a perfect time to be there because it wasn’t crowded, the view was beautiful, service and food great
Thank you Jean! Very happy you enjoyed. It's beautiful here in the quiet of winter.
Food and service were fabulous as always! Our server, Rebecca, was friendly, expeditious, and knowledgeable about the menu! Excellent overall experience!
Thank you Chris! We are glad you enjoyed and happy that Rebecca made a positive impression. We will pass along the compliment.
Great place for an afternoon drink and some apps, burgers etc. have not tried the boathouse for dinner , but will soon. Menus looks great , staff very friendly.
Thank you Stevom. Glad you enjoyed and we look forward to seeing you here for dinner soon.
All staff were dressed in fun Holiday clothing.
It made my day. Food and service were great as always. It was a very enjoyable Christmas Eve day lunching experience.
We are glad we made your day! Thank you for joining us for the holiday and we are very happy you enjoyed.
Excellent as usual this place never disappoints with service or wait staff or food quality
Thank you Donald! We never want to disappoint. So happy you enjoyed.
This is a gem of a restaurant any time of year! The food is outstanding and the service is great. I would highly recommend the Boat House. We were visiting in the Westport area from Texas and found it on the Internet. What great luck we had!
Thank you! It's a thrill to be considered a gem. We appreciate your recommendation and look forward to seeing you again.
The food was excellent as usual. Our waiter was a little off.
Glad your food was excellent. Sorry to hear your service waa anything less than great.
I would definitely recommend the Boat House! Sunday was our 1st brunch there, our 40th wedding anniversary ❤️My husband had the award winning chowder and the frittata, I had the spinach salad with chicken along with a few mimosas. Everything was delicious, the holiday decorations were beautiful and the staff was friendly and attentive. We would definitely go there again!
Thank you Rebecca! We are thrilled you celebrated such a happy occasion with us and glad you both could enjoy our brunch. We really appreciate your recommendation and look forward to seeing you both here again soon.
The service is excellent, and the food is divine. Love it.
Thank you Joanne! We are glad you love it here!
