The grapefruit martini is outstanding! LOVED the seafood scampi and crab cake!!! Best breadless crab cake ever! That’s the way to do it

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.

We were thrilled to make the Boat House our first indoor dining experience during COVID! This is a staple for us during the summer while boating and they did not disappoint. Clean, safe, and the food was amazing!

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.

The Boathouse is in Tiverton R.I. It couldn’t be more “right on the water”. The cuisine is incredible. If your an oenophile, (wine lover extraordinaire) you’re in luck. We drive 12 miles for an incredible lunch at The Boathouse. It’s not very expensive, but if you go, budget $100. per person and have a great time. That figure will include a nice bottle or two of California wine. Make it a dining event.

Food was delicious but the outdoor dining was uncomfortably chilly for our special night out. We have been before and enjoyed indoor seating which greatly enhanced our experience. I literally had to wear my winter parka for a majority of the meal. I did ask for the heat to be turned up and they did... But the temperature dipped again.

Sad that we spent over a hundred dollars on a meal that we ate outside shivering.

Great food and service in a beautiful spot. Drinks are well done and the crab cake is delicious. Lump crab, no filler. Well spaced tables, dining indoors or on the heated deck.

We had a wonderful dinner! Our server, Lewis was very informative about the wine as I was unfamiliar with their selection. I wanted a dry red as I usually drink Chianti and he suggested a Malbec. Great choice! The signature chowder and scallop appetizer were delish! Our entrees of the filet with scallops and the salmon were cooked to perfection. The creme brûlée was great paired with chamomile tea for me and a signature cocktail called a pain killer for my boyfriend! Lewis had a great personality, attentive and friendly but not overbearing. Good sense of humor! We sat on the covered patio which overlooks the ocean. It was cozy with the heaters and of course sipping wine! We will definitely be back!
