Boat House Waterfront Dining
Sat at the bar with Kit as our server and bartender. Very professional, friendly and attentive. Food was very good (swordfish). drink also very good and reasonable considering the ambience. Will definetly return and hope Kit is working .
View was magnificent, food was fine, drinks were excellent
Birthday celebration! Everything great, we were charged an extra $7 for a beer we never ordered. Didn’t make a big deal and paid. Too nice of a night to say something! Thank you awesome as always
My wife and I were celebrating a special occasion and the staff went out of their way to make us feel special. The food was excellent and the view was breathtaking. It is clear to see why dining at this restaurant is in such high demand. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are celebrating a special occasion or if you are just looking for an awesome waterfront dining venue
Pleasant atmosphere and beautiful view. Hall of Fame chowder was excellent.
Everything was great as always!
Met a co-worker for lunch. The service and food were just as great as the gorgeous view from our deck seating. I enjoyed the Scallops with Lobster Risotto and my co-worker enjoyed their lobster roll. The key lime pie for dessert was decadent.
I can tell that other customers were shocked that Blacks were eating there and the seating offered was in a terrible location
Made reservations 2 weeks in advance and noted it was our anniversary (47). They put us at a high table built for 2 next to kitchen door. Pretty poor and requested a different seat. Did not request outdoor dining, as middle of June can be cold, windy or rainy. Better seating couples is needed !!!!
Nancy, our server was fantastic!
Great view, well designed restaurant, and more quiet than others with a circular bar and open dining area. Service is exceptional. Calamari is wonderful, our entrees were good, but everyone's taste varies, so your experience may vary. With so many competitive seafood restaurants in the area, there are others we prefer for the food, but this venue is very tough to beat as is the front of the house. Staff is friendly and attentive. Great venue for a special occasion.
Our party of four was scheduled to play in a golf tournament, but due to a heavy downpour, we decided on lunch instead. After Boathouse was suggested, we were delighted that they were open on Monday and quickly reserved a table. Two of us had never been and were delighted when arriving at the locale. The area is waterfront and located in an area that you would not "stumble" upon if you didn't know it was there. We all enjoyed our cocktails and lunches and even in the rain, the view is soothing and pretty. As a lifelong Rhode Islander, I can't believe this was my first trip there, but it certainly won't be my last! Perfect spot for any occasion.
Returned to The Boathouse to celebrate a relative’s birthday. Have had average to good experiences in the past but this time it was outstanding. We were seated at a choice table near the wall of windows, it was perfect. The server’s name on the receipt is listed as Smaldone, don’t recall her first name. She was very businesslike and efficient and could have smiled more but she was very attentive and brought the birthday girl a complimentary dessert with a candle without asking. Seems so many restaurants no longer add that special touch. Our meals were outstanding, three of us had salmon and another the seafood scampi. The views totally enhance the dining experience and we look forward to returning.
Amazing food, cocktails , and service. After dinner we sat outside to finish our cocktails and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. It’s such a magical place!
Fast service, beautiful location and great food!
This was my first time dining at the boat house. I met my son and his fiance there for lunch to see the place. They are having their wedding there in September! What a beautiful place! Outdors is just lovely! The staff from the hostess,bartender and server were top notch! Food was delicious! Can't wait for the Wedding.
Wonderful, as always!
Expecting to have brunch only to be told you no longer have brunch was a big hurtle to overcome; however, our server was outstanding and the lobster roll was delicious.
Bring back brunch, please.
Excellent night out at the Boat House! Our server Nate went above and beyond to make our night special. Can’t wait to come back!
service was friendly. food was tasty. relaxing location
Enjoyed celebrating a milestone birthday with friends. The food was outstanding and the service excellent.
The Boat house used to be my favorite place to eat. However the last two times I have been there have been a disappointment. In this visit, the lunch salad was served without its dressing and the lobster addition to the salad ($22) was maybe one ounce of lobster. The server was also distracted while at our table and did not make us seem very welcome. Hopefully the Boat House will come back to is better standards in the future.
Food was good; lobster roll skimpy especially for price; everything else excellent
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at The Boathouse and were especially please with the restaurant. Our dining was inside by an open window on a gorgeous day. The restaurant was clean, quiet, and our server, Claire, was exceptional. She was polite, attentive to our dining needs, and always communicated with a smile. The food was plentiful and tasty, though pricing is a little on the high end. None the less, for our special occasion, it was an enjoyable experience.
The new menu offers some wonderful options without losing the traditional favorites. Our server was attentive, kind and authentic. The water view cannot be beat- while we ate indoors, the outdoor patio with wind protective plexiglass was such a smart addition (the wind across the bay can be strong at times). I highly recommend the Boat House to anyone looking to enjoy amazing food, atmosphere, and service.
We really love the Boathouse. My wife loves the Lobster Roll, but this last time, they really cut the amount of Lobster in the roll. My guess is that the cost of lobster went up, so instead of raising the price they reduced the amount of meat in the roll?
This is our go-to restaurant for special occasions & for a night out. Water views are wonderful. Terrific food & service!
Lobster in roll was well cooked but basically tasteless. Great service
Wonderful lunch; food is great! Don’t bother requesting a specific table location. They don’t honor the requests.
Excellent food, presentation and setting. Wait staff was professional and helpful.
We were warmly greeted when we arrived by the hostess and she was able to arrange an earlier reservation for us.
We were 30 minutes late for our reservation, due to an accident on highway we traveled to get there! I called to let them know, we were still going, but would be late. Hostess assured me they would hold our outside table. Had a very nice meal, all was good, especially after the stressful ride in!
Food was delicious! (Although lobster roll could have had more lobster in for the $32.00 price.) Wonderful ambiance at our table by the open window looking at the bay. I would not hesitate to eat here again and I’m looking forward to doing so soon!
Our favorite restaurant in all of MA and RI! Always get an outstanding meal and experience. Highly recommend.
Disappointed in slow service. Wrote on open table site " occassion-birthday." My husband told waiter it was his birthday and got a coupon for $15. off of bill. Still no one could say happy birthday! Just the small things go a long way.
Friendly service and delicious food. Overall a great experience and would highly recommend.
Beautiful spot, delicious seafood,great ambiance and service
Amazing view and great food.. definitely I will be back soon
Great food and amazing view. Always a great meal. Probably the best mussels anywhere!
I don’t understand the new policy of no bread and butter. I also don’t understand why there are so few lunch items on the lunch menu, and the majority of items are heavy, dinner selections
Gorgeous sunset, great food, fabulous service! We're in love with this place! Perfect spot for a sunset dinner on a beautiful summer evening.
