    Had a really lovely night here with the husband. We ordered crab cake. we thought there would be two served, but it was only one and were a bit disappointed. However, this was real crab and very light on the breading, so our disappointment soon passed as it was delicious. I got the grilled shrimp with lemon beurre blanc sauce (my husband got the scallops) and the meal was yum. We got to see a gorgeous sunset while the breeze from the ocean blew through the open windows.

    Beautiful setting. Seated inside - near reception. Very noisy and congested. Lots of people in small area waiting to be seated. No masks to be seen. Waiting diners actually encroached on our “space.” Suggest you eat outside, weather permitting. Generally overrated dining experience.

    Diverse and reasonably priced menu options with an extensive wine list. Outdoor dining afforded an excellent setting. The restaurant is very popular and always busy so it can be a little louder at times. We were able to get an outdoor table on the perimeter so this helped limit the noise for us. Food was great and service was even better. Boat House is a great special occasion destination.

    We made the reservation 3 weeks in advance for a inside table. They put us outside right next to the bar. The stuffed lobster was not broiled on top and it was warm. The waitress was awful and slow. Not attentive at all. For the prices you pay the experience show be better. We have been going to this restaurant since it opened and the staff, food,etc have gone downhill. I have always raved about this restaurant but I will not going forward.

    Reservation wasn’t until 8:30 but we decided to get there earlier to enjoy the amazing waterviews. We started with the shrimp fritters, light, crispy, just the right amount of spice. The scallop special on couscous was great also, as well as the watercress & lobster salad, and grilled shrimp.

    We loved this place!! Every course was phenomenal. Definitely recommend the sweet onion truffle dip appetizer. They treated us to a half-glass of champagne each for our special occasion, and added a candle to our creme brûlée which was also some of the best I’ve had!
