    The food was just fantastic! Miss my crab cakes but LOVED the new cod cakes. The grapefruit martini is absolutely the best. Also enjoyed the raspberry purée beret and the amazing espresso martini. Love having dinner at The Boathouse! It was a beautiful night.

    Disappointed with wine. Tasted old and like vinegar. The bartender did not know how to make an espresso martini. Tasted like a coffee with milk in a martini glass. The food was great, especially the shrimp . The calamari was so fresh! The setting was incredible. We had a beautiful view of the sunset. Would recommend based on food and location. Disappointed that the manager did not respond well to criticism when told of disappointed drink experience.

    Beautiful waterfront table, attentive service and delicious food! My paella was fantastic, my mouth is watering jut thinking about the tasty (but not spicy) saffron rice smothered in seafood. We had a six year old in tow at 6:30 pm and they couldn’t have been more accommodating.

    Dinner at The Boathouse was fabulous! Great atmosphere in an edgy, fun dining room overlooking the water. Everyone from the host to servers and wait staff were friendly and attentive without being rushed. Great assortment of appetizers, and raw bar. The beet salad was unique, delicious, and fresh. All seafood entrées were tasty with generous proportions. Plenty of options for the landlubbers who would prefer meat instead seafood. We would definitely go back.

    Checked the Boat house menu on 05/18/2022 saw that Bolognese was still on the menu ( my favorite) went to the Boat house on 05/19/2022 Bolognese was off the menu for the Summer so I ordered fish and chips (just average) I live in Fall River and there are at least 5 restaurants where fish and chips are better and half the price. My wife had Short Ribs she said it was excellent. As usual the staff was excellent, and you can not beat the location.

    Despite being a cloudy rainy day, reception and waitstaff were warm and inviting. Food was excellent, I had the cod cakes and greens. We were comped our two desserts as we were celebrating two birthdays. We enjoyed lovely coffees to finish our meal. We decided to celebrate Christmas in July, any excuse for another girl’s lunch!

    Disappointing meal. Some great salads were removed from the menu and replaced with very basic boring options. Salmon that came out tasted old and bland, and steak had to go back. Medium came out well done ++ and had to wait another 15 minutes for the new one. the entre was removed from the bill which was very kind, but menu and experience not up to par.

    The staff members, as always, were very polite and attentive. When a cool breeze came through and we asked for the flap to come down, it was done immediately, as it was for others that requested it. The food was excellent and served in a timely manner. We had out of town relatives with us who were quite impressed with the beautiful view and the great lunch!

    Anniversary celebration at this beautiful location - been here 25+ times and the food and drinks never dissappoint. Our server, Jessica, was exemplary and we will ask to be seated at her table the next time we visit. Of note, Newport Group has the best loyalty program - join if you frequent the group's restaurants. The Boathouse is our favorite restaurant in RI.

    Overall, we enjoyed our anniversary meal. A couple of things would have made it a 5 star experience. My swordfish tasted delicious but the entire meal was lukewarm at best. When I made our reservation, I indicated it was our anniversary. There was no acknowledgment of that during our meal, we even asked our waitress to take a photo and explained that it was our anniversary and we take a picture every year. I don’t think we were wished a happy anniversary.
