We love this restaurant! The service is always outstanding and the food is absolutely delicious! You can tell the Chef cares about food, and it reflects in every dish we have had there.
The views are beautiful and the ambiance is classy. And they have docking so we can stop in when we are out on the boat! It is definitely a gem of a place.

Always a great dining experience. The food and drinks were fantastic and service was perfect. The only notable mistake was I ordered my filet Medium and it came out Medium-Rare/Rare.

Very good as usual. Service and food are always great. One of my favorite restaurants. My only complaint, being charged for a piece of bread which was just a piece of focaccia. But that certainly won't change my mind about the Boat House and I will continue to dine there. The food is great. Loved the shrimp fritters.

Been here several times over the past 5 years. We always get a warm welcome at the hostess stand. We sat at the bar this time and received excellent service. Experienced bartender will always adjust a drink order to your taste. Will go back again.

We were both happy to be back to your restaurant to celebrate our 41st wedding anniversary. Covid-19 scratched our plans for the 40th. This was the ideal "safe place" for indoor dining with amble spacing, excellent air circulation and mask and other social distancing rules in place. Of course we both had completed our 2nd Moderna shot.

The food was what we expected. Courteous service. Easy parking and access.

Nice place with a lot of ambiance. We only had burgers, but they were very good. I ordered mashed potatoes instead of fries. The potatoes were also very good. I can not say enough nice things about our server, he was attentive and efficient. I look forward to going there again.

Have had opportunity to dine at the Boathouse several times (primarily on College Visits to RWU). The Boathouse never fails to deliver an excellent meal. Food, service and staff are excellent. Even though we are from out of state we had the opportunity to celebrate a birthday lunch at the Boathouse after spending a night in Newport. A great meal, appetizers, lunch and desert all top notch.
