Our family enjoyed a delicious dinner with a beautiful sunset last weekend. We are so grateful for the Boat House to be close to home and to deliver time and time again. It is one of our favorite spots to relax and enjoy a special meal with family and friends.

We went in for an early Valentine’s Day lunch with the family and all four meals and app were perfectly prepared and presented. We had two of the specials, lobster paella and baked stuffed haddock over green beans with a lemon chive sauce and they were both fantastic! As always, the service was impeccable. This is one of our favorite local restaurants.

I’ve been to The Boat House at least 20 times and they get it right every time, whether lunch on the patio, dinner inside, or sitting at the bar for apps and drinks. It is one of my favorite restaurants in the area. We always choose this place for special occasions or to watch a game at the bar (non-covid times, of course!). Our visit on Saturday to celebrate a birthday proved again everything is always wonderful. Food, service, cocktails, ambiance...everything. My husband’s filet was to die for and my seafood scampi was just incredible. More seafood than pasta! Go if you haven’t been, and return often without hesitation or disappointment!

Our seat with the water view was so peaceful and relaxing. The Award Winning soup is worthy of the title. The crab cake app was overpriced for one crab cake; however, it was fresh and delicious. The atmosphere was quiet. We did get a blast of cold air whenever the door opened but it wasn't unbearable. Overall, enjoyed our dinner and will be back.

Our waitress made us feel rushed from the “get”😡 We were eating our salad & she wanted us to order ourMeal right away and then she said there’s a 90 minute limit which we already knew, but I think that she could have been a little nicer.
