Even though there was a huge line at the door, we walked right in and were seated right away by a very pleasant hostess. Table was as requested, service was excellent from beginning to end of meal. The food, especially the Grilled Swordfish, was excellent! I have been previously disappointed by the Boat House in the past and I have always considered it overrated but I have say that all four of our party were very pleased with the entire experience!
Helpful staff does their best to accommodate everyone's desire fore a water view, which is impossible......Great food, solid service, will keep coming back.
We had another wonderful dinner with our friends. As usual, the service was outstanding, the views are wonderful, and the food is exceptional! The Boathouse has become one of our very favorite dining destinations even though we drive nearly 45 minutes to get there. We can hardly wait for the warm weather to enjoy dinner outside!
Celebrated wife / mom's birthday and it couldn't have went any better. The appetizers were outstanding; we indulged in the raw sampler and crab cakes. The cocktails (sangria) were good and we have enough experiece to say they were made well. The main course was fantastic, we all sampled one anothers plates (fillet, seafood cassrole, lobster roll and cheeseburger). The kids enjoyed themselves and the staff were very good about giving them a little attention. We ended with a carrot cake dessert, espresso and a nutty irishman coffee drink. The kids shared a chocolate peautbutter dessert which kept them quiet, so no need to say anymore. A waitor wrote happy birthday in chocolate on our dessert plate which looked too perfect to be real... but it was. It was a great experience. I highly recommend you give this a try.
From the moment we were greeted with a big smile and a welcoming attitude to the last bite of dessert, this is an A1 place to dine. Kristen served us with a great smile and ready to answer our questions. The rest of her team were equally as friendly and efficient. The Managers were always working wherever needed to support their team. The food is always top notch. Nothing better anywhere’. And of course the location is fabulous. You will never go wrong Dining here.
Excellent food and service. Thank you Leslie and Rebecca as always! Never disappointed here!!!!!!
Expensive, but good. It is not for your average dine-out.
We went for Sunday brunch. The food was fantastic and we will be back when the weather is nicer so we can enjoy the water view.
Awesome food, great service, superb experience ...!!!
The food and service were both fantastic. The staff were very accommodating to my wife's food allergy. The atmosphere is vibrant.
Boathouse can be depended upon for great food and service everytime. Menu is more for omnivores than vegetarians. Service was attentive yet not too much so we enjoyed the dinner conversation and because it wasnt too loud, all 4 of us could engage in a conversation.
We will definitely return
Food was excellent and service was outstanding provided by Holly.
Always a great meal at Boathouse. Love the cocktails, the food, and most of all, the view
They have lost their focus.
Lots of accolades, lovely waterfront dining press, and they have never been more busy. The focus is clearly on turning tables and making your dining experience as expeditious as possible.
The pros - their food remains good although plating is now wholly uninspired. Tim, our waiter, continues to be good but when rushed he starts to show signs of stress.
The cons - and get ready they are plentiful. Pave the parking lot. It's not crushed shells, it's not even decent gravel. It's mud and I don't need to ruin shoes and get another carwash to say I had fair lobster fritters. And when I say, via reservation and on the phone, that we're coming in to celebrate multiple birthdays at least mention it. I don't need a free dessert, but would like someone to at least acknowledge our special occasion. Remember when CG in Providence used to cover the table with little birthday themed decorations? Boat House doesn't. And don't put a table with two kids in the bar. It's not pleasant and it's not particularly classy. Lastly, slow down. We had drinks, appetizers, entrees and desserts in 98 minutes. Tables were cleared at frenzied speed and the goal was to give as many diners a mediocre experience as opposed to giving less people what the place is capable of.
Boat House is not the same. For a restaurant that opened poorly, to one that became truly excellent, it is now meh. If you ate there between 2013-2016 and had a phenomenal meal I don't think you will today.
Very good staff, wonderful location, excellent food
The food was fantastic, service as well...just excellent
Always good food, good service and great ambiance.
Everything from our chowder, Caesar salad, fritters, seafood scampi, haddock with chorico, to our fabulous desserts, especially the earl grey ice cream, were delicious. We loved Kyle the waiter and Exec Sous chef Lou. Very special meal, with a fantastic view and great menu and food. Can't wait to come back and sit at the bar or patios!
Excellent as usual
Lovely atmosphere...one of the most romantic places to dine...talk windows, subtle lighting, water view, tables well spaced apart lend to a sexy romantic evening. Drinks are divine. Menu choices plentiful and versatile. Food delicious and presentation had wonderful eye appeal. Wait staff polite and knowledgeable
Perfect perfect perfect
The food was excellent and our server Nathan is outstanding.
I enjoyed having my birthday lunch here. The views, service and food are exceptional. The hummus is incredible! Thank you!
Our experience at Boahouse was wonderful from beginning to end. All the staff was wonderfully pleasant. We were very impressed with our server, Kyle. When asking about our order he inquired if we had any allergies he needed to be aware of. As parents of a child with food allergies, even though we were alone, this was wonderful to hear that your staff take allergies so seriously.
Very good meal prepared w care & real cooking thought!
Always fantastic! The view was amazing in the windy snowstorm. Food and service excellent as always.
We were celebrating a friends birthday and had a very nice evening.
It was dark by the time we got to the restaurant, so we really couldn't see the water to well, but that didn't discourage our evening sitting by the bay.
Our food was delicious and the wait staff were helpful and full of smiles throughout our dining. The wine choices were very good also.
One in our party is Gluten Free, and I must say, The Newport Restaurant Group is very accommodating to that need, so it was all good.
It is a very popular place to go even in the winter on a Thursday night.
We will dine there again:)
Great food, service and a beautiful sunset. Love the Boathouse!
great location with beautiful views, excellent service, relaxed dining
New Year eve dinner was pleasant. Used Open Table four days before the date and only 10pm reservation were available. Was concerned due to that was when the kitchen closes. Arrived at 9:45 and many tables were available.... This made for a quiet dinner that we were able to talk through... love that this resturant is in our back yard ..it’s the go to place in Tiverton
I ordered a sirloin with mashed potatoes and carrots! The steak was cooked as requested, however, plate was loaded with super salty gravy after I had ordered without, , mashed potatoes were extremely salty as well and carrots under cooked. I told waitress that I did not order meal with gravy and that mashed were extremely salty. Waitress returned with a bowl of mashed potatoes only. I ended up taking the bread plate and put my steak on that plate and ended up eating the steak alone as mashed potatoes were still very salty and she did not bring new carrots . Over all it was a disappointing $80 meal that ended up giving me heartburn from the gravy . This Restaurant is a hit or miss on the meals. They do not have the consistence that other high end restaurants seem to have. This has been my 3rd time that I was disappointed with my meals.
Our waitress was amazing! First time dinning here and it was incredible. My only dislike was the table we were sat at was tight quarters to the tables next to us and you were kind of in the other tables conversation. I’m excited to go back when the weather gets nicer!
This is a great gem with consistent food and service. Lobster Fritters are a must!
Excellent dining in all aspects. My wife and I had a mid afternoon New Years Eve feast. Mussels, Scallops, Salads, and dessert were all terrific. Even the cocktail I had was really different and tasty (Harbor Cask I think was the name). We dine here often.
We had a great meal. Service was exceptional and my Scallops and Shrimp dish was fresh and out of this world. I would highly recommend a visit.
Always a great staple place great sunsets and water views
Great restaurant and great service. If you are looking for something beyond the ordinary, the Boat House fits the bill.
Our waitress, Jessica, and Andrew were very attentive and pleasant.
Wait staff and food were wonderful!
Wonderful service; beautiful view of the sunset. Menu lacked non seafood vegetarian options.
Calamari portion was quite small for the price. Fries were undercooked and the spinach was under seasoned.
Perfect as usual! The chourico crusted fish was amazing!
Nice venue, food is usually good, particularly the chowder, surprisingly fine beer selection. We had the fish tacos, which were tasty and fresh.
