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!

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

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.

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:)

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!

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.

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.

My wife and I ‘discovered’ The Boathouse about a half a dozen years ago and whenever we are able to find our way up to Westport/Dartmouth, MA we always save one night for dinner at the Boat House. It’s an upscale casual scene, with a great view when the sun is up, a great staff and very tasty meals.
It’s such a great place.
