Excellent food. Had swordfish and it was great. My wife had paella and it was loaded with seafood. A great place to watch the sunset. We go there often.

They had a table over looking the water waiting for us. Our waitress was very nice and offered great suggestions. The drinks and courses arrived in a timely manner. A prefect start to our 41st anniversary celebration!

In the Tiverton area, there is nothing better. It's our go-to place when we can get a reservation.
Make sure you call a day or so ahead. This place is very popular.

Brian, our server, was exceptional. He knew the menu inside and out and was able to offer recommendations. The view is amazing. The food is very good - limited offerings for us vegetarians - more, obviously, on the brunch mennu.

Top shelf! Cocktails are perfectly prepared and good size! 3 of us had braised short ribs which were super tender and delicious, but we were all amazed by the fabulous fish and chip plate of our fourth member. Best any of us have ever had, and we are locals. If you like creamy chowders, both the regular clam and the special award winning chowder we absolutely delicious! The scale did not like me in the morning, but I don't do it often.

Always a treat - great water view of the Bay, especially nice outdoor dining weather-permitting. Attentive wait staff. Quality food. Great dessert menu. Nice place for a romantic dinner for two or get-together with friends.

My husband and I brought my brother and sister-in-law to the Boathouse for dinner. Our experience was great. We were even happier knowing that we had Leslie as our waitress. She is outstanding, professional, and has a great sense of humor.

When in Rhode Island we like to stop in at the Boat House. So relaxing with waterside dining. All the Narragansett Group restaurants are fantastic!
We took our son and his girlfriend to lunch while we were visiting for the weekend. Everything was wonderful from start to finish. Service was 1st class.

The Open Table reservation gave 2 table choices, regular and high top. We selected regular but were given a high top. The Boat House said this information is not relayed to them and that we should have called the restaurant directly. If that is the case, the selection should not be offered online or there should be instructions to call the restaurant. There were no regular tables available and it was very uncomfortable sitting at a high top.

This was a special celebration and when we were seated I had told the waiter that we wanted a leisurely meal. When we placed our order we asked for the appetizer that the meal would not come out to quickly and within 5 minutes our main entree was served, very disappointing. We both felt rushed and when we ordered dessert we felt rushed to pay for the meal. The view was amazing and the restaurant was very clean and the food was good. The music and noise level was very loud so this is not a romantic place. If I were to return I would go for lunch hopefully not be so rushed as it is so beautiful that you should be able to relax and enjoy the experience of the surroundings.

Very good. Server was very efficient and pleasant. Manager (new?) was very busy and attentive, however he served our oysters and failed to tell us which were which, he zoomed off so quickly he didn’t hear us ask. The servers always explain and pause. I think the Manager should step in to serve only when necessary; he isn’t privy to the dialogue that led to our order decisions.

Very disappointed that we didn’t get a window seat. We stated our request when we made the reservation, it was a special night and it was early, a week night and we arrived 15 minutes early. The center of the room was empty and most of the back booths were empty. Many of the dinners at the windows had just been seated. We were offered the absolute worse table - one of us would get a prime view of the rest rooms and we’d both need to put up with kitchen clatter and staff at the computer station. It was as if zero thought had gone into our request. The next two dinners also declined the table!

Had a great time with friends that my husband and I have not seen in a long time. We talked and laughed together and truly enjoyed your meal. Between the services, the food and the atmosphere, everything was just perfect. I will definitely recommend the boat house to anyone looking for some place to get together with friends or just for two.

We have always loved it there. It it was lacking, food not cooked properly, no one checking in, having to ask other servers to get us basics like salt and pepper. Three times being told he manager would check in but nothing. I’ll stick with the Caesar salad, wine and enjoy the view. Win win

Always a great spot for upscale dining with outstanding service and lively vibe. Bar is awesome and drinks are mixed perfectly. View is to die for. Management is always visible and will quickly respond to any situation. Great seafood, steaks and paella. Favorite dessert to share is a brownie with salted caramel sauce. Need reservations.

I have enjoyed the Boathouse for years, but the food and service are slipping. $44 lobster was very over cooked. Salmon was over cooked. No one, neither server nor manager, came by to check on us during the meal so we could point it out.

Boat House is a great place no matter what the occasion! It is always very busy on the weekends so reservations are a must. The location is superb, on the waterfront, where boats can dock in front of the restaurant during the summer months. The service is always excellent, and this particular time we had Nancy as our server. She is very pleasant and friendly while at the same time very professional. We will ask for her again the next time we visit. I hope this review is shared with her. She is special!
