Boat House Waterfront Dining
Gosh, The Boat House just is totally amazing. The dining experience is superb, the diversity of the menu is fabulous, the restaurant decor is beautiful AND THE VIEW of the Sakonnet River is breathtaking. We absolutely love this restaurant.
Ate outdoors as the sun set over the Sakonnet River. Just perfect. Our simple meal was leisurely served. All dishes were good, though the salmon could have been 1 or 2 minutes less cooked.
Wonderful restaurant! Great food, service, ambiance and price!
Amazing view and service
Reservations suggested for this delightful dining experience. The site is terrific and the food, normally great. Some supply issues for seafood are impacting the menu, but there is always something for all tastes.
The view, building architecture, use of the outdoor-but-indoor tent and the patio are outstanding and provide an ambiance equal to no other RI restaurant. I say this even loving The Moorings. With The Moorings, I feel like I'm on vacation. With the Boathouse, I marvel at how fortunate I am to live in The East Bay.
BTW, the food and cocktails are also great. The waitstaff and management team are warm and friendly. An especially good practice is that multiple people bring out the table's dinners at one time so people aren't waiting.
Here's to the Newport Restaurant Group - please keep adding restaurants to your family!
I have eaten here multiple times and it has been wonderful. Last night we celebrated a family birthday and the service was mediocre at best. We waited at least 15-20 minutes in between our first and second round of drinks. Our table was not bussed well between courses and empty glasses , dirty side plates were not cleared and condensation from the drinkware soaked our table for most of the evening. It made the $300 plus dinner tab disappointing to say the least. Food and atmosphere was exceptional as usual.
Our table location was very disappointing. I asked the manager if we could please be seated in a shady area outside or instead inside. I also told her my guest cannot be seated in the sun because she is receiving chemo treatments for cancer. She was reluctant to move us & only offered a table in the shade when the present guests were finished with there there entree s& would have to wait. She said there were many reservations & couldn’t move us even though at the time tables were empty. I booked this Resy many weeks in advance & I don’t know why she would not accommodate us by giving us one of the empty tables. It was very distressing.
The food was delicious and the staff were excellent. Staff was wonderful and friendly with our 13 month old. The outdoor patio was breezy with a beautiful view. We’re excited to add the boathouse to our restaurant rotation!
Great food great water views great service. We will be back
very pushy to get you out in 90 minutes,someone kept walking by with a tablet like they were counting down the minutes,very uncomfortable,
Beautiful day and view from our table by the window. Enjoyed our food and waitress was excellent!
Their menu seems to have shortened and quality of food was ok, not great. I expect great based on the prices. Service was very good and the ambience is excellent, as always.
Food was great and server did an excellent job so we enjoyed the day
Lovely lunch on the water. Just saying No to Newport.
Terrific table on a perfect weather night. A Grey spot for dinner
I love the place , very good service , but the food is just ok
Overall good experience.
We were seated promptly at our reservation time at a beautiful table overlooking the bay. Service and food were excellent. Overall a wonder dining experience at a favorite restaurant.
The food and service were excellent. Our waitress Jenna was friendly and professional. Was spot on, with any questions. The view was great. Highly recommended
The food was absolutely delicious and worth the price. The ambiance and the view cannot be beat. This is our favorite restaurant for special occasions during the summer months. We make it a point of eating here at least once every year.
Fantastic experience. Food was fresh and delicious. The staff was very flexible and welcoming- even moved us to a window table overlooking the water.
Excellent food, excellent service, table was ready on time, great sunset.
Fantastic location and view, very good food and service. What more is there to say. It’s been that way every time I go.
Great meal & wonderful ambiance. Service was great. Will be back.
An enjoyable lunch
I reserved a table for a dinner and mentioned that it was our anniversary. We were shown to a table with a spectacular view and our waiter brought 2 glasses of bubbly. We shared an order of calamari and a Caesar salad and both were delicious. I had the swordfish and it was a healthy portion, was broiled to perfection and came with a fantastic orange sauce. My date had the lobster Mac and cheese and the serving size was enormous! We shared the lavender cream brûlée and that also was superb!
Food, service and view was outstanding...as usual!! Went for a special occasion, my husband's birthday, so they even served him with a piece of cheesecake with a candle.
We always have delicious, fresh seafood, served by wait staff who pay attention to every detail. The "Hall of Fame Chowder" is a must--rich, creamy, spicey. Shrimp Fritters were delicious and packed with pieces of shrimp. Entree of perfectly Pan Seared Karen Elizabeth Scallops was split for two with no fuss and both plates looked lovely. Scallops were perfectly cooked. And...the Honey Lavender Creme Brulee was absolutely divine.
And, of course, eating this outdoors with a perfect view of the bay made the entire visit that much more perfect. HIGHLY RECOMMEND A VISIT!
Took my family on vacation, while passing through Tiverton, Rhode Island, decided to stop at this highly recommended place for lunch. It turned out to be the highlight of our trip. It is set on the most beautiful spot on a bay… the food was spectacular.
The Boat House was excellent. It was our first time there but they greeted us like we were old friends. The outdoor patio was the perfect place to enjoy our delicious food and the service all around was outstanding.
I greatly enjoyed the lobster and short rib grilled cheese special. It was outstanding.
Excellent food, service and atmosphere! Always an excellent experience.
The Boathouse was wonderful. We celebrated our anniversary. The server was lovely. The water views are beautiful. The food is just wonderful. They have a great raw bar. I am celiac and they were able to accomodate me easily.
Outstanding service from all concerned. Food always good here.
We had raw seafood which was delicious. The scampi was spot on. The corn and lobster risotto was superb. The scallops were perfectly done, but I would delete the hot sauce on them, as t detracts/covers the delicate flavor of the mussels.
Everyone was very friendly and wished us a happy anniversary which was sweet! It was nice to see one of our favorite restaurants bustling again!
Always dependable for a nice lunch or dinner. Staff consistently friendly and professional, and can always count on the food and drinks being delicious. Thanks guys!
