Boat House Waterfront Dining
Beautiful setting and scenery.
Our waiter Cean was enjoyable and made good recommendations. It was unfortunate the kitchen staff brought out our meals before we finished our appetizers and we were too full to enjoy our entrees. The restaurant was very crowded and I’m sure the kitchen was rushed, but it was a disappointment. However, for all the times we dine here, this was the first let-down.
Also - the Budina is outstanding!
Tim was a great server. Food and atmosphere were outstanding. Would definitely recommend.
Beautiful restaurant on the water. Service was excellent.
Can't beat the location. Food is solid but a little pricey.
What a wonderful evening! Food was delicious and came out exactly as ordered. The service was perfect. Would definitely return.
We booked our 41 wedding anniversary dinner
Perfect setting and delicious sword fish dinner
And Scallop meal
We got the window table we requested. We came for a late lunch (2:30) which was perfect bec the noise was much less bec a few tables were still open. We had a wonderful waiter. I wish i could remember his name. Tall, dark haired, dark shadow/beard. Very, very attentive and helpful.
all I can say is best lobster roll I have EVER had! The lobster was perfect with just enough mayo and the roll was hot and fresh. The drinks were delicious as well- try the basil gimlet!
Food and atmosphere were absolutely fantastic. We ordered mussels as an appetizer (delicious!), however, they were filled with sand. The manager was fantastic and comped the mussels as well as gave us a complementary dessert!
Our Office made reservations for a "farewell" dinner for one of our Colleagues, who had accepted a new position. It was everyone's first time at The Boat House and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We were seated directly next to a bay window, which had the most stunning view. A wonderful way to end a hectic work week. Our Server was attentive & polite, despite a busy night for the restaurant. Food and drinks arrived in a good amount of time, with food portion sizes being just a tad smaller than the average/standard amount. We had requested, upon making our reservation, for a dessert to be delivered to our Colleague w/a special message. It arrived at the perfect time and looked absolutely amazing. (Thank You). The only complaint we had was (1) how close/tight all the tables were to each other, even the outside patio seats. Because it was such a busy night, it really stood out. For example, our table was close to the bar area and when a member in our party, wanted to go to the Ladies Room, she had to wait until the person at the bar, pushed in her barstool, before she could stand up to go.
The ambiance was beautiful, (although the clamor was a bit loud, but again, I think this was partially due to being a busy night) the setting & location was perfect and we all agreed, that even though it was a bit pricey, we would definitely all go back there again.
Great food, great service, good ambiance.
Would prefer to lie & give them a bad rating so it would be easier to get a reservation—can’t do that to such a wonderful restaurant!
Requested and received a window seat. Food was excellent - scallops and filet cooked perfectly. Service very good.
Overall it was very nice. We arrived early and was able to seat outside and have a drink from the bar. That was fantastic. We thought they’d come and get us but that never happened. A few minutes after our reservation we inquired and were seated right away. There were vacant tables, so I do wonder why we weren’t called to be seated. The food was excellent. We were disappointed that the Ceviche wasn’t available. That was surprising because it was early in the evening. The service was exceptional.
Way too pricey for what little food you get. Overall, great view, great service, and the roughly ten bites of food before I was done were amazing. However, 34 dollars for five scallops is not really ideal.
Great sunsets, great food and fantastic service. 5 stars all the way.
Stood at the outside bar for a while without any acknowledgement, not even a look, and it wasn't busy.
Also took awhile to get going with our server, though after that, the service was awesome, the food was too and the evening was very pleasant. All around great experience.
Always my "go to" place in the area. I lived in Portsmouth for a while and now back in Chicago.
The service was excellent and the views were, as always, outstanding. Food was great and I'll definitely come back.
It’s always amazing at the Boathouse! It’s my favorite NRG restaurant. Love it all year round, but especially in the summer
Wonderful first time experience. Delicious food, great atmosphere will definitely be back. Highly recommend. Love the indoor-outdoor setting. Nice casual higher scale dining.
Attentive helpful staff, great food and relaxing atmosphere
Had a lovely lunch, beautiful view, and great service from Holly. Highly recommend.
The view is gorgeous but all 3 times I have eaten there the food has been lousy... over cooked seafood and even a burnt burger... Go for a cocktail and the view...
The Boat House is a beautiful venue with great ambiance, a nice drink menu and good food. The service is consistently sub par. The drinks are slow to be delivered, often after the appetizer is half eaten,
The food is always very good to excellent as is the service and the waterside location is outstanding. It should be a "must" on your dining list.
Food was delicious and if you can get a table outside, view is lovely.
We had a very nice time, sat outside with a beautiful view of the river and much less noise than inside. The food was delicious, esp the clam chowder (although it could definitely use more clams) and lobster salad, which was all lobster, no filler, on my caesar salad.
Had a delicious brunch with a beautiful view of the water, and excellent service, too.
Great food and location/ view!
Made reservations for a Friday night for our anniversary. We had a seat looking at the water. Service was great and the food was amazing! Filet was cooked to my liking and wife’s seafood dish was tasty.
Food was delicious.Outdoor seating was perfect. Nathan was excellent!
The Fish and Chips was poor... very little fish inside
The view from every space is framed by sky and water. Wonderful menu, wonderful service. This could become our new home away from home.
A great experience all around. I strongly recommend this restaurant.
Absolute joy! When I made the reservation on OT, only high top tables were available, but I took a chance anyway. Requested a luncheon table for 5 for out of town family at the windows by the water and they delivered a regular corner table with the windows open! Whoohooo! Score! We had a great view and bonus of 20+ (we counted) cigarette boats racing and parading on the water! The food was fantastic (lobster and fish tacos). Reasonably priced, not gouging. Our waitress was amazing, very pleasant and personable, as she was very attentive but not too much. We are repeat diners and are never disappointed here. I highly recommend the Boat House!
Really enjoyed our evening. Wonderful waiter who was attentive and helpful throughout the meal.
5 stars thank you best service ever
Wonderful attentive service, excellent food, great views. We loved it!
Dinner was delicious and sitting right by the window was wonderful. Thank you to Tim our waiter for being awesome.
