Beautiful night, great service, seafood fettuccini was perfect but the baked stuffed lobster was dry and the cheesecake wasn’t up to NRG standards

great as always! Only wish they would guarantee outdoors if you want only outdoor dining when you book the reservation. I had to wait until arrival to be sure I would be seated outdoors (otherwise I would not stay as I am not eating indoors anywhere.)

We love the Boathouse! We live in MA and went for lunch twice in one week while on vacation. Service (Morgan and Eric), food and view cannot be beat. Restaurant is set up very responsibly for safe social distancing. Cannot wait to return. Laurie and David.

We opted for an early lunch to celebrate our anniversary as a tropical storm was approaching. Our meal on the back deck was lovely. Our server was knowledgeable, efficient, and friendly. The drinks and food were delicious. We come here often and can say the current chef is great.

For being a seafood restaurant I was very disappointed. The scallops and lobster were both over cooked and rubbery.

The overall experience was nice. Our table was the closest to the water view outside on the patio. Very beautiful and clearly you pay for the view. Most people's portions were very good size and commented they were delicious. I got the cod which seems to be very overpriced at $30 (the most expensive item ordered at our table) and also the smallest portion. Cod is not an expensive fish so not sure why it's so overpriced. It was tasty though.

The only complaint I have is that I called the restaurant the day of the reservation (which I had made weeks in advance) to confirm we would get a table outside (which we feel safer at right now due to COVID-19). The woman who answered the phone said they could not guarantee that which was a little unsettling but thankfully worked out fine in the end. But I did also mention it was my mother's birthday and asked if they do anything for birthdays. She said yes and would make a note of it and I said great since I wanted my mom to be surprised. As soon as we sat down at the table that evening, the waitress said 'I hear it's someone's birthday..." which literally took away any surprise that we were hoping for when they bring out the little cheesecake at the end. That was a bit disappointing and frustrating since I had mentioned I wanted it to be a surprise. But overall, the location is beautiful.

This was our second time at the Boathouse since moving to the area and both times were wonderful. The staff was attentive and kind, they also wished us a Happy Anniversary several times (I actually forgot I put that comment in our reservation so a nice touch). Our meals were excellent and flavorful. I have already recommended this restaurant as one of our top picks in the area to friends and family.

Went for my boyfriend and I’s anniversary. Sat inside by a huge open window with an awesome view. It was a little rainy so it was nice to be inside but still feel practically outside. The food was very expensive but we go to Newport restaurant group sister restaurants frequently that are just as expensive so the high prices were expected. The shrimp fritters were to die for so I will be getting those again soon 😆. Once we got our check we ordered one more round of drinks and were able to take them outside where we sat right on the water in there Adirondack chairs, that was one of the best parts! The server was very sweet and professional. Overall our experience was great, especially on a special day for us! We will most defiantly go back!

It was our first restaurant dinner since Covid 19 started. We were very comfortable with staff wearing masks and we did sit inside but was next to a large open window looking at the water. Lovely
