Food (gluten free bolognese and salmon) was excellent. Drinks were good. Noise level was very good for first date conversation. Definitely will go back.

We stopped on our way home from Blithewold. Lovely view. Good food. Lovely atmosphere. Nice brunch options. We met a group of women at Blithewold and told them about the Boathouse. They ended up sitting next to us in the restaurant.

Our favorite place to dine.
We have been dining at the Boathouse since it’s opening.
They are excellent at catering to those who have a gluten allergy( celiac disease). Very attentive staff.

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.

Thanksgiving day at the Boathouse was relaxing with good views of the water and bridge; the menu gave the option of having the traditional turkey; but we opted for the regular menu choices. My salmon was cooked to perfection with long string beans blanched just right over wild rice the perfect combination and was delicious. Everyone gave rave reviews of the meal and the choice of restaurant. Thanks.

Another great meal at The Boathouse. This was my first time back since the seasonal menu change and it did not disappoint. The braised beef short rib was incredible-cooked to perfection and my friend had the bolognese which was fantastic as well. Delicious wine list to compliment, all topped off with a delicious pumpkin cheesecake. Blissful!
