We found the restaurant to be very dated
We ordered the crab dip
The chips that came with them were extremely greasy
Waitress asked us at lesser 5 times in a row if we wanted more drinks
She was quite pushy
Food was mediocre

It was a quiet Sunday night. Super cozy window seat where you could see all the Christmas Lights that the beach had displayed. Service was awesome, wine was OK, mashed potatoes were not hot, but the steak was perfect!

Still excellent location but food and service quality have gone way downhill. All seafood is frozen. Deserts too? Pasta poor quality even if fresh. Service is amateur but not unfriendly. Just not special, seems like trading on the name. Surprised they are allowed to hold franchise at this level.

We enjoyed a beautiful view and selected 3 different dishes to share between us. The seafood soup, crab dip and ravioli. Everything was delicious but the ravioli wasn’t hot at all. The server graciously took it back to get it warmed up. Flavour was fantastic but wasn’t warm second time either. Really appreciated the service. Will come back as soon as we can!

Our third Christmas Dinner at The Boathouse. Nice place to go for ambience. My disappointment is the Christmas Turkey Dinner. Discovered on arrival that the dinner was exactly the same as previous year. Unfortunately that was one of the worst dinners I've had in any restaurant. The turkey is ground/chopped into a mishmash of stuffing etc. So, consequently ordered Prime Rib which was good but not what I look forward to for Christmas Dinner.

A beautiful location for Christmas dinner. It was snowing and all the lights at the beach gave it a magical quality. Service was good. Dinner was a set menu with lots of selection. The steak and lobster thermidor was excellent. Crème brûlée was a big hit at our table. I would definitely do this again.

Prime rib was tough, gristly and a tad over salted. Salmon excellent. Crème brûlée excellent. Caesar salad light on cheese and no bacon. Garlic mashed potato’s yum.

The Christmas turkey dinner was so good and one of the best turkey dinners I've had at a restaurant. It was worth every penny. The service was very good as well. Very friendly and just the right amount of attention.

Food has been better in the past. My mixed grill was on the pricey side but not amazing. At least they could have added more than one vegetable. Husband's lamb shank looked better than my seafood.

Service was absolutely horrible. I had ordered a miso halibut and the fish was not fresh. Texture was off and it was not worth the price. Server was rude and didn't even come back to check on us.
