View was great but it all went downhill from there. Out of everything we wanted and the food we did get was average and over-priced. Take a walk on the boardwalk and eat somewhere else.

Thank you for your feedback Bert. That great view you enjoyed isn't free, and does come at a price. Enjoy your walk on the beautiful Lakewalk. We wish you the best, and stay safe and healthy in 2020.

Thank you for the review, Karen! Our outdoor dining is the place to be, so that can cause some delays in reservations. We appreciate your patience!

Food and cocktails were excellent! The restaurant space is lovely

We waited 20 minutes after being seated and then requested the hostess send a server to our table. Immediately a server arrived and aplogized for the confusion. Service was impeccable after that point.

Food was not that great but atmosphere was awesome. Service was spectacular. For drinks this is a great place. For an awesome meal try Pickwick instead.

I'm sorry you feel that way. Pickwick is also a great small, independent restaurant like ours, so we hope you enjoy! Take care, stay safe and healthy! We wish you the best.

Lovely setting with attentive staff unfortunately the entrees were served lukewarm at best. It was an outdoor space which may have contributed to food cooking.

Responded 4 days ago

Thank you for the review! Yes, that is the unfortunate draw back to outdoor dining on Lake Superior. We do cover all the food from our kitchen to your table to help maintain temperature, but once it's on your table its at the whim of mother nature. Take care, and stay healthy!

Lack of enough kitchen staff caused us to leave since we would have had an excessive wait.

Responded 6 days ago

Hello Paul! I'm not sure what you're referring to, as we do not have a lack of kitchen staff. What we do have is a very popular weekend brunch restaurant, and amazing made-from-scratch food that does take time to prepare to our high standards. We wish you the best, and please stay safe and healthy in 2020!

It was our first time eating at a restaurant since February. Boat Club did an amazing job using outdoor patio space/dock. Our server did an excellent job making sure we felt comfortable, the food was amazing and I pray that others support Boat Club so they can remain in business. Thank you for taking so much care and effort so we could have a lovely evening!!!

Don't bother making an outdoor reservation. We waited at the hostess stand for 15 minutes with no movement and 6 groups ahead of us. We also heard some people complaining they had been waiting 2 hours for their food.
