The cuisine of the Boathouse, created with distinctive flair is refined and contemporary, with an underlying element that echoes the classical French tradition of Escoffier.

The Boathouse experience begins with a drive along the shores of beautiful West Grand Traverse Bay and its sparkling blue waters.

When you dine with us, you get the best of both worlds: We are both locavores and connoisseurs of what the rest of the world has to offer, so you get the freshest, finest ingredients from near and far. Owner Doug Kosch adheres to the "farm to table" concept.

    The entire experience wasted notch. Brian's service was excellent. My wife is a water drinking vegetarian. Her water glass was attended to, which is pretty rare these days. Plus, can't beat a Frankie cocktail...

    Always enjoy eating here. Food this time was exceptional! Had the chateaubriand and it was prepared perfectly. Also a great place for a sunset experience and last night did not disappoint.
