    Sadly after being excited by the recent review I found the overall experience to be disappointing. The service was disinterested at best, the food was average, the evening was a saved by the location which is lovely. In city with a thousand choices, I would not choose this one.

    Its all about the ambience. Second to none and not a bad seat in the restaurant. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. Service was efficient but not rushed and the staff was friendly. The place was packed and the patrons were exuberant-it was a fun vibe. Interesting menu of all the classics but i would describe the food as Meh but certainly not terrible as some critics write. In matter of fact the fish dishes, especially the crab cake, were excellent and the desserts are quite good. Will definitely be going back especially during Spring and Fall to enjoy the milieu.

    The experience at the Boathouse was exceptional. The one thing that I never enjoyed at the previous Boathouse was the food, which was mediocre, at best. The food that we ate yesterday was amazing, Everything that we ordered was exceptional. The other difference is that our waiter, Sonny, and his support staff were so friendly and attentive and informative about the menu. We will return many times and will recommend the restaurant to many friends. Thank you!

    It’s a beautiful restaurant with a beautiful view. However there was no place to put my purse on. If there is no extra chairs or a purse hook under the table, you could hang your purse or a hat on back of your chair. But this restaurant has round back chairs, so you can’t hang anything. It’s very annoying. Who wants to put their nice, expensive purse on the floor? The food was tasty but the portions were rather small. So if you want a beautiful lake view and are not so hungry, this is a perfect restaurant!
