The Stuart Boathouse is a local's favorite waterfront dining location. The beautifully restored 1920's Restaurant is located directly on the river in downtown Stuart next to the band shell. Specializing in fresh caught seafood, oysters, sushi, as well as many favorites for the land lovers. Accompany dinner with a great bottle from our wine list or one of our many signature cocktails. The Stuart Boathouse is great for special occasions or for just hanging out with some friends. The Stuart Boathouse is open seven days a week serving lunch and dinner. We also serve a fantastic breakfast on Saturday and Sunday mornings.

All tables have views of the river and we will always do our best to accommodate requests. Outside tables and window tables can not be guaranteed. We look forward to seeing you!

Decided to visit this eatery and it was a great choice. The sushi was fresh, flatbread was lite and the salads chosen by our wives was great.

Beautiful Sunday afternoon seated at the outdoor patio over looking the Stuart inlet. We listened to the music from the nearby amphitheater, sipped mimosas, and ate lunch. Mahi Mahi was outstanding, really good fries too!

I don’t understand the great reviews. The food was mediocre at best. We had tuna tartare, crab cakes, salmon and a cranberry walnut salad. The salad was the best of the bunch. Nothing else was memorable.

The view of the water and the bridge is great. Parking was tough. The waiter was pleasant and accommodating. When we said the tuna tasted old, without hesitation, he removed it from the bill.

I wouldn’t go back.

We had a LOUD party of 5 and i'll be honest, it's hard to find a place that we can all go to. Stuart Boathouse was AMAZING. The servers were so fast and super efficient. Maureen was our server along with a guy but i never caught his name. They both were amazing.

Great restaurant. Great food. Great ambience and views! My wife and I split the tomato and mozzarella (burrata actually) salad as an appetizer and it was quite good. I had the fish and chips which was very good. May sound silly, but I loved the cole slaw that it was served with. My wife, who needs to eat gluten-free, had a nice selection to choose from. She chose the skirt steak. It was a bit tough and chewy, but still liked it. We will be back for sure.

We had a table upstairs, the view was good. However a person in our party ordered a salad with salmon and she ordered the salmon to be well done, however it was not. The waitress (not very nice) took it back and we waited for 15 min for the salmon to be brought back. It was fine, however I feel it should not have taken that long. Our waitress didn't even ask if we wanted coffee or desert. But at least the food was good.

This place is awesome!!!!!
We would’ve rated everything five stars, but the service was slow. I want to emphasize that it WAS NOT our server’s fault. He was the only one working the entire upper floor. I think whoever does the scheduling should have sent to it that that wasn’t the case on a busy Friday night. Other than that, everything was superb! We will be back many times

Great location and service. Too much spinach in the beet salad and the beans with the octopus appetizer were undercooked. Otherwise great for a special occasion or date night.

Great place... really a fun place to eat however there was a lot of flies outside as soon as we got our food. We did go in to eat but would have been nice to sit outside and enjoy the water view.

Beautiful view. Food was delicious. Even though it’s a very old building, they have spruced it up to look cute. It has a “been-here-forever” vibe.

The menu is varied and has something for everyone - lots of fresh seafood, as well as steaks and chicken, salads and flatbreads, and a huge selection of appetizers.

My swordfish dish was probably the best swordfish I’ve had in a long time. The succotash that accompanied the seafood was OUTSTANDING. My dining companions got Mahi, Salmon and Fish & Chips. We all loved our food and my son claimed the Fish & Chips were some of the best he’s had.

I would definitely recommend Stuart Boathouse, and ask for a table by the window or on the deck. The view of the river is the best backdrop for a delicious dinner like this!

Loved the food! Had the overstuffed bacon wrapped shrimp, would definitely get them again. The atmosphere is very nice, however it was a little loud. There was a large group of people at the bar and their voices overtook the restaurant to the point where I could not hear the person I was with. I'm not sure if the lower ceiling made it worse, didn't seem to be anything to absorb the noise.

Outdoor seating is lovely. Overlooking the water and on Sunday there is usually good live music coming from the stage just next to the restaurant. Service was less than stellar with our main course delivered when we were about halfway through with our appetizers. One of our pet peeves that tends to cast a shadow over the experience.
