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.

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!

Everything was great until what I’m assuming was a bar crawl of sloppy drunk people came in carrying their own drinks? There must have been over 30 people crammed into a tiny space between the bar and the tables. We were having a great dinner until they came in I couldn’t even stand up to leave because a group of drunk women were literally directly behind me screaming about how they hadn’t seen each other in a year blah blah. It was great until then, it totally killed the mood. We literally couldn’t get out fast enough, that was our first time there so I don’t know if that’s a usual scenario for that place but it was disappointing to say the least.

Edamame for an appetizer tasted great!
The almond crusted swordfish was amazing.
The mahi tacos were really good, although they were spicier than anticipated.

My biggest issue with the restaurant was the fact that no one that I saw coming in to the restaurant had a mask on. My party wore masks until we got to our table. While waiting for the restroom, I observed the two female bartenders. One had her mask around her neck and the other's mask was covering only her mouth. I also saw two waiters waiting for drinks with their masks around their necks rather than on their faces.

In addition, the meals were pricey and the portions were small. I ordered soup that I needed to return to be heated through. My crab cake appetizer was very, very small and lacked flavor. My husband ordered scallops. He got four medium sized scallops as his portion. We made the trip from West Palm Beach to go to this restaurant.

Dinner was delicious. We were seated right away and lingered after our meal just talking and enjoying each other’s company. We never felt rushed and will definitely go back.

We were seated right away even though we were early for our reservation. We were seated exactly where we wanted to be. We were immediately approached by our server for our drink requests. The service was quick even though it was a Sunday afternoon. The food was served hot and on time. Our food was quite eye appealing and generous in portion. M
We will return.

Always a great experience! The food is fantastic and the service is dynamite. I highly recommend the Boathouse Signature Trio and the Grouper Florentine. See if you can get Marsha as your server. A wonderful personality and very indulgent. I'd recommend Stuart Boathouse to anyone and everyone.

Everything was great! Super nice place. My only issue was that the oysters were super small and priced super high. May be it's not oyster season. The menu did say MP (market price), so I guess I should have asked... $20 dollar for 1/2 dozen (tinny little sad oyster too)!

The food is delightful. So many items to choose from. Rio, our waiter was great. Personable and knowledgeable. The manager had greeted us at the door. Both gentlemen are an asset to the company. We have been here many times when we come down to Florida. Keep up the Good Work!!!

Great time! Our waitress, Marsha, was so nice, accomodating, informative, and truly did everything she could to make our evening pleasant. When we arrived, we were seated at a table outside with not much of a view, we informed the hostess that we were from out of town and would really love a table closer to the water. She got the manager and he went to seat us at what I would say is the best table in the house. It was a boat-shaped booth, so nice right on the water! The food was delicious, the drinks were amazing, such a genuinely amazing time. We cannot wait to come back.
