The French fries were good plain grated cabbage would have been just as flavorful. The waitress, however, was excellent as she tended to our needs without being overbearing. She even brought refills on my drink without my having to ask - something I don't see in a lot of restaurants.

Service friendly but very slow. Had to move to a second table DUE to rocking table. Second table rocked less but rocked. Quality of food very good but portion small and price too high. Noise level very high. Sorry. Won't come back after this my third try.

The food quality has been consistently delicious, although a bit pricey. Scallops always taste fresh and have never been served overcooked, which is often an issue at seafood restaurants. The view of the river really adds to the ambiance, particularly when it's warm enough to dine in the outside seating.

Lovely spot with a great view. Sadly their pricing is over the top and they offer very few wines by the glass.

WE had the broiled seafood combination which was delicious. The spinach salad was fresh and of high quality. Portions are large. We had an amazing chocolate cake with a cheesecake center layer. We traveled from New Jersey on our way to SC. We were very pleasantly surprised to find this restaurant. The staff is friendly and attentive. The only negative is the parking. Although they have lots of parking it is still not enough. You have to walk across the main road and park in one of the neighborhoods.

The meal started with a delicious appetizer, a dozen raw oysters, and followed with delicious entrees.

The server, Sierra, was absolutely fantastic. Very responsive, very friendly.

The ambiance of this restaurant is as good as it gets. The most fantastic view in all of the Richmond/Tri-cities area (though fog took away our view the other night.

My husband and I enjoyed celebrating our anniversary at The Boathouse. The ambiance was perfect. We were seated by a window that gave a great view of the Appomatox River while we dined. The wine we requested for the table was in place a chilled to the perfect temperature. The waitress who served us was pleasant and attentive. The food was delicious. I enjoyed the Maine lobster stuffed with a crab cake with mashed potatoes and asparagus for the sides. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his file mignon and it was cooked to perfection to his specifications.

I would certainly recommend The Boathouse at City Point to anyone looking for a wonderful venue for an anniversary or any other celebration. You will not be disappointed.

We had never been to Hopewell before, so it was an adventure. Once we found the restaurant, we had a lovely Valentine's Day dinner. The small details, like heart shaped vegetables, made it particularly special. We plan to come back in the warmer months so we can try dinner on the deck.

Oysters were REALLY small and over priced for that reason. I like small rather than large oysters but these were too small. Also, we were very disappointed that the fried zuchinni appetizer is no longer on the menu. Please bring back! Other than that, we enjoyed our visit.

Was excited to try the newest Boathouse restaurant in Hopewell. Had not been in that restaurant location since it was the Navigators Den many years ago. Our waitress Nell was excellent and the meals we picked were quite good. Was there for our belated 30th anniversary with our friends. Would highly recommend this setting. Can’t wait to return for lunch to see the water view.

Food was excellent, the facilities clean and attractive and the staff very friendly. The highlight of the evening was our wonderful server, Bailey. She was delightful, efficient and quite personable. She handled several tables, but treated us as if we were her only guests that night. We’ll be back asking for Bailey, again.

My guests was not happy with the servers. The food was not worth the prices that we had to pay. The food was burned and half cooked all at same time. The manager had to come the table several times before the food was not prepared correctly.
I will have to continue to Patronize the Short Pump location even though the Hopewell location is closer to me.
