The Sunday Brunch was great. Excellent price! Service was fantastic. Staff all were very friendly. Definitely will be going back again soon
So, what is not to love about Rockets Landing Boathouse....sitting outside on the RIVA and partaking in those wonderful 1/2 carafe brunch cocktails! Fabulous. I would stay away from the make your own omelet and opt for anything seafood. The Calamari here is fresh, cooked right and the aoli accompanying it is on point (and I try calamari and mussels everywhere). The green goddess oysters so yum, and the mussels also a big win. IF you must the hamburger is good quality...been a minute sine I had last visited and I can say I was pleased.
Four of us went for a birthday brunch. We had a nice booth by the window. The server was pretty slow getting things started. She brought water and then left for what seemed like a long time before taking drink order. Once we ordered drinks, 2 bloody Mary’s and 1 glass of wine, again it took a while but finally the server returned with just the wine saying the bar would have the drinks ready soon. It wasn’t particularly busy, so there was really no excuse for drinks taking so long. Fried calamari was definitely the highlight of the meal. Bread came to the table only after we had to request it. This is so dumb on the part of a restaurant to require that people order bread! Other than calamari we each ordered salads - all were pretty ordinary, nothing at all special. Salads are easy to make great and there are so many fabulous salads served in Richmond, this was pretty disappointing. I won’t bother to return - it’s too bad because this is one of the only riverfront restaurants we have.
This was my first time, but expected more out of the food. I had Shrimp and Grits with little Grits "not expensive " and shrimp was overcooked. The Crab and Artichoke dip was weak on artichoke and crab. Chalk it up to a bad night and try again.
Best place for the money. Food was exceptional. Best service by far.
First time dining with Boathouse. Despite being cloudy, the view of the city was incredible! Our server Sharif was truly exceptional. Best service I’ve had at a restaurant in a very long time
Overall it was a very pleasant fine dining experience. Ashley, our server, was phenomenal. She was extremely attentive, yet not overbearing, while simultaneously managing numerous tables.
My lobster, spinach and potatoes were perfectly prepared & presented. I would have granted 5 stars, but my "Peach" Bellini was filled with Strawberries (no peach) and my filet (requested to be prepared Medium) was charred giving it a more burnt taste. I am excited to return for Sunday Brunch. Besides, I love the Boathouse!
The bar service was very slow. As soon as I received my drink I put in an order for another one. Not my waiters fault.
Food and service was highly exceptional. Would recommend to anyone visiting Richmond for the first time.
Great food. Excellent friendly service. Just a bit on the expensive side.
Great place for either drinks on the balcony overlooking the river or a nice sit down meal. Friendly service and good food!
Sunday Brunch fare. While the food was good the Waffle Bar and Omelette Bar was poorly ‘set up’ and rather chaotic as to was supposed to stand ‘where’ while waiting for their food.
Also interior testers very noisy.
Six friends getting together after not seeing each other for over two years. One couple was up here from SC. The woman had recently finished up a grueling six months of chemo for Stage IV cancer. We had a chance to all catch up and offer our support and love all in an atmosphere that was very comfortable It was a wonderful experience and we all had been there in the past. Always impeccable service and food so delicious. Love the coffee presses. Our only negative is that the music is a bit too loud making it difficult to converse and hear each other without straining.
One of our most favorite places in Richmond. lways treat out-of-towners to this venue.
Came to celebrate our sons birthday. Had appetizers and desserts. All were amazing!
Great food & fantastic view. It's a little on the pricey side, but not too astronomical. The ambience and service were great. It was almost warm enough to sit outside by the river and in hindsight, I almost wish we had, so that's reason enough to go back.
I will return and dine with you again. Service was so so
Good food and great service. Would eat there again.
Nice place ,everybody is smiling and the food is good
I would recommend The Boathouse. The crab cakes are out of this world. The view, especially on a nice sunny evening, is spectacular. Service is excellent. The noise level might bother some people, but we did not have trouble hearing each other. We were there on a Sunday evening.
Great food good service and great prices . Wait for oysters was long. Ran out of some food 🥘 by 2:30 reservation
Outstanding as usual. The Boathouse staff made a special evening an exceptional one. Thank you.
Service was great, as well as the food. Upon arriving for our reservation we found out they were about 30 mins behind schedule. They went above and beyond to make sure they made up for the delay. Would highly recommend!
The food, service and view was fantastic. The restaurant was very noisy. That may have been because it was brunch.
Good service, good brunch, oyster half shell specials
Our Sunday brunch was very good as usual, great omelettes and sides available. I was disappointed to see price increases on the dinner menu, especially the $10 jump to $79 for the chilled seafood platter which is one of my favorites. May have to forgo that in the future.
Expensive and food was nothing spectacular but tasted good. If you want the ambience/atmosphere of eating by the water it's ok. Would not recommend for the food. Parking is bad, you will have to pay for valet on a weekend.
This is the best place to eat out in RVA!! My husband and I only go out to eat on a special occasion. We both are weight conscious and I love to cook. So when we do go out to a restaurant, I want atmosphere and delicious food. It's also nice to be served ...This place is always our fav.
Delicious food. Everything we had was great! The place is a little noisy and hard to hear people at the other end of a table, but a great place for special occasions!
Good for drinks and appetizers and sit outside. Entrees were nothing to write home about.
Super loud atmosphere, food was good, not great. However the service (Hannah K) was a reason to come back for sure!
Love the view and the overall experience. Food quality is good and selections on premium cocktails is very broad. A great way to spend a Friday sunset.
Great dining location the ambiance cannot get any better in Richmond. The food was excellent. My only complaint was that one of the workers kept walking around with an iPad checking to see if people were eating or finishing up with their meals, so they could update wait times and seating. She walked past our table 6 times. It made us feel rushed and more like we were a number rather than guests at the restaurant.
We had delicious drinks and meal. Only one little mistake where my friend was overcharged for something. The waitress quickly took care of the problem, but did not apologize.
Great food and portion sizes! Beautiful view!
our server was amazing!! Great food, beautiful location!!
We had a great waiter name Danny!!! He is an asset to the restaurant.. The manager was awesome also. He came and spoke to us about Casa del Barco, on his recommendation we well be visting that establishment in the near future.
Shrimp on the grill too long making them tough.....
Wife and I visiting Richmond and went for a leisurely evening of fine dining. Great scenery. Very good service. We had a lovely evening.
Excellent service, beautiful location, great food. The only negative was value- slightly higher priced when compared to other similar experiences in our opinion. Would save this restaurant for a special occasion rather than a regular place to visit.
