The dining experience has change at this restaurant. Employee's standing around talking. The result was slow service. Employees playing and touching each other's head no hand washing. Young man in the kitchen area drinking milk while food being prepared. Another young man touch his nose then proceeded to talk a food order.
Our first time having brunch at The Boathouse was EXCELLENT!
Always enjoy the Boathouse at Rocketts Landing. Really enjoy the Sunday brunch with the Omelette Bar - it may well be the best omelette in town.
We celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary. One year ago we had our wedding reception at The Boathouse. Excellent food and service as always.
Perfect place for brunch until it gets busy. The line for the omelet station runs into the dining area. There is a good chance that someone waiting in line will join your conversation because they will be standing over top of your table.
My wife and I choose the Boathouse simply because we had never been before. I can say it was a wonderful first experience, as we had hoped. The food was delicious. The service was amazing. The views were to die for. We are definitely going again. The only negative is the parking, but it is Richmond VA the worst parking city in the U.S. The Boathouse was wondering I highly recommend it.
Food was delicious, and drink were on the spot! We had the best red velvet cake/cheesecake dessert that has ever been created!
Overall Great experience
We had a great late Vday they even kept the menu for us !!
Valentine weekend menu was available, my companion had duck while I has rack of lamb. Food was good, not extraordinary, portion of lamb much larger than the duck. Best part of the meal was calamari appetizer. Beautiful setting, would have been less stressful if GPS did not lead us to closed off roads and had darkness not set in so early, much prefer this place in summer or daylight to enjoy the view. Cucumber basil martini a favorite of mine. Service was excellent, friendly and efficient.
The food was expensive, but was the best steak we have ever eaten. The salad, potatoes and asparagus were very good, too. I think a piece of bread would be a nice addition. The special Valentine's Day dessert was delicious. The views of the James River are awesome. I was skeptical of the whole experience, knowing the cost, but was very pleased with the location, easy parking, wait staff, food and views. I would definitely go there again.
Our server Garret was very welcoming and friendly. I ordered the steamed shrimp appetizer which was 0.5 lb which was $14 and a side of mashed potatoes. He asked if I wanted the full portion which I assumed was the $14 appetizer so I said yes without hesitation. After receiving my bill, there was an extra $14 added onto the appetizer. I was unhappy about the up-charge. There should’ve been some type of communication about the upcharge . Other than that Garrett was a great server
Great service, food was prompt and delicious. Our waitress was attentive and polite.
The food and service was awesome!
Boathouse at Rockett's Landing is a favorite with us; food and service are very good and it is always an enjoyable time.
Food was really good. Nice place to go for special occasions.
Everything was awesome. The food was very tasty, the staff was super nice.
Very nice atmosphere with the river views a plus. Always enjoy the selection of food and also the after dinner coffee.
This was an exceptional choice to celebrate my girlfriends birthday. The staff were very pleasant and really helped with the whole feel. They were extremely attentive. Best restaurant experience I have had by far. Also, the food was incredible!
Great plave with a beautiful view of the James River. Very rich and vibrant environment. Food is good but needs more variety and prices are a little high for the quality of food offered
