Our Rocketts Landing location occupies the top floor of the restored Power Plant building, which sits on the James River and once provided electricity for Richmond’s trolley cars. We specialize in seafood, wood-stone oven pizza, and locally-sourced signature entrees. And we can't forget the incredible view!

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.

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.

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 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
