Great food, great service. But if you are offered the table back by the fireplace, stay clear or have short sleeves on.

Wonderful meal on a snowy, icy night. Excellent service throughout. Fried seafood platter was delicious - oysters, shrimp, crab cake...hush puppies (divine). The Boathouse never disappoints!

We usually have a good experience here. However, due to the advertised 50% off entree deal, it was very crowded. Our table was not ready so we sat at the bar for a drink. After 10 minutes or so, we decided to stay there as our table still was not ready. and we were comfortable. My husband order an appetizer - after about 30 minutes, we asked about it. Apparently it had been sitting at the window but no wait staff got it to us. So they made a new one. In the meantime our food arrived. My husband's scallops were excellent. My burger, ordered medium, was well done. Then the oyster app arrived (which they kindly offered to comp to us because of the delay). Our bartender and others were all very nice and the atmosphere was good. I am hoping this was an anomaly because of the crowd.

I always love the ambience of this place along with the food. However the food just didn’t taste to good on Sunday. The crab cakes were falling apart, the mash potatoes and asparagus were greasy looking and tasting. They set the crab cakes on top of the mash potatoes and also the asparagus, so they ended up tasting greasy also. I don’t think I will be coming back anytime soon. They are to pricey for the food not to be up to par. I am greatly disappointed in The Boathouse!😪

We waited over 45 minutes for our table and were told by the hostess that the manager would come to our table but they never did. I ordered a steak medium and it was very flavorful with the sauces and sides but it was well done.

It was New Year's Eve so we expected to wait a little, but we had reservations for almost 9pm. Didn't get sat until after 10pm. Figured we'd be out in time to spend the new year somewhere else. Didn't get out until 11:50pm. No where to wait, and couldn't get to the bar for a drink. Otherwise, everyone was friendly and seemed to be hustling throughout the night. Food was very good. Might need a bit more staff next year or maybe don't overbook.. We'll be back but not on NYE.

Steak was wonderful! Service started great but ended poorly even though traffic in restaurant was slowing. Server seemed to be slowing down and not as attentive. Took forever to even get a check.

Boathouse met our expectations based on other recommendations. Meeting expectations is in our opinion
a high level of satisfaction both in the menu and in the service. Thanks for an enjoyable evening.

Average dining experience at top end price. Scallops were good, everything else was bland . Simple thing but cocktail sauce for seafood has to be applied with knife its so thick. Very average food at high end price.

We had a reservation for our business group dinner and had to wait 50 minutes because the party in front of us would not leave. I believe management should have stepped in and nicely explained that our party was waiting for that table.

The ambiance (Christmas décor) was outstanding, and the server was knowledgeable regarding the specials, items on the menu and wine list. While I am sure this is expected in a quality restaurant, our table wanted for nothing at our annual Christmas gathering! The appetizers we ordered, especially the oysters, were top-notch and crowd pleasers. The entre selection on the menu offered a large variety of items, and my crab cake-topped shrimp were done just right. The sides, grilled asparagus and house potatoes were perfect with the seafood. Others in our party had the salmon or seafood platter - their plates were clean! Finally, the desserts were equally awesome. We had the crème brule. The only negative is the portion could have been larger.

Food and service were very good, but even though I requested a table by the window with a view, the hostess seated us at the worst table possible. Very disappointing experience for me and my date. I don’t know if I’ll go back or not. I suggest Fleming’s or Ruth Chris because they allow you to pre-choose the exact table that you prefer. Again, food excellent, service excellent, ambience terrible.

We had a reservation time and this was pushed back by 15 minutes even though we were on time. The server was nice but she seemed very distracted and we had to wait for water refills. The food was great and the gentlemen at the carving station were extremely nice and helpful. The decorations were minimal and I think there could have been more of them. It was a beautiful setting but the price was pretty over the top for the entire experience.

We've dined at three of your locations. Sunday Park is always the best. Food is great. Waitstaff are friendly. Ambient noise level is low. The only downer is having to wait outside in inclement weather...even with reservations.

So this was our first experience with boathouse... and we did it on thanksgiving. Now we were fully aware beforehand that it was buffet style and $44 a person. But I think I expect a lot more for $44 a person. They had 2 salad choices none of which were something I couldn’t whip up from a bag at home. The rolls were stale and dry and the only bread option. There were 5-6 traditional side choices and the only one that was incredible was the sweet potatoes. There were two meat choices beef tenderloin and turkey. Neither were spectacular. Then 3 dessert choices all of which were good. Just none of it or even the full meal was worth $60 after a drink. But heck I didn’t have to cook or clean on thanksgiving so that’s worth something.
