Seafood
The Boathouse restaurant and event spaces wed the town’s impeccable waterfront views with authentic, locally-sourced cuisine. From the classically Southern shrimp and grits featuring sausage from Surry, VA to pizza made with authentic Italian recipe dough, the menu is distinctive and, most importantly, delicious.

We were so excited to enjoy dinner at Sunday Park. We definitely feel this location is the best. Keep up the good work! We will be back and bringing others.

I have always enjoyed going to the Boathouse for a pleasureable dining experience. However, this time the atmosphere was great, but the food has fell from a 10 to really a two. The crabcakes are not fluffy and moist like they use to be or is the calamari as crisp and fresh. Is there new management or kitchen staff for the apparent change in the food taste and texture?

My wife and I went there to take advantage of their Spring Special 50% off food offer and everything was Great! I didn't feel guilty ordering their Broiled seafood dinner, usually it hurts to pay that much for a crab cake, 2 shrimp, and 2 scallops so having an appetizer also at 1/2 price helped fill me up :-) We'll be back.

Too advantage of the restaurant was reopening on Mondays and used the 50% off email sent to frequent guests. My husband ordered his usual filet and my usual salmon. Both were cooked to perfection! Our salads were also great (house and spinach). Service was excellent. Although it was an unusually warm day, we still opted to eat indoors, it can’t wait to return to eat outside by the water!

We brought friends for a party of 6 and asked them to evaluate for this. One man said his crabcakes had too much breading in them, not enough crab to taste it. Lady's lobster roll was almost tasteless she said. Wedge salad was a very, very small "wedge" cut in pieces, not as had been experienced before for other wedge salads.
On the plus side, 2 broiled seafood platters were very good. Salmon and risotto very good. Presentations nice.
Overall though, we would have been very disappointed if we had paid full price as seem to be too high, at least for the plates we ordered.

We absolutely love this restaurant but they need to make a few changes. My wife and daughter are gluten and dairy free. The server said ok she will make sure it’s marked. She repeats our order back. My wife ordered the grilled chicken with no mashed potatoes because it had dairy in them. My daughter orders a plain hamburger with no bun. Meals come out and my wife has mashed potatoes which the chicken and asparagus are laying on top of. My daughters hamburger comes out with cheese and bacon on it. The server was very upset because she repeated everything she wrote down but the kitchen didn’t see it. There should be a red flag when someone with Allergies orders a meal.

Mashed potatoes were barely warm and not very good. The serving of rock fish was good, but very small.

Hubby and I enjoyed a lovely evening last Sat! Great food, beautiful waterfront ambiance with sunset on lake, attentive service, great value, and manager even stopped by our table to ensure everything was great! One of our favorite restaurants and the best of The Boathouses in Richmond!

We were unfortunately in town for our nephew's funeral, but we enjoyed a quiet dinner at The Boathouse. Debbie provided excellent service. We both had salmon and ordered it cooked rare. It was exactly as we requested and very delicious - moist and flavorful. For dessert we enjoyed the Creme Brulee and the Apple Cobbler.

My husband and I went to celebrate Valentines Day. The food was delicious as always. We both had salmon and it was cooked perfectly. The crab dip appetizer was amazing as well. I don't believe there is another restaurant in the Richmond area that can beat the Boathouse for the overall experience of food and atmosphere.

Live the boat house and Sunday Park. Wait staff are terrific and so is the food. You can’t beat the atmosphere. Great for romantic dinners or celebrations, or just a night out with friends or family.

Megan was a phenomenal server! She took great care of us! Our drinks were never empty, and we waited for nothing. We love the Boathouse, and Megan only made us want to come back more often if she can take care of us. The food was fantastic!!! Can’t wait to return in the spring when we can enjoy drinks on the water to watch the sunset!
