We wanted to take our daughter and son-in-law somewhere nice for a Christmas present. The Boat House was very nice. I talked my daughter into trying oysters for the first time. The Rockefellers were great. The food was very tasty and the service spot on. Wednesday is Wine Wednesday so we had a nice bottle of wine also. I would definitely go there again. My daughter hinted a couple of times she wanted her husband to take her back there.

Had omelette and waffle buffets for brunch. The omelettes are large and the food was tasty. Only complaint is that the carafes of mimosa should be made with cold liquids and no ice (which diluted the drink). Service was fantastic- server was great and the floor was clean.

This place is becoming a favorite for us for Sunday Brunch.. The atmosphere is great, service excellent, the staff is friendly and efficient and the food is consistently good. You can order from the menu or take advantage of the specials where they make an omelet to your order, or great waffles. There is a buffet table that goes with the special.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Expensive. Why for Thanksgiving dinner. Never eaten Thanksgiving out before. It was nice, Boathouse usually is but, I expected more options or, maybe something different. For $45.00 plus drinks, I like to be blown away. Just seemed a little lazy. The food was good, the service was OK. It just didn't seem special

First time at the Boathouse as we just moved from the San Francisco bay area. The service was great (though a little rushed) and the meal including the Maryland Crab Cakes and warm bread pudding for dessert were fantastic. We definitely will be back!

I can't believe we waited so long to visit this place - especially since we live in the neighborhood but there was no better time than our anniversary celebration to enjoy our first dining experience here. It definitely will not be our last. Absolutely loved the low lighting, the quiet surroundings, the view of the reservoir, the food, drinks and dessert were all amazing.

We enjoyed the fried shrimp appetizer as well as the oyster one that included 2 of each of the 3 kinds on the menu. This was a great way to sample all of the great options. Our entrees were also great. Service was very good. We sat on the second floor near an event that was being held. This made us realize what a great location this would be for private events.

We are big fans of The Boathouse at Rockett's Landing and Short Pump, but this was a first visit to the Sunday Park restaurant. We made reservations for brunch for a family member's birthday. I've heard so many good things about this restaurant, but it was clear that our orders were not made to order -which is fine for a busy restaurant, but it was not especially busy that day. When our food came out, it had clearly been heated from refrigeration but only to lukewarm on the outside, and cold inside. Some meals you can get away with it, but when you have poached eggs on top of your cold food, you can't reheat the meal without destroying the egg consistency. Our waiter never came back to ask if we needed anything after we were served so we wound up eating our meals as they were. I know this restaurant is better than this. Maybe it was an off day - brunch was winding down . . . I dunno. Disappointed.

If you can sit outside, The Boathouse is amazing. Unfortunately, we sat inside and it was less than desirable. The noise level in the dining room was so loud, we couldn’t even carry on a conversation (though we could hear everyone else’s). Lobster was delicious, shrimp tacos were not that good.

Waiter missed parts of the order. The broiled shrimp seemed recently thawed and was under cooked. Bowl of clam chowder was only half way filled. Entire meal was too pricey. We were there for a birthday and although entire bill was over $500, the hostess only placed a candle on an EMPTY plate -- couldn't get any cheaper than that. Do not plan to return.

Amazing time, again, for a special occasion. Been several times to this place and always always always impressed by the menu, staff and food. This was our wedding anniversary dinner and I have never had a better meal at a restaurant.. hands down. The broiled seafood entree was fantastic and the risotto with the lobster tail my wife had, was to die for. Fantastic experience once again, and we will definitely be back again. Cheers to the chefs as well as dining staff.
