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.

I loved my food and server was very attentive. I wish I remembered her name because she really was great. The only thing that I thought could have been better is the portions. I paid about $65 for 2 people and we didn’t leave completely full. I would say for the price, portions should be bigger. But overall, it was nice, food was delicious, and the place was beautiful.

Great food, great service. Window sash was broken but that didn't affect us because it was already dark

I have been going to this spot for 30-some years. Back when it was Sunday’s and through all the changes. It’s beautiful but lately the food seems to have gotten a little bland. Or at least what we ordered was bland.
The room we were in was super dark but lovely still. Service is usually exceptional
Service this time was not great as I think our waitress was drunk. Seriously.

We frequent the Boathouse throughout all seasons. The staff members are very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. We love the ambiance and we always meet the nicest people at the bar and have great conversations. Our favorite bartender is Tiffany.

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.

Great service, excellent food, a little loud but not unbearably so. Was a little disappointed nothing special was made for our anniversary, but that’s not necessarily a standard thing.
