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.

Overall this is a very nice restaurant. The food is very good but you get very little compared to what you pay for. A good place for special occasions and know that you will be paying a lot for very little.

Beautiful setting and great place for a friendly get together or to celebrate an event. The food was very good - rockfish for me, crab cakes for her. Live music on Saturday evening when we visited and happy hour is a great bargain (ends at 7). Extensive wine menu and also good number of beer choices.

Good food, good service, terrible parking; I arrived on time for my 6pm reservation but it took me 15 minutes to find a parking spot and then hobble in a long way to be seated. I was not forewarned about inadequate handicapped parking even though I let the restaurant know in advance that I would have trouble with stairs. Walking back and forth caused me tremendous pain. That said, my guests and I had an excellent meal in one of the best settings in the Richmond area, we enjoyed a beautiful sunset over the water. Service was also excellent.

I brought 2 guys from out of town. They loved the views. They also loved the menu. They couldn’t make up their minds. They did pick the special and also the stuffed shrimp.

It was a great evening.

Thank you.

My real Bestie Linda and I had dinner at the Boathouse at Sunday Park for a long overdue get together! We had a perfect seat by the water and the sunset was gorgeous. Linda had steak with asparagus and roasted potatoes, I had my favorite dish Shrimp & Grits. Both quite delicious! We ended our night out with bread pudding with vanilla ice cream. Yum! We are definitely looking forward to going back for another girl’s nite out! Our server, his name escapes me, just needs a bit off polishing to garner any accolades from us.
