Roadhouse food. Seafood trio app seemed like it was was prebought and deepfried. We had short ribs and they were very salty. The scalloped potatoes were reccomended but were not good. They seemed to have fake bacon bits in them which over empowered them

The restaurant's food was very average like a Kelsey's. The view was great as was the service. Would only visit again for drinks on the patio. It's impressive that the steak sandwich uses prime rib, but it's not sliced so the fat pockets make it impossible to chew.

Beautiful location, looks like they have a great patio so probably a good place to meet for drinks. The food was pretty disappointing. We ordered the calamari to start which was actually really good. But the mains were not great. We ordered the fish sandwich and the BBQ chicken pizza. The fries that came with the fish sandwich were good but the sandwich was not enjoyable. My husband is usually a fan of fish sandwiches but he did not like this one. The BBQ chicken pizza had tomato sauce as a base, which would be ok if it was just a thin layer, but it was a lot of tomato sauce and then there was so a lot of BBQ sauce poured on top. The staff were friendly but kept their distance which we appreciated. We will likely go back and give it another try but the kitchen was pretty disappointing. Such a shame because it could be so epic!

We had an 8:00 reservation for Valentines. Arrived maybe 7 min early and were taken to our table right away. Our server (Jennifer???) was friendly, gave great advice when I asked for her opinion trying to decide between a few options. The food was great! We’ve been before on the patio in the summer, and we’ll be back! Thanks for a quiet, casual, yet well serviced Valentines dinner :)

Came here for New Year’s Eve with a group. We had a terrible experience. The drinks we ordered never came. We had to ask for things multiple times. Our pregnant guest didn’t receive her meal. Some items never came, the items that did come had things missing. Awful overall experience with food and service.

This was my second time eating at the Boathouse Eatery. The food and atmosphere was great. My only complaint is that it took a very long time for us to get served once we were seated at our table.

This is a pricey place. But sitting next to the window was too cold and also there where kids running around. Calamari was really good but the ketchup you can tell they open a can of no name and put it into Heinz bottles as the ketchup was grainy and sugary

We have been here three times this month and really have no negatives to report. The food is really good, fresh and promptly served with great service. The servers are friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The weather outside was gusty but who really cares. Going again on Wednesday... we like it

We were a party of five and had made reservations earlier. Our table was ready when we arrived. We ordered our drinks which were promptly brought to the table by one of the servers with a smile which in itself is refreshing in our local restaurants. Each of us ordered different plates and they were exceptional... ample sized, fresh vegetables and outstanding taste. We were not rushed and really enjoyed our lunch. It didn't hurt that the weather was perfect as well.

This was our first time in Midland and we really enjoyed the Boathouse food, the Jambalaya and chicken avacaco club, the ambiance and nice view of the harbour. We would definitely go again.
