The waterfront ambiance of the Boathouse on Naples Bay is as enticing as the food and at the heart of Naples’ history. Spectacular views, great food, friendly, seasoned staff and a very relaxed attitude.

It is restaurant week and thought we would sample the 3 course menu for $39. I ordered a mango mojito and hubby had a margarita. The mint in my drink had passed it’s prime but tasted fine. Hubby’s second drink had a bug in it. Sent it back only to find another bug. Third time it was fine. I ordered an appetizer of shrimp, clams and mussels in a garlic butter sauce. It was delicious. For my entree I had lobster stuffed with crab and crab legs. Crab legs were very good. Lobster was old and chewy. Crab stuffing had 2 shells and was not very good. Hubs had a Caesar salad and steak and said it was good. Creme Brûlée for dessert was good but not outstanding. Food service was very slow. We waited quite a while for our entrees and noticed others waiting as well. It was a Wed. Night so not that busy. We dine at the Boathouse occasionally. We normally have good service and good food.

We've lived in Naples for 8 years and this was our first visit to the Boathouse. Dined during Sizzle Week. View of bay was perfect, table nicely set, food was plentiful and good (portion sizes were just right). Restaurant offers two drinks for one during Happy Hour. Cosmopolitans were delicious. Prices seemed reasonable for Naples. We'll go back for brunch when guests are in town. Our server, Sagine, was one of the best we've had in Naples. Polite and professional. She did not fill the water glass after every sip, which we find annoying.

We went for restaurant week. We waited at the hostess station while members of the staff looked at us. It took a while for anyone to come to the table to take our drink order. The restaurant was not busy, but they were out of two items that were on special and they were out of the wine I wanted.

The waitress tried, but overall, I will not be going back there.

I noticed my drink glass was cracked,I told my waitres (a black girl with blond hair) she took my drink and poured the remainder into another galss and gave it back to me. I was with other friends so I did not complain, didn't want the manager to come overt to explan about my drink and upset our dinner and frends .My drink could have glass in it,the waitress should have given me a new drink,not pour the remainder of my drink into another glass.She showed no concern.Very poor esrvice.

Our meal was very good, but only 1 of us chose from the restaurant week menu. Inside was very crowded and very loud...luckily we were outside. The view looking at the water and boats was great...the opposite direction..not so great..an older apartment building! Perhaps some plantings are due to block it out! Service was normal, not exceptional. Example...the evening was very hot and our water glasses were never refreshed until we asked at the end of the meal.

We had to wait almost 10 mins before we were greeted at our table. If the restaurant was busy at the time, maybe I could have understood but it was less than 50% full at the time. I ordered a salad that claimed to have spring mix and instead there were huge leaves of iceberg lettuce and a very few pieces of spring mix. I would not have ordered the salad if I knew this. I was also a little disappointed because when making the reservation on OpenTable I was asked if we were celebrating anything and I answered- yes, we are celebrating our 5th anniversary. I'm not sure why this was asked because it was not acknowledged at all. As parents to 4 children, my husband and I have very few opportunities to get out and enjoy time to ourselves. We were really looking forward to our anniversary dinner and it was unfortunately a disappointing experience.

Unfortunately what could have been a great evening turned into a very mediocre experience due to the service/ wait staff we received. Food was very good sat outside on a windy night. At one point we went into pay bill because we were worried about it blowing away and our server was sitting down doing a crossword puzzle.

We were looking for a nice place for lunch before we drove to Miami to fly home and this was perfect. It’s right on the water, we booked an outside table but it was really warm so they were only too happy to sit us inside by the window.

The food was lovely and fresh and our waiter was friendly.
It arrived quickly, but not too fast. We both had ice cream for dessert, which was really tasty.

Would definitely recommend

Food was hot and relatively flavorful. View of the water (outside seating) was nice. The service was absolutely atrocious. We were there for over 1.5 hours (and not because we wanted to). Many similar complaints by nearby tables as well. Bar was completely covered with dirty and used glasses, plates, and silverware..with people eating nearby. We do not live in this area, but when we visit again, we will never return to this place.

We got a great table outside on the deck as requested. and it was great sitting on the water and enjoying the view. The waiter was very pleasant and the food was delicious. We recommended it to some of the people we were with in Naples over the weekend, and a few locals highly recommended it as well. We will definitely eat here again when we travel to or through Naples.
