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.

Our second dinner at the Boathouse this week and again, it did not disappoint.
Great food, perfectly relaxed atmosphere and scenic view and really prefect service.
This is a real gem in Naples, glad we found it.

The bartender was great at the bar,then we sat in the dining room and had dinner. the food was great, but the waitress must have had an bad day,too bad because it was my wifes birthday and it could have been better service. I put on the reservation that it was a birthday occasion, but the waitress had no clue ,and when our friend mentioned it to her she said nobody told her and acted bothered that it was brought up

A little chilly as the a/c was blowing directly on us. The chef was unwilling to substitute items on the menu!!!
The food is very good and so is the service. We have been there several times and is one of our favorites

I went there based on their online menu, but the item I wanted was not available. My substitute was not very good and my partner's seafood and pasta meal was overcooked. I will not be going back.

We had a wonderful dining experience at the Boathouse. Our server, Brianna, was excellent. She anticipated our needs and was on top of keeping our glasses filled and giving us updates about our orders. We’ll be back to the Boathouse in the not-too-distance future for another wonderful dining experience.

Great dinner! I had the local-caught Triple-Tail, flame Grilled with the caper sauce and my wife had the seared scallops and both were fantastic. We're repeat customers and try to make dinner at the Boathouse happen every time we're in Naples. The covered outdoor seating is a great way to enjoy their wonderful cooking. A+

Food was good but not outstanding as you would expect for $$ meals. Some food was great while others were too salty and just mediocre. Server seemed to be stretched a little thin working tables at both ends of the restaurant. Overall a good dinner but not great. Views along the widows are nice and make up for a lot. I chalk it up to being the off-season and they are just not staffed fully.

Lovely waterfront setting. The food is good and you would have trouble finding a more relaxing setting. Order seafood as it is fresh and eel prepared. And the Bloody Mary was very good.

Lovely meal at The Boathouse. Good service, wide choice on the menu, good value. We even had dessert. Didn’t care for the calamari appetizer - appeared to be manufactured rather than made fresh in house. Our reservation for 615 brought us to the restaurant on a Friday while happy hour was still ongoing. Very noisy. However in 15 mins or so the crowd left and the noise level definitely improved. We will return.

We have been the the Boathouse many times and found it to be a good restaurant. This past time it took nearly 1.5 hours to receive our main course --- overall a 1 hour 50 minute experience for a quick bite to eat.

Terrific as usual. We had the triple tail and trigger fish as entrees. Perfectly prepared and presented. Our waitress, Sarah was excellent. Only negative was the
“baked”potato. Disappointed that it was microwaved. The Boat House is better than that!

Overal cleanliness was below what I expect. There was a broom, mop and bucket, that stayed all night in walkway to table , something gooey on table that wouldn’t go away even after cleaned with a dirty rag. Our bread was not cooked through still had raw dough inside, my lobster was over cooked and 30.00 for half of a very small tail , 2 pieces of scallop and 2 medium shrimp ( also over cooked )
Sorry but overall was not very impressive.

We love Boathouse. Excellent menu. Seafood preparation is great!!
Somewhat disappointed with hostess: requested window table in reservation; we arrived a few minutes early was told no windows were available; seated at table near window; within minutes others seated at window. Not happy.
Dinner, service was great.

First time dining at the Boathouse and won’t be the last! My husband and I had a table at the window overlooking Naples Bay, a spectacular view. The food lived up to the view. My husband enjoyed the bouillabaisse, with a large lobster tail as well as beautiful shrimp and scallops. It was prepared in a saffron stock, now to my liking but it definitely was to his! I tried one of the specials, the parrot fish. It was prepared exactly as I requested and was delicious. Our dinners came with 2 sides so the portions were plentiful. Service was excellent. Kerry was very personable, knowledgeable, and checked on us just the right amount of times. When we made the reservations, we mentioned we were celebrating our anniversary. Although we were too full for dessert, we very much enjoyed the moist white anniversary cake Kerry brought out to us! It was a special dinner!

Food was sub par. My daughter’s Mac n cheese was inedible. No one would even begin to discuss my daughter’s tree nut allergy with us and what may be safe for her to eat. And the wait staff was publicly fighting with the manager to the point it was uncomfortable. A beautiful setting, and that’s it.

We had a very nice anniversary dinner with a nice table overlooking the bay & right on the water. Everything was great & we did not expect any special arrangements until our waitress Linda said she could not find a piece of cake for us & just gave us the two candles. There was no need to do that because we had no such expectations. But everything was great either way. We were able to converse in peace & it turned out real enjoyable! Thank you for a beautiful dinner Boathouse & staff!😘

Great views of the bay from the outdoor deck or table side windows. Food is average with average sized portions. Seemed understaffed for a Saturday night. Service could be more attentive.
