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.

    The Boathouse is my tradition for Thanksgiving. I always have a great meal and leave full! I had the Turkey dinner and my friend had the sou vide chicken which she loved. We had enough to take away with us. They did a great job of renovating the restaurant after Hurrican Ian.

    Typical Boathouse good service and excellent food! The Thanksgiving roast turkey special was probably the best we've had in Naples in the 4 years we've been here, since we relocated to here in early 2018; it was moist, juicy and delicious! And ALL the accompaniments were also delicious and attractively presented! And as is typical, our Server was courteous, friendly, professional and a pleasure for her overall performance! Our 6 guests left here happy and completely satisfied with the food and the excellent service! Consequently, we've now booked our Christmas Eve dinner here at the Boathouse for our next celebratory dinner!

    We dined here for Thanksgiving. Our waitress Nycela took great care of us. She gave us time to enjoy our cocktails and then explained the menu and the Thanksgiving menu. The food was excellent. Nice portions of white meat turkey. The green bean casserole and mashed taters were great too. Our only issue was how little dressing/stuffing we received. About a melon ball scoop. BUT that was very minor compared to how great the overall meal was. Great view too. We enjoyed it and will probably do the Thanksgiving menu here again next year. Delicious.

    They seated us outdoors overlooking the water as we requested. Nice view. The service was attentive and friendly. We had the stuffed artichoke appetizer. Artichokes we’re fresh and the stuffing was flavorful. We’d get it again. Hi has the light broiled seafood platter. The white fish was supposed to be flounder but looked and tasted like tilapia. I prefer flounder. The scallops and shrimp were delicious. I’d order it again but specify that I want flounder. My husband had the two maine lobster tails with rice pilaf. He enjoyed his meal and would order it again. We’ve been to this restaurant several times before and it hasn’t disappointed us yet.

    The setting is very nice - beautiful view . I find this at most restaurants these days - too expensive for what you get!! Cost is high and the patron paying but for the same quality food Thanksgiving dinner - sirloin was way overdone and prime rib underdone and fatty My fish was good as always , service warm and attentive !! We’ll always go back….

    The experience was horrible on Mother’s Day when we were there and we thought we would try it one more time. They did not disappoint it was just as bad this time, even worse from the owner who could care less about his diners experience. Sadly we won’t be back. Do better, Boathouse. The owner needs an attitude adjustment.

    I’ve always gone for the beer battered grouper this time the batter was very thick n doughy NOT crispy n lite. The lobster rolls were excellent as always. Not that I’m a complainer n have lots lof grandchildren but we were seated in far corner with a lovely family. The kids were cute but very loud and in n out their chairs. We could not carry on a quiet conversation. There were other tables that maybe we could have gone to. Was not asking to change in middle of lunch (the server was a delight, in future maybe staff could anticipate such. I know the couple on our other side kept looking at kids n parents often.

    Server had larger tables to handle and our party of two felt neglected. Dinner starter ordered was not provided, and entrees arrived after a long wait tepid and dried out. Things improved after we involved a manager. Keep your food and service expectations low and perhaps you won’t be as disappointed.

    Sat outside on a beautiful night but table was not good and the music was extremely loud!!! Hayden was our server and was excellent. He recommended the Trigger fish and it was quite tasty. The oysters Rockefeller were not so good, small and tough!!! House salad was good. We also had bacon wrapped scallops. Large, but only fair.
