Excellent service. Great appetizers and main dishes.
We did outdoor dining in a gondola and it was wonderful. Food was excellent. Server was excellent. Will definitely be back!
We loved the private heated cabin!! What a treat to be cozy and warm and eating delicious food in a safe environment! Thank you!!
Almost forgot about the pandemic! Fun, unique experience with great service and a wonderful meal
We made a reservation in one of the little huts outside and it was absolutely fabulous. Very romantic and I felt very safe. Locals get half-price which was a surprise to us and we were happy about that! service was excellent!
I would always take my friends and family that come up to visit to the boat house in the past and it was so nice to be able to go back
We reserved an outdoor Gondola for our 28th wedding anniversary and had a wonderful time! The food was exquisite, the waitress attentive and friendly. I would highly recommend dining here and we will certainly be back!
Lunch in the gondola was perfect!
I loved the boathouse, the service was great, we sat in one of the shacks, it was warm and cozy. The food was delicious. I loved the inside also, the next time I go I will book inside because it was so pretty.
Excellent atmosphere, service and food. The love hut was so much fun!
Birthday dinner in private gondola. Great food and service. Having our own private dining
It was good. Review requirements sounds hectic. Dang. Like I’m gonna get in trouble.
The ambiance encourages you to stay. The food and drinks are fantastic. We will absolutely be back.
As always, amazing food, cocktails, service, and ambiance.
We ate in one of the private shacks and it was the cutest thing ever! Super warm and cozy and the service and food were awesome. Definitely recommend!
We are in the gondola out back. Highly recommend
Lunch in the Love Shack was a memorable experience. Service and food were excellent, as always!
Wonderful ambiance, food and server!
Love the outside dining adorable
The food was delicious and we enjoyed our evening in the gondola.
Perfect afternoon girls lunch
Lunch for me and my wife, staff was great
Great service! Love the outdoor gondola setup. Perfect for date night!
Our 2nd visit to the Boathouse and it didn't disappoint. Our group of 4 enjoyed the unique experience of private dining in a red ski gondola during last Sunday's snowfall. Beautiful harbor view with snow falling and delicious food and drink---who could ask for more?
We loved our evening at the Boathouse. Due to limits in availability for outdoor seating, our reservation was at 4 pm. What initially seemed like a minus turned out to be a big plus. We sat in a fabulous heated “ice fishing hut” out on the deck and we’re able to watch the sunset over the water from the privacy of our hut through our own windows. Happy hour prices are in effect at that hour. So our drinks and apps were a bargain. Our server was friendly and efficient and brought complimentary sparkling wine in honor of my birthday. We’ll definitely go back again and reserve outdoors.
Loved dining in the private gondolas. Great food and wonderful atmosphere!
Great dinner in one of the gondolas. It was pretty quiet on a Wednesday evening which was perfect.
Birthday for 12 year old daughter. Perfect in every way, food, staff, and safe in gondola!
we had an amazing meal in one of the Gondolas. wicked fun atmosphere and incredible service even in the freezing cold! Highly recommend for something fun and different !
The overall experience was great. The heaters they have in the outside gondola could be a little more powerful. But overall it was fun.
Adorable, impeccable outdoor pods are the real draw. Excellent cocktails, pub style menu with Asian influences- several dishes quite good. Good Covid protocols. Overall, a delightful night out.
Great location, the gondola was a little chilly but it was a really cold night! Food and service was great!!
Such a wonderful experience! Our first time but will definitely not be our last!
Wonderful lunch in one of the gingerbread houses located on the deck. Exceptional service with Valerie. Tasty Brussels sprouts. Poke Bowl very good. Orgasmic fudge brownie sundae. We’ll be back for lunch very soon.
Ate in one of the 'gondolas' located on the deck. Nice experience. One bit of feedback/suggestion: Because we chose to dine outside/gondola, we were not expecting it to be warm, but the server never asked if we were warm enough, or guided us on how/if we could adjust the heater settings. We noticed other diners in gondolas/huts with no jackets (we never felt warm enough to remove hats or coats) so we assume their must be a way to raise/lower heat.
Delicious food in a wonderful atmosphere, never disappoints!
Fantastic idea for a safe dining experience! Gondolas have heaters in them so it's perfect for a chilly day. It's worth being aware of the hour and a half time limit so you can get your order in early and not feel rushed. A tasty mocktail menu is a nice touch!
Had a gondola on the deck. It was perfect, and really well done. Food was great, and service was as well. Hope they keep those private dining areas around all winter.
It was the most amazing day we have had in a long time due to covid. We felt very safe and the food and staff were awesome. Will be bacj
Great food, ambiance and views. We were there for a late lunch. The gingerbread house was the perfect solution to “dining outside” but safely in a heated private space. It was really comfortable inside with large windows and plenty of space. It was a Sunday so bonus...all day happy hour drink prices, we had margaritas which were very tasty. We Shared onion soup gratinee - excellent, Had a delicious burger cooked exactly to my liking, hubby had the fish and chips(side salad instead of fries), large portion of fish he said was perfectly battered and although fried it was light and not greasy at all. I ordered The siracha Brussels sprouts as a side they were so yummy and the portion was enough to share. Finished off the meal with the coconut cheesecake with coconut ice cream with cookie crumble. Would highly recommend it. I’m listing this at the end but the service rates at the top...Very attentive but gave us privacy and time to digest between courses. Will be back for sure
Food was phenomenal! Gondolas are a fun but safe way to dine out. Service was great too.
