Asked to be seated on outdoor patio but was told people with reservations get those….. I explained we had reservations and was still told they “might be booked”. Two out of available tables when we got there were still empty when we left. We were seated by the door to the kitchen at a table that was so small I couldn’t even fit my legs under comfortably. When I asked if we could switch away from kitchen was told once again tables were reserved. I made a reservation for this place a couple days in advance and was never asked “which table” I wanted. Did I mention I was also staying at The Boathouse Inn, their hotel and not once was any such “rules or preferences mentioned”. Food was fair at best. Scallops were still sandy, the lobster in the lobster rice was so Over-cooked it was reduced to chalky mush. The prices there are par for the course for Maine but not a fair price for the meal that was served by any means. Will NEVER go there again. Great disappointment!

Oysters were really tasty with a good glass of Proseco! We took the Togarashi spiced salmon that was very original and the fish and chips superb! Our waitress was very friendly We highly recommend this very good restaurant.

(We asked to move but were told we could not.) They may want to rethink the location of some of the smaller tables within the interior of the restaurant but overall still a good experience.

The atmosphere, food and service were all incredible. We will be back!

The service is great and the servers are knowledgeable and friendly. The food is fantastic and I don't think there's a single thing on the menu I wouldn't order! Our favorites are the seared shrimp and scallops with lobster fried rice, crab cakes, tuna tartare tacos, tuna poke bowl and the short rib mac and cheese. All amazing! The chocolate lava cake was awesome, too! This time we brought our teenagers and ate in a gondola. So much fun! We'll be back soon.

Even upon arrival, nothing was said until the end of the meal, where we had to make up the difference by bringing something home. Although our waiter offered to get the manager; it was not worth the hassle.

We had a party of 6 it was cozy but we had plenty of room! Drinks were fun and different. Food was amazing. My husband is almost deaf and liked he could be out with a group of folks and hear everything where it was no background sound... Wait staff was pleasant and friendly but also kept their distance which was what we wanted... they took our order and kept our drinks full but did come around too much... Would be a fun place to take kids and not have to worry about them moving around or bothering others...was great for a adult night out too!

The staff/manager were lovely. We were all so taken aback but how great our experience was - it was epic! Thank you again to The Boathouse. You outdid yourself and I am here for it!

It was warm, inviting and well decorated. The drink service was slow for a quiet Sunday afternoon otherwise the food service was excellent. We enjoyed our afternoon and highly recommend the experience.

Upon arrival at 11:57 for a 12p reservation, we were rudely told by the manager that “uh ewe are not even open yet”. Once the clock chimes noon, she returned to the desk to check us in. At that point she informed me there was a $150 good/beverage minimum. I was perplexed by this comment and questioned it. I confirmed that it was not noted anywhere on open table or my conformation of the reservation. I even attempted to book another reservation and, again, nothing documented that there is a $150 minimum. The manager was insistent it was there but failed to be able to produce the documentation.. she nervously scrambled on her iPad trying to find it . She even rudely told me “I am the manger and I made sure it was there”. Again, I told her it wasn’t there, showed her my reservation confirmation and she refused to admit it wasn’t. I asked her to show me where it indicated this information. She was unable to show me. Needless to say I was less than impressed with her professionalism or ability to admit it was an oversight. It was actually quite embarrassing for the boathouse to have her representing them with such poor customer service skills (and most disturbing- mask on but under her nose) Fortunately our waitress was lovely and ensured our visit, though more expensive than it should have been, was a positive experience. The manager needs to look into her “policies” and how they are communicated with her guests. Because of her , we likely won’t dine here again, but hope our waitress Marjorie finds another more credible establishment and we meet again! So beware of this restaurant’s undocumented polices (only minimum noted is for Valentines Day-$250 but nothing about $150)

Once in the gondola and once at the bar. The staff was friendly and very helpful. We also stayed at the hotel as well which was fantastic. Overall an awesome weekend anniversary getaway coming all the way from GA.

Our server and the food was all amazing especially the drinks! We will definitely be back. I really appreciate that they just have a food and beverage minimum for the gondolas and don’t charge an extra fee like many other places do.

They were awesome and spacious. It was on and off raining, but our guy Brad was real nice and attentive. Maybe, possibly, if anything just like one more floor heaters in the gondola. Other than that though, great food and atmosphere. Each gondola has a BT speaker, so you could put whatever you want on.
