    I had the Happy Hour sliders and was dissapointed. The chicken was battered and I would rather have three tiny ones apposed to the two large ones. Just my opinion.

    Came for brunch on New Year’s Day and the food was great!!! I will definitely come back again. Service towards the end of our brunch was slow that was the only negative thing. Had to wait 20 min for the waitress to come back.

    Firstly, let me say the food was outstanding. Service was so-so, we waited a long time to get served but this was probably due to being December 31st. A lot of menu items were not available even though this was a fixed menu with reservations. We had to change what we wanted at various points because we were not informed right away that the items were not available. Again, food was delicious, but not being able to order what we wanted (we checked the menu prior to actually reserving) and slow service was very disappointing.

    We enjoyed a beautiful window table with fabulous view of the river. The server was very upbeat and friendly. All 4 of us were very happy with our 3 course meal selections. The portion sizes were perfect and the food was absolutely delicious. We left feeling very happy with our choice of The Boathouse, New West for New Year's Eve.

    Went there for Christmas Dinner, waitress was not attentive & rude, food was cold, bland & not enjoyable. When we booked, it was listed as $55.00 per person and then was changed to $75.00. All around, not a great experience.

    The restaurant was extremely cold. They had in few locations very small portable heaters that were ineffective. Turkey was all brown meat which we specifically asked not to have, very little gravy. Stuffing amounted to 4 croutons moistened. Cesar salad lettuce was very bitter and next to no dressing.

    Went on Christmas Eve and the service was outstanding. We did not think the turkey dinner for $75 was worth it. Way overpriced for just a simple turkey dinner. We wished they had the regular menu to choose from as well. We might be back for the regular menu but never again for the $75 per plate turkey dinner.

    Our appetizers took over an hour. It was only oysters. Our meals came out at the same time. Our waiter was very unhappy and telling us that he was quitting that day. He was great and very professional but felt management was unorganized and did not treat the serving staff fair.

    This is the second time I have eaten here in the last six months. I found the staff are slow and i was ignored for a long time waiting at the front when I arrived. The food quality was poor last time and again this time. I had a lobster pasta that was not great and tasted acidy and only two pieces of small lobster but the dish was the cost of two good sized lobsters on their own with sides at the Keg. This place used to be better but I won't be back again.

    After giving 18% tip on 9-person table, we asked waiter to take one group photo and he told us he had 3 tables waiting in him and “I’ll try to get to you after that.” I seriously couldn’t believe it!! I wish I had waited to tip until after that. What a tone deaf person. As if we are going to wait for him to deal with 3 other tables so he can “try” to get to us. I organize regular dinner and New West comedy club nights for family and friends and will not be coming back to Boathouse despite the great food and ambience because of that waiter’s ignorance.

    So our server (Michael) was awesome . The rest of the Bday party experience was a flop, poor greeters and no managers presence for guidance or to answer any questions. An honest 3.0 experience at best ;( sad when you go out and spend close to $500
