Open Tuesday - Saturday for Dinner served 5-9pm
On & Off-Site Catering
For old people. Nobody else was there, small with nobody else under 65.
Wonderful setting with great food.
Food, Service, ambience and view are all reasons to go to the Boathouse.
Went for dinner the night before thanksgiving and it was amazing. Our server, Kevin, was attentive, kind, and wonderful. Loved the whole experience!!
I was happy to get a last-minute reservation on a Saturday night when we were going to an 8:00 show at the Westport Country Playhouse and was surprised that it wasn't that busy when we arrived at 6:30. More people came before we left, but perhaps because this restaurant and the building it is in appeared to be very new, it has not caught on yet. Or maybe because it is now cold and you can't eat outside, which I'm sure is fantastic because it is located right on the Saugatuck River. Anyway, the seafood was outstanding (crab cakes were a little bland), the service was excellent and the view was lovely overlooking the river, even now when it gets dark at 5:00. And the prices were reasonable.
First experience here. Once private, now open to public for dining. Went for a birthday dinner. Beautiful interior with great view of river. Menu looked good. Service was friendly and prompt. Biggest disappointment was the food quality. All 5 had starter soup, which was excellent. However, the entrees were disappointing. Even the ‘special’. For the price was v disappointing.
Food and atmosphere were excellent. Surpassed expectations.
The fish was very good. My hamburger was unimpressive.
Excellent food but a little skimpy on the grilled octopus and shrimp
Beautiful view and a great lunch!
We went there for lunch and had a good sized table right at the window looking out at the Saugatuck River and all of the birds that were swimming and feeding there. There were only a few people inside so it was very quiet. We got the three course meal from the special restaurant week menu. The soup and the salad were excellent as was the salmon and the pasta main courses. We shared the two desserts, both the chocolate tart and the strudel and they were each top notch. The waiter was good although a bit over busy because of the number of people sitting outdoors on a lovely day. We look forward to going back again soon.
We enjoy the Boat House for afternoon dining. Food for lunch is very good. The opposite is for dinner. Limited menu, very poor quality steak and service mediocre. It is still a great place for an afternoon.
Food was great, but thought the decor could be much better given the waterfront setting.
Thought we might be able to sit outside.
This is a lovely spot with a great view of the Saugatuck River. The food is solid, the wine list works and the cocktails are good. We like this spot.
Porch has great vista but captures too much noise.
Great service and food!
Lunch menu is not particularly appealing and the salad was wilted. The view when sitting outside was the best thing about the restaurant. Overall a disappointing experience.
Lobster rolls delicious and great value. View of Saugatuck river with paddleboarders was spectacular
Service was awful, don’t have teenagers as your main wait staff on a Sat night!
loved outdoor setting, lovely view.
very nice service...all very civilized!
Service was very good. The food was outstanding. We shared oysters, salad, special of the day was scallops. Desert was good too. CremeBrule and chocolate sundae.
Very attractive, good service, but food was at best fair. Many places in Westport have better food, which is why I would choose them.
excellent food served in a lovely setting overlooking the river.
Charming little venue. Enjoyable waterfront viewing.
For me, the ambiance was a highlight! You can sit on the deck right by the water.....we did! The food was very good and we had a great waiter!
Too bad they only serve dinner on Saturday night! Think it would be a really good place for
their daily lunch! Will go back!
Had never heard of this place, but found on Open Table website! THANK YOU!
We really enjoyed our dinner at the Boathouse. The meal was superb and our waiter Paul was terrific.
Looking forward to a special occasion to return.
A nice overall dining experience. Reasonably priced. Very good house margarita, et al
Overall an excellent lunch. On the Saugatuck River at the rowing club. Efficient servers, well prepared food. Would return.
Excellent restaurant! I would go again!
The lobster bisque was very good and had actual chunks of lobster meat. The crab cakes were light and delicious.
We really like this restaurant particularly in nice weather when you can sit outside over looking the river. It has a small menu but I have never had anything less than an outstanding meal. Noise level is very low which is hard to find and greatly appreciated.
Wonderful outdoor deck seating we chose amid boats and scullers on the Saugatuck River made for a scenic and peaceful dining experience
The view trumps all, nestled on the beautiful Saugatuck River! The cocktails were fine as was the hamburger. My lobster roll was magnificent, brimming with lobster, warm and succulent. Service was a tad slow and the outdoor porch quickly filled up. I would recommend this for a meal that is pleasant and nice.
WE enjoyed our lunch looking out at the beautiful view. The service was great and food delicious.
Enjoyed celebrating my 43rd weeding anniversary there!
We got married at the Boat House four years ago. This was to celebrate 25 years together and four years married. It is a very romantic venue with very good food.
Just really bad service all the way around / had high hopes but the service experience was terrible.
We had an excellent experience. Enjoyed the food, scenery and service.
The view of Saugatuck River was lovely. The the service was great and the food was delicious.
Great atmosphere and food. Service from Antonio was also top notch
