    The service was terrible and our food was cold and not that great. They brought our soup out after our entrees and it was cold. The waitress was no where to be found. When she finally came to check on us, she offered to get fresh soup but wasn’t really apologetic about the soup coming out after our meal or the temperature. When the soup came the second time it was lukewarm at best. We’ve been to The Boathouse before and the food was decent. It wasn’t crowded when we were there so I’m not sure what the problem was. Not sure what happened this time, but we won’t be back anytime soon.

    Been many times but left this time without being served... Made reservation, called to confirm dog-friendly patio was open, arrived on time, had to wait 5 mins for a table in outdoor section that had only 1 of 10 tables occupied. Staff seemed to be non existent or totally focused on a private party event they were setting up for. Waited nearly 10 minutes without a soul coming by (not even to the other occupied table), finally went in to ask for service, waited another 5 minutes and left. Waitress was finally bringing waters as we departed, but it was too late - these types of situations never go well once they start out this way, so better for all that we left... Not sure what was up this time, but attention was sure lacking.

    After reviewing the most recent reviews, my fiancé and i decided to give this place a try. First impression, overall decor and ambiance looked great. Second impression, service was terrible. 8:30pm reservation and there was no hostess waiting to greet us, after waiting close to 15 minutes, we actually had to be seated by the bartender with an almost completely empty restaurant. Table was dirty and had to wait longer for it to be cleaned. Waitress came, told us the kitchen was going to be closing soon so we quickly put our order in. We waited over 15 minutes to be served our drinks. After speaking to the manager Lindsay about our experience so far, she seemed super apologetic and afterwards the service improved. We would give this place another try only because the entrees we ordered came out in a timely manner and tasted great.

    The view was great. The brunch food however left something to be desired. The Bloody Mary bar was nice, but servings were small and inconsistent. This is a great venue for lunch or dinner, but for brunch, look elsewhere.

    I made a reservation for a party of eight. One of the entrees did not get ordered so one of our guests had to wait while the rest of the group ate their dinner. A person in our party ordered soup as an appetizer and it was not served until after the entrees. The restaurant added 20% gratuity to the bill due to the size of our party. The only time I have had decent service at this restaurant is when I sat at the bar.

    I went for a jog on the promenade and noticed this place - lively and fun in the beautiful sunset. We came on a sleepy, rainy Sunday night- the vibe was obviously quite different, but we loved every bit of our experience!

    Had a great experience and good food, however the server suggested an alternative to the meal our table selected, but didnt mention it would be an additional fee. She brought the check and it was then that we noticed we were charged more. This should always be expressed up front to give guests the option and knowledge of additional charges.

Coming back for brunch to dive into the Bloody Mary Bar to make your own for Brunch!!!

    Had a good time here, met friends we have not seen for few years. Our party was 8 people and we were comfortable. Tiny parking lot, so it's best to carpool if you can for a large group. Just a handful of grits on the Shrimp & Grits dish, we asked why? Grits are inexpensive, we thought that was odd. The honey grilled wings were very tasty. Our favorite dishes were the sweet potatoe fries, Nachos and the Fried brussel sprouts. You must try them.

    The Boathouse was recommended by our hotel staff as we were in town for a convention. Excellent recommendation! We sat on the patio near the water. It was very peaceful even with the runners/bicyclists going by. The food was even better than expected and amazing. After dinner we walked from there along the water and it was well lit and very enjoyable. I would highly recommend this place.

Beautiful decor with a modern design and a great view of the water makes it a great place to hang out with friends or spice up with a date. Highly recommend!

    We had reservations but were seated more than 15 minutes after we arrived at our appointed time for a Sunday brunch. The hostesses were young, inappropriately dressed (seriously, an Adidas track suit?), and obnoxious. When we were still standing in the lobby 10 minutes after we arrived and had been told that they were putting together our table, I went back to the hostess who looked right at me and asked me my name and whether we had a reservation. Once we were finally seated, it took more than 45 minutes for our food to arrive. Our server's response was that they had several large groups and that the kitchen was backed up. He then pointed to another table and stated that they were waiting for their food as well...as if this was supposed to be some sort of condolence to us? Clearly, they are not well trained in customer service. Considering that the restaurant was not at full capacity, I can't imagine how long it would take on a busy Friday or Saturday night. There should have been a manager walking around, apologizing to their patrons for the long delays.

    We reserved on Open Table à table for 2 and arrived 20 minutes early for our lunch reservation but were told by a young hostess that we would have to wait until our reservation time to be seated despite the fact that the restaurant was half empty . We were not even invited to sit at the bar to wait since my mother is 92 years old . We waited next to the hostess stand but standing . Fortunately a woman possibly the manager came to the stand and asked us what we were waiting for and we explained we were a few minutes early so she seated us right away . After that the food and the server were both excellent . Just too bad that they allow a young girl manage the hostess stand that has little tact and doesn’t know how to propose options like simply saying you are a bit early and you could sit at the bar and I will seat you as soon as possible . That’s all I ask for

    Our hostess did not sit us (group of 3) at a waterfront table because we were not a large party (the tables were all empty btw) and would not let us move when we asked her. However, our waiter told us we could move to one of his tables, so we did. Incidentally, those tables didn't start filling up until we were about to leave and were filled with just couples. As for the food, it was ok - nothing to write home about. I was very disappointed in the cream of crab soup --- shells, a lot of shells!

    Good ! My dad thought it was much too loud at 88 it is hard to hear so hearing aids emphasis background noise and is extremely annoying . The hostess/ waitress was great. Put us in a room with a lower ceiling and less noise. Great server too! Dinmeutress from Greece.

    I made a reservation on Open Table and wanted to sit outside by the water for my girlfriend's birthday. I was very specific and wanted to be under the lights or under an umbrella on the side of the restaurant that was the prettiest and most beautiful for evening dining. When we arrived, they were going to put us under the awning where it is dark and not pretty. I asked if we could move under the lights outside and I was told "no" that was a different restaurant with a different menu... WFT? They photograph those exact tables in every picture and that's where I wanted to sit but now I was being told that is actually a different restaurant called The Dock Bar and has a different menu??? The place was empty and the seats I wanted were like 20 steps away but they could not accommodate my request? What kind of place is this? I spent over $150 and it was an okay evening but the service was below par and the food was average for the price. Long story short, I went there because it was beautiful in the pictures and made every effort to be clear what I was looking for and the staff could care less and ended up making me look kinda ridiculous in front of my date because I had to ask and re-ask about moving tables... Very dissappointed

    Food and service very good. We could hardly hear ourselves speak. Loud, obnoxious group behind us yelling (even though they were sitting very close to each other)and using foul language. It was the 23rd anniversary of our first date and we eat there the last Sunday of August every year since it was the Bay Cafe. Disappointing.

    Food was great I had steak and it was excellentl. View was spectacular. Would probably have gotten Five stars but the live music was sooooo loud that we had to move inside so we didn’t get to enjoy the table we waited for. I enjoy most music but this wasn’t very good so I think they just played loud so you couldn’t hear how aweful they were. But I would certainly return if I’m ever in the area again I might even endur the same band for the food and the view. Hats of to the staff though they did find us another table very quick and did apologize for the inconvenience.👍
