The Boathouse has a great location right along the water. It's fun to people watch as well as watch the boats go by. The food and drinks are very reasonably priced with a great beer list. Overall, a fun spot to enjoy a beautiful day.

Crab dip was great!! Pit beef sandwich was great. A steak isn’t the best option.

This was my first time here, for a birthday brunch. This service was excellent, professional, and efficient. Everything was at a reasonable price and the food was really good for the most part. I’d definitely come back soon. I’m sure it’s perfect during the spring/summer.

We went for restaurant week. Their restaurant week menu had dishes that weren't their regular fare, which is probably why it took so long for each course to come out. The rockfish was moist and tender. The duck was a little dry - likely sat in the warmer too long. I think restaurants do better for restaurant week when they highlight their regular menu and draw in new patrons, I like using restaurant week to try something new and discover hidden gems, but this wasn't it. Not sure we will be back, though their seafood mac and cheese sounds intriguing.

Restaurant is nice and love the location, my boyfriend and just wanted to have a nice lunch date and this restaurant was a nice choice. The food taste ok, but nothing really out of the ordinary, our server was attentive and pleasant. However, the host didn’t really pay attention to our reservation request to ha a table with a view and away from high restaurant traffic, when we arrived the restaurant was not busy at all, since it was Monday and before noon. We got seats in a booth while many tables by the water views stayed empty, and pretty much all other guests were also seated in n the other booths around us, which turned into a heavy traffic area, noise level was loud as a large group came to seat at the bar. Not a totally bad experience, but not what we ask for.

The food was delicious and service started out great but toward the end of the meal not so much. One person at the table had to ask for water 3 times, our deserts were given to the wrong table so we had to wait quite a while to get new ones. Once they came the creme brûlée was not fully set although the flavor was good.

The BoatHouse Canton exceeded my expectations! I went for dinner with my parents and my fiancé, and we have some dietary restrictions in the group. The menu had a great variety, with something to please everyone, and all of us enjoyed our meals. The location on the water is unbeatable!

We went on a Wednesday night for Restaurant Week. It was not too crowded as the weather was quite crappy. Each of ordered from the restaurant week menu eager to try of sampling of what the Boat House had to offer. The food did no disappoint! Our cocktails were just as delicious. The Grapefruit Crush was obviously made from fresh grapefruit juice.

Service on the other hand was lacking. There was zero element of friendliness to our server. Refills on drinks needed to be requested. Food arrives by runner with a full tray and no tray stand. He now stands around looking for another employee to help him as he cannot juggle the distribution of the food and the tray at the same time. Time for dessert and the same runner again comes with the full tray and no tray stand. He also did not come with silverware. We sat five minutes for spoons as all of our flatware from our previous course was collected.

Now comes time for the check. We were told it could not be split more than four ways. Now all seven of us are in the service industry. We know how to split a check and perhaps we are hypersensitive but know what great service is.

Even though we were offered the heated patio seating no one ever made our waiter aware we were out there until 10 minutes after being seated. However once we placed our orders our service was excellent.

We absolutely enjoyed Sunday Brunch in the loft overlooking the Baltimore Harbor. The food and service were excellent. Thank you Niko and Erica.
