The food was very tasty. We had the steamed shrimp and they were a nice size. The crispy roasted chicken was so delicious.
Food could be better. Decided to give this restuarant a try and dissappointed. Disliked the food, prices are a bit high for such bad tasting food.
Consistently good food and great service. Love the view.
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 service was outstanding. They were very busy but they were still very polite and helpful. I can’t wait to return and maybe for dinner. Great views and the food was excellent. Great job
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.
Nice lunch ooutside on the patio near water. Love the view.
The views were amazing! The food tasted great and the portions were reasonable. I also liked the prices and the service. Would definitely recommend!
Beautiful waterfront sunset views, good service, food not so good. Would only go back for drinks and the views definitely not for the food.
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!
My server Linsey was awesome. Suggested certain dishes, kept checking to make sure we had everything we needed.
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.
Happy hour food was great! There were 4 in our party. We were pleased with the taste of the food of the dinner options, but expected them to be a step above since the happy hour food was so good. Our waitress did not seem very friendly.
Service was slow and missed item that was ordered. One of the bars reported that that did not have any Red wine! Also a drink ordered on the rocks was give and soda added to the glass😬
Super staff with people like Jordyn servicing great drinks and suggestions for wine and then having Dominic suggest the seafood flatbread and a great arugula with beets salad and grilled chicken while sitting on the innee harbor in the evening with great wine,beer and your guy - this is perfect! 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.
The weather was pretty rough outside but the ambiance of the restaurant made the day seem lovely. I came for brunch and the service was great and the food was delicious!
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.
Amazing view and good food. Our server was very welcoming and friendly.
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
I read all the reviews and many complained about the service, I should have listened to them. It’s a shame because the location is great, but I’d never recommend it to anyone due to the service.
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.
It’s was great sat outdoors and enjoyed the great view of bay
I’ve been to the boathouse many times and it is always a great time. The food is exceptional. The drink choices are quite a variety. The view is beautiful. Perfect for a date, brunch, or get together.
Go for the view , a drink and surrounding area. Eat somewhere else for lunch. Food inconsistent. Service always slow unless you are at the bar.
Great food and service was awesome. Outside seating for the marina view was awesome.
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.👍
Very beautiful place. Quick and professional service. Friendly and helpful staff.
The drinks where flat, the dinners where cold, the only thing good was are waitress.
A great place to eat on the water. A wonderful place to meet with friends to talk and catch up.
Cream of crab soup was not a hit. Shrimp and grits were tasty but portion was small.
Service was horrible. One entre was delivered 10 minutes before the second. There were no utensils to eat it with. I was told I could exchange a side salad for potatoes and was charged extra which was not mentioned previously. The live music by One Third Wish was the best thing about the evening.
Even though I made the reservation a week in advance, once we arrived the staff still had to "get our table ready." Thankfully it was a short wait.
Our waitress was outstanding, and the food was absolutely delicious. We were celebrating my daughter's 18th birthday with several of her friends, and she requested the Canton Boathouse because it's excellent dining along the Baltimore waterfront. My husband, her older sister, and I sat at a separate table while our birthday girl enjoyed her celebration (and crab cakes). The Restaurant Week menu was really wonderful too! Thank you for helping make a great memory for our daughter's special birthday.
Never got to taste the food because the service was so poor. Waited 45 minutes in spite of having a reservation. Was ignored by the hostesses while others who arrived after us were seated. Will never try this place again!
