Tuna was very good, could have seared a little longer, however it tasted great. Lobster bisque was very good. Their famous lobster clam bake was a miss. The lobster was over cooked, hard to get out of the shell. Also you only get half of the lobster. Wait staff was excellent and vibe was ambient. I’d go again but try something different to eat.

We were excited for some great seafood. Being from Denver, We though it would be amazing. Service was wonderful. But the menus was not great, and the food we had was mostly fried and not well done. Felt more like Red Lobster.

I will say, my son ordered a full lobster (but it was not on the menu and you had to ask for it), and he loved it, and we though it was fairly inexpensive. We would have like more fish options. Way more steak options than should be at a fish restaurant.

Michael was a great server though. Maybe the best part of our experience.

Definitely make a reservation. Be prepared to be served your entree in a paper-lined pie tin. Beer sold only in cans, not draft.

We’ve been to the Boathouse a few times and it has never disappointed. The service is always friendly and pleasant and the food has always been very good.
We decided to sit Dockside this time versus inside, and it was a nice change of scenery, being right down on the water.

The Boathouse food and staff amazingly good. Best lobster bisque thanks to Chef Lambert! They did not over cook the lobster. Juicy, soft, delectable. Thanks to Stephen our server too for a great experience.

I would not recommend the crab stuffed lobster. It wasn’t bad but was uninspired. Mine seemed a little dry like it had sat for a bit. The atmosphere is great though.

Great seafood, great service, beautiful view. Had the shrimp and grits very yummy. I prefer soft grits this was a cake but the jalapeño bits in it coupled with smoky bbq on the shrimp made it top notch.

Nice place to eat seafood!! Tables filled up quickly, so it’s best to make reservations... My husband got the 12 oz. filet mignion with lobster tail - he loved it. The oyster rocker fellow was great, but a little too much spinach & I love spinach.

No Clam Chowder !!!
Warm buns were outstanding as were the seasoned French fries.
Fried cod was very greasy and more batter than fish.

We were seated outside and it was really quiet and cool which was nice. Our food was great (burger, fish tacos, oysters and kids meal), and the drinks were awesome. Most importantly the service was great. Our waiter, Carl was incredibly attentive and another server, German happily engaged with our baby and toddler. It made it such a nice dinner for us!

The ambiance is why we chose to eat at The Boathouse and it was a fun setting. However, the food was not a wow. There was nothing wrong with it, it just wasn't anything special, especially for the price.

Calamari was soaking in that spicy sauce when we didn’t want it
Salad as meal was not fresh and wilted
Server Rob was really “put out” that we didn’t appreciate the lack of fresh food and put out that we didn’t want to order alcohol or dessert...
$81 for salads with shrimp/chicken.plus 1 appetizer:

Unfortunately for the prices, the food just wasn’t up to par. We have eaten here before and had better food. On our recent visit all the kids fried foods - popcorn shrimp and French fries - were soggy and limp. My BBQ shrimp was pretty good, hubbys fish special was just ok. They did take off 2 of the meals when the manager happened to come by and ask us how our meal was. That was a nice gesture, but for the prices I just don’t think we will make this an option next time we visit the area. The views and location are great, but the food should be better if we are going to pay the current prices.

Everything was great. Especially the service. Food was very good. Only disappointment was that we had eaten the same items before and they were different. They weren’t bad but we had been looking forward to what we had before. The food was still great!

Made this reservation several months ago to celebrate my mother’s 70th birthday. Requested the large boat table by the bar as we had celebrate my father’s 70th at the same table. Despite an early reservation, we were not accommodated. Food was very slow, lobster was tough, food was mediocre for the price. Shame, as we had such a nice time during the last “big” birthday celebration.
