The lobster roll was delicious! The panko cod was very fresh and yummy. Everything was great including the service. TIL was our server and she made sure everything was good and even surprised my daughter with a dessert for her birthday when she was her birthday pin . Can’t wait to go back during our next trip.

The oysters and lobster bisque were the best ever. We did not purchase any wine because they do not have a wine cellar with climate control for their fine wines.

Our service was WONDERFUL. We went to celebrate my boyfriends birthday and they even gave him a free DELICIOUS cupcake with happy birthday written on the plate. Drinks were great, food was great, everything was great! It was our first time there and we were VERY PLEASED! :).

We had such a wonderful time celebrating our son's 6th birthday at The Boathouse! I let them know ahead of time on our reservation that we'd be celebrating. Our son was so surprised to sit in the big boat in the center of the room for his birthday dinner! Our server finished off the dinner with a shark cupcake for our son. Dinner and service were incredible. Thank you for helping us make a lasting memory!

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.

Our waitress was spectacular- very kind and attentive. My friend with whom I was dining had some significant allergies and she was very careful to write them all down and check with the chef. She also recommended a delicious dessert not on the menu for her and I.
