Always fabulous. I live near by and done at The Boathouse for lunch, dinner, brunch or just cocktails. The atmosphere is delightful. Beautiful, unique motif.
Lovely menu. Always something to find on the menu.
The staff is so very friendly, so accommodating.

The server we had was amazing! We were there on a Saturday night so it was generally super chaotic, but the service itself was great. Food was outstanding - the filet mignon and lobster I had made me extremely happy. It was my birthday and the server surprised me with a Disney happy birthday button and a cupcake! Overall, super recommend this place. Will definitely be back every time I come to the area.

The service was awful. The server just came to our table at lease twice. Didn’t ask if we wanted water or anything else. For the money pay there she could have been a better server

I had the coriander seared yellowfin tuna. It was cooked perfectly and the heat from the peppers and sriracha was phenomenal paired with a Stags Leap sauvignon blanc. I would have no problem stating this was the “Best tuna meal I ever ate”. We WILL be back!!!

Brunch was really amazing. The rolls were soft and the cinnamon butter that was drizzled on stayed on like firm icing like on some kinds of cinnamon rolls.

I opted for the avocado toast and a side of hash. For a drink I ordered the Duck Duck Razz.

Everything was great. The sing along piano was nice too.

My son and I sat outside on the covered patio and had a wonderful view. Our appetizer arrived before I received my glass of tea. Our water and bread arrived after the appetizer too. Great options on the kids menu. My shrimp boil was delicious and the portion was more than enough. The calamari is not worth $18. I will return but hope for better service.

We went to this restaurant to celebrate my niece’s birthday. The food was excellent and the service was great. We tried to make reservations for the next day but The Boathouse was booked. We will definitely make our reservations early next trip. Thanks for making us feel special.

We went to the Boathouse for my birthday dinner based on a recommendation from a friend. We arrived 15 minutes before our reservation and we’re seated at our reservation time despite it being very busy. Our appetizers were also great so things were off to a great start! We put our order in and after 45 minutes of waiting and seeing others around us, who were seated after us, get their meals before us we had to flag down a manager to get a status on our meal and get refills on our drinks which sat empty for a while. Once our food finally arrived (3 sandwiches) our food was so heavily covered in sauce we couldn’t even taste the meat - mahi in my case. Neither the waiter or the manager apologized for the delay nor offered any compensation. On top of that when we made the reservation we indicated it was for a birthday… they didn’t acknowledge the birthday or even offer dessert to us. Maybe it was an off day but at 4pm on a Sunday I wouldn’t expect this poor of service, especially of a “nice” restaurant.
