We always love the Boathouse. The patio is a great spot to sit and enjoy a drink and some live music. The view is wonderful and the heaters make it enjoyable even when it's chilly out. The bar is lively and friendly. The restaurant has a great menu. We can always count on the oysters being fresh and the steaks being cooked just as ordered. The wine list is adequate with lots of good choices. This is one of our go-to places for dates or special occasions.

I hosted my future sister-in-law's bridal brunch here this past Saturday, 2/17/18, and everything from beginning to end was absolutely perfect! We sat out on the patio and it was just beautiful. I was able to decorate our table and they allowed us to bring our own dessert for her. The service was on point and at the same time, we were allowed to enjoy our time together without constantly being disturbed. The food was amazing! All of our dishes were plated beautifully and tasted just as stellar. I couldn't have asked for a more spectacular time! Thank you, guys!

The food was phenomenal. The crab cakes are nicely rich with a wonderful sauce that helps pull the appetizer together quiet pleasantly. I ordered the miso Chilean sea bass, literally the best piece of fish I’ve ate my entire life. A well flavored, buttery filet that melted in my mouth. The live entertainment was a huge plus for me as well. A magician came over to our table while we waited for our food & he made the experience that much more special. I might even try to hire him for an event. He was spectacular. Overall amazing experience.

Came with my wife to celebrate Valentine’s Day. She’s very picky when it comes to seafood- however she devoured the Chilean Sea Bass! I too, enjoyed my Coffee-Rubbed Prime Beef! Our waitress was very attentive which made the experience even more pleasant! Our evening turned out great! Thank you!

Lovely to look at but the food was less than average and extremely overpriced. Amazing that at a seafood restaurant the steak was actually better than the salmon. The fish was dry and tasteless. Brussel spouts were large, tough and chewy. Mashed potatoes were best thing on the plate. The location if fantastic but the food disappointing.

They had a sweet 16 that day so our table was not ready. They ended up putting us outside in the bar area. If I’m going to get a babysitter and take july wife out for a nice dinner and even go as far asking a reservation I should be told of the risk of not getting a table because of a special event that is being hosted at your location. I felt like the hostess was trying to sell us on how great the bar area was hoping we would agree. If I’m spending $300 on dinner I don’t expect to be sitting next to a portable heater hoping that half my faces doesn’t melt off as the other half freezes. Service by both waitress was good and the food was as well. Disappointed overall

It was wonderful. The only thing was the patio booths aren’t comfortable for 4 plate settings.

The weekend daytime menu is limited to breakfast until Noon. There is a limited lunch menu from Noon to 1PM and finally the lunch menu with salads at 1PM. This is a missed opportunity to let customers order what they want starting from the time the restaurant opens. Not sure I would go back except for the views of the bay.

Worst service ever. We were seated about 30 mins before anyone came to the table, the waitress took our drink order and again we didn't see her for about 30 mins.. she came back with the drinks and thought she had already taken our food order.. Not sure what her problem was , very scattered, she didn't have a clue. She finally got the order out to us after a long wait . We won't be returning ever!!

The service was not good. We repeatedly had asked for water. Items ordered were forgotten.
Twice we got up to get our own water.

The Filet/Lobster was excellent. We arrived on-time and the table was ready. The hostess was very nice. The server was very nice and gave us the appropriate time to finish the appetizers before bringing the main course. All of the food was excellent. The location is great for viewing the harbor. Parking is ample and easy to get to.

The service was wonderful but the food had a lot to be desired. Their special was prime rib, asked for it rare, server came back and said that they only had medium rare would that be ok? We said if it’s closer to rare then medium great, if not se’ll order something else. He came back told us on the rare side. We said fine. Long story short it was almost well done, poorly seasoned and the sides really were bad and tasteless.
