My family celebrated my mom's 80th birthday at the Boathouse on the Bay. We had a window table with a fabulous view of the marina. The service was outstanding, and the waiter knew, due to my note in the reservation, that it was my mom's birthday; he didn't need any reminders. He brought a lovely, light dessert with a candle for her and extra utensils for us, for sharing. Overall, the lunch was excellent.

The service was very good and friendly. The food was good, although both myself and guest did not care for stacking the protein atop the rest of the plates veges and potatoes.

Celebrated New Year's Eve with friends. The Emperors rock n roll band was playing all night long. Fun to dance to. Service was very good considering the crowd. Food selections great. Lamb, sea bass, lobster tail , filet were what people ordered at our table as their entree. Crab cakes were especially good as the starter as were the oysters on the half shell and lollipop sushi. I chose the flan for dessert and it was tasty. Good evening for all.

The only issue we have is in the advertising. It was News Years Eve and the Advertising stated:
Price Fixed 4pm -6pm $75; after 6 pm - $95.
Our reservation was for 3:45 pm and we arrived and were seated by 3:30 pm. The menu offered was the $75 price fixed. No arguments.

We had a lovely lunch, rough start though. Our wait staff was either new or was bummed for working today. Ordering seemed to be a challenge,. In that our wait staff would.tell us what kind d of oysters they had and then walk away immediately, then we had to request her back to your table so we could order something. This happened several times. After we finished ordering, we had a great time. Good food and ambiance.

We chose The Boathouse because of its location and our previous experience for lunches and drinks. It was our 40th anniversary, a very special occasion. Sadly it was one of the most disappointing meals both my husband and I have ever had. I ordered the scallops dish.$ 37. There were 4 scallops with a serving of spaetzl. The dis had no taste. It was like eating mush. My husband ordered the halibut. It was so overcooked that he couldn't cut it. He had wanted to have prime rib but the waiter said all they had left was medium because it was cooked the day before!! This was on Sunday evening at 6:00pm. We complained and were offered another entree but we were so upset by this time that all we wanted to do was leave. They did bring us a dessert to share because of our anniversary and did not charge us. We will not go there again for dinner, ever.

This is my first Open Table review, and I must start by saying our Thanksgiving meal was a bit of a disaster. We came for the third and last seating at 6:00, the kitchen and staff were clearly overwhelmed, and many of the food options ran out over the course of our meal. BUT the waitstaff could not have been nicer. We saw people shout at them, berate them, and I'm pretty certain one of ours disappeared to cry more than once. But they graciously comped a significant portion of our meal, apologized profusely, and thanked us for our kindness, really. This seemed to strain the kitchen, but the food we got was very good, and we will be back. Be humane, people. Waitstaff are not chattel.

Thanksgiving dinner: Waited an hour and a half for appetizer. Got the wrong appetizer and was assured several times the right one was on its way. Never came. Ordered the Turkey dinner and was served a plate of what seemed to be dark meat scraps and giblets - didn't eat it. This was two hours later. Was told they were out of three of four dessert choices. Charged full price without even an apology. Left two and a half hours later and hungry. Will be sure to tell all of my friends.

Beautiful views, great ambiance. I was expecting just a little more from the food considering the prices at this place in general but I guess you’re paying for the location. Food was good but I was expecting excellent. They were out of the dessert I wanted and took a long time to come back to tell me but otherwise service was great. Would come back and recommend to others.
