The Boathouse Restaurant - NY
Baked Stuffed Sole with Lobster Sauce
Sole with a seafood stuffing
Mixed greens, tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, and your choice of dressing
Wings served mild, medium, hot, or "Mikey V" hot with blue cheese and celery
Beautiful atmosphere, food is mediocre
Steak was overcooked & wrong sides with order. Dinner rolls were pretty bad. Enjoyed the seafood & good service together with the amazing view!
The waitress served our appetizers, then disappeared for about thirty minutes. The food was not hot when it came and it was tasteless. Terrible experience.
The staff was rushing us out at the end of the night. There are better ways to manage guests at restaurant closing
Our meal was very good and the atmosphere was very nice. The view of the lake was very nice. Our server was very nice. Her name was Erin. She was so very pleasant and helpful. Her service was over the top. Thank you Erin for helping our night be so very pleasant.
We enjoyed dining at The Boathouse north of Lake George Village. The menu is more limited than it was the last time we ate there.
Placed a request for outside dining for a party of five more than month ago, it was not accommodated by the staff when we were arrived. Told the server about omitting bacon from meals, ended up being served New England clam chowder soup with bacon, the server had to write it off the order, were served only entrees. The taste of food was mediocre for the price we paid. Limited menu options. The location of the restaurant and the views of the lake are great, but the food is overpriced and quality is not so great.
First I want to say the view was phenomenal. The atmosphere was energetic. The service was 5 stars. Our server did a wonderful job of explaining to us the menu and engaging with us. Now the food could use some help. The rolls tasted dry and not fresh out the oven. I had the Sole stuffed with lobster sauce on top and it was ok. I can’t say the taste was overwhelmingly great. My husband had the salmon with ginger sauce and he thought it was pretty good. As for the vegetable side, the broccoli was very tasty and the baked potato was nice and hot. I would still recommend the restaurant because of the view, ambiance and the atmosphere.
The food was delicious and we had very attentive service which was greatly appreciated :) Will definitely be going back
Steak and scallops were amazing!. Hot buttered rolls as well.
John makes a great cosmo.
Sit at the bar - best view!
I'll chalk this one up to the "time of Covid" as the selection was very slim. My burger covered in bacon and cheese was listed under "lite fare" and overcooked (I ordered a medium rare). I had hopes for the fries but alas, there wasn't a speck of salt on them. The resort itself was beautiful and it was nice to sit out with friends after dinner so all was not lost.
Awesome spot overlooking the water to boat watch and enjoy food and drinks.
The best ambiance and views on Lake George! Definitely our favorite destination in the area!
Noted it was a special occasion and requested a table for 2 with lake view. While it had a corner of the lake to view, it wasn’t a great setting and there were plenty of options available . Waitress brought bottle of wine to the table and just sat it unopened for us to open & pour. Meal was very mediocre and we only received 1 salad at same time the meal came out & the waitress made a weird comment that we only needed 1 salad. We actually ordered 2, received 1, and they did only charge for 1.
The food was way overpriced. I guess we paid for the view. My seafood stuffed sole had no seafood in the stuffing and my mashed potatoes had big chunks of potatoes in them.
I like to go to the boathouse because it’s close and has great lake views and I can boat to it. It’s always been a touch pricy, but this season (first trip there this year) they’ve raised the bar. 3 meals, 1 kids meal and 2 adult beverages was $175. Way too pricy. They really seemed to have cashed in with this seasons menu on people dying to get out….
The view was everything. Perfect way to enjoy the water.
The Boathouse continues to be on the top of our list for places to dine in Lake George. However, this past visit was slightly disappointing which may be due to the lack of employees. The food would have once again been outstanding, but I don't think the waitress brought it out on time and as a result our food was not as hot as it should have been. The wait staff was very friendly but may have been overworked due to shortage of staff. We will definitely visit again and give it another try.
disappointed did not honor our reservation that we had. Staff was not
honest after the reservation was made. Did not treat the customer very well. Poor established management.
Always lovely. Good food and fabulous view. Would like a more extensive menu. Miss their lobster roll.
Overall the experience was super. The menu did not agree with the one on line. We spent needless time postponing our arrival because on line we were informed that you were closed until 4:00.
If you expect people to trust your web sight, keep it up to date.
We had the Burger special and chicken wings. Good selection of local beer. Our waitress was pleasant and attentive. Our table had a great water front view of the lake. The menu was more limited and a bit more expensive than previous years.
Very nice setting by the lake. Food and service were good. Food and drink prices seemed high. Menu could have had a few more options. We did enjoy our dinner.
We ordered the lobster rolls which were very good and worth the cost. Other food was just ok. Price of food didn’t match ambience, cool being near the dock but really not that nice a set up. Service was OK.
Love the Boathouse. It’s a must every time we’re in the area.
We made reservations well and advance and requested sitting outside. That request was overlooked I think as the two parties in front of us were seated outside but we weren’t. This was fine as I know it was a request 🙂
Once seated we waited for about 20 minutes for our waitress to come over. The hostess seated several other tables after us that were brought water and asked for drink orders. She saw us and asked if we had been helped, we said no and a waitress came over. We ordered our drinks and appetizer. Both were amazing but we were never brought water and had to ask for it twice. My husbands beer was splashed on the table. I think our waitress was new. She apologized but never offered to wipe up the table. It spill stayed there the rest of our dining experience.
I asked about specials and she said she wasn’t sure what they were and I could check the board up front. After waiting so long I didn’t want to not put in our order for our food so I just ordered off the menu.
She took our order for dinner and the food came out fairly quickly. We were just finishing up our appetizers, which was great.
We were never brought out break with our steak and fish entrees. We had to ask for it but it never came.
We waited about 45 minutes after eating to get our check.
Overall the food was amazing but the service was not good at all. We were very disappointed as this was our anniversary and reservations were made well in advance.
I do hope we can make this right and visit your establishment again.
Beautiful scenery , good food , perfect for a date night . This is my 3rd time coming back .
They need to keep the screen doors open so you have a better view of the lake. Really wanted to sit outside maybe next tims
Food bland, cold, and overpriced. Menu limited. Would never eat here again.
Food was just horrible, five of us and not one person enjoyed their dinner or even ate more than half. Very disappointed. These lake restaurants need to step it up and start being better at what they do and more customer friendly.
Good food and right on the water. Service was a little slow.
Amazing experience and the waitstaff and management were top notch! What an experience!! You made our date night!!!
Great experience, loved the food and the atmosphere
Menu was very limited and food not good. Did not serve what was listed on the website.
The food was over priced and the server could use some training.
It was lively. The food was pricey but tasty
The location is really great. But the food doesn’t match the expectations. It’s covid time they may have some issues finding the right cooks and helpers.
Great food, great location and good social distancing practices!
The restaurant was very hot inside there was no A/C
Awesome service, delicious food, and the view was just perfect.
