Soup of the Day
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.
Restaurant was recommended by Paul at the local Chamber of Commerce & The Marriott Courtyard!
Overall a Fantastic Dining Experience visiting from Buffalo NY👍👍👍
A bit expensive and a little loud. Beautiful view of the lake and food was good
Always a good meal and good service
Nice view, fun drink menu, good, reliable food. Had hoped for more variety for lunch, mostly sandwiches, salads and burgers. Lovely property, steep drive snd walk to the restaurant.
The service was prompt but not particularly friendly. The food was OK but not great. The view was excellent. I would recommend to people who want a beautiful view of the lake.
Waited one hour and 20 minutes for our dinner. The restaurant ended up paying for our dinners because of the long delay but it didn’t make up for the inconvenience. The noise level was horrible as there was a party of approximately 20 people near us shouting over each other just to be heard. The wait staff was apologetic and said this was not a normal night. It seemed that their kitchen could not accommodate a large party plus regular customers. Our reservation was made several months ago and we wish that they would have just cancelled our reservation if they could not prepare meals for that many people ordering at the same time. Although the food was excellent, we probably would not return.
great location, right on the lake. Food was good but nothing to write home about.
Nice addition was the Octoberfest menu!
We arrived a little early for our reservation and opted to wait in the lounge area for a table. We requested an outdoor table. Lounge was loud, but acceptable. Once we were finally seated, well after our reservation time, we sat for over 20 minutes without any service. Finally our server, Tracy, came and took our drink order and told us someone would be by with water and bread. We then waited another 10 mintues for water, no bread. Tracy came and took our order and still no bread. We finally made the decision that we couldn't stay. We offered to pay for our drinks and leave. The manager was apologetic, but the entire experience was deplorable. We spent our 31st anniversary down the street at another local restaurant, not the one we had driven over 3 hours for. The folks at table next to us shared similar story on their wait. I would not recommend this restaurant.
Dined during the off season so we had our choice of seating. Beautiful outside table looking over the lake. Staff was welcoming and friendly. Food was fine but not outstanding. Would return though if we visit again.
Great lakefront find in Lake George/Bolton Landing area! The restaurant is on the same property as Crest Haven Lodges (which looks really nice!) As we drove down the steep driveway to the parking lot for the restaurant, we were promptly greeting by a young man with a golf cart to drive us to the restaurant-down the rest of the steep hill. When we walked in the restaurant we were promptly greeted & brought to our table. Our server Jen couldn't have been nicer! She was very helpful with menu selections (gluten free included!) Our food & drinks were very good! Highly recommend if you're in the area!
Wonderful meal and Kelly was the very best!
We had an open table reservation and they let us waited 30min. With a table near the entrance.
Service was slow and the food is an average.
Overall it’s good to try,but won’t go back again.
Small outside patio - 3 tables. Celebrating anniversary and seated table with 18 month child next to us (within 5 feet). Cute but .....
The Boathouse Restaurant just isn’t what it used to be. The quality of food has gone down but the prices have not. It used to be a “nicer” restaurant - a place to go to avoid the basic bar food of Lake George Village establishments; but it’s now right along with them. Mediocre food for higher prices, sticky tables and so-so drinks. They still have a great location for a lake view if that’s all you care about. We are removing it from our Lake George must do’s. Sorry Boathouse :(
Sit on the back deck...and get the Lobster Roll...you will not be disappointed.
A beautiful view! Live entertainment! Good food!
Great Food ,service, and overall night out with family. Live music on deck. great views of Lake George.
Family dinner for 8 people. Quick and friendly service. Delicious food and beautiful view.
Unfortunately, we were in a room near a table with 7-8 unruly children. With the noise level and children running around the room, it was near impossible to enjoy our dinner. I understand going on vacation with friends and family but, if your children are going to misbehave the entire time, you shouldn’t be in a restaurant where other patrons have to endure your lack of respect. We were there 8/19 at 6:15. Maybe too early! I must say the food was good and there were children that were well behaved. It was just this table.
Food was too spicy. Our waitress, Kelly, was outstanding.
The Boat House was great. We sat right on the water, live music was playing at the bar, our food was good and I highly recommend the lobster roll and the Tomahawk steak!
