Went to the Boat House on March 23, 2015 with my daughter. Got there about 3 and after looking at the menu decided to come back at 5 so we could select off the dinner menu. Walked along the waterfront and enjoyed the beautiful day. That was the best part. After returning and being seated we ordered our food, a filet mignon (med rare) and I ordered a pasta. The silver ware was dirty, had to hunt down our server, once we received our food, my daughter's steak was medium (too done) and my pasta was a soup, the sauce was literally a soup. Spoke to the manager who reordered our food, this time her steak was fine however the steak knife had caked up food residue on it. Gross. The manager gave us a whopping 20% discount. The food was not worth the $65 we paid for it, the place looks run down. I have dined there numerous times over the past 20 years.. terrible I would never go there again.

Went for lunch with some friends from out of town. Terrible service. One of my friends never got her meal. We could not find our server, In fact, she never came around at all to see if everything was OK; never checked to see if we needed our iced tea refilled, how our meal was, etc. Overall service from beginning to end was terrible. A good server would have noticed that there was one meal missing when the other meals were served and went right back to check on it. Not so here. After an unreasonably long wait, we had to ask another server to check on the order. By the time the manager showed up at our table, the rest of us were just about done with our meals. The manager did a poor job in compensating for the error. I have had lesser mistakes with better compensation in other restaurants. Not only did my friend not get a meal, their poor attitude ruined everyone's lunch and appetite.

Pros: none

You can always count on a decent meal at The Boathouse. What they lack in food quality they make up for with the view. The Lobster night packs a good crowd, but it's especially messy and not great. Friday night is Prime Rib night, which is better, but not always consistent. Cocktails can be pricey, and they talk you into getting a tall for just $2 more, but it's not really worth the extra money. Worth coming here at least once.

Pros: All tables have a nice view, parking available

Cons: Early happy hour, a lot of stairs to climb

Being fair, my food was decent, especially the bread at the beginning. After that, it goes down hill, our waitress was very friendly, when we saw her. Everything was overpriced, especially for the amount you got. The view of downtown at night is beautiful, too bad you cant see that from the stuck in the 70's restaurant. We were also disappointed in the fact that our gratuity was included for us. Now normally, if it was a large group, I understand, but there were two of us...to me, a tip is something I decide on, not the restauran

Dining here for Restaurant Week was such a great deal! It was only $20 for an appetizer, entree and dessert! And the portions aren't smaller either so it's not like they were skimping to make up for the price. It was quite busy for a Thursday night, but my husband and I enjoyed ourselves and the view was very nice too. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to others. We might even go back next week since they are having an encore of Restaurant Week!

I went here for the first time last night and I was pleasantly surprised! The lobster on wednesday is only about 12 dollars. The staff is really friendly, and they were easily able to accommodate our party of 20. The banana cream pie for dessert was also delicious! Its really pretty inside too.

THIS IS THE WORST RESTAURANT I HAVE BEEN TO EVER. A VERY LONG DRMATIC STORY SHORT, WE HAD AN HOUR AND A HALF WAIT TOTAL FROM SITTING TO FOOD COMING OUT, ALL 4 STEAK AND LOBSTER DISHES WERE COOKED WRONG, WHEN WE ASKED FOR A MANAGER THE "OWNER" CAME OUT AND THREW A BUNCH OF ATTITUDE ARGUING WITH US THAT WE HAD NOT BEEN THERE THAT LONG ALL ALONG ROLLING HIS EYES, WE TOLD HIM HE WAS BEING RUDE AND HE AGAIN EYES ROLLING TOLD US WE COULD LEAVE IF WE WANTED TOO. I WISH I COULD ACTUALLY HURT HIS BUSINEES FOR THE SCENE HE MADE AND EMBARRESD MY WHOLE FAMILY AT OUT MOTHERS DAY DINNER IN FRONT OF ALL OF THE OTHER CUSTOMERS. SERVICE=BAD, CRAMPED=BAD, OWNER AND MANAGER= RUDEST GUY I HAVE EVER MET. PLEASE DO NOT GO THERE, YOU WILL BE HUGELY DISSAPOINTED. I THOUGH GAY GUYS WERE SUPPOSED TO BE HAPPY AND NICE! NOT THIS GAY!

Cons: none

The Boathouse was the meeting place for a final goodbye and celebratory dinner after college graduation. It is a spacious restaurant on a round floor overlooking the harbor through a panaromic wall of windows. The atmosphere is elegant and enjoyable, while the food and drinks are delicious. Everything is presented wonderfully for a delightful evening experience.
