We stayed at the marina and had dinner at Boathouse Grille. The view is lovely, the service unremarkable and the food good but not great. I had the seafood pot pie and it was tasty with a decent amount of crab, small scallops and shrimp....More

One of my favorite spots! Everyone there is very friendly and welcoming! The views are stunning and make for a beautiful backdrop to any meal! The live music, great food, and even better company make it an amazing place to spend an evening!

This is a seasonal restaurant on the Hudson River and has docks in which passing by boats can dock for passengers to eat. We had a fantastic visit from the start. We visited on a Sunday ~6pm and greeted promptly by a friendly staff member....More

We have been here many times and always enjoy it. It is being able to have dinner on the Hudson near Albany that brings us back, but the food is good too. The menu is not especially creative, but it is fine. It is watching...More

Mr. Donovan. Thank you for your response to my review. First, I seldom dine in downtown Chicago. Second, we dined at your restaurant with a local couple, and they did in fact complain about the meal. The management response was that we were "causing trouble". We were there on July 28. While I appreciate your concern, in seems to have a slightly hollow ring to it.
